Stamped with the Image of God
By: Cyprian Davis Jamie Phelps
Selected by two of America's leading Black Catholic scholars, documents included here demonstrate how African Americans have long been an integral part of Catholic History in America. From the Spanish and French periods of the pre-Revolutionary South, continuing through the Civil War and the 20th century struggles against racism, Stamped with the Image of God offers hope for all Catholics as they search to realize a communion that embraces members of all races and cultures as equals.
Cyprian Davis, OSB (1929-2015) was a Benedictine monk and professor of History at St. Meinrad's Abbey in Indiana whose many books include the award-winning Black Catholics in the United States.
