Series V. The Splintered Cross, 1854-2010

Scope and Content Notes:

Dr. Faires final project, The Splintered Cross, was to become a book on the religious diversity of German immigrant communities in Pittsburgh and the relationship of those communities within the development of 19th century American society. Faires worked on this project off and on for nearly the entire breadth of her academic career and remains unfinished. This series represents this work and contains a berth of primary sources on churches in Pittsburgh, as well as information on their relationship with the broader American society. Present are a wide variety of church documents such as pamphlets and brochures as well as marriage records and copied pages of ledgers. Also included are sample drafts of chapters from her book, as well as annotated outlines, research plans, bibliographies and many other guides which show how she planned to construct the book.
