Hitler's Priests: Roman Catholic Clergy in the Nazi Party

The project is a history of German Roman Catholic clergy who were members of the Nazi party. Utilizing information on fifty brown priests gathered from over twenty archives, this work will show how they worked both individually and together to promote and support the Nazi party and state. Motivated by a variety of factors: anti-Semitism, nationalism, opportunism, anti-Bolshevism, and anti-liberalism, these priests would even defy their bishops to support Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party.
