About this Item
- James Madison & the Social Utility of Religion: Risks vs. Rewards
- James Hudson discussed the role of religion in the life of James Madison at this a symposium celebrating the 250th anniversary of Madison's birth. Thomas Jefferson overshadowed his close friend and coadjutor James Madison in many ways, but in one, at least, Madison was demonstrably superior to his Monticello neighbor--in his ability to keep his religious views private. He divulged so much about so sensitive a subject for one reason only: to defend himself against Federalist charges, broadcast in the election of 1800, that he was an atheist.
