Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This is a collection of manuscripts and an illustration regarding "The Catholic Ladder." Materials are from circa 1932 to circa 1952.
'Catholic ladder' is a general term given to pictorial catechisms that featured vertical sequences of pictures as pathways to Heaven. They transcended barriers of language and culture and closely followed the teaching styles of Saints Peter, Paul and Augustine by presenting Christian beliefs as concise and tangible glimpses of God in world history.
