  • Europe in the Age of Reformations: The Modern State and
           Confessionalization
    • Abstract: As the 500th anniversary of the Reformation approaches, we are reminded that history is one long transition. As with all civilizations handing over the baton, it is not outside agencies that are killing the West but the West killing itself. But what is specific to our times is that we have lost sight of the shore from which we set out: at most, through a thick fog we glimpse heaps of rubble that we have shed in the last century or so, from the Decalogue to the atomic bomb and the Shoah. On a lighter note, you will smile to hear (if it does not make you weep) how a third-year university student of colleague Claudia Pancino answered a question on the distinction between de praesenti marriage and de futuro marriage (a ...

  • What Was the Catholic Reformation?: Marian Piety and the
           Universalization of Divine Love
    • Abstract: In 1630 French Jesuit François Poiré published “The Triple Crown of the Mother of God,” a thick treatise in two volumes about the Virgin Mary.1 Poiré’s central idea was that the Holy Virgin is the queen of heaven and earth in a triple way. She is perfect (“first crown”), she is almighty (“second crown”), and she is most benevolent with her servants (“third crown”). Since she is the “most beloved daughter of God,” the “spouse of the Holy Spirit,” the “elder sister of all pure creatures,” the “only immaculate,” the “queen of all virtues,” the “honor of Heaven and earth,”2 she has been chosen to have power even over the Almighty. As the mother of God, she has authority over her son; as the spouse of God, she shares ... Read More

  • A “Spiritual War of Words”: Lorenzo da Brindisi and Capuchin Polemical
           Preaching in Early-Modern Prague
    • Abstract: During the early-modern period, both Catholics and Protestants believed themselves to be engaged in martial combat. Their war was not necessarily one of infantrymen and artillery but, first and foremost, a spiritual war of apocalyptic proportions over the souls of Europe. Among the notable but understudied figures of the time was the Capuchin order’s leading personality: St. Lorenzo da Brindisi (1559-1619), the Roman Church’s “Apostolic Doctor.” The confessional struggles of the age manifested themselves across Europe: England, France, the Swiss Confederation, and the many states of the Holy Roman Empire. But it was in the Kingdom of Bohemia, in the Prague of Emperor Rudolf II (r. 15761612), that Lorenzo found his ... Read More

  • “To Destroy Popery and Everything Appertinent Thereto”: William
           Chaney, the Jesuit John Bapst, and the Know-Nothings in
           Mid-Nineteenth-Century Maine
    • Abstract: In July 1854, the selectmen of Ellsworth, Maine, called for a town meeting to denounce a spate of anti-Catholic violence in the lumbering and ship-building town. When the citizens gathered on July 8 at the Congregational Church, those responsible for much of the recent violence packed the meeting, dashing the peace-seeking hopes of the Ellsworth officials. The members of the “Cast Iron Band,” a branch of the larger anti-immigrant and anti-Catholic Know-Nothing movement, proceeded to take control of the agenda and vote out the sitting Democratic majority replacing them with members of their own number. Once in power the newly elected selectmen passed a resolution threatening to tar and feather “one John Bapst, S.J. ... Read More

  • Journeys in Church History: Essays from the Catholic Historical Review ed.
           by Nelson H. Minnich (review)
    • Abstract: In 2007 the Catholic Historical Review initiated a series of essays inviting colleagues who have made distinguished contributions to church history to reflect on their own professional lives and work. Edited by Nelson H. Minnich, this book reprints the first fruits of this program, essays by Elizabeth Clark, Caroline Walker Bynum, Jean Delumeau (as translated by Daniel V. Frascella), John W. O’Malley, S.J., Margaret Lavinia Anderson, and Philip Gleason. It is an intellectual treasure to have these six essays between the covers of a single book.Minnich organizes the volume in the chronological order of the periods which the essayists have made their own: Clark on patristics, Bynum on medieval Christian thought and ...

