  • Books of Martyrs: Example and Imitation in Europe and Japan,
           1597–1650
    • Abstract: Liam Matthew Brockey(Photo credit: Kurt Stepnitz, Michigan State University)Catholics in the United States have recently been reminded of the ancient cult of martyrs by news stories from two unlikely places, Oklahoma and Hollywood: Oklahoma because Father Stanley Rother's status as a martyr was recently announced by the Vatican.1 In early December 2016, Pope Francis officially recognized that this priest from the archdiocese of Oklahoma City was murdered in Guatemala in 1981 "in odium fidei" [in hatred of the faith]. Rother thus entered the long list of martyred men and women that the Church has kept for nearly two thousand years; his distinction is to be the first American citizen added to that roll. But if this ... Read More

  • Bernardino da Feltre's Vision of Social and Economic Justice
    • Abstract: Vel etiam dicitur inequitatis, idest non equitatis, qui non est eque divisa . . .1Recent historiography on the medieval roots of modern economic thought and the forms of capital-driven economies has focused on the unique and formative role played by thinkers and preachers of the Franciscan order in the development of nascent economic theory. Pioneering work by Odd Langholm, for example, over the past four and a half decades—especially his magisterial tome Economics in the Medieval Schools, which devotes no fewer than seven chapters to Franciscan writers—has helped to situate the contributions of medieval Franciscans to this evolving discussion within the context of Parisian scholasticism in the High Middle Ages.2 ...

  • Crossing Cultures: The Mental World and Social Subversion of St. John
           Baptist de La Salle
    • Abstract: When recalling the iconography of John Baptist de La Salle (1651–1719), the figure of the saint in an inspirational pose accompanied by two young students comes immediately to mind. The best-known sculptural example is surely Cesare Aureli's statue of the saint, created in 1903 and located in the upper reaches of the nave of Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome (Figure 1). This public image reflects de La Salle's contribution to education as the patron saint of teachers and founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (Fratres Scholarum Christianarum or F.S.C.), the purpose of which was to provide gratuitous schooling for the sons of artisans and the poor in seventeenth-century France. While some of the trials and ... Read More

  • Pietro Tamburini's Jansenist Legacy at the Irish College in Rome and His
           Influence on the Irish Church
    • Abstract: The life of Italian theologian Pietro Tamburini (Figure 1) has attracted the interest of historians and theologians alike.1 Much of his personal correspondence has been collected and published, and his life, especially after 1778 with his return to Lombardy, has been closely scrutinized.2 But despite the rather extensive historiography on this figure, his six-year appointment in Rome (1772–78) at the Irish College as prefect of studies remains unexamined. Among Irish historians the main question about this period has concerned the degree of theological influence Tamburini exerted while at the College. The consensus seems to be that his influence was minimal. Former Irish College rector and historian Michael ... Read More

  • Ignatian Radicalism: The Influence of Jesuit Spirituality on Dorothy Day
    • Abstract: In the December 1951 issue of the Catholic Worker newspaper, Dorothy Day (1897–1980) included an obituary for a French-Canadian Jesuit named Onesimus Lacouture (1881–1951), the originator of "the retreat" that she had enthusiastically embraced a decade earlier and which she would later memorialize in her autobiography, The Long Loneliness. Noting that Lacouture had been one of twenty-one children in his family—his father had married twice—Day wrote,Doesn't that sound like the beginning of the life of a saint' Peter Maurin was one of twenty-three children. These two men who had the most influence on my life (and so in a way on the life of the Catholic Worker) were both French peasants, of France and French Canada. ... Read More

  • Jesuit Pedagogy, 1540–1616: A Reader ed. by Cristiano Casalini and
           Claude Pavur (review)
    • Abstract: The editors of this volume hope it is the first in a series of volumes based on the Monumenta paedagogica, seven volumes in the Monumenta historica Societatis Iesu. This book begins with a table of contents, a timetable of early Jesuit education up to 1613, a list of nine pictures, and ends with an excellent index.The volume includes an excellent Introduction (pp. 1–33) and thirty documents, each a separate chapter. Each chapter has an introduction almost a page long, which provides readers with information about the topic and its author. The first seven chapters were written in Spanish, all by St. Ignatius of Loyola or his close associates from 1547 until his death in 1556. Thereafter twelve chapters were written ... Read More

