Synopsis

The Roman Catholics have a long and storied history in the United States. From colonial times to the present, this group has seen its share of ups and downs, and has recently come under heated and extensive scrutiny. There is, however, a richer and more interesting history to this important denomination, and Carey details it here. Beginning with an overview of the transplanting of this faith into the New World, the author then details the extensive involvement this community has had in civil and political affairs, social and cultural milieus, and family and everyday life. Focusing on the people and events that have shaped Roman Catholicism in the United States, this broad history introduces readers to a vital American community. Beginning with a narrative history of Catholics and Catholicism in America, Carey brings the discussion through to current times, addressing the recent problems in the Church, women's roles, and responses to terrorism and war. He then goes on to include brief biographical sketches of important figures in the Church, and offers a chronology of key events. The result is one of the most comprehensive histories of Catholics in America available.

PATRICK W. CAREY is Professor of Theology at Marquette University. He is a former president of the American Catholic HIstorical Society, and the former chair of the Department of Theology at Marquette. His work has appeared in such publications as Church History, Catholic Historical Review, Journal of the Early American Public, and others. Among his published books are Theological Education in the Catholic Tradition: Contemporary Challenges (1996), The Roman Catholics (Greenwood, 1993), and People, Priests and Prelates: Ecclesiastical Democracy and the Tensions of Trusteeism (1987).
