New Book on U.S. Catholic History Edited by Fr. Endres05.26.17
An edited volume, Remapping the History of Catholicism in the United States: Essays from the U.S. Catholic Historian, was recently published by Catholic University of America Press. The book consists of seven important essays previously published in the U.S. Catholic Historian, a scholarly quarterly publication.
The essays were selected by editor Father David Endres, academic dean and associate professor of Church history and historical theology. Father Endres has served as editor of the U.S. Catholic Historian since 2013.
This collection of essays tells the story of Catholics previously underappreciated by historians: women, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and those on the frontier and borderlands.
“The book is important,” according to Fr. Endres, “because it helps expand our understanding of Catholic history beyond the normal narrative of German and Irish Catholics in East Coast cities. It reminds us that U.S. Catholicism is a lot more interesting and diverse than what first meets the eye.”
