Faith and the Historian:

Catholic Perspectives

edited by Nick Salvatore (University of Illinois Press)


The series of eight essays describing the interaction between personal faith and professional history begins with “Becoming (and Being) a Catholic Historian,” emeritus Notre Dame professor Philip Gleason’s account of his graduate study and career.

Other authors reflect on the interplay between their personal lives and beliefs and the sources of their professional work as historians. The essayists also include Salvatore, Anne M. Butler, David Emmons, Mario T. Garcia, James R. Barrett, Maureen Fitzgerald and Joseph A. McCartin.
