Religion and the public schools in 19th century America : the contribution of Orestes A. Brownson by Edward J Power( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From humble and obscure beginnings, mainly self-educated, and following a religious path often mired in uncertainty, Orestes Brownson (1803-1876), preacher, journalist, editor, and philosopher, rose to become an important and often controversial figure in nineteenth century America. Author Edward Power focuses on Brownson's ideas and their influence on nineteenth century public and Catholic education in the United States. He introduces Brownson's theory of educational authority and responsibility, and then explores his opinions on the character of Catholic and public schools. He highlights the significance of family and other social institutions in the educational process and the importance of Catholic education, in particular. Brownson made important contributions by clarifying the often troublesome religious issues that cropped up in nineteenth century America. He wanted to demonstrate to America that the Catholic Church is an institution whose doctrines and practices are entirely compatible with American democracy
