Papist Devils

Catholics in British America, 1574-1783

Robert Emmett Curran
Narrated by James McSorley

The unprecedentedly broad scope of this study, which encompasses not only the thirteen colonies that took up arms against Britain in 1775, but also those in the maritime provinces of Canada as well as the ones in the West Indies, constitutes a unique coverage of the British Catholic colonial experience, as does the extension of the colonial period through the American Revolution, which was its logical dénouement.

The Personalism of John Henry Newman

John F. Crosby

Contemporary Views on Sacred Spaces

Edited by Julio Bermudez
