This course will consider a number of key historical episodes in which American religious figures claimed to receive divine revelation. From the ad hoc prophets (such as Anne Hutchinson and Tenskwatawa) to the scripture writers (such as Joseph Smith and Ellen White), from the African American organizers (including Nat Turner and Father Divine) to the advocates of natural revelation (including Theodore Parker and Margaret Fuller), this course will examine the contexts, contents and implications of the claim that God still speaks to Americans.
