Antipathy toward Catholics in the United States in the nineteenth century was manifested in the Nativist movement of the 1830's and 1840's and the Know Nothing Party of the 1850's. The lecture will examine the origin of Nativism. It will also focus on the violent attacks against the Ursuline convent in Charleston, Massachusetts in 1834 and the Bible Riots in Philadelphia in 1844. Where? Central New York Marian Center When?
