Education in Time of War: George Johnson and the Commission on American Citizenship of the Catholic University of America
Elias, John L.
Religious Education, v104 n2 p133-148 Mar-Apr 2009
Times of war are times of crisis for theologians and educators. This article examines how Msgr. George Johnson, the vice president of the Religious Education Association and the most prominent Catholic educator in the 1930s and 1940s, dealt with the ethical and educational issues surrounding U.S. involvement in the Second World War. It argues that Johnson skillfully balanced the demands of patriotism with that of critical citizenship and commitment to Catholic theological and educational principles. (Contains 1 footnote.)
