Summary

Few New York theatergoers who pass Father Francis Duffy’s statue in Times Square know that the beloved chaplain to New York’s “Fighting 69th” regiment was also a leading turn of the century Catholic intellectual. In 1905, Duffy (1871–1932) and colleagues sought to join “the ancient faith and modern thought” in their new journal, The New York Review, arguably the boldest American expression of Catholic intellectual life of its own or any time.1 He and The Review’s other founders hoped to encourage a homegrown Catholic intellectual culture among the nation’s growing body of upwardly mobile Catholics.
