  • Saint Geneviève and the Anointing of the Sick
    • Abstract: Christian ministry to the sick has a long history. Only gradually did it become the province of the ordained clergy. Reminders exist of an earier involvement in this ministry of lay persons and saints who were not ordained, who anointed the sick.1 When the Scholastics systematized the seven sacraments, they presented arguments for clerical ministry to those in danger of death, but they felt obliged to confront evidence of healing practiced by the saints by anointing, distinguishing it from sacramental ministry, although both types of healing involved divine action through the person anointing. Their arguments about healing by holy persons as possibly sacramental, advanced to be refuted, will be documented below. ... Read More

  • Lateran IV's Decree on Confession, Gratian's De Penitentia, Confession to
           One's Sacerdos Proprius: A Re-Evaluation of Omnis Utriusque in Its
           Canonistic Context
    • Abstract: The degree of the novelty of Omnis utriusque sexus, c.21 of the Fourth Lateran Council, has long been on scholars' minds. Certainly none of the major papal councils of the previous century had legislated anything quite like it. Scholars usually refer to the constitution in terms of its first requirement, that of once-yearly confession by all the faithful, of both sexes and of any age after the age of discretion. Martin Ohst demonstrated that perceived precedents for a requirement for annual confession in the ninth through twelfth centuries were hardly equivalent. They consisted of admonitions to confess when one felt burdened by sin and were usually directed at a specific audience, such as canons regular in a ... Read More

  • A Professionalizing Priesthood: The Cathedral Chapter of San Juan, Puerto
           Rico, 1650–1700
    • Abstract: In a letter dated July 6, 1659, Francisco Arnaldo de Isasi, the newly installed bishop of Puerto Rico, described a tense situation in San Juan's cabildo eclesiástico, or cathedral chapter, to Gregorio de Leguía, secretary of the Council of the Indies.1 The situation had begun in 1654 when Archdeacon Cristóbal Bautista López instructed his agent in Madrid to seek a position for him in a different cathedral chapter; he had specified Caracas, Mérida (Yucatán), Michoacán, Puebla, or Mexico City.2 Later that year, when the office of treasurer in the cathedral chapter of Caracas became available, Bautista López's agent accepted on his behalf. For reasons that aren't clear, the archdeacon changed his mind, and when the ... Read More

  • Education in the Name of the Lord: The Rise and Decline of the Catholic
           Labor Schools
    • Abstract: The priests of Hartford's Diocesan Labor Institute once had the misfortune of receiving an anonymous letter, written in bright red crayon, and addressed to "the Catholic yokels of the Hartford Diocesan Labor Institute: The labor crooks appreciate having the help of the Catholic phonies! Do you also fall on your knees and bob your heads at the mention of the ol' swindler and hypocrit [sic], Roosevelt'"1 In a quick, stinging rebuke, the priests were attacked as lying, slavish followers of an even worse "swindler and hypocrit" in President Franklin Roosevelt and as cronies of the racketeers who, in the anonymous writer's opinion, populated the American labor movement. This group of priests must have touched a ... Read More

  • The Holy See's Eastern Policy—The Yugoslav Example
    • Abstract: Diplomatic ties between the Holy See and Yugoslavia were severed on December 17, 1952, after a period of very strained diplomatic relations between the Catholic Church and the communist regime in Yugoslavia. Following the end of the Second World War, the Catholic Church in Yugoslavia could hardly be expected to accept the new communist government, whose program was among other things based on atheist ideology, which in its own right is unacceptable to the Church's teachings, but also because it was aware of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia's official position on the Church's standing in society. Moreover, the Church was aware that the Yugoslav government was under direct influence of the USSR's communist regime ... Read More

  • Epiphanius of Cyprus: A Cultural Biography of Late Antiquity by Andrew S.
           Jacobs, and: Epiphanius of Cyprus: Imagining an Orthodox World by Young
           Richard Kim (review)
    • Abstract: Blessed with a steely temperament and a remarkably long life for his own era, Epiphanius of Salamis (310/20-403), monk, bishop, author and controversialist, was a man whose vast ambition was disproportionate to his moderate learning. Epiphanius came from a wealthy family in Palestine and made the most of imperial toleration for Christianity, expanding his power and influence not only by cannily associating with ambitious Christian leaders, but also—and with great labor—by assembling a book (The Panarion) cataloging heresies for the increasingly prominent church.

