Abstract: 

This work discusses the "incorporation" of denominational life as churches took on the organizational characteristics of the newly emerging modern corporation in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It provides extensive treatments of the financial history of the Presbyterian church as well as the emergence of special interest groups and church polity as the determinant of denominational decision-making.
