Chapter Summary

The historians of the new Atlantic history claim to reevaluate and rearrange social boundaries. Inside the oceanic network of networks both social formations and symbolic communities surfaced, the former distinct from their social surroundings through dense clustering, the latter through cultural constructs of belonging and being different. A new Atlantic religious history would be ill-advised to ignore the results of one or more of these leading interpretive approaches. Newman and the court preachers maintained frequent and intense ties to Halle that went beyond the Ebenezer colonial project to include enterprises in Pennsylvania and Southern India. The infrastructural situation of the individual members of a community of communication is often overlooked.
