For Australian Readers

In diebus illis

An additional blog has now been created which deals specifically with Australian Catholic history in the 19th century.  The blog is named In diebus illis.

The internet address :

It is intended to make available on this new blog, articles on the history of the Church in Australia during the 19th century, together with extracts from primary sources, photographs etc., particularly focussing on the life and ministry of Australia's first Catholic bishop, John Bede Polding OSB and his contemporaries.

This Blog has been established in conjunction with the Facebook page

We wish to help a new generation of Australian Catholics to learn about the beginnings of the Church on this continent.
