The Romanization of Catholicism

The Romanization of Catholicism

(p.47) Chapter Two The Romanization of Catholicism
In Search of an American Catholicism

Jay P. Dolan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Focuses on the turning away from a Catholicism grounded in the American democratic tradition in the years 1820–1880. This was a key transition period in American Catholic history. What took place was a thorough Romanization of Catholicism in the middle decades of the nineteenth century. During these years, such aspects of American culture as the rise of the public school and anti‐Catholic nativism had an impact on Catholicism by reinforcing its sectarian quality.
