The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893: How Judaism Became A World Religion
 
The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893 hosted the World’s Parliament of Religions, the first gathering of its kind. Up to then, the American idea of a “world” religion was Christianity. Thanks to Jewish leaders speaking at this well-publicized platform, Judaism and other less-known traditions were seen in a new and brighter light.
 
Dr. Konden Smith Hansen is Lecturer of Religious Studies at the University of Arizona, specializing in American religious history. He teaches courses on American and world religions, western mysticism, and religion and popular culture. He is the author of Frontier Religion: Mormons in America, 1857-1907 and co-editor of Reed Smoot: American Politics and American Religion.
