From 1818-1885, the rapidly growing United States saw the emergence of many new church communities, and Sunday school was a central part of many youths’ experience of church. This collection features a broad cross-section of Sunday school literature that was read in churches and at home.
The Sunday School Periodicals, 1818-1885 collection also contains training and preparation materials for teachers. Subjects covered in these publications include Bible and catechism lessons, music, and poetry from a broad range of religious groups across every region of the expanding nation. In addition, the collection includes literature representing many church communities covering Baptist, Methodist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, United Brethren, Unitarian, Lutheran, Church of God, Mormon, and various Sunday school unions.
