The Diocese of Charleston was canonically established 200 years ago by Pope Pius VII on July 11, 1820.

As part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary, Dr. Patrick Cary, professor emeritus of theology at Marquette University, and Dr. Alison McLetchie, assistant professor of social sciences at S.C. State University, joined Walter Edgar to talk about the history of Catholicism in South Carolina, and its journey from prohibition to a thriving Christian tradition.
