Part of the Palgrave Studies in Religion, Politics, and Policy book series (PSRPP)


Gerald P. Fogarty provides a broad history of the role of the Holy See in the US, from the period of independence through the 2016 presidential election, as well as the changing status of US Catholics over time. His analysis addresses, in particular, the changing attitudes over time of Catholics toward Church authority. Fogarty concludes his analysis with how the Catholic community engaged in the 2016 election and the issues of concern to Catholics being addressed in the early days of the Trump Administration.
