Join historian Matthew Avery Sutton for a discussion of the rise of a colorful and charismatic group of radical Protestants in the early 20th century. Avery Sutton explores how this group felt the United States was besieged by Satanic forces—like secularism, family breakdown, and government encroachment—and took to the pulpit and airwaves to explain how prophecies of Biblical end times made sense of a ravaged modern world. By the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan and conservative Republicans appropriated these evangelical ideas, challenging the pragmatic tradition of governance through compromise and consensus.

Matthew Avery Sutton is the Edward R. Meyer Distinguished Professor at Washington State University and author of American Apocalypse: a History of Modern Evangelicalism.

Lectures are offered at 10 am and 2 pm.
