The Democracy Of God: An American Catholicism by Robert Willis
English | Jan. 26, 2006 | ISBN: 0595379222 | 253 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Crisis grips the American Catholic community. Church professionals abandon it in record numbers while many who remain grapple with low morale, overwork, and compensatory addictions. Schools either close or laypeople staff them. Parishes consolidate, bereft of pastors and communicants. The people itself lies fragmented, a landscape of polarized groups, a kaleidoscope of political partisans more than gatherings of the faithful.Its future hangs in the balance.

Anti-Catholicism in Northern Ireland, 1600-1998 The Mote and the Beam


Anti-Catholicism in Northern Ireland, 1600-1998: The Mote and the Beam by John D. Brewer
English | Sep. 4, 1999 | ISBN: 0312217382 | 258 Pages | PDF | 30 MB
Anti-Catholicism forms part of the dynamics to Northern Ireland's conflict and is critical to the self-defining identity of certain Protestants. However, anti-Catholicism is as much a sociological process as a theological dispute. It was given a Scriptural underpinning in the history of Protestant-Catholic relations in Ireland, and wider British-Irish relations, in order to reinforce social divisions between the religious communities and to offer a deterministic belief system to justify them.

Catholicism, Sexual Deviance, and Victorian Gothic Culture (Cambridge Studies in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture)

Catholicism, Sexual Deviance, and Victorian Gothic Culture (Cambridge Studies in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture) by Patrick R. O'Malley
English | Oct. 23, 2006 | ISBN: 0521863988 | 294 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

It has long been recognised that the Gothic genre sensationalised beliefs and practices associated with Catholicism. Often, the rhetorical tropes and narrative structures of the Gothic, with its lurid and supernatural Descriptions, were used to argue that both Catholicism and sexual difference were fundamentally alien and threatening to British Protestant culture. Ultimately, however, the Gothic also provided an imaginative space in which unconventional writers from John Henry Newman to Oscar Wilde could articulate an alternative vision of British culture.

English | May 1, 2012 | ISBN: 144383761X | 284 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

In the midst of a multi-national comparative study of modern Catholic poets, Charles S. Kraszewski was more than a little surprised at the difficulty he encountered in finding a representative poet from that ostensibly most Catholic of European nations, Poland. With but two guiding criteria in mind the poet had to be possessed of a Catholic world view and have a significant impact on the development of modern poetry it seemed that Polish poets were either very good . . . or Catholic. Then, in 2004, during the funeral of the Nobel Prize winning poet Czes aw Mi osz, it was revealed that the poet had written a recent letter to the Pope, declaring his intent, in his later writings, to express a Catholic viewpoint.
