This essay is an examination of the concept of American civil religion nearly 50 years after Robert N. Bellah’s essay brought it to the attention of American social science, and a broad survey of the main trends of the scholarship on the subject. My aim is to find at least a tentative answer to the question whether any of the several interpretations has relevance for further research in the vastly different social and cultural milieu of the 2010s United States.
