CFP: U.S. Catholic Historian: U.S. Catholics and Non-Christians

For more than thirty-five years the U.S. Catholic Historian has published theme-based issues relevant to the history of American Catholicism. An upcoming issue will address the theme of Catholics and non-Christians. Contributions could include, but are not limited to, historical studies of the following:

  • U.S. Catholics' engagement with religious traditions including Islam, Judaism, Atheism/Communism, Native American religions, etc.
  • Missionary efforts among non-Christians in the United States
  • U.S. Catholic theological engagement with non-Christian thinkers
  • Dialogues between Catholics and non-Christian groups
  • Catholic participation in the World's Parliament of Religions (1893) and similar meetings
  • Ethnic succession that has placed Catholics and non-Christians in geographic proximity to one another

Scholars considering a submission are asked to contact the editor, Fr. David Endres at DEandres@mtsm.org before preparing a contribution.

 

Approximate length is 7,000-10,000 words.

 

We ask for submissions by February 1, 2020 and look forward to hearing from potential contributors.
