This chapter focuses on various efforts made towards sanctifying slavery. These efforts shaped the relationship between the growth of Southern separatism and religion. It presents several assumptions related to religious proslavery beliefs. Slavery was identified with religion and morality using a biblical defence. The chapter presents a detailed discussion related to the development of a slaveholding ethic and religious missions directed at sanctifying slavery. Evangelicalism played a vital role in the idea of having a religious mission towards the slaves. The chapter also provides a description of the Christian code of conduct for slaveholders.
