Abstract

The article takes issue with the received narrative by arguing that, during the 1950s, a secularizing process was underway in the United States. In making this case, the author examines the rise of bingo, Sunday shopping, Billy Graham, and the Revised Standard Version of the Bible.

Le présent article s'insurge contre le narratif reçu en faisant valoir que, durant les années 1950, un processus de sécularisation était en cours aux Etats-Unis. En exposant son point de vue, l'auteur examine l'arrivée du bingo, du magasinage le dimanche, de Billy Graham, et de la version standard révisée de la bible.
