Catholics & Cultures

Have you visited Catholics & Cultures?  The website showcases a project from the Rev. Michael C. McFarland, SJ Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture at the College of the Holy Cross, which features videos, research articles, interviews, graphics and more explaining the different ways that Catholics around the world practice their faith in their daily lives.  The website also features demographic data for various countries to help explain the social and economic context in these areas.

A special page on the website highlights resources for educators.  The authors of the website plan to showcase examples of how the website can be used in the classroom.  An additional aspect of the initiative of particular interest to faculty includes the launch of an academic journal, the Journal of Global Catholicism, in fall 2015.

The website continues to be updated with new research.  Visit the Catholics & Cultures website to learn more about how Catholicism is practiced in Brazil, India, Ethiopia, Germany, and other countries.
