An Immigrant Bishop: John England’s Adaptation of Irish Catholicism to American Republicanism, Second Edition

Offers a revised examination of the Irish intellectual roots of Bishop John England's American pastoral works in the diocese of Charleston, South Carolina (1820-1842). The text focuses on his political philosophy and his theology of the Church, both of which were influenced by the Enlightenment and a theological, not a political, Gallicanism.
