In this podcast, Art Remillard talks with Andrew Stern about his new book, Southern Crucifix, Southern Cross: Catholic-Protestant Relations in the Old South. Stern is an assistant professor of religion at North Carolina Wesleyan College. In this discussion, he explains how Catholics and Protestants in the Old South formed bonds that allowed them to heal, learn, worship, and rule together. Stern concludes by thinking about how his book contributes to both Catholic history and southern religious history.