  • The Shamrock and the Cross: Irish American Novelists Shape American
           Catholicism by Eileen P. Sullivan (review)
    • Abstract: This book studies popular fiction written by and for Irish Catholic immigrants to the United States in the mid-nineteenth century. To illustrate, Sullivan analyzes the works of the seven most important Irish Catholic novelists writing between 1850 and 1873: Fathers John Roddan, John Boyce, and Hugh Quigley; and professional writers Mary Anne Sadlier, Charles James Cannon, Peter McCorry, and John McElgun. Their selection is based on the frequency of citations, serializations, and reviews in Catholic and American literature publications past and present, as well as their recognition by Charles Fanning in his seminal literary histories, Exiles of Erin and The Irish Voice in America. These novels are a repository of ... Read More

  • Bach's Major Vocal Works: Music, Drama, Liturgy by Markus Rathey (review)
    • Abstract: Markus Rathey (Yale University) offers the nonspecialist a short yet instructive guide to the major vocal works of Johann Sebastian Bach. He devotes chapters to the Christmas Oratorio, St. John Passion, St. Matthew Passion, and B Minor Mass as well as the lesser-studied Magnificat and oratorios for Easter and Ascension. Bach composed all of these as cantor of the St. Thomas School and city music director in Leipzig, a post he took up in 1723 and held until his death in 1750. The shorter cantatas, which Bach also composed and regularly performed during these years, receive only occasional mention.Rathey makes insightful remarks and offers fresh perspectives, even if the book never attempts to be comprehensive or ...

  • María de Molina, Queen and Regent. Life and Rule in Castile-León,
           1259–1321 by Paulette Lynn Pepin (review)
    • Abstract: It is increasingly recognized how women played a key role in medieval societies. María de Molina is certainly one of the most remarkable queens from the Castilian medieval period, and a great example to get into medieval queenship. That is what Professor Paulette L. Pepin seeks to offer, as she finds that the importance of Queen María has not entailed an appropiate echo in contemporary scholarship, and she had lacked an English biography so far.The author organizes the book not just following a chronological order, but observing the different roles Queen María played during the consecutive rules of her husband, her son, and her grandson, firstly as queen-consort, and secondly as dowager queen and regent. Chapter 1 ... Read More

  • The Register of Edward Story, Bishop of Chichester, 1478–1503 ed. by
           Janet H. Stevenson (review)
    • Abstract: Despite recent diversification in its publications, the Canterbury and York Society remains best known for its editions and calendars of medieval English episcopal registers. This volume offers a careful and useful calendar of one such compilation, as the first from Chichester diocese to appear in this series (but not the first to be published).Edward Story's episcopate, from 1478 to 1503, was not notably dramatic, and the bishop himself attracts little historiographical attention. His register, which survives in two volumes, is perhaps characteristic of the later pre-Reformation registers, revealing an administration which could function almost without requiring direct input from its formal head. In the contents ... Read More

  • Gratian the Theologian by John C. Wei (review)
    • Abstract: One of the most significant texts of the twelfth century is Gratian's Decretum, or Concordantia discordantium canonum. Gratian has long been hailed as the "father" of medieval canon law, but, despite his importance, little is known about Gratian himself. The Decretum remains the only reliable source for Gratian's background, interests, and goals. Since Anders Winroth's discovery of a first recension, scholars have been able to explore more clearly what Gratian's intentions were in composing his text, what sources he did or did not use, and how his thought may have changed over time. These discoveries, however, have also opened other questions currently debated in the literature. John Wei's Gratian the Theologian ... Read More

  • Popes and Jews: 1095–1291 by Rebecca Rist (review)
    • Abstract: Rebecca Rist has produced a valuable addition to current research on the relationship between the papacy and the Jews in the High Middle Ages (Popes and Jews: 1095–1291). Her previous publications have explored crusading, the medieval papacy, and papal-Jewish relations in narrower contexts; however, this time she delves deeply into the complexity of the relationship between the papacy, in particular, and the Jews, and the paradox of protection (particularly in Rome) and toleration, while also restricting Jewish life. The two-century period on which she focuses spanned a transformational era for European Jews of increasing suspicion, false accusations, and horrific persecution of individuals and whole communities. ...

