Presenting the work of some of the finest scholars of U.S. Catholic history, the essays offer intriguing insights into topics ranging from spirituality and the intellectual life to the Church's relationship with the U.S. government and the Church's own internal organizational development. Many of the contributors address topical issues in the history of the American Church, such as preaching in the early days, slavery and the Catholic Church, disciplinary issues, and higher education.
