Adapting in Eden: Oregon's Catholic Minority, 1838-1986 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the mid-nineteenth century, Catholic priests played key roles in Indian affairs, colonization, and regional development in the Oregon Country. During and since that time, Catholics in Oregon have faced sometimes unique opportunities, pressures, and challenges in their expression of faith. Adapting in Eden extensively chronicles the progress, changes, and adaptations made by Oregon's Catholic population up through the late 20th century.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on oral interviews, two Oregon academicians trace the sometimes less than idyllic history of the Catholic archdiocese in the Oregon territory/state, from the early 19th century arrival of its first community through the tenure of Portland Archbishop Michael Power (1974-86). Church leaders and buildings are shown. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Adapting in Eden presents the history of the first 150 years of the Oregon archdiocese. Begun in 1838 by European and North American missionaries, the archdiocese once included the entire Northwest from the Rockies to Alaska. The authors tell the story of how that vast and improbable archdiocese came to be, then gradually shrank in geographic size and increased in membership and complexity. By focusing on the personalities and administrative styles of Oregon's archbishops over time, the authors have delineated this important part of the Northwest tapestry.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [201]-209) and index.