  • The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise: Muslims, Christians, and Jews under
           Islamic Rule in Medieval Spain by Darío Fernández-Morera (review)
    • Abstract: In 1986, I published an article, "Islam and the Jews: Myth, Counter-Myth, History" (The Jerusalem Quarterly, no. 38). I explained then, and later on in the first chapter of my book, Under Crescent and Cross: The Jews in the Middle Ages (Princeton University Press, 1994; new edition, 2008) (a book that Darío Fernández-Morera admires—p. 243), that the old, originally nineteenth-century Central European Jewish "myth" of a harmonious, interfaith utopia of Jews and Muslims in Islamic Spain—which in the book under review is represented by the "convivencia" of Muslims, Christians, and Jews—had come under assault after the Six-Day War of June 1967 by a new, Jewish "countermyth" of Islamic persecution. The countermyth was ... Read More

  • The History of Courts and Procedure in Medieval Canon Law ed. by Wilfried
           Hartmann and Kenneth Pennington (review)
    • Abstract: This long-awaited volume addresses church courts in western and central Europe between about 1100 and 1500. Bringing together an international group of senior scholars, it contains fourteen essays divided into two parts.The basic story is familiar. In the first half of the twelfth century, academic jurists at the nascent universities developed a set of procedural rules derived from newly discovered texts of Roman law. These rules—known as the ordo iudiciorum—standardized the stages of litigation, modes of proof (namely, witness testimony), and rendering of judgments. The ordo was quickly adopted by the papacy and incorporated into the canon law of the Church, giving birth to a joint "Romano-canonical procedure" ... Read More

  • The Intellectual World of the Italian Renaissance: Language, Philosophy,
           and the Search for Meaning by Christopher S. Celenza (review)
    • Abstract: In The Intellectual World of the Italian Renaissance, Christopher Celenza provides a priceless vademecum for the study of Italian humanism. It rolls up in a delectable ball all that has come before: Garin and Kristeller; Burckhardt, Baron, and Martines; Fubini and Vasoli; Hankins, Allen, and the others. It presents in depth and with exquisite clarity the major works of nine leading humanists from Petrarch to Poliziano (plus many others introduced in discursive "parentheses"), culminating with the writer and critic Pietro Bembo, who translates the humanist heritage into a new language of art, a Latinized Tuscan. The lucidity of the explication de textes is matched by the precision with which Celenza profiles his ... Read More

  • Ruling the Spirit: Women, Liturgy, and Dominican Reform in Late Medieval
           Germany by Claire Taylor Jones (review)
    • Abstract: The religious orders of women in Germany associated with the mendicant friars are at times portrayed as experiencing rapid decline and decadence during the late Middle Ages, beginning soon after their foundation in the early thirteenth century and well before being swept away, mostly in the aftermath of the Reformation. Yet, this view has been increasingly discredited by recent scholarship that has highlighted the aspirations and vitality of the movements of reform of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, especially as manifested by the Observant branches of these orders. Claire Taylor Jones, who displays close acquaintance with this scholarship, focuses on some of the monasteries of the cloistered, women's ... Read More

  • Renaissance Woman: The Life of Vittoria Colonna by Ramie Targoff (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Ramie Targoff's biography of Vittoria Colonna, Renaissance Woman, alludes to Jacob Burckhardt's celebration of the Renaissance Man. And as Targoff reminds the reader, Burckhardt considered Colonna "the most famous woman of Italy" (p. 8). Vittoria Colonna's fame today rests, for the general audience of this biography, with her friendship with Michelangelo. Targoff goes beyond that expectation and places Colonna within a Renaissance society that identified greatness in family connections and personal accomplishments. Burckhardt would recognize the Vittoria Colonna we meet in these pages and delight in the details of her Renaissance life. But writing the life of an early modern woman is problematic. Like ...

