Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of names of authors, reference articles and books relevant to discussion of how sociology of religion developed in America. The sociologists organized themselves in a professional society in 1906, transforming a caucus inside the American Economic Association into a free-standing American Sociological Society. They placed little emphasis on the study of religious activity. There was something called Christian Sociology that was concerned with social reform, but the professional sociologists wanted to dissociate themselves from any such thing.

Keywords: American Economic Association; American Sociological Society; Christian Sociology
