- The term 'manifest destiny' has traditionally been linked to U.S. westward expansion in the nineteenth century, the desire to spread republican government, and racialist theories like Anglo-Saxonism. Yet few people realise the degree to which manifest destiny and American republicanism relied on a deeply anti-Catholic civil-religious discourse.
