different religions started to appear, with different points of view of the usual Christianity, but with some base on it. For example the Arminianism and Deism, the second religion believed that God himself withdrew from the world after creating it, leaving it to work according to scientific laws without any divine intervention. The Deists, trusted that the best way to perform a religious devotion was to study the workings of nature, rather than the usual worship at churches. The Great Awakening was divided in series of revivals. By that time, the church already had lost a lot of followers, and it decreased heavily on it taxes income. Those revivals were led by ministers, which “redrew the religious landscape of the colonies”. Although the revivals were made to bring back the spiritual and lack of engagement of the people at church, it brought a lot of social tensions, also questioning forms of authority and bringing criticism of the aspects of the colonial society. Also, a few preachers condemned slavery, which was an idea that was going to erupt soon at the colonies. “The revivals broadened the range of religious alternatives available to Americans, thereby leaving them more divided than before and at the same time more fully integrated into transatlantic religious developments”.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
