About this title


Time's Covenant offers a collection of the sermons and essays of William Clancy, one of the most vehement opponents of McCarthyism, who was also an ardent civil libertarian and literate commentator on the changing times of the 1950s and 1960s. The articles originally appeared in Commonweal, dubbed the journal of “liberal Catholics,” as well as the New York Times, Saturday Review and Worldview. Clancy reflects on authors Ignazio Silone, Arnold Toynbee, Walter Lippman, as well as American poets, the Dreyfus Affair, and liberal Catholicism.

About the Author:

William Clancy taught English at Notre Dame and served as editor of Commonweal during the 1950s. He was also priest-provost of the Pittsburgh Oratory, an academic community modeled on the principles of Cardinal Newman, which served the city's colleges and universities.
