  • Frances Cabrini, American Exceptionalism, and Returning to Rome
    • Abstract: Kathleen Sprows Cummings President The American Catholic Historical Association 2017(Photo credit: Department of American Studies, University of Notre Dame)December 22, 2017, marked the centenary of the death of Frances Cabrini, a native of northern Italy, founder of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (M.S.C.), and the first U.S. citizen to be canonized a saint. The milestone inspired commemorations in the United States and in Italy, where Pope Francis was particularly effusive, praising Cabrini's courageous efforts to bring the love of Christ to those who had traveled far from home.1 Francis' admiration for Cabrini predates his elevation to the papacy, and, in fact, the former Cardinal Bergoglio's ...

  • Vernacular Bible Reading in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe: The
           "Catholic" Position Revisited
    • Abstract: On March 22, 1546, the papal legates at the Council of Trent, Giovanni Maria del Monte, Marcello Cervini, and Reginald Pole sent the secretary Angelo Massarelli to the residency of the Spanish Cardinal Pedro Pacheco with a delicate mission. Only a few days earlier, Pacheco had made a plea before the Council fathers to have a general prohibition placed upon Bible reading in the vernacular. The proposal, however, had met with fierce opposition from others, not the least from Cardinal Cristoforo Madruzzo, Prince-Bishop of Trent and host of the Council, so that a painful division manifested itself among the Council fathers. Masserelli was sent to Pacheco, in order to convince him to drop his hotly-contested ... Read More

  • James Murray: A Forgotten Champion of Religious Freedom
    • Abstract: In 1764 a Scottish soldier liberated the most intensively hated minority in the English-speaking world. In a newly conquered colony alien in culture, language, and religion, he pioneered tolerance in the British Empire—and thus much of the planet. Histories about religious freedom should mark his breakthrough. Instead his name is now almost unknown.James Murray was a man of actions rather than of words; perhaps that is one cause of his current obscurity. Moreover, his feat was in a polity too little studied—one of the globe's most successful and least messianic countries. That nation is Canada.London's 1760 conquest of France's province in North America could easily have become yet another case of Protestants ... Read More

  • The Arabist and Explorer Alois Musil (1868–1944) and His Unfulfilled
           Career as a Biblical Scholar
    • Abstract: A native of Moravia (born June 30, 1868, in the village of Rychtařov, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, now the Czech Republic), Alois Musil's childhood was marked by hard work on the family homestead. The basic features of his character undoubtedly began to form at this time, these being an indefatigable capacity for hard work and a steadfastness and tenacity linked with a certain amount of coolness and personal detachment, typical in his day, but in Musil's case quite pronounced. Musil lived for his work and remained permanently engaged in its undertaking. Despite the doubts and opposition of his parents, he began attending grammar school at the age of eleven where he initially experienced difficulties due to ... Read More

  • "Signa temporum": Religious Health Care, Empire, and Christian-Muslim
           Relations in Western Tanzania, 1920s–1960s
    • Abstract: This article uses religious health institutions of Catholic women missionaries as an illustrative case to examine ideas about empire and Christian-Muslim relations in Western Tanzania from the mid-1920s to the 1960s. Although existing literature gives more weight to the missionary enterprise as a triumph of male missionaries, it is worth appreciating the place of female missionaries in the health sector, empire building, and changing relations between Christians and Muslims. Female missionaries run a considerable number of religious health institutions in Tanzania. They include St. Joseph Peramiho Hospital in Songea, Ndanda Mission Hospital at Masasi, Dareda Hospital in Mbulu Catholic diocese, Makiungu Hospital in ... Read More

  • Traditions of Eloquence: The Jesuits and Modern Rhetorical Studies ed. by
           Cinthia Gannett and John C. Brereton (review)
    • Abstract: A few years ago a group of scholars and teachers, members of the Jesuit Conference on Rhetoric and Composition, confident that their special gift—a theory of reading, writing, and speaking called "Jesuit Rhetoric"—is fundamental to higher education, as a sort intellectual gospel, held that it should be reinforced and spread. The result is Traditions of Eloquence, a 444-page treasure, in which thirty-five scholars (including three Jesuits) from sixteen Catholic and eleven secular universities record the history of Jesuit teaching tactics, as they adapted their application without compromising the principles Jesuits stressed in the 1540s. The book argues that eloquentia perfecta (rhetoric) can "overcome the ... Read More

  • Le Chiese Orientali: Sintesi storica by Giorgio Fedalto (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars of the Christian East have employed different methods to make sense of the vast and complex array of churches in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and beyond. One method is to group these churches according to "rites," thus treating together the churches of the Byzantine rite, for example, even if some of the churches of that tradition might be estranged from one another. A second method has been to group them according to communions, which yields the four categories of churches that exist today: the Assyrian Church of the East, the Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox, and Catholic Eastern Churches.In this new book, the Reverend Giorgio Fedalto, professor emeritus of Christian history at the University of ...

