Southern Crucifix, Southern Cross examines the complex and often overlooked relationships between Catholics and Protestants in the antebellum South.
Andrew H. M. Stern received his PhD in American religious history from Emory University and is an assistant professor of religion at North Carolina Wesleyan College.
“Southern Crucifix, Southern Cross is a valuable contribution to the field of southern religious history. No one has previously done a study, on any level, of Catholic-Protestant relations in the South. This book, based on impressive research, has an important story to tell, and Stern does so in an enviably graceful, economical style.”—Robert Emmett Curran, author of A History of Georgetown University and editor of American Jesuit Spirituality: The Maryland Tradition, 1634–1900
