Catholics in the Christ-Haunted South

  • West Feliciana Court House 4789 Prosperity St St Francisville, LA, 70775 United States

Roman Catholicism—historically an outsider form of Christianity in the heavily Protestant South—informed the moral vision of Percy and Flannery O’Connor, two of the modern South’s best writers and most observant social critics. What did their Catholicism reveal to them about Southern culture? What did their Southern roots and Christian faith reveal to them about the discontents of contemporary America in an increasingly secular age?
