The Solitary Christians: Italian Americans and Their Church.
McBride, Paul W.
Ethnic Groups, v3 n4 p333-54 Dec 1981
The insularity of Italian Americans is evident in their relationship with the Catholic church in America. By insisting on remaining Catholic, but only on their own terms, the Italians have won no support either from other Catholics, the church hierarchy, or the Protestants who hoped to convert them to Protestantism.