  • Fordham: A History of the Jesuit University of New York: 1841–2003 by
           Thomas J. Shelley (review)
    • Abstract: Monsignor Thomas Shelley's Fordham: A History of the Jesuit University of New York stands out from a short list of other books about the university for its concentration on the members of the Society of Jesus. It was a small group of Jesuits who answered the call of New York Archbishop John Hughes in 1846, soon after his 1841 founding of a small college and seminary at Rose Hill in the Bronx, not yet part of New York City. It was then called St. John's College. Hughes was fighting anti-Catholicism in the public schools and worked assiduously to expand Catholic education. He wanted a college, but was not able to manage it, so an agreement was made to bring in a group of French Jesuits ready to leave their prior post ... Read More

  • Vives y Moro. La amistad en tiempos difíciles by Enrique García
           Hernán (review)
    • Abstract: There were many affinities between these two great intellectual figures of the Renaissance: their wide learning, their educational ideals, their holiness of life, but they were very different in temperament, as García Hernán notes on the opening page, the one, More, alegre y entretenido (cheerful and entertaining), the other quejoso y sufridor (querulous and long-suffering). They differed very much in civil status as well, More a powerful statesman and a man of considerable wealth, Vives an outsider and a struggling scholar. For this reason I do not quite agree with the author's summation that they complemented each other in such a way that in Vives we find More and in More Vives. They shared an interest in the ...

  • Reformations: The Early Modern World, 1450–1650 by Carlos M. N. Eire
           (review)
    • Abstract: This is a not very brief history of reformation. But as with that earlier work, A Very Brief History of Eternity (Princeton University Press, 2010), Eire has produced a volume with radiant prose sure to garner critical acclaim. He has constructed the book for an educated, nonspecialist audience, with minimal footnotes, focusing the seventy-three page bibliography wholly on twentieth century and later works in English. He may have intended the tome for an undergraduate audience of history majors. Slipping it into a backpack, however, will be no small feat. However, given the goals Eire set out, the girth and heft seem perfectly reasonable. Covering two hundred tumultuous years, Eire has generated four books in one. ... Read More

  • Catholicism, Identity and Politics in the Age of Enlightenment: The Life
           and Career of Sir Thomas Gascoigne, 1745–1810 by Alexander Lock (review)
           
    • Abstract: Alexander Lock's Catholicism, Identity and Politics in the Age of Enlightenment is a study of one particular English Catholic—Sir Thomas Gascoigne (1745–1810)—and how he can be seen as an example of the intersections of the Enlightenment and English Catholicism in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Lock, the Curator of Modern Historical Manuscripts at the British Library, makes interesting contributions in this work to two important areas of recent historiography—the construction and manifestation of English Catholicism at a time during which the penal laws were still in place and of a distinct English national identity. It is an attractive book with a wonderful bibliography. In some ways, it ... Read More

  • Theology and the University in Nineteenth-Century Germany by Zachary

    • Abstract: This carefully researched book analyzes the origins and trajectory of the genre of "theological encyclopedia" as it was articulated by several key German-Protestant university professors between the 1790s and the middle of the nineteenth century. Written in an engaging, clear manner, the book examines classic early-modern rationales for the scholarly (wissenschaftlich) character of university theology, especially its proper methods and parameters, and the various ways in which German Protestant theologians organized its diverse subfields into a unified whole. Nothing seems left untouched here: published texts, faculty manuals, manuscripts, lecture notes, correspondence, records of publishing houses. The book thus ... Read More

    • Abstract: The title of this fine monograph may obscure for nonspecialists its subject's larger historical significance. No less than the origins of higher education in Russia, or college-level training in theology, philosophy, science, and the humanities, are being examined here. Put otherwise, the book recounts in detail the arrival in late seventeenth-century Russia of one major element of post-Renaissance, post-Reformation European high culture, a development that worked eventually to bring Russia, with often spectacular results, into the modern intellectual mainstream. It is a story that has its parallels in the contemporaneous efforts to bring early modern European learning and values to the eastern Mediterranean world ... Read More

In them, Quigley found a scrapbook and correspondence between two prominent Philadelphians from the Civil War era—one, the Reverend Benjamin Dorr who was the rector at the prestigious Christ Church, and the other, his son Captain William White Dorr, of the celebrated 121st Pennsylvania Volunteers, who fought with the Army of the Potomac in many of its key battles before dying while advancing on a rebel line at Spotsylvania Court House in 1864.

