This work is the second volume in the Melville Studies in Church History. Kupke focuses on the piety of the Catholics in the Anglo-American colonies in the eighteenth century, specifically around the time of John Carroll, the founder of the American Catholic hierarchy. Through the exploration of sermons of eighteenth century Jesuit missionaries in Maryland, the author analyzes the spirituality of the Catholics in this time period. Kupke's work is a valuable and interesting contribution to the study of the roots of the Catholic church in America. A must read for all those interested in American preaching, spirituality, Jesuit history, and Maryland colonial history as well. Co-published with the Department of Church History at the Catholic University of America.
