The origins of this volume lie in a semester-long symposium held during the fall of 2007 at Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk, Virginia, entitled "From Jamestown to Jefferson: The Evolution of Religious Authority in Colonial Virginia." The symposium was sponsored by the college's Center for the Study of Religious Freedom.
