Summary or Abstract : My dissertation examines the English Catholic church's monumental efforts in the second half of the nineteenth century to expand their educational provision for the poor against the backdrop of increasing state intervention and secularism in the educational realm. The English Catholic church in nineteenth-century Great Britain was a minority religion in a country that had been Protestant and anti-Catholic since the sixteenth century. With the loss of religious hegemony by the Church of England in the nineteenth century, however, the religious atmosphere in the country became more tolerant and diversified, leading to a proliferation of other Protestant denominations. English Catholics would experience their own expansion, as well. Catholic Emancipation restored full civil liberties to Catholics in 1829, the Oxford Movement led to many converts from the Church of England in the 1840s, and the Irish famine unleashed a torrent of poor Irish Catholic refugees into England at mid-century. On the heels of these events, the English Catholic hierarchy struggled to meet the increasing needs of its flock, many of whom were crowded into filth-ridden slums of industrial boom towns like Manchester, Leeds, and Birmingham. The one issue that came to dominate the ameliorative social efforts of the church, both nationally and locally, was education.This work argues that the English Catholic educational effort helped to unify the Catholic community and alter its identity by imbuing it with such characteristics as aggressiveness, tenacity, and confidence. Education also helped the Catholic community to become more politically active and astute. The historical importance of this work is that it provides a glimpse of a minority community, existing within a hostile society, struggling to ensure its survival through control over the education of its children. Since many of the arguments put forth by Catholics, Protestants, and the state during this education battle resonate with analogous arguments made by similar groups today, my ultimate goal is that a better understanding of the education question of the past can possibly shed some light on the dilemmas facing educators and parents alike in the twenty-first century..
