9780521797290: The Forging of Races: Race and Scripture in the Protestant Atlantic World, 1600-2000

This book revolutionises our understanding of race. Building upon the insight that races are products of culture rather than biology, Colin Kidd demonstrates that the Bible - the key text in Western culture - has left a vivid imprint on modern racial theories and prejudices. Fixing his attention on the changing relationship between race and theology in the Protestant Atlantic world between 1600 and 2000 Kidd shows that, while the Bible itself is colour-blind, its interpreters have imported racial significance into the scriptures. Kidd's study probes the theological anxieties which lurked behind the confident facade of of white racial supremacy in the age of empire and race slavery, as well as the ways in which racialist ideas left their mark upon new forms of religiosity. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the histories of race or religion.

Recensione:

'There is an uncomfortable history to be written of what might be called progressive or scientific racism as well as of religiously motivated varieties; Colin Kidd's recent monograph, The Forging of Races. Race and Scripture in the Protestant Atlantic World, 1600–2000, is a very distinguished beginning to this study.' Archbishop Rowan Williams

'After a spirited opening chapter on the illusory nature of racial thinking, Kidd discusses the many (sometimes unintended) collisions between theology and race in the early modern period … he plunges into an admirable plain-speaking exploration of some burning questions … this is an intellectual history which rarely wanders …' London Review of Books

'On the one side, there has been the massive if contested authority of the bible and, on the other, a remorseless racism. Colin Kidd has valuably decided to plot the relationship between these two foci of modern belief and thought.' The Historical Journal

'This is a rich and fascinating analysis which will repay study by all those interested in the history of the intersection and mutual interpretation of 'white' and 'black' cultures.' The Round Table

'… Kidd provides a wealth of stimulating comment on the relations between biblical study, slavery, ethnology, language study, religious affiliations and physiology. … Important for what it says on the significance of studying theology in context, this work deserves to attract a large readership well outside religious history.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History

Descrizione del libro:

This book explores the way in which religious ideas have shaped British and American thinking about race between 1600 and 2000. It shows that the Bible has been just as influential as science over the last few centuries in forging racial attitudes and identities.
