Catholic Revivalism

Catholic Revivalism

The American Experience, 1830–1900

Jay P. Dolan

Dolan has succeeded in showing that revivalism, traditionally viewed as a Protestant phenomenon, was also a central feature of Catholic life and activity in the nineteenth century. Dolan suggests that the religion of revivalism not only found a home among Catholics, but indeed was a major force in forming their piety and building up their church.

Jay P. Dolan is professor emeritus of history at the University of Notre Dame, where he founded the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism in 1975 and was the director of the Center until 1993.

“… this is a remarkable study, casting new light on the shape of Catholicism in 19th century America, illuminating from an unexpected angle discussions of the ‘Americanization’ of Catholicism, and filling in the story of revivalism.” — Christian Century

“This is a groundbreaking book that throws new light on the history of the Catholic Church. Drawing on a wide variety of published and unpublished sources, Dolan has succeeded in showing that revivalism, traditionally viewed as a Protestant phenomenon, was also a central feature of Catholic life and activity in the nineteenth century.” — Heythrop Journal
