Applying Catholic Principles to Nationalistic Trends: Opportunity Offered to the Teacher of American History in the Catholic High School to Cooperate in the Mitigation of Nationalism by Inculcating the Catholic Spirit in Her Pupils

Mary Therese Anna O'Neill, Fordham University

Abstract

Our aim in the present thesis is to allow how the Catholic spirit, as an antidote for nationalistic tendencies, can be developed in the pupils in our Catholic High Schools through the teaching of American History, particularly American Church History. Before proceeding, however, to this exposition, we shall by way of introduction attempt to prove that nationalism exists in the United States, and to point out the necessity for the Catholic school to oppose this dangerous tendency.
