Hitler's Priests: Catholic Clergy and National Socialism (Book)
Title: Hitler's Priests: Catholic Clergy and National Socialism
Author: Kevin P. Spicer
Abstract: Shaken by military defeat and economic depression after War World I, Germans sought to restore their nation s dignity and power. In this context the National Socialist Party, with its promise of a revivified Germany, drew supporters. Among the most zealous were a number of Catholic clergymen known as brown priests who volunteered as Nazi propagandists. In Hitler's Priests, Kevin P. Spicer introduces the principal clergymen who participated in the Nazi movement, examines their motives, details their advocacy of National Socialism, and explores the consequences of their political activism.
