Philip Gorski

Philip Gorski is currently putting the finishing touches on a short book, entitled “American Babylon: Christianity and Democracy Before and After Trump.” It situates white evangelical support for Donald Trump within the deeper historical context of the always ambivalent relationship between Christianity an democracy, both within Western Europe and the United States. In the spring, he will begin working on two new projects, one on the history of Christian nationalism and a second on how American Protestant theology has been durably shaped by the history of white supremacism.
