Scope and Content

Papers relating to the Charismatic Renewal, collected by Louis Rogge, O.Carm.; consisting primarily of newsletters produced by prayer groups, communities, and other Renewal organizations; also literature on many of these groups and the conferences they organize; articles and other reference material on the Renewal, gathered by Rogge for his Ph.D. dissertation; with a small quantity of records of the national office of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal accumulated by William Truesdell, SJ, during his tenure on the national organization's advisory committee; and tape recordings of charismatics, 1970-1983.


The Charismatic Renewal is a loosely knit movement dedicated to the renewal of Christian life through the action of the Holy Spirit and characterized by charismatic phenomena such as prophecy, healing, and speaking in tongues. The Renewal is predominately Catholic, although it stresses ecumenism. The Catholic Charismatic Renewal was established in 1970 to serve as a national organization for the movement.
