Nineteenth Century Collections Online is the most ambitious scholarly digitization and publication program ever undertaken, providing full-text, searchable content from a broad range of sources, offering never before possible research opportunities for one of the most studied historical periods.

Nineteenth Century Collections Online: Religion, Spirituality, Reform And Society examines the influence of both faith and skepticism on the shaping of many aspects of society---politics, law, economics, and social and radical reform movements. In the 19th century, the intellectual work of Comte, Marx, Weber, Darwin, Freud, and others unleashed secularizing impulses that gave rise to both new humanist religious projects and new faith-based social reform movements. The heightened interest in the perfection of man, the power of science, and the confidence in social progress also had an impact. Alongside Comte's positivist "religion of humanity," utopian collectives, and settlement houses, there grew a new fascination with alternative spiritual and mystical practices.

This archive provides essential documentary materials that explore religious and philosophical movements in reaction to dramatic changes in culture and society wrought by the industrial revolution and modernity. Topics covered include positivism and anti-positivism, freethinking, the cooperative movement, alternative Christianities, and the application of the social principles of Christianity to everyday life by a variety of denominations.
