RELG - 315. American Catholicism


3 credit(s)
Catholicism and American cultures encountered one another through misunderstanding and fear moving towards a period of intolerance and persecution. The course will examine how American Catholicism developed through justice issues such as religious freedom, social justice, racism, and gender equality. Using a thematic approach to studying the history of Catholicism in America, the course will also employ social science, psychological, and political texts to paint the broadest picture of the development of American Catholicism. A major focus will be on the development of the Franciscan missions along the west coast as well as the southern border of the United States. These missions contributed further to the American Catholic experience.
