A Visionary People: Religion And The Visual Arts, Kelly Baker

Kelly J. Baker

Faith in America, Publisher's Description: With an influx of immigrants from Asia, Latin America, and other regions, the diversity of religion has grown to include Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and other faiths. Latin American and African American communities have experienced changes in the ways they practice their faith and in turn influence American culture in general.

Continuing The Mission Of St. Vincent De Paul: Insights On Vincentian Leadership Practices At Depaul University, Marco Tavanti Dec 2005

Continuing The Mission Of St. Vincent De Paul: Insights On Vincentian Leadership Practices At Depaul University, Marco Tavanti

And so DePaul University continues that mission of ...


Jews And Catholics In Catholic Poland: A Beleaguered Church In The Post Reformation Era, Magda Teter Dec 2005

Jews And Catholics In Catholic Poland: A Beleaguered Church In The Post Reformation Era, Magda Teter

Magda Teter

My first book, Jews and Heretics in Catholic Poland: A Beleaguered Church in the Post Reformation Era (Cambridge University Press, 2006, pbk 2009), introduced Jews into a traditional Polish narrative of post-Reformation Poland that had been grounded in a Catholic-Protestant dichotomy, allowing me to reposition the role of Jews and other non-Catholics in multicultural Poland in a completely new way.
