Among the more unusual elements of Catholic mysticism is the tradition of stigmata, chosen persons who are marked supernaturally with the wounds of the crucified Christ. The lecture will address the case of an American stigmatic of the early twentieth century and the political uses made of such events for a Catholic population trying to adapt to American society.
