 John Hughes and Kirwan in New York

Show Summary Details


Bishop John Hughes (1797-1864) was one of the staunchest defenders of the Catholicism since the beginning of his clerical career. In 1850, Presbyterian pastor Nicholas Murray (1802-61) exposed popery in a series of essays addressed as letters to the bishop. Hughes had ignored the pseudonymous author of these letters. However, when Murray was revealed as the author of the Kirwan letters, Hughes felt the need to respond and did so in Kirwan Unmasked.
