This New York semi-monthly periodical edited by Thomas Kirk appeared from July 1797 through May 1798 under a voluminous title that marks it as a hybrid serial-anthology/magazine: "The American Moral & Sentimental Magazine", consisting of a collection of select pieces, in prose and verse, from the best authors, on religion, moral and sentimental subjects, calculated to form the understanding and improve the heart...Kirk is especially zealous to defend "the sacred and eternal obligations of Virtue and Religion" as that "affords a pleasure truly rational and refined." Yet the magazine "is established on principles of unlimited liberality" and will be open to "the insertion of all such pieces as may be thought likely to advance the objects proposed."..."The American Moral and Sentimental Magazine" contained a great deal of the "moral" and only a modest number of "sentimental" articles. The subject index locates twenty-three articles given specifically to religious matters, but there are also a half dozen articles on providential escapes and conversions, and many moral essays with religious implications (on charity, the shortness of life, etc.). In addition the longest articles, including major serializations, treat religious subjects such as are addressed in Elizabeth Carter's "Superstition and Religion" (reprinted from Johnson's "The Rambler", 1750) or John Wesley's abridgement of John Reynold's "The Triumph of God's Revenge against Murder and Adultery" (1621).
