What religions were in the southern colonies?

Answer

Religions in the southern colonies were the bases of life. The reasons the colonies were founded were to procure religious freedom. Granted, some of the colonies broke away from this founding, but colonies like Maryland were founded specifically to be a haven of religious freedom to all Christians. This means that you could go there and worship the jesus and none would stop you. But mostly the main religion in the southern colonies were the Anglican faith.

Who is involved in the Great Awakening?

The Great Awakening occurred from the 1730s to 1770s. The religious community of the Puritans, Congregationalists, Catholics, and Anglicans were known as the old lights. The new lights were converts during the Great Awakening, such as the Baptists and Methodists. For the first time, African Americans and Indians were drawn to Protestism. They developed the idea that worshipping God could be done by attending Mass and listening to sermons. The African Americans and Native Americans were highly concerned about evangelizing, but this boosted the esteem of women in America. Women were praised for having such a strong Christian piety. Those of the higher profile helped guide churches, minister church members, and brought forth the religious messages to the unconverted. As a result of the Great Awakening religion was democratized.

What was the main purpose of the Great Awakening?

The main purpose of both the 1st Great Awakening (1730-1755) and the 2nd Great Awakening (1790-1840) was to inspire religious revivals within communites throughout the Original Thirteen Colonies and later the US, whom pastors had felt had gotten away from God. It started under strong preaching under Johnathan Edwards and George Whitefield under the messages that sin had destroyed Anglo-American culture and only God could save them by grace. Thousands came to Christ during these series of revivals and the Protestant churches, typically Methodists and Baptists, grew rapidly during these periods.
