He arrived at Kent State to start his Ph. D program one day after the campus shootings. As an intellectual historian, Stout was very familiar with the content of the things that his historical subjects communicated, but until he read Walter J.
Ong he had not thought deeply about how this content was communicated. Though he sides with those historians who oppose Miller's conviction that the piety of New Englanders declined during the course of the 17th century, he accepts the proposition - which others have questioned - that an unprecedented wave of revivals constituting a ''Great Awakening'' did sweep the colonies in the middle decades of the 18th century, a phenomenon that can only be understood as a transforming event if some sort of religious slumber preceded it.

They record, as Mr. Stout recognizes, a shift from the minority status of Puritanism in England to its establishment as a state-sanctioned orthodoxy in New England.
