Abstract

Between 1958 and 1971 there was a pronounced increase in belief in the right to question church teachings among Detroit Catholics, but there was no significant change among Protestants in general. Certain events calling into question the infallibility of papal pronouncements in the 1960s are suggested as possible forces behind the increase among Catholics. The magnitude of the change is inversely related to age and directly related to education and church attendance.
