Common Threads: A Cultural History of Clothing in American Catholicism (Hardback)Sally Dwyer-McNulty (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Drawing on insights from the study of material culture and of lived religion, Dwyer-McNulty demonstrates how the visual lexicon of clothing in Catholicism can indicate gender ideology, age, and class. Indeed, clothing itself has become a kind of Catholic language, whether expressing shared devotional experiences or entwined with debates about education, authority, and the place of religion in American society.
