Moby dick calvinism
Herman Melville, born on August 1, in New York City to Allan and Maria Gansevoort Melville - both came from distinguished and well-to-do American families  - had to face from his earliest days on and throughout his lifetime an America that was in a continuous state of religious upheaval and transition. During the early 19th century, two major religious forces caused the Christian community based on Jesus and his teachings to be the scene of constant debates. On the one extreme, there were the Unitarians who belonged to a Christian Church which rejected the doctrine of the Trinity — the Union of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit in one God — but instead believed that God is only one person. On the other extreme, the Unitarians were opposed by conservative Calvinists who held a different interpretation of the moral relation between God and man.

God did. As he anoints the barb with the blood of his pagan harpooners, he mocks the Christian baptismal formula. In his twenties, wakened by voyages on merchant, naval, and whaling ships, he began to reassess the Christian theodicy inculcated by his parents and the Dutch Reformed Church, an offshoot of Calvinism, in which he had been baptized, catechized, and reared. The Lord, she reminded, moves in mysterious ways.
Abstract: Both physically and narratively, Moby Dick's body dwarfs all others in the eponymous novel by Melville, as the author devotes inordinate space to dissecting and explicating a whale's physical presence. Yet he explores other bodies too. From Calvinism and Transcendentalism to phrenology and Abolitionism, Melville was surrounded by discourses that competed in asserting the body's relationship to the mind.
