Lecture by author Professor Charles R. Gallagher, S.J.

On January 13, 1940, FBI agents burst into the homes and offices of 17 members of the Christian Front, seizing guns, ammunition, and homemade bombs. J. Edgar Hoover’s charges were that the group planned to incite a revolution and install a “temporary dictatorship” in order to stamp out Jewish and Communist influence in the United States. This intriguing book chronicles the evolution of the front, the transatlantic cloak-and-dagger intelligence operations that subverted it, and the mainstream political and religious leaders who shielded the front’s activities from scrutiny.

Charles R. Gallagher, S.J. is an Associate Professor in the Department of History at Boston College. In 2017, he held the William J. Lowenberg Memorial Fellow on America, the Holocaust, & the Jews, at the Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington, D.C. In 2009, his book, “Vatican Secret Diplomacy: Joseph P. Hurley and Pope Pius XII” (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2008), won the John Gilmary Shea Prize of the American Catholic Historical Association. He writes on Vatican diplomacy, the Holocaust, and the intersections of religion and espionage.
