Households of Faith has a broad scope, extending from a consideration of church ritual in New France, to demographic analyses of New Brunswick and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, to the intersection of gender and ethnicity, the construction of family in Aboriginal communities, and the changing definitions of sex roles and the family itself among both clergy and laypeople.

Editorial Reviews

"It is time that histories of religion and of families come closer together in Canada. This book builds on the work of such scholars as Lynn Marks to present a series of articles that treat this question in diverse and sometimes highly original ways." Bettina Bradbury, Department of History, York University
