"In the New England of the eighteenth century the ministry was a much esteemed position, almost a form of public office, which was in fact supported by public funds. Most ministers spent their entire careers as the moral guardians of one community. But by the 1850s the New England ministry had become a profession in the modern sense: a minister offered a specialized service to a self-selected clientele which would not hesitate to dismiss him if it was dissatisfied with his service. Through a sophisticated analysis of the various sources of religious history, Scott relates the process of professionalization to the changes in the broad culture. " INDEX.
