Author Talk, Public Program The Nazis of Copley Square: The Forgotten Story of the Christian Front 30 September 2021.Thursday, 5:30PM - 6:30PM Virtual Event Charles R. Gallagher, S.J., Boston College Image entitled /2012/juniper/assets/section37/lf.jpg

The Nazis of Copley Square provides a crucial missing chapter in the history of the American far right. The men of the Christian Front imagined themselves as crusaders fighting for the spiritual purification of the nation, under assault from godless Communism, and they were hardly alone in their beliefs. Gallagher 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. This grim tale of faith perverted to violent ends serves as a warning for those who hope to curb the spread of far-right ideologies today.