  • God Mocks: A History of Religious Satire from the Hebrew Prophets to
           Stephen Colbert by Terry Lindvall (review)
    • Abstract: Writers with an inclination to satire invariably encounter the challenge of where to draw the line between admissible and excessive expressions of mockery and derision. Terry Lindvall’s ebullient and wide-ranging survey of the satiric tradition within Christian literary culture begins precisely by drawing lines. Conceding that the concept of a Christian satirist always approximates an oxymoron, he proposes a model for evaluating satirical texts in the form of two intersecting axes, the x axis running from ridicule to moral purpose and the y axis from rage to humor. This cruciform graphic appears once in each of his ten chapters, offering a useful visual measure of authors’ didactic intent (or lack thereof) and what ... Read More

  • The King James Bible: Across Borders and Centuries ed. by Angelica Duran
           (review)
    • Abstract: Carrying the momentum established by 400th anniversary publications and conferences, this book bodes well for the direction of KJV studies, as it becomes a cohesive field in its own right—and not one for just English professors any more. The “world literature” focus of the essay collection helps it bridge the gap between English literary approaches and biblical studies, creating a space for reception history of the Bible to unfold in accordance with individual scholars’ prior areas of expertise and new research directions.All of the essays make valuable contributions, while one stood out to me as particularly noteworthy and representative of the kind of helpful work that now can be done, building on the foundation ...

  • Mary in Early Christian Faith and Devotion by Stephen J. Shoemaker
           (review)
    • Abstract: Stephen Shoemaker’s excellent book makes an important contribution to our knowledge of Marian devotion in early Christianity. Indeed, he is probably the first to undertake the academic task of recreating the development of Marian piety and cult up to the fifth century with a clear sense of timeline and the incorporation of a diverse range of sources.Shoemaker uses the historical evidence convincingly to dismiss two over-simple answers to the question. The first, which may be a popular Roman Catholic or Orthodox viewpoint, is that devotion to the Virgin Mary extends back unbroken to her lifetime. There is simply no evidence for this. The gospels of Luke and John honor Mary in their different ways, but there is no ... Read More

  • Alms: Charity, Reward, and Atonement in Early Christianity by David J.
           Downs (review)
    • Abstract: Despite its title, this book is not about what early Christians did for the poor, but studies the texts deployed by early Christian writers from the first to the third century to articulate the meritorious or atoning power of almsgiving. In contrast to Roman Garrison’s 1993 Redemptive Almsgiving in Early Christianity, David Downs argues that avowal of the atoning power of almsgiving was not opposed to “avowal of the unique, atoning death of Jesus” (p. 6). Since Christians drew extensively on the Septuagint, the book is as much about how we read key Jewish as well as Christian texts.An introduction distinguishes between “meritorious” and “atoning” almsgiving, sketches how wealth was unequally distributed in the ...

  • Il divino senza veli: La dottrina gnostica della Lettera valentiniana’
           di Epifanio, Panarion 31 5-6. Testo, traudzione e commento
           storico-religioso by Giuliano Chiapparini (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars are often (begrudgingly) grateful to Epiphanius for his preservation of otherwise lost texts in his massive heresiology, the Panarion. In particular, those interested in “Gnosticism” have benefitted from Epiphanius’s documentary practices, especially for Ptolemy’s Letter to Flora and portions of Irenaeus’s Against Heresies in their original Greek. While there is a growing body of recent scholarship interested in studying Epiphanius in his own right, there is also a long-standing scholarly practice of mining his writings for information on those whom he condemned as heretics. The learned study under review here fits into the latter category and will be of particular interest to scholars of Valentinian ... Read More

  • Christianity and Culture in the Middle Ages. Essays to Honor John Van
           Engen ed. by David C. Mengel and Lisa Wolverton (review)
    • Abstract: The chapters assembled in Christianity and Culture in the Middle Ages explore European history across centuries and regions. The volume’s coherence and charm arise from the hommage offered by each contribution to an inspiring historian and teacher—John Van Engen. Van Engen’s work has treated diverse areas of medieval religious life, as the list of his publications offered on pages 501-506 shows. He has impressively studied twelfth-century monastic life and thought, as well as religious initiatives developed by and for lay people—often women—in the cities of north west Europe in the later Middle Ages. He also wrote an influential article „The Christian Middle Ages as an Historiographical Problem”1 which forms the ... Read More

  • Monastères et espace social: Genèse et transformation d’un système de
           lieux dans l’Occident médiéval ed. by Michel Lauwers (review)
    • Abstract: This extensive collection of specialized articles on seventh- to fifteenth-century monasteries and social space covers models, places, movement, hierarchy, functions, and settings at Saint-Gall, Cluny, Marmoutier, Fontevraud, and other famous abbeys in Western Europe and the British Isles. Michel Lauwers notes that Western monasticism moved from fourth-century solitude to seventh-century community, with a standard architectural structure of a cloister surrounded by spe-cialized buildings. Ninth-century monasteries included laypersons: patrons, laborers, pilgrims, possibly armed men, resulting in a complex society and accompanying physical structure, which Sofia Uggé divides into community spaces: church, cloister ...

