In the 18th and early 19th centuries, “church discipline” was a forum in which many Protestant Kentuckians sought redress of grievances rather than the court system, which gave church meetinghouses a central role in maintaining communities’ social peace and local law.  By the 1830s, however, internal disputes on doctrine and other external forces led many congregations to reimagine church authority.  Join our conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Perry as we discuss this often-forgotten time in Kentucky history.