  • A Magnificent Faith: Art and Identity in Lutheran Germany by Bridget Heal
           (review)
    • Abstract: Dealing with the relation between Lutheran visual culture and confessional identity in the Holy Roman Empire, this book aims to explain the significance of the image in Lutheran confessional culture and to incorporate visual evidence into the broader framework of Reformation history. Without attempting to be a history of Lutheran Art, the book seeks to analyze images—and textual accounts of their creation and use—to enrich current debates concerning confessional culture and identity, which were profoundly shaped by the Empire's fragmented political structures and remarkable regional diversity. Within a broad chronological span, ranging from the 1520s to the early eighteenth century, the book examines comparatively ... Read More

  • Pedro de Ribadeneyra's 'Ecclesiastical History of the Schism of the
           Kingdom of England': A Spanish Jesuit's History of the English Reformation
           ed. by Spencer J. Weinreich (review)
    • Abstract: Spencer J. Weinreich describes his translation of Ribadeneyra's Historia ecclesiastica as a "labor of love" (p. 103), springing from a desire to commend its merits and interest to scholars. Some have dismissed the Historia as a rhetorical monstrosity, of little value in its own right, useful only as a source of information about Spanish attitudes to England, the run-up to the Armada of 1588, and curiosities and myths of English reformation history. Weinreich urges us not to raid the work but to read it as a whole. His fluent and readable translation is an admirable incentive.Why, then, should we read the Historia' Most English-language scholarship has treated the First Part (1588) as an adaptation of Nicholas ...

  • The Society of Jesus in Ireland, Scotland, and England, 1598–1606. "Lest
           Our Lamp be Entirely Extinguished." by Thomas M. McCoog (review)
    • Abstract: Thomas McCoog, S.J., has achieved two historical feats in his books on Elizabethan Jesuits. First, he has provided the most thoroughly researched, even-handed account of early modern English Jesuit activities to date. Second, and just as importantly, his work hearkens back to (unfortunately) bygone days of history-writing that was meticulous, exhaustive, and confident in its ability to describe events as they were, or better put, as the sources suggest they were. His "trilogy" on Elizabethan Catholicism is a testament to McCoog's exemplary scholarship steeped in a rich mix of secondary sources and an unmatched intimacy with Jesuit primary sources, especially those at the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu.

  • Pie XI: Le Pape de l'Action Catholique by Marcel Launay (review)
    • Abstract: After Benedict XVI's Motu proprio in 2006, which established the opening of the Vatican Secret Archives to the documents related to Pius XI's pontificate, several scholars from all over the world went to Rome to get access to the new records. From then onwards, numerous books and conference proceedings were published, pointing out historians' strong interest for the position of the Holy See in the international arena in the decades between the two world wars.In the Introduction of this new monograph on Pius XI, Launey avows that the new Curial documents allowed a renewal of the research with what has been qualified as a "historical zeal" (p. 8). Unfortunately, this book has no critical apparatus; therefore it is ... Read More

    • Abstract: A conference at the Italo-German Center at Villa Vigoni (Lake Como) yielded the collection of essays in this volume. Some are written in German and some in Italian but all begin with English summaries. Raffaella Perin, who edited the collection, begins with an introduction that asks "why another conference on Pius XI'" One can locate, she states, much of the answer in the recent flurry of information released with the Vatican's opening of Pius' archives a few years ago. The current thinking, however, has not resolved the controversies related to Pius, the Holy See, and antisemitism, and the first three of the volume's contributions reflect this: Dominik Burkard's on the Holy See's condemnation of Alfred Rosenberg's ...

  • Anti-Catholicism in America, 1620–1860 by Maura Jane Farrelly
           (review)
    • Abstract: Professor Maura Jane Farrelly has written a short, yet significant new book on an old topic, anti-Catholicism in antebellum America. Eighty years ago, Ray Allen Billington and Sister Mary Augustine Ray addressed this topic, yet it has certainly drawn real academic interest over the past two decades. Although anti-Catholicism has dissipated over the last half-century, it has not altogether disappeared. As Farrelly observes, for much of the nation's early history, American religious and political leaders viewed Catholicism as a threat to "national identity individual liberty, personal salvation, and the stability of free government" (p. xi.). Certainly the Catholic Church represented different threats to various ... Read More

