    Lifelong Learning Lecture: Before JFK: Anti-Catholicism and American Politics

    Guest Speaker: Dr. Sarah Mulhall Adelman, PhD, Associate Professor, Framingham State University

    This talk explores the historical roots of American fears that Catholicism and Catholic officeholders were a threat to American democracy, and why John F. Kennedy famously reassured the American public that he would not be beholden to priests or the Pope if elected President.
