The Panoplist covered a wide range of religious topics, including theology, biblical interpretation, and social issues. It was known for its strong stance on social reform, particularly in the areas of abolitionism and temperance.

Contributors to The Panoplist included some of the most prominent religious figures of the time, including William Ellery Channing, Lyman Beecher, and Leonard Woods. The magazine also published reviews of religious books and articles, as well as letters from readers.

In addition to its religious content, The Panoplist also covered current events and cultural topics of the day, such as literature, science, and education.

The Panoplist played an important role in the religious and social life of early 19th-century New England, and was widely read and respected by both religious and secular audiences. The magazine was published for over 30 years, with the final issue printed in 1838.

Despite its closure, The Panoplist remains an important part of the history of American religious print media, and its influence is still felt in contemporary religious discourse. Many of its articles and editorials are still studied and cited by scholars and religious leaders alike.{{Categories}}
