In search of an American Catholicism : a history of religion and culture in tension by Jay P Dolan( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the earliest days of the Republic, American Catholics have experienced dual allegiances - to the Church and to a nation whose culture was sometimes shaped by religious values, but often at odds with them. In this history, the Catholic historian Jay Dolan follows the way American Catholicism has taken its distinctive shape and examines the complex identity of Catholics in the United States. The book focuses on American Catholics during three specific periods: the republican period (1780-1820), when the idea of democracy, based on the principles of the American Revolution, filtered into the Catholic community and changed the way that Catholics thought and acted; the beginnings of the modern industrial era (1880-1920), when Catholics began to leave the cultural and intellectual cocoon of the immigrant Church and to explore the intellectual frontiers of the new age; and finally, during the contemporary period (1960 and beyond), when the Catholic Church responded to the social, cultural, and intellectual forces of the period with the reforms of the Vatican II movement, while at the same time recognizing the strength and vitality gained from the cultural and ethnic diversity of its adherents

New dimensions in American religious history : essays in honor of Martin E. Marty( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays has been written in tribute to Martin E. Marty, a scholar who has certainly earned his reputation as the most influential living interpreter of religion in America." "During his distinguished career - which includes over forty books, countless articles, and a generation of students - Marty has disentangled the jumbled and competing directions of American religious history by focusing on a central theme that has run through it all - the distinctively American experiment with pluralism." "These essays take stock of the significance of Marty's teaching to date by showing how his former students are following his leads - or moving beyond them - in their struggles to comprehend the richness of North American religious history. Some of the essays, explain the volume's editors, "celebrate the American search for oneness in spite of the efflorescent manyness of this nation's pluralism." Other essays remind us "that being American is seldom merely settling for oneness" by exploring the distinctiveness, schism, and conflict in this country's religious history. A third group of essays launches into new directions of historical inquiry, exploring varieties of religious expression that have previously been ignored." "A fitting tribute to Marty's impact on the study of religion in the last century, this volume presents a new generation of seekers finding its way across the broad range of North American religious experience, keeping the pluralistic experiment alive."--Jacket
