U.S. Catholic History: Online Resources

Papist Patriots

Papist Patriots - Oxford Univeristy



This volume considers how and why colonial Catholics embraced the individualistic, rights-oriented ideology of the American Revolution, in spite of the fact that the Revolution's rhetoric was riddled with anti-Catholicism, and even though Catholicism has had an uneasy relationship with Enlightenment liberalism until very recently.  Available electronically, five users at a time. Available from Oxford Scholarship Online.
