NEW BOOK> Power Objects in Tibetan Buddhism: The Life, Writings, and Legacy of Sokdokpa Lodrö Gyeltsen

Dear friends and colleagues,

New Publication: The Civil War Diary of Rev. James Sheeran, CSSR: Chaplain, Confederate, Redemptorist

Though frequently cited, scholars to this point have had to content themselves with the publication of extracts to the Civil War journal of Father James Sheeran, CSSR, a Redemptorist who saw considerible action as chaplain to the 14th Louisiana Regiment.  Important for Civil War history. Important for Irish-American history. Important for American church history. This Civil War journal was zealously maintained by one of the war's most intriguing personalities.  He ministered to both sides in the conflict, though his loyalties were decidedly in favor of the Confederacy.
