Catholics in Protestant America, 1605-1791: A Documentary History
The volume organizes representative documents from a wide array of public and private records—broadsides, newspapers, and legislative acts to correspondence, diaries, and reports—into topical chapters bridged by contextualized introductions. It affords students and readers in general the opportunity to have first-hand access to history. It serves also as a complement to Papist Devils: Catholics in British America, 1574-1783 (The Catholic University of America Press, 2014), a narrative history of the same topic.
About the Author
""Robert Emmett Curran has once again done valuable work for the field of American Catholic Studies. Not content to offer us merely a useful narrative on the colonial Catholic experience, as he did in Papist Devils, Curran has painstakingly assembled the primary source documents used to construct that narrative. He has annotated these documents and given readers a context for each of them. He has also explained how the documents relate to one another and to the overall narrative on British colonial Catholicism. The resulting volume is an effective classroom tool and an important resource for researchers." - Maura Jane Farrelly, author of Papist Patriots: The Making of an American Catholic Identity"—
