Catholic historian to visit Boisi Center

University of Notre Dame Professor Jay M. Dolan will discuss his book, In Search of an American Catholicism, on Tuesday, Oct. 22, from noon-1:15 p.m. at the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life, 24 Quincy Road.
In his book, Dolan, a leading Catholic historian and former president of the American Catholic Historical Association and the American Society of Church History, explores the tension that has always existed between ideals of American democracy and Catholic doctrine. His narrative recounts changes in the Catholic Church in America over time and the shifts of power between the laity, the American clergy, and the Pope in response to historical events.
