This second edition, published in the same year as the first, was the latest in Carey's crusade against "the anti-Catholicism that Carey spent much time, energy, and printer's ink combating . . . Drawing on a legacy of Enlightenment and revolutionary thinking, Mathew Carey called for a culture of religious harmony and respect. He prided himself on religious cooperation: he published Catholic and Protestant books, he joined with Protestants to form a Sunday school, and a few of his children even married Protestants. Yet Carey also wore his Catholicism on his sleeve and defended Catholics from attacks. But even
while engaging in apologetics, Carey showed deep concern for religious harmony" [Apologetics of Harmony: Mathew Carey and the Rhetoric of Religious Liberty. 134 Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography 5. January 2010].
