The Old Puritan and a New Nation: Roger Sherman and the Creation of the American Republic

I propose to write a short, critical account of the political and legal philosophy of Roger Sherman. The book will contribute to the literature on the founding era by shedding light on an underappreciated and yet tremendously significant founder. Notably, it will cover elements of Sherman that have heretofore been largely ignored—his political theory, his constitutional and jurisprudential ideas, and the relationship between his religious views and his political actions. Central to my argument is that Sherman’s political/legal ideas and actions are best understood in light of his deeply held theological convictions
