Part of the NONE Series


Two Worlds The Protestant Culture of Nineteenth-Century Ontario by William Westfall

Religion was at the heart of Ontario life for many years. In Two Worlds, Westfall examines the origin, character, and social significance of the powerful and distinctive Protestant culture that grew and flourished in Southern Ontario in the mid-Victorian period.


Westfall has placed religion back into the centre of the interpretation of nineteenth-century Ontario history, where it undoubtedly belongs.

Peter Buitenhuis, Globe & Mail.

The general excellence of the research is matched by the grace with which it has been written.

Julian Gwyn, Ottawa Citizen.
