Creed and Culture: The Place of English-speaking Catholics in Canadian Society, 1750-1930
Terrence Murphy, Gerald John Stortz
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 1993 - Religion - 253 pages
The essays in Creed and Culture combine narrative elements with historical analysis to examine the experience of English-speaking Catholics in the light of social categories such as ethnicity, gender, and class. The Catholicism of English Canada is set in context by comparisons with broader Canadian developments and with the history of Catholicism in the English-speaking world. The authors discuss not only institutional history and church-state relations but also popular piety and lay involvement in religious affairs. The complexity and diversity of the experience of anglophone Catholics is highlighted through accounts of relations with their French-speaking counterparts and Protestant compatriots, European Catholic immigrants, and ecclesiastical authorities in Quebec, Ireland, Scotland, and Rome.
