The American Catholic Sermon collection was formed from manuscript sermons from 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. The sermons are arranged alphabetically by preacher's last name.
Most manuscripts collections at the Georgetown University Booth Family Center for Special Collections are open to researchers; however, restrictions may apply to some collections. Collections stored off site require a minimum of three days for retrieval. For use of all manuscripts collections, researchers are advised to contact the Booth Family Center for Special Collections in advance of any visit.
Researchers are solely responsible for determining the copyright status of the materials being used, establishing who the copyright owner is, locating the copyright owner, and obtaining permission for intended use.
