WASPS, Tykes and Ecumaniacs["Aspects of Australian Sectarianism 1945-1981"]

Author(s): Benjamin Edwards

Christian | Politics

Protestant-Roman Catholic rivalry has long been an undercurrent in Australian socio-cultural life. Despite increasing secularism, the effects of sectarianism still linger in twenty-first century Australia. Benjamin Edwards¿ study from post World War II to the 1980s covers the religious revival of the 1950s and the waning of sectarian bitterness brought about by the rise of ecumenism, the Second Vatican Council, large-scale immigration and state aid to education.