  • The Formation of Christian Europe: The Carolingians, Baptism, and the
           Imperium Christianum by Owen M. Phelan (review)
    • Abstract: This is a welcome book. The author argues how reformers under Charlemagne used baptism, understood as sacramentum, as the fundamental organizing principle for Carolingian imperial society—a development that would shape the European world throughout the medieval period and beyond. One of the great strengths of this book is how it combines the study of intellectual history, ritual theory and practice, the framing and legitimizing of political power, and the development of a particular religious identity within an imperial framework. Chapter 1 offers a genealogy of sacramentum as an ordering concept from Antiquity to the early Middle Ages. Key here was the overlap between legal and theological meanings. Indeed ... Read More

  • Conquerors, Brides, and Concubines: Interfaith Relations and Social Power
           in Medieval Iberia by Simon Barton (review)
    • Abstract: In Conquerors, Brides, and Concubines Simon Barton analyzes the varied and complicated ways in which group identity, interfaith sexuality, and power interacted in medieval Iberia—centering on relationships between Muslims and Christians. He focusses on interfaith sexual liaisons showing how they were “conducted, perceived, manipulated, and above all, controlled” (p. 4), and how attitudes towards this mixing changed over time, as a reaction to local circumstances and general trends. Even though the book centers on the medieval period, both within al-Andalus and the Christian dominated lands, it also explores the reverberation that the cultural memory of those relationships had in Iberian culture. Indeed, the popular ... Read More

    • Abstract: These two books outline recent thought and current lines of enquiry on the origins and dissemination of the great canon law forgeries widely known as Pseudo-Isidore, which today are commonly believed to have begun life at or around the monastery of Corbie in the 830s. The Pseudo-Isidorian decretals are often considered one of the most influential forgery collections of the Middle Ages; many Pseudo-Isidorian concepts would go on to provide a platform for the “Gregorian reform” and the growth of papal power in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Recent Pseudo-Isidorian studies have been galvanized by the work of Klaus Zechiel-Eckes, who died in 2010 and is honored by the collection Fälschung als Mittel der Politik? ... Read More

    • Abstract: By its translations in numerous languages, Michael Psellos’ Chronography made the text accessible to audiences not necessarily familiar with the medieval Greek of one of the most sophisticated Byzantine authors. On the grounds of style, rhetorical vividness, and especially of the authorial-self that pervades it, the text is deservedly considered a major achievement of the eleventh-century Byzantine literary production. In contrast to the Chronography, access to the rest of Psellos’ œuvre, which comprises almost all literary genres, displays a variety of stylistic levels and rhetorical devices, and predominantly sets the subject matter within a theoretical framework, has long been exclusively available to the ...

The thirteen essays in this volume present excellent examples of this sophisticated understanding.The contributors come from a range of disciplinary backgrounds: economic history, economic theory, numismatics, religion, and literature.

A challenge for medievalists, especially those who teach, is to harness and educate this enthusiasm without diminishing it. Aptly, a goal of The Routledge History of Medieval Christianity: 1050-1500, edited by R. N. Swanson, is to present the history of medieval Christianity as a living discipline.

    • Abstract: In the 1120s and 1130s, English Benedictine monks produced an influential and remarkable set of collections of the miracles of the Virgin Mary. Unlike earlier Marian miracle collections produced on the Continent and the more usual type of miracle collection being compiled at English shrines in the period, the stories in these English Marian collections were cosmopolitan, ranging widely in time and place, with stories of the Virgin’s miracles in Italy, Spain, and the eastern Mediterranean as well as in northern Europe. William of Malmesbury’s lengthy text of some fifty-three chapters holds an important place within this flowering of Marian collections: it represents, as the editors of this text put it, “the ...

