The American Catholic Sermon collection has been formed from the manuscript sermons previously unidentified and virtually uncataloged in the Woodstock College Archives, the Maryland Province Archives, and the Georgetown University Archives. It consists of some 456 autograph manuscript sermons, two contemporary written transcriptions, and four printed items (some only fragments) by 44 different preachers, including 55 texts by Archbishop John Carroll and seven by Georgetown's first president, Rev. Robert Plunkett. These manuscripts allow significant research in the field of literary, as well as historical and theological, interest -- especially since only a handful of American Catholic sermons were published during the eighteenth century, and none at all before 1786. The sermons are arranged alphabetically by preacher's last name.
