8vo - 20 x 13.5 cm.; 224 pp. First printing. Getlein, a noted art critic for the Washington Evening Star, "wittily re-views the history of the laity in the Church . . . sketches the struggle between the 'bandits and bishops', the effects of Counter-Reformation devotionalism, the place of the Middle Ages in America, the Catholic treatment of Jews, and Catholic intellectual life in the United States . . . the plan is to move from the sometimes ridiculous, sometimes annoying, inadequacies of the Catholic scene . . . to the genuine excellencies of the past, the present, and the future."
