The Immaculate Conception Proclamation Semicentennial, 1904
The epilogue looks at the waning of non-devotional, cultural uses of Marian imagery in the early twentieth-century. It suggests that the causes of the declension of such uses included the growing size, influence, and success of the Catholic community, the increasing tendency of both Catholics and Protestants to use Mary as an identifier of American Catholicism, the success of early twentieth century feminism, and the development of Protestant fundamentalism.
