fundamentalism (OED 1923)

1912 _Fort Worth Star-Telegram_ 16 Feb. (America's Historical Newspapers)  It is evident to every thing [sic] individual that the need of the age is not sensationalism, but fundamentalism.  There never was a time when the fundamentals of God's eternal word were needed more to be heralded from every pulpit as at this very moment.
