Rate this:
At The Crossroads reveals the role that Old Saint Patrick's Church has played -- and continues to play -- in the history of Chicago and the Irish American experience. As the mother parish of the Chicago Irish and the oldest public building in the city, not only does Saint Patrick's provide a lens through which to examine the Irish experience, but the parish's urban landscape tells the story of the city's growth and development. Topics range from the parish's influence on city art and architecture arid the Celtic revival to current St. Patrick's Day celebrations, including hosting the World's Largest Block Party. To be released during the parish's sesquicentennial year celebration, the work is a lasting contribution to the history of Catholicism and Irish studies. 50 archival photographs.
