I voted subset as well. Fundamentalists are evangelicals.

I think maybe at present, Fundamentalism appears to fits within a larger Evangelicalism. 

BUT, historically it didn't.

Historically it was in competition with what we now call Evangelicalism (i.e. New Evangelism.) Not a subset.

Or... maybe I just want to see more visual separation in the diagram Smile

Wouldn't this be a better description, both currently and historically?

your "eyeball" looks to be more accurate.

In what circle do you put a "Philip Nolan?" Where does he go if he renounced fundamentalism, and still can not cozy up with conservative evangelicals? Smile

Since these are general categories, and not generally anything people sign up for, M Leslie, i would say probably still Fundamentalist... after all, they are still for some kind of separation--they have just applied it to both sub-categories... Smile