  • The Making of the Historia scholastica, 1150-1200 by Mark Clark (review)
    • Abstract: The Historia scholastica of Peter Comestor, Chancellor of Notre-Dame until around 1178, has been unjustly neglected as an exegetical masterpiece of the later twelfth century. Clark seeks to overturn an assumption made by Martin Grabmann and others that Peter Comestor should be bracketed more with so-called “biblicalmoral” teachers like Peter the Chanter than speculative theologians like Peter Lombard. Such a dichotomy, Clark argues, does a profound disservice to Peter Comestor, who he argues was a close and loyal disciple, not just of Peter Lombard, but of the Magna glosatura on the Bible, which Peter Lombard played a key role in establishing. Given the wide influence of the Historia scholastica, the task of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Norman F. Shead’s new edition of the 259 surviving episcopal acta from twelfth-century Scotland is extremely welcome. Although many articles have appeared on individual bishops and the foundation of cathedral chapters (by G. W. S. Barrow, Dauvit Broun, A. A. M. Duncan, and, of course, those by Shead himself), historians of the emerging medieval Scottish episcopate are still reliant on the much earlier work of Gordon Donaldson and—now more than a century old—that of John Dowden. The texts of many twelfth-century episcopal acta were also only available in nineteenth-century editions, of which many are problematic. This new edition does not disappoint. There is an efficient yet wide-ranging introduction setting out ... Read More

She writes that she began with the assumption that in the course of her project she would identify distinctive liturgical characteristics that in turn would reflect distinctive Franciscan identities. She found something quite different and produced a volume that those of us who work on illuminated manuscripts need to consider as we ask how illuminators worked with their clients including religious orders. Indeed she concludes, “I have argued that liturgy was not the primary means of establishing (or attempting to establish) a common identity within the order” (p. 216). Moreover, her effort to ...

This volume is dedicated to the life of Benedetto Caetani up to his coronation as pope on January 23, 1295, and to his first public acts as such. The biography as a whole finds its place in a series (Päpste und Papsttum) that since its beginning in 1970 has been expressly conceived to collect the popes’ lives and studies about the papacy as an institution. In fact, this work was announced already in 1980 by its author, Peter Herde, who as a prominent connoisseur of papal history was also one of the editors of the series itself. The work is therefore the result of thirty-five years of research.The theme in itself is huge, many-sided ... Read More

    • Abstract: During the fourteenth century, Pleshey Castle in Essex was the locus of a remarkable confluence of patrons, artists, and scribes. The patrons were members of the wealthy and prominent Bohun family, and two of the artists, John de Teye and Henry Hood, were Augustinian friars attached to their household. During the second half of the century, the illuminators and scribes at Pleshey produced a number of profusely-decorated manuscripts, of which twelve complete or fragmentary examples remain as witnesses to a large and coherent group. In Illuminators and Patrons, Lucy Freeman Sandler places a prayerbook made for the last male Bohun in the context of this important group.The first part of Illuminators and Patrons ... Read More

While manuscript survival alone is not necessarily an indicator of popularity, the forty-six manuscripts bearing all or some of the Vade mecum speak to widespread medieval interest in the Franciscan visionarycum-alchemist’s work, which only recently has been matched by scholars’.The edition of the Latin text, edited by Eleana Tealdi, consists of just over fifty pages, and includes a medieval synopsis of the contents.

  • Beyond Reformation? An Essay on William Langland’s Piers Plowman and the
           End of Constantinian Christianity by David Aers (review)
    • Abstract: In this fine, provocative essay David Aers extends his previous studies of Piers Plowman to explore Langland’s attitudes toward the theological and social issues of his time as set out in the final version of the poem, the C-text, and reflects on their relevance to current concerns. He believes that those writing “grand narratives” of the history of religious movements need to take fuller account of the poem, which addresses a very modern topic, the dechristianization of society. Aers argues that explorations of Langland’s position have been so concerned to demonstrate that he was not a Wycliffite, as he was painted at the Reformation, that they have overlooked his very unorthodox views. Wyclif’s solution to the ... Read More

Serving as a connecting zone between the confessional states in Europe and the Ottoman Empire, during the modern age the Mediterranean has been the stage where numerous characters acted, and who, despite their different responsibilities, contributed to connecting the Christian West with the Muslim East. In this context, alongside the figures with institutional tasks at the service of the States, there were also corsairs, spies, interpreters, religious ... Read More

The bulk of the secondary literature has investigated selected chapters on usury and just pricing in the learned work, written in Latin, of some of the most famous representatives of this movement, such as Francisco de Vitoria, Domingo de Soto, Luis de Molina, Leonardus Lessius, and Juan de Lugo.

