Abstract

While there is no doubt that the prophet Neolin, in seeking to reform Delaware religious culture, drew upon ideas borrowed from EuroAmerican Christians, scholars have often overlooked or understated the ways in which Neolin incorporated those ideas into an indigenous context and added elements which resonated with traditional themes. This article analyzes the interplay of traditional and alien elements in Neolin's thought.
