Question by James F: What is the connection between the ideas of the age of Enlightenment and the Great Awakening?
I know that the Enlightenment challenged the role of God and allowed people to see that they were important and had the ability to shape their own lives.

The Great Awakening saw traditional authority of the clergy being challenged and eventually it made it easier to challenge the authority of the King. This movement also led to creation of different sects and denominations, and advocated religious tolerance.

But I still don’t fully understand the direct connection between the two movements.

If someone could please help :) Thanks

The idea that men were equal went again the grain of the whole feudal/class system. Once people started believing that they were not inferior and did not have to be at the bottom just because they were born of lower class people, things started to unravel.

Since religion has often been used to support political platforms, the Great Awakenings have exerted significant influence on the politics of America. Joseph Tracy, the minister and historian who gave this religious phenomenon its name in his influential (and still, to many, definitive) 1842 book The Great Awakening, saw the First Great Awakening as a precursor to the War of Independence .