The subject is certainly neither unknown nor noncontroversial, in part because of the very dramatic portrait Knox gave of himself in his own rather polemical History of the Reformation in Scotland, published after his death, using materials he had left behind. Dawson does an admirable job of cutting through some of that fog and presenting a portrait of Knox for the twenty-first century, one which contextualizes his flaws without necessarily excusing them.The ...

First, the Atlas Marianus was both a highly successful and peculiar book in seventeenth-century Catholic literature, which makes it an interesting object of study for the history of piety. It is not an atlas, but a collection of legends about miraculous images of the Virgin Mary, with engravings representing the miraculous image. Whereas such books were usually confined to specific places, regions, or polities, Gumppenberg’s project was to assemble all the known miraculous images and to show in this way that “the world is Marian.” His ...

From 1728, Jean-Baptiste Girard, S.J., had been the spiritual director of Catherine Cadière, in Toulon; but in 1730 she accused him of witchcraft (of bewitching her), of touching her in indecent ways, of impregnating her, and of inducing an abortion. Girard denied all of it and insisted that she was a liar and a hysteric engaging in a false show of supposedly ... Read More

  • Abbé Sicard’s Deaf Education: Empowering the Mute, 1785–1820 by Emmet
           Kennedy (review)
    • Abstract: Emmet Kennedy’s newest book presents the fascinating account of the life of Abbé Roch-Ambroise Sicard (1742–1822) and the early development of education for the deaf in France. In fact, the originator of the new approach to such education and the initiator of the first systematic language of signs was Sicard’s mentor, the much better-known Abbé Charles-Michel de l’Épée (1712-1789), who had been active in Paris since the 1760s. But it was Sicard who struggled successfully to carry on his predecessor’s work during the tumultuous events from the beginning of the French Revolution through the Restoration of 1815, thus firmly establishing the first Institution des Sourds-Muets. Kennedy follows Sicard’s efforts in ... Read More

  • The Holy See and the Emergence of the Modern Middle East: Benedict XV’s
           Diplomacy in Greater Syria (1914-1922) by Agnes de Dreuzy (review)
    • Abstract: The pontificate of Benedict XV has been often studied through the lenses of Vatican diplomacy deployed throughout the years of World War I with a particular focus on Europe. Agnes de Dreuzy has shifted the attention to the Middle East, presenting a work on a topic rarely discussed and proposing a positive view of Pope Benedict XV, but, more importantly, showing the agency of Catholic institutions in the Middle East. The Holy See and the Emergence of the Modern Middle East is organized in two main parts and divided into eight chapters. De Dreuzy has relied on a large body of material coming from the Vatican Archives and other Vatican institutions; if on the one hand this is indeed the real strength of this work, on ... Read More

  • Catholic Progressives in England After Vatican II by Jay P Corrin (review)
    • Abstract: We English Catholics are well-trained in the art of keeping our heads down. Perhaps it is the result of a long-history of state persecution of Catholics after our home-grown Reformation in the sixteenth century. Or that most of us (a good 90 per cent) can trace our roots back to more recent immigrant families, mostly Irish, and therefore feel in some hard-to-define way that we are still outsiders, not quite as thoroughly English as our brothers and sisters in the established Church of England.It is, granted, nowadays more of a collective memory than anything tangible, but we are still a minority faith (fewer than ten per cent of the population, even by the most optimistic estimates) and so are pleasantly surprised ...

  • Galen: Wege und Irrwege der Forschung by Joachim Kuropka (review)
    • Abstract: On October 9, 2005, Pope Benedict XVI beautified Cardinal Clemens August Graf von Galen, bishop of Münster (1933–1946). The Church singled out Galen for his piety and for his defense of Catholicism and Catholic morality in the face of National Socialism. Though there is great support in and outside Germany, especially in the Münster diocese, for Galen’s cause of sainthood, a significant number of individuals, historians and non-historians alike, have challenged his worthiness for such a distinguished honor. Joachim Kuropka, professor emeritus of modern European history at the University of Vechta, cannot, however, be counted among this number. For almost four decades, Kuropka has defended Galen’s honor by refuting ... Read More

  • Giuseppe Dossetti e le Officine bolognesi by Paolo Prodi (review)
    • Abstract: Paolo Prodi died on December 16, 2016, at the age of eighty-four. He taught modern history, focusing mainly on the Counter-Reformation era, at universities in Italy and abroad and served as rector of the University of Trent. He also served as a deputy in the Italian Parliament’s eleventh legislature in the 1990s and was widely known beyond academia as the brother of Prime Minister Romano Prodi. Giuseppe Dossetti e le Officine bolognesi is something of a memoir or perhaps a personal history of a place and an era, Bologna, particularly scholarly Bologna, in the 1950s and 1960s, and heavily influenced by a man, Giuseppe Dossetti, the Christian Democratic politician-turned-priest.

