April 28 - Who Ended Slavery? Secularization in Context
Dr. Hector Avalos, Professor of Religious Studies, Iowa State University

A number of prominent writers have claimed that Christian and biblical ethics were ultimately responsible for the abolition of slavery in Africa and the New World. Dr. Hector Avalos, in contrast, argues that biblical arguments against slavery began to be abandoned by abolitionists themselves because the pro-slavery side actually had an advantage in biblical support for slavery.  Thus, more secularized forms of argumentation, which rested on universalized humanitarian and legal premises, became more attractive in abolitionist movements.  The lecture is based on his book, Slavery, Abolitionism and the Ethics of Biblical Scholarship (2011).
