The Catholic Church and (Il)Literacy

My latest post is up on Young Adult Catholics, examining the somewhat complicated relationship between Catholicism and literacy. I largely owe the fact that I can read to the work of Catholics and feminists from days past (Catholics for setting up the first universities in Europe, where my ancestors came from, and feminists for fighting for women to have access to education.) Now that Catholics can read, it’s time for the hierarchy to stop treating us as it did in the days that we were illiterate.
