dc.descriptionThis study is concerned with the life and times of Jesse Mercer, a prominent Baptist minister of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in Georgia. Mercer was not only prominent in religion, but also sufficiently eminent in education and philanthropy to have a university named after him--a university which has been in existence since 1833. This dissertation, however, has not been undertaken on the theory that Mercer was one of the great Americans of his period--history does not grant him that importance. A study of Mercer's life is valuable chiefly in offering insight into the problems of his times.
