The Founding of Two Deaf Churches: The Interplay of Deaf and Christian Identities.
Monaghan, Leila F.
Sign Language Studies, n73 p431-52 Win 1991
Examines the interplay between "Deaf" and "Christian" identities in a large complex society. A group of Christians who strongly identified themselves as "Deaf" formed a separate "Deaf" church. Differences in religious beliefs, however, led some parishioners of this new church to found a separate "Deaf" Christian church. (22 references) (JL)
