The American Catholic Historical Association features Hidden Catholic Collections on its website at https://achahistory.org/category/hidden-catholic-collections/. This is a wonderful way to become familiar with Catholic religious archives.
The ACHA, in its own words, is “a conference of scholars, archivists, and teachers of Catholic studies. It is the place where the field of Catholic studies begins.” Its goals are to promote the history of the Catholic Church and advance historical scholarship.It’s interests lie in the history of the Church, including doctrine, spirituality, and missionary activity, and the history of its relations with civil society and interaction with the intellectual, cultural, social, and political life of the wider society.
The Hidden Catholic Collections series highlights many different religious archives, including the Selma, Alabama Collection in the Sisters of St. Joseph Archive in Rochester, NY, the Archives of the Society of the Sacred Heart, United States-Canada Province in St. Louis, MO, and the Sisters of the Precious Blood Archives in Dayton, OH.
We are thrilled that our archives has been selected for inclusion in the Hidden Catholic Collections series. Please visit: https://achahistory.org/hidden-catholic-collections/