  • Dagger John: Archbishop John Hughes and the Making of Irish America by

    • Abstract: Four decades have elapsed since a serious study of New York's fourth bishop and first archbishop appeared (Dagger John: The Unquiet Life and Times of Archbishop John Hughes of New York, by Richard Shaw [New York: Paulist Press, 1977]). John Loughery, an already accomplished author, has revisited the major events comprising Archbishop Hughes' career, and sees in those events not only the ecclesial rise of one man, but a similar circumstance for his largely Irish flock. The political, social, and religious controversy that always followed him, or that he himself created in his bully pulpit, made the already formidable Irish presence in America all the more a force to be reckoned with.Such events as the New York City ...

    • Abstract: In Catholic Borderlands: Mapping Catholicism onto American Empire, 1905–1935, Anne M. Martínez examines the reasons why the Reverend Francis Clement Kelley and the Catholic Church Extension Society embraced the Spanish Catholic legacy of North America and the impact of their activities in the former Spanish territories. Feeling alienated as anti-Catholic sentiment increased in the United States, Kelley sought to formulate and incorporate Catholic identity into the Protestant-dominated American historical narrative. Martínez's work illustrates how Kelley intended to restrict the growing Protestant influence in historically Catholic regions by embracing the Spanish Catholic heritage. Furthermore, Martínez ...

    • Abstract: This great tome of almost 600 pages fills an important gap in the institutional story of Catholicism in the United States. Reworking his doctoral dissertation, Anello admits the difficulty of creating a coherent narrative since there is no one accepted definition of a minor seminary. There are four-year high schools and four-year colleges. There are six-year programs encompassing high school and junior college. Finally, one might include the first two years of a philosophical-theological program. Minor seminaries were sponsored by dioceses and religious communities. Some served seminarians exclusively and some included lay students. Many were residential programs, while others were day programs or a combination of ... Read More

  • The Politics of Religion and the Rise of Social Catholicism in Peru
           (1884-1935): Faith, Workers and Race before Liberation Theology by Ricardo
           Daniel Cubas Ramacciotti (review)
    • Abstract: Ricardo Daniel Cubas Ramacciotti's well-researched study insists that the story of Catholicism in Peru cannot be understood without tracing the complex evolution of church-state relations in this ethnically diverse country. It also argues that the formation of its national identity is tied to this story.Engagement with social issues that liberationists place at the center of faith became a pivotal concern of the Peruvian church as it struggled for autonomy at the close of the nineteenth century. This struggle was enjoined with Spanish regalism (royal supremacy over the Church), during colonization, through late-eighteenth century Enlightenment reform, and up to the declaration of Peruvian independence in 1821. ...

  • To Sin No More: Franciscans and Conversion in the Hispanic World,
           1683–1830 by David Rex Galindo (review)
    • Abstract: During the last thirty years, historians, anthropologists, theologians, and scholars in other disciplines have greatly expanded our knowledge of Franciscan missions in the Iberian world. Their studies analyze not only the well-known frontier missions in the Americas and Asia but also the so-called "popular missions" that Franciscans conducted in cities and rural areas of Europe, often in preparation for their work in the overseas empire. In To Sin No More, David Rex Galindo draws on this new scholarship (his introduction provides an excellent survey of the literature), on classic studies of the Franciscan order, and, most importantly, on deep archival work on three continents in order to analyze the theory and ...

  • Volunteering for a Cause: Gender, Faith, and Charity in Mexico from the
           Reform to the Revolution by Silvia Marina Arrom (review)
    • Abstract: Catholic charity in nineteenth-century Mexico flourished (instead of shrinking) in the presence of state-sponsored anticlerical liberalism. This success came as male and female lay members of the St. Vincent De Paul charitable organization functioned in complimentary roles to improve the lives of poor Mexicans. So argues historian Silvia Arrom in this readable and well-organized volume on the overlooked history of charitable programs in Mexico between Independence (1821) and the 1910 Revolution.Having done research in Paris and Mexico City as well as regional archives, Arrom uses a clear, concise style in this work, which shores up weaknesses on the topic of charity. The introduction and chapter one counter the ... Read More