  • The Vatican «Ostpolitik», 1958–1978. Responsibility and Witness during
           John XXIII and Paul VI ed. by András Fejérdy (review)
    • Abstract: The relationship between the Vatican and the Eastern European Communist regimes during the 1960s and 1970s has been a topic vehemently discussed but rarely studied sine ira et studio. The most controversial aspect of this relationship has been a complex of diplomatic meetings, discussions, agreements, and their ramifications in various countries under Communist rule, often subsumed as “Vatican Ostpolitik.” The very term goes back to West Germany’s diplomatic engagement since Willy Brandt aimed at finding a modus vivendi with Communist regimes in Europe within the limits set by the Cold War confrontation.Among the most hotly debated problems related to Vatican Ostpolitik are those related to its effects on the ...

  • In the Beginning Was the Word: The Bible in American Public Life,
           1492–1783 by Mark A. Noll (review)
    • Abstract: The Bible, according to the eminent religious historian Mark A. Noll, is by far “the single most widely read text, distributed object, and referenced book in all of American history” (p. 1). In the Beginning Was the Word is a sweeping, yet nuanced, “public history” of that book in America, from the first European encounters with the New World through the War for American Independence. Its focus is on the Bible’s use for “political, imperial, and national purposes” (p. 5). This is an ambitious project, given that Christianity and its sacred text are thoroughly intertwined with the narrative of American history.Noll begins his richly textured and well documented volume with a brief prelude on the first Bibles in the ...

  • Finding God in Solitude: The Personal Piety of Jonathan Edwards
           (1703-1758) and Its Influence on His Pastoral Ministry by Donald S.
           Whitney (review)
    • Abstract: There seems to be an endless supply of books on Jonathan Edwards. Ever since the Harvard historian Perry Miller’s 1949 biography of the American minister and theologian, there has been a revived interest in the academy on Edwards, leading to an increasing number of journal articles, dissertations, and published books that appear annually. Edwards has been examined from nearly every possible vantage point, from George Marsden’s award-winning Yale University Press biography in 2003 to Gerald McDermott and Michael McClymond’s 750-page tome on The Theology of Jonathan Edwards published by Oxford University Press in 2012. In addition to the interest generated by historians and theologians, Edwards has been studied ... Read More

In a fraught time, there is nonetheless room for scholarship that not only addresses fresh archives or renders the known elegantly but also clarifies and illumines. Kathryn Gin Lum’s superb monograph accomplishes each of these objectives and is among the more compelling historical analyses published in recent years. Looking to the early republic, Lum aims to show how “[t]he belief that one’s own eternal safety was tied to the sins of others … invested Americans in the welfare of their peers at home and abroad” (p. 233). This attention to interdependency and intersubjectivity, as well as to the fluidity of hellfire ... Read More

    • Abstract: Dr. Antoinette Sutto offers an English Atlantic history of seventeenth-century Maryland. She surveys the complicated relations between Maryland politics and religion and the English state. Sutto uses religion as a means “to integrate the disjointed events” of the seventeenth century. This is the story of the long, awkward negotiations between the needs of the expanding English state, early modern confessional politics, and the peculiarities of the little Maryland colony. The Calverts, who imposed no religious tests to vote and did not establish a state church, made a “profoundly political and profoundly controversial move.” This overturned an entire edifice of English assumptions about loyalty, law, royal power ...

