In George Washington's Religion, Professor Stephen Vicchio gives a comprehensive analysis of the religious beliefs of the first president of the United States, George Washington. After discussing Washington’s early religious life in the Anglican and Episcopal churches, Professor Vicchio goes on to analyze Washington’s views on God, the Bible, religious toleration, ethics and virtue, prayer, and whether or not America was established as a Christian nation, as well as his understanding of the problem of evil and the afterlife.

Muslim Slaves in the Chesapeake: 1634-1865 is the product of ten years of study. It is about the phenomenon of Muslim Slaves in the Chesapeake Bay Region from 1634 until 1865. The book examines fifty-five Muslim slaves in Maryland and another fifty-one in Virginia. It also looks at slave forts and prisons in Africa, the Middle Passage-the route by which West African slaves came to America-slave auction and slave dealers in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia and many other issues related to American slavery in the seventeenth to nineteenth century.
