Abstract:

This book represents the history of the Archdiocese of Chicago. History is the story of past people, places and events told from the vantage point of the present. Over time the present becomes past and history is rewritten from a new perspective with fresh insights gleaned from new documentary sources not available to previous scholars. The Archdiocese of Chicago, A Journey of Faith looks afresh at the illustrious and sometimes tumultuous history of the Roman Catholic Church from our present vantage point, the beginning of the third millennium after the death of our Lord, Jesus Christ. This illustrated book contains photographs, images and stories never before assembled in one volume. It chronicles the rich historical legacy of our Archdioces's missionary roots, its growth as a fledgling Diocese that encompassed the whole State of Ilinois, to its present boundaries of Lake and Cook Countires. The esteemed Chicago Historian, Edward R. Kantowicz, weaves a fascinating portrait of the local parishes, lay persons, priests, bishops, events and faith that have conspired to make our history unique.
