Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation examines the academic, social, and political dimensions of teaching of psychology of religion at higher theological liberal Protestantism education in United States of America during the period of 1899 to 1927. The theoretical constructs to analyze the data are based on historical and epistemological analysis. The primary and secondary source documents are examined from the perspectives of Marxist, neo-marxist, history of mentalities or culture, critical pedagogy and, social and ideological reproduction theories. This dissertation demonstrates the connections between the teaching of psychology of religion, functional psychology and modern liberal capitalism ideology at the end of XIX century and early XX century.