Although it benefited from a sound critical edition and annotated French translation, both by André-Jean Festugière, the Historia Monachorum in Aegypto (= HM), i.e., the "Inquiry on the Monks of Egypt," has waited long before reaping its fair share of attention. To a considerable extent, this has been achieved by the monograph under review, which redresses the balance on behalf of this composite and anonymously transmitted collection of monastic stories of the ...

  • Elizabethan Espionage: Plotters and Spies in the Struggle between
           Catholicism and the Crown by Patrick H. Martin (review)
    • Abstract: Elizabeth Espionage: Plotters and Spies in the Struggle between Catholicism and the Crown aims to defend the Catholics of Elizabethan England from the charge of terrorism. Its main argument is that English Catholics were more the victims than the terrorists, during what Martin calls "the struggle over England's religious identity" during the late sixteenth century. He aims to showcase this by re-examining the activities of late Elizabethan spies in a search for their underlying motives, in contrast to much scholarly study which consistently portrays spies as nothing more than traitors.Martin focuses especially on two spies who worked for opposite sides: George Gifford and William Sterrell. Martin portrays Gifford ... Read More

  • Irish Voices from the Spanish Inquisition: Migrants, Converts and Brokers

    • Abstract: Thomas O'Connor's last book can be considered the ideal continuation of a journey that began in 2008 with the publication of his Irish Jansenists, 1600–1670. Based on an impressive amount of European, Irish, and Mexican sources, this new book aims to provide a groundbreaking analysis of the activities and role played by the Irish migrants in Spain and in the Spanish colonies in America during the early modern period. By examining the three most influential and represented groups of Irish migrants—the clerics, the merchants, and the soldiers—within Spanish society, the author examines their thorny relations with the Spanish Inquisition.In the first part of the book, O'Connor sets the agenda by providing a clear ...

           X (1914-2014), Città del Vaticano, 12 giugno 2014 ed. by Roberto Regoli

Gianpaolo Romanato, "Pio X: Bilancio e prospettive," who for decades has been engaged in biographical study of Giovanni Sarto, goes on to explain the fortunes and misfortunes of his fame, conducting extensive research on the historiography of the papacy, although with predominant attention to that in Italian. He also outlines Pius X's reform initiatives.Carlo Pioppi underlines the spiritual dimension, next to the pastoral dimension ("Principi e orientamenti pastorali di San Pio X," pp. 34–35). Definitely Pius X was convinced that "restoration in Christ"—the goal of his pontificate—could have been realized with a more fervent spirituality of the clergy and Catholic ... Read More

  • Making Martyrs East & West: Canonization in the Catholic and Russian
           Orthodox Churches by Cathy Caridi (review)
    • Abstract: Cathy Caridi's study consists of four chapters on martyr-making in the East and the West. The first deals with the united church, the second with the Russian church from the Christianization in 988 up to our time, the third with the Catholic Church from the great schism, and the last chapter with a comparison of canonization processes in East and West.Canonization of martyrs would at first glance seem to be a strictly historical theme, but it is quite the opposite; for example, the canonization of 2000 new martyrs in Russia in the beginning of this century shows the topicality of this phenomenon.The study is asymmetric in construction; the Catholic Church is discussed and compared to the Russian Orthodox tradition ...

In the access it gives to many of those papers, this edited collection will prove helpful to a wide range of scholars of early modern Catholicism.As Francis Young's introduction to the volume points out, the Rookwoods of Coldham Hall in Stanningfield, Suffolk, were a remarkable family who managed to maintain their Catholicism in spite of contemporary penal legislation and an association with treason that started with Ambrose Rookwood's involvement with the Gunpowder Plot in 1605, and was revived with his great-grandson's embroilment with an attempt on the ...

But for several decades it has come under increasing critical scrutiny, notably by historians working to delineate alternative, "religious" Enlightenments that afford religion a positive role in the genealogy of modernity.This collection of essays, drawn from a 2012 conference at Ohio University and introduced by co-editor William J. Bulman, advances that critical project. Lamenting that none of the religious and other recent scholarly alternatives to the rigidly ... Read More

