Throughout history, mankind has had the ever-recurring dream of creating perfection. In America, many of these dreams were put to the severe test of reality. More than religious and socialistic communities were formed in the nineteenth century alone, in a widespread movement that involved overmen, women, and by: Sir Thomas More wrote Utopia indescribing a perfect political and social system on an imaginary island.

This book popularized the modern definition of "Utopia" as being any place or situation of ideal perfection. The 19th-century utopian sects can trace their roots back to the Protestant Reformation.

In a recently published book (hot off the press this year), a professor of history at Illinois State University claims that America’s culture wars are over. Or at least they should be. A War for the Soul of America, by Andrew Hartman, is a history of the struggle against cultural change that has occurred in America.

Utopian Religions in America: The Shakers, the Oneida Perfectionists and the Mormons, an Issue of Survival Abstract The Mormon Church has attracted many new members to its religion since its inception and has grown into a world religion.

However, the Shakers only have a few remaining members, and the Oneida Perfectionists have none. This is a list of utopian literature. A utopia is a community or society possessing highly desirable or perfect qualities. It is a common literary theme, especially in speculative fiction and science fiction.

These ideas found reception among the drafters of the American Constitution. Freedom of religion, guaranteed in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, attracted European groups who were persecuted in their own countries. Arriving in America, some of these colonists hoped to form Utopian societies.

List of Famous Utopian Novels. Utopia () by Thomas More represents one of the most important books in the European humanism.

Through his book, he described fictional pagan, communist city-state that was governed by reason, and addressed the issues of religious pluralism, women's rights, state-sponsored education, colonialism, and justified warfare.

Hythloday's account of the state of religion in Utopia reveals numerous points of resemblance to Christianity but also some striking differences from certain religious practices in His remote islanders believe in one supreme and omnipotent deity, and their belief in immortality is very strong.

The 19th century is said to have been a golden age for American utopianism. Most of the earliest such communities were religious. Beginning in the late 18th century, a Protestant sect known as the Shakers established more than a dozen communal settlements in the eastern United States.

Religion, Society, and Utopia in Nineteenth-Century America By Ira L. Mandelker University of Massachusetts Press, Librarian's tip: Part III "The Oneida Community: A Utopian Resolution of the Tension between Religion and World".

For me, utopia is a term that no one uses anymore. It was a term that made sense in the nineteenth century, particularly in America where many utopias were spawned by the sense that the millennium was around the corner and Christ was coming back to earth.

Utopias tried to recreate the conditions of heaven on earth. But, as Ira L. Mandelker writes, some nineteenth-century utopian idealists, like the members of the Oneida Community in New York, took up deeply unconventional sexual arrangements based specifically on their religious beliefs.

Mandelker writes that there had always been tension around sex in American Protestantism. The Oneida Community between and John Humphrey Noyes () led the community.

The Oneida Community was a perfectionist religious communal society founded by John Humphrey Noyes in in Oneida, New community believed that Jesus had already returned in AD 70, making it possible for them to bring about Jesus's millennial kingdom themselves, and be free of sin .The first utopian novel by an American woman, and the first to be set in a different time rather than a remote and inaccessible place.