  • Not a Catholic Nation: The Ku Klux Klan Confronts New England in the 1920s
           by Mark Paul Richard (review)
    • Abstract: Taking its title from the declaration of F. Eugene Farnsworth, King Kleagle of Maine, that “this is not a Catholic nation” (p. 23), Mark Paul Richard’s new history of the Ku Klux Klan in New England is a useful addition to the literature. This is, as Richard writes, a regional story of national phenomena, and the book persuasively illustrates how the regional mechanics of the New England Klan impact our understanding of the organization as a whole.For Richard, the story of the Klan in New England is the story of contemporary Catholic power. Catholic political and social muscle was evident both in the conspiratorial fears that drew bigots to join the self-proclaimed Invisible Empire and in the fight against the ... Read More

Watt is senior pastor at the Christ Lutheran Church of York, Pennsylvania, and his book grew out of a Vanderbilt University dissertation in church history, but it is not a dry-as-dust celebratory chronicle of Catholic and Protestant institutional history. Instead, he offers a sympathetic but not uncritical account of “the roles played by and the interactions among several Christian traditions in the farm worker movement,” mindful that “human activity lies ...

She has broad interest in the relationship between the Christian faith and material world, with a special interest in religious space. The Suburban Church conveys research into church building projects of three significant Midwestern architects: Edward D. Dart, Edward A. Sövik, and Charles E. Stade. Buggeln is especially interested in discovering the socio-cultural influences that motivated building design choices for suburban faith communities in the postwar period. Seventy-five faith communities are examined in particular, the majority of whom are Protestant. The churches examined for Dart and Stade are located ... Read More

  • Russell Kirk: American Conservative by Bradley J. Birzer (review)
    • Abstract: Russell Kirk (1918-–1994) was one of the three or four most important figures in the revival of American conservatism after World War II. Although he worked for Barry Goldwater in 1964 and was a friend of President Reagan in the 1980s, his conservatism was more cultural and literary than political. Political activists on the right regarded him as an impractical dreamer. Whimsical, mannered, a baroque stylist, he gathered disciples and admirers at his out-of-the-way home in Mecosta, Michigan.Bradley Birzer was one of them. He is now the Russell Amos Kirk Professor of History at Hillsdale College, and there can be no doubt that this admiring, sympathetic, and generous biography is an inside job. He makes the common ...

The time period McAndrews has chosen is one of the most important for understanding significant changes in immigration policies, from debates preceding the 1986 Immigration and Reform through post-September 11, 2001, policies on immigration and refugees. Like Cheryl Shanks’ politico-historical analysis of the 1965 Hart-Celler Act and the 1986 IRCA, McAndrews examines key debates, leaders, divisions, and negotiations leading up to major policies but with an exclusive focus on Catholic leaders and the opinions of ...

Educating the Indigenous people of colonial Mexico in matters of morals, law, and social norms and attitudes toward ecclesiastical and civil authorities proved to be a challenging task due to the contradictory demands of the two realms, the religious and secular, upon the indigenous peoples and the missionaries’ conviction that the Indians needed to be protected from the abuses of the secular authorities.

These books treated the subject matter in general terms, and their contributions were the first writings and considerations on Andean colonial mural painting. In the last two ensuing decades, scholars have written some interesting articles to understand better this important artistic heritage, thus bringing new perspectives as well as unveiling unknown groups of mural paintings. However, no one had undertaken the task of synthesizing the scholarship’s progress on the topic and make it available to a wider audience. Ananda Cohen ... Read More

Morello’s background and training have prepared him to analyze the life of Catholics during Argentina’s la guerra sucia or “dirty war” (1976–83). The Argentine military seized power ostensibly to save the nation from the threat of leftist insurgents. During the self-proclaimed Process of National Reorganization, the military regime and associated paramilitary groups murdered or “disappeared” 30,000 Argentines. Military officials actually boasted of plans to kill 50,000 citizens. The regime’s barbarism was such that victims were apprehended, tortured, and then dropped, while still alive, from aircraft into the frigid South Atlantic. ... Read More

  • Silence dir. by Martin Scorsese (review)
    • Abstract: What is the value of the Scorsese film, Silence, to historians? It faithfully follows Shusaku Endo’s original novel (1966). Historians who seek factual accuracy in the novel may marvel at Endo’s knowledge of the historical sources if they can overlook some obvious discrepancies. If they cannot, they should simply turn to scholarly works such as George Elison’s Deus Destroyed (1991) on Japanese persecution, apostasy, and anti-Christian propaganda literature. The value of Silence resides in the theological/missiological questions, which Endo asked during the Vatican II era. Space does not permit a detailed analysis of these, but it is sufficient to state here that the image of a triumphant Christ from the Baroque ... Read More
