How did what started as a temperance movement become a campaign for total abstinence? Who were the real originators of temperance societies and what were the factors making for their growth? What led to the demonisation of drink? To modern eyes, the temperance movement seems old-fashioned, but its original promoters were among the most progressive minds of their day. It became associated with the churches but was resisted by them in the beginning. Why did the temperance movement fade away in the twentieth century? This lecture aims to raise important questions about the rise and fall of the movement and suggest some of the answers.
