Jeffrey Brian Hanington (b. July 24, 1951 in Emsworth, Hampshire, England) a Canadian businessman, broadcaster, author.

"Since the first priest stepped ashore at Port Royal in 1605, the history of Nova Scotia has been profoundly shaped by the people, beliefs, and leadership of the Roman Catholic Church.

From the early days of lone missionaries living with the Micmac Indians, to the visit of Pope John Paul II to Halifax in 1984, the Catholic Church has risen to become one of the most deeply entrenched and powerful social institutions in the province.

Here for the first time is a volume of history which accurately and candidly assesses the role of the Church in the development of Nova Scotian society through the four centuries of its growth.

Every Popish Person, fully illustrated with original drawings and never-before published photographs from Church archives, recounts the stories of early missionaries, renegade priests, impoverished immigrants, soldiers, merchant adventurers, politicians, saints and scoundrels, and details how their beliefs and behaviour were influenced, and often dictated by the Roman Catholic community.

In each major historical event, from the expulsion of the Acadians and the prohibition of the 'papist' religion to Confederation and the two World Wars, the rise of Catholicism and its effect on the province come to life in this insightful and colourful social history. " from the dj.
