Summary

This book is about Robert Matthews, who, in the 1830s in New York, "proclaimed himself to be the prophet Matthias. He became the center of a communal, patriarchal cult. . . . Matthias was eventually tried for the murder of a follower {merchant Elijah Pierson}." (Libr J)

Written by distinguished historians with the force of a novel, this book reconstructs the web of religious ecstasy, greed, and seduction within the cult of the Prophet Matthias in New York in 1834 and captures the heated atmosphere of the religious revival known as the Second Great Awakening.
