SAIGON (1954-1960)/ The Virgin Heads South: Northern Catholic Refugees in South Vietnam, 1954-1964

The Virgin Heads South: Northern Catholic Refugees in South Vietnam, 1954-1964 (2009) is a thesis by Peter Hansen. It examines the flight of the Bac di Cu (Catholic Refugees) after 1954, and their evolution as a distinctive and isolated community within the Vietnamese Catholic Church. It examines why Northern Catholics fled south, the influences on their decision to do so, and their increasingly significant role within the southern Catholic Church.