  • Faith in Formulae: A Collection of Early-Christian Creeds and
           Creed-related Texts translated by Wolfram Kinzig (review)
    • Abstract: Wolfram Kinzig's Faith in Formulae is an essential acquisition for any research library with holdings in early or medieval Christianity. It supersedes August Hahn's Bibliothek der Symbole und Glaubensregeln der Alten Kirche (1842; 2nd ed. 1877; 3rd ed. 1897) and Philip Schaff's second volume of Creeds of Christendom with a History and Critical Notes (1877), which have shaped the scholarship of the last century and a half. Kinzig's book most naturally follows in Hahn's footsteps, and so is quite different from Valerie R. Hotchkiss and Jaroslav Pelikan's Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition (2003), which covered the entire Christian tradition, and, being not so focused on philology, printed only ...

  • Retrieving History: Memory and Identity Formation in the Early Church by
           Stefana Dan Laing (review)
    • Abstract: Stefana Dan Laing's book on early Christian historical writing appears in a series called "Evangelical Ressourcement," intended to replicate for evangelical Christians something analogous to the "return to the sources" that animated preconciliar Catholic theology. She wishes to reconnect evangelicals to Christianity's ancient sources, which, she points out, cannot be limited to the Bible. She believes this is especially necessary in a time of historical "forgetfulness" for the sake of preserving and nurturing evangelical identity. Returning to the sources also helps compensate for evangelicalism's preference for the individual and the "vertical" with awareness of the place for the communal and the ... Read More

  • Destroyer of the Gods: Early Christian Distinctiveness in the Roman World
           by Larry W. Hurtado (review)
    • Abstract: After Constantine, the changes that befell Rome guaranteed a lasting place for the emperor in histories of the Church. For Eusebius, he upended a way of life: ransacking sanctuaries, granting Christians tax privileges, banning sacrifice. For some modern historians, from Rodney Stark to Peter Brown, Romans flocked to Christianity in the decades following. Constantine looms over Larry Hurtado's new book, as well. In his retelling, "Constantine adopted Christianity likely because it had already become so successful despite earlier efforts to destroy the movement" (p. 5).What "success" has meant for groups throughout history, of course, has always been in the eye of the beholder: from numerical increase to a welcome ...

  • Orderic Vitalis: Life Works and Interpretations ed. by Charles C. Rozier
           et al. (review)
    • Abstract: This book, while essential for all who would get to the bottom of the twelfth-century Anglo-Norman historian Orderic Vitalis, is not an easy book to read. It is, in fact, a very heavy book, in many places hard to follow, even obscure. Those interested in an overview of Orderic, set in the context of the major period in historiography represented by the twelfth century, would do well to avoid this book, taking instead, perhaps, an article such as that by the present reviewer—listed on page 403 of this book, but never used or referred to—or else the papers by Roger Ray listed on page 402!This volume, "the first complete volume of essays entirely devoted to the study of Orderic Vitalis" (p. 14), is dedicated, quite ...

  • Underground Protestantism in Sixteenth Century Spain: A Much Ignored Side
           of Spanish History by Frances Luttihuizen (review)
    • Abstract: Underground Protestantism in Sixteenth Century Spain is a puzzling book. The author seems to have put a lifetime of work into it, for it teems with facts about the genealogies, marriages, careers, travels, and publications of sixteenth-century Spaniards who found evangelical doctrines attractive and pursued them at great personal risk. The volume also takes up the nineteenth- and twentieth-century scholars who rediscovered and collected the treatises of these Spanish Protestants, and in some cases, put them into print. Its three appendices contain, in order: 1) a list of prohibited books confiscated by the Spanish Inquisition in Seville, which the author dates to 1563; 2) a list of editions and translations of the ...

           Inquisition in the Town of Deza, 1569–1611 translated by Patrick J.
           O'Banion (review)
    • Abstract: This fascinating book provides in English translation ninety-two Inquisition documents about the Moriscos in one small New Castilian town. Deza had 1,600 inhabitants, of which about 400 were Moriscos, who were in contact with a nearby zone of Aragón where Moriscos in higher concentration maintained customs and religion.1 The documents range over the period from 1569, when because of the rebellion in the Alpujarras region of Granada, Moriscos in general became more suspect, and 1611, when those of Deza, along with most of the others in Spain, were expelled to North Africa. The material includes denunciations to visiting inquisitors, confessions in order to receive edicts of grace, a sample sentence in a prominent ... Read More

