Summer Auditing Opportunity

Distinguished Associate Professor of History at Hillsdale College and visiting Professor of Church History at WSC, Dr. D. G. Hart, will be giving a course on Roman Catholics in American (CH555), August 2-5, 2022 | 1:00pm – 4:15pm (PST).

This course covers the transformation of Roman Catholics from cultural and religious outsiders (1800-1950) to leading figures in the conservative movement that launched Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and even Donald Trump. Students will examine the assumptions that Protestants made about America (that also marginalized Roman Catholics) and the ways post-World War II Roman Catholics Americanized. This transformation of Roman Catholicism is largely responsible for many Protestants converting to Rome. As such, the course has implications for Reformed ministry in contemporary American society.
