 The Nineteenth-Century Bishops and Anti-Catholicism

Show Summary Details


It is a common perception that Christendom thrives within the Catholic Church; that Catholics are not full participants in the democratic experiment nor are they free to do their own thinking. This chapter looks at some Catholic response to the more virulent forms of expression of this perception. Specifically, it reviews the responses of Bishop England, Archbishops Purcell and Hughes, and Cardinal Gibbons.
