About this product
- DescriptionUtah is t generally considered Catholic country. Yet with a diocesan history that predates statehood by five years and two hundred years of missionary activity dating to the period of the American Revolution, Catholicism is an essential part of Utah s spiritual landscape. Salt of the Earth chronicles the history of Catholicism in Utah from its introduction by Franciscan missionaries Dominguez and Escalante in 1776 to the arrival of Bishop John C. Wester in 2007. The authors take the reader through the events that led up to the formation of the Vicariate Apostolic of Utah in 1886, and the establishment of the Diocese of Salt Lake City less than five years later in 1891. In addition to the histories of the individual bishops and the growth of the diocese to the present, Salt of the Earth illuminates the lives of Catholic pioneers and leaders who helped forge a particular spiritual quality unique to Utah. It also reveals the associations in which lay people from all walks of life found daily expression for their faith and shaped a united community.
