A Christian movement characterized by strict adherence to certain Christian doctrines, in reaction to Modernist theology

Christian Fundamentalism is a movement stressing adherence to particular Christian doctrines that are typically rejected in Modernist theology. The movement occurred within United States Protestantism and can be traced to the early 20th century, particularly the publication of The Fundamentals (1910). The five subjects given that status were:

  • Biblical inspiration and inerrancy
  • Virgin birth of Jesus
  • Christ's atoning death
  • Bodily resurrection of Jesus
  • Historicity of the miracles of Jesus
