This is a story of religious and democratic covenants and controversies in the foundations of the American nation and in the soul of its colleges and universities. Its powers are religion and politics in America, the creeds and convictions constituting the beliefs and theologies of citizens and religious people. Critically overlapping and entangled democratic beliefs and convictions distinctly define the American body politic and are in the foundation of the nation and its colleges and universities. In that story, an unmistakable feature and idea is that the religion of the Republic in America is intertwined with and parallel to a symbiotic religion of the academy in its colleges and universities. The nation and its colleges share the same space, history, and religious and democratic heralds and heroes. Democratic and political theories and philosophies, and competing and cooperating religious faiths and impulses, have been reflected both the Republic and in battles waged about the essential nature of the American nation and its colleges and universities. These traits constitute how America, its public and its citizens, in and outside the gates of the academy, have wrestled with the aspirations and ideals that define civic duty, the commons, and the common good.
