Samford University associate professor of history Jason Wallace presented at the St. George Tucker Society Annual Scholarly Meeting in Augusta, Ga., earlier this fall.

             Dr. Wallace presented a paper on a portion of his book, Catholics, Slaveholders, and the Dilemma of American Evangelicalism, 1835-1860. The paper was entitled “Southern Evangelical Dilemmas.”

             “In short, southern evangelicals sought to give religious justification to a conservative social vision, yet, as evangelicals, they held certain Protestant religious presuppositions that undermined their conservatism,” said Wallace.

             Samford history professor John Mayfield served on the program committee that helped coordinate the St. George Tucker Society annual meeting.
