Prilutskii Vitalii Viktorovich
Bryansk State University named after academician I. G. Petrovsky


Abstract. The article is devoted to the characteristic of the existing statistic data about immigration in the USA in the middle of the XIX century and the increase in number of Catholic people. In this historical period massive Catholic immigration became a real problem for the new state. In some cities and regions of the country from the third up to the half of the population were the Irish and Germans. The inflow of "gentiles" caused the antagonism of the American Protestants inasmuch as it changed the religious, ethnical and social image of the country. The anti-Irish and anti-Catholic rhetoric was becoming more and more popular in the USA during the 30-50s of the XIX century.
Key words and phrases: статистические данные об иммиграции в США в середине XIX в, американский католицизм, католические общины в США, антикатолические настроения, нативизм, ксенофобия, statistic data on immigration in the USA in the middle of the XIX century, American Catholic.
