University Press of Florida

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the influence of Catholic nostalgia on the works of James Joyce. It highlights the differences between Joyce's depiction of Catholic rituals and iconography in his works and those of several other writers including Thomas Merton, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Flannery O'Connor. It also describes the influence of Marian devotion on these writers, all having experienced a so-called Marian era which lasted from the 1850s to the 1960s.

Keywords:   James Joyce, Catholic nostalgia, Catholic rituals, Catholic iconography, Thomas Merton, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Flannery O'Connor, Marian devotion
