Households of Faith Family, Gender, and Community in Canada, 1760-1969 by Nancy Christie

Households of Faith has a broad scope, extending from a consideration of church ritual in New France, to demographic analyses of New Brunswick and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, to the intersection of gender and ethnicity, the construction of family in Aboriginal communities, and the changing definitions of sex roles and the family itself among both clergy and laypeople. Contributors include Nancy Christie, Enrico Cumbo (CBC), Patricia Dirks (Brock University), Ken Draper (Canadian Bible College), Michael Gauvreau (McMaster University), Ollivier Hubert (Universite de Montreal), Christine Hudon (Universite de Sherbrooke), Hannah Lane (University of New Brunswick), J.I. Little (Simon Fraser University),Susan Neylan (Wilfrid Laurier University), and Marguerite Van Die (Queen's University).


It is time that histories of religion and of families come closer together in Canada. This book builds on the work of such scholars as Lynn Marks to present a series of articles that treat this question in diverse and sometimes highly original ways. Bettina Bradbury, Department of History, York University
