This chapter provides a detailed analysis of James Joyce's Catholic nostalgia, particularly his returns to bittersweet memories of his Catholic mother as well as his repeated invocations of intellectually provocative Catholic doctrines. It discusses Joyce's abiding interest in the Catholic version of the soul's existence and immortality as evidenced by his study of Saint Thomas Aquinas and Reverend Michael Maher's Psychology. It also highlights Joyce's womb fixation and mother/Mary identification.

Keywords:   James Joyce, Catholic nostalgia, mother, Catholic doctrines, soul, immortality, Thomas Aquinas, Michael Maher, womb fixation