    • Abstract: Charles H. Parker and Gretchen Starr-LeBeau have designed a sophisticated, nuanced examination of disciplinary institutions over time from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century and across space from Europe to Asia. The book contains twenty-five succinct essays arranged in eleven sections and three parts. The first eight sections address the topics: local contexts and regional variations, tribunals and jurisdictions, judges and shepherds, records, programs of moral and religious reform, victims as actors, negotiating penance, and gender. The last three concern extra-European areas and the decline of disciplinary institutions. Emphasis in each essay falls on the state of the art on each topic and area and ... Read More

  • Vincenzo Tizzani. Effemeridi Romane, Volume Primo: 1828–1860 by
           Giuseppe Maria Croce (review)
    • Abstract: Monsignor Vincenzo Tizzani (1809–1892) was one of the most important figures in papal and post-papal (after 1870) Rome, during the "long nineteenth century" of Catholicism. Scholars could already access his diary of the First Vatican Council, edited by Lajos Pasztor in two volumes in 1991 for the series "Päpste und Papsttum." But now, our knowledge of the life and work of Tizzani makes a definitive step forward thanks to another multi-volume opus magnum published by the former archivist of the Archivio Segreto Vaticano, Giuseppe Maria Croce. This first of two volumes is a mine of information on a very important part of nineteenth-century Catholicism, the Rome of the popes between Pius VII and Leo XIII. Tizzani's ... Read More

  • Pressed by a Double Loyalty: Hungarian Attendance at the Second Vatican
           Council, 1959–1965 by András Fejérdy (review)
    • Abstract: Rarely are results of Hungarian historiography published in a foreign language.1 Thus, András Fejérdy's volume, which examines the attendance of the Hungarian bishops at the Second Vatican Council, is particularly worthy of notice as it examines their participation in the light of the Ostpolitik, relying heavily, as it does on Hungarian government archives. The volume is a slightly amplified version of Dr. Fejérdy's doctoral dissertation, which was published in 2011 in Hungarian. It can be rightly stated that this comprehensive overview is presented by an expert familiar with several aspects of this subject.The title of the book itself is revealing. The Hungarian bishops allowed to travel to Rome had to satisfy two ... Read More

  • Holy Rus': The Rebirth of Orthodoxy in the New Russia by John P. Burgess

    • Abstract: In his highly readable volume, Burgess provides a systematic account of the lived religious experiences of ordinary Russians and how they interact with and shape the structures that the official Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) has developed since 1991. His central research question is whether "re-Christianisation [is] actually taking place and if so, just what difference does it make (…) for people's lives individually and as a nation'" (p. 16). Burgess uses the somewhat ambiguous term "Holy Rus" to refer to the ROC's aspirations for itself and the Russian people. This aspiration obviously involves attracting Russians to the Church and encouraging them to participate in its rituals and to accept its beliefs and ... Read More

Father Sheeran penned this 1656-page handwritten account of his travels, trials, and travails while serving as a Catholic chaplain from 1862 to 1865. He witnessed numerous battles, including Second Bull Run, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and the bloody encounters of the Wilderness campaign in 1864. An observer, albeit from a safe distance, however he witnessed the brutality of battle and the horrific suffering of the wounded.He was born in County Longford, Ireland; two sources list the year of birth as 1819 but they cannot agree on the day. sometime ...

    • Abstract: Mercurial even for those who carry the label "polyglot," Jesuit Father John Wynne (1859-1948) taught, edited, served as a shrine director, chaplain, vice-postulator or promotor of saints' causes, and founder or organizer of numerous American Catholic organizations (including the American Catholic Historical Association) between 1882 and 1948. Not since 1926, when he was feted for his fiftieth jubilee as a Jesuit, has there been any sustained attention given to the legacy left by this enterprising Catholic.The present study is Lombardo's 2014 University of Dayton dissertation (now an open-access document), presented with only minor revision. it places Wynne in the thick of debates raging in the Progressive Era, but ...

  • Sin in the Sixties: Catholics and Confession, 1955–1975 by Maria C.
           Morrow (review)
    • Abstract: Maria Morrow's interesting book chronicles the collapse by 1975 of a Catholic penitential culture that had been in a flourishing state on the eve of the Second Vatican Council. Sacramental confession lay at the heart of this culture, with many Catholics—although probably not a majority—confessing at least monthly by the close of the 1950s. But that penitential culture also encompassed compulsory fasting, periodic abstinence from meat, voluntary personal sacrifice during Lent and even Advent, and an emphasis on the reparative dimensions of suffering. Meatless Fridays and austere Lents, in Morrow's telling, did more than define a people. They underwrote an acute consciousness of personal sin among Catholics and thus ... Read More
