1st Annual Carroll Lecture: Republicanism and Orthodoxy: The Contribution of John Carroll
James R. Stoner, Professor of Political Science, Louisiana State University
In the Tocqueville Forum’s inaugural Carroll Lecture, Professor Stoner developed an argument not only about the importance of the Carroll family to the American Founding, but one that illustrated the vital compromises over the relationship between church and state that the Founders effected. The lecture was followed with a discussion of the political legacy that the Carroll family has left us, and the ways in which they influenced the Jesuit educational mission in America.