  • The Gnostic New Age: How a Countercultural Spirituality Revolutionized

    • Abstract: In The Gnostic New Age April DeConick offers an interpretation of "Gnosticism" as a distinctive "countercultural spirituality" that has manifested itself in numerous incarnations from antiquity to the modern age. The book's eleven chapters include discussions of many specific historical figures, texts, or movements—e.g., the Greco–Egyptian Hermetic literature; so-called "Sethian" sources; Simon Magus; Naassenes; Ophians; Peratics; Justin "the Gnostic"; Valentinus and Valentinians; Manichaeans; "Jeuians" (from the Books of Jeu) and the Pistis Sophia; and Mandaeans. Each of these has been classified as "gnostic" by at least some scholars. DeConick's definition of gnosticism is surely among the most expansive ... Read More

  • The Catholic Enlightenment: The Forgotten History of a Global Movement by

    • Abstract: Of the making of "Enlightenments" there is no end, and it seems only fair that the Catholic Church should have its own niche patent, however much that association might have unsettled Voltaire and other leading philosophes. But, as Ulrich L. Lehner argues in his wide-ranging study, it is time to (re)state the exaggerated disconnection between infâme and lumières and show how, in many areas of its life, in its balance of faith and reason, in its work with state reformers, Catholicism partook of what most scholars would deem characteristics of the moderate Enlightenment. Professor Lehner is not the first historian to point this out. He treads in the steps of David Sorkin, Christopher M. S. Johns, Michael Printy, and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Porphyry became bishop of Gaza in the late fourth century. Because the cult of the local deity Marnas still dominated the city, initially he and his small congregation faced harassment. Porphyry sent Mark, one of his deacons, to Constantinople, where John Chrysostom helped to acquire an imperial letter ordering the closure of the temples at Gaza. A few years later Porphyry himself traveled to Constantinople. This time Eudoxia, wife of the emperor Arcadius, arranged to send imperial officials and soldiers to enforce a new edict, and she also contributed funds and marble columns for the construction of a church. After Porphyry's return, the great temple of Marnas was burned. Five years later Porphyry presided at the ... Read More

Within this corpus, much of it francophone, Mary Dunn's translation of selected letters by the mission's superior stands out on two levels: first, in its clear and important goal of bringing alive the early French history in the New World for an English-speaking public; second, the collection is remarkable for its personal rather than hagio-graphic treatment of this monumental figure of New France. Indeed, Dunn's focus is the thirty-year exchange between a mother who abandoned her son at the age of eleven to enter the religious life and the man he has become.In any ... Read More

Admittedly, the scope of this investigation is ambitious, for Moran does not confine himself to O'Connor's oeuvre in its inspiration and creation; rather, he endeavors to seat O'Connor's cultural and literary legacy within a complex matrix of how the "author's work, personality, and even image are marketed, packaged, presented, adapted, and received" (p. 2).O'Connor's reputation, he reminds, can be understood not simply as a phenomenon resulting from her talent alone but also "as the result of a ...

This first is communitarian, roughly the language and tropes of civil religion, which is intended to "help bring the American people closer together" (p. xiii). The second use of religious rhetoric is what the author calls coalitional, when a president aspires "to persuade just enough people with his words in order to achieve his political objective" (p. xiii). The first use unites; the second divides.O'Connell is more interested in the second use of presidential rhetoric: coalitional. He devises criteria to determine when a president employs coalitional rhetoric ... Read More

    • Abstract: Daniel Williams positions his political and intellectual history of the pro-life movement as a corrective to a dominant narrative that there was no organized opposition to elective abortion prior to the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Williams's treatment does not evidence that he is deeply read in the history of gender and sexuality that usually serves as background for work on these issues. Nonetheless, he rightly and convincingly argues that historians of abortion and reproductive politics in the U.S. have not paid significant attention to the activists who resisted legalization. As a result, the book will be important to historians working to achieve a full understanding of the ongoing legislative controversies ... Read More

  • The World's Oldest Church: Bible, Art, and Ritual at Dura-Europos, Syria

The book's chapters revisit the famous paintings of the baptistery in turn. Peppard wants his audience "to imagine early Christian initiation at the nexus of Bible, art, and ritual" (p. 211)—the subtitle that is applied heavily throughout (see pp. 30, 32, 37, 45, 84, 91, 108, 111, 202, 212; cf. p. 140). He warns against viewing the paintings as "allegorical treasures unlocked by one hermeneutical key—the right biblical text" (p. 31) ... Read More

           Harkins (review)
    • Abstract: Following a preface by Hugh Feiss, acknowledgments from the editors, and the list of general abbreviations that precedes every volume of this series, the present publication opens with a "General Introduction" written by Frans van Liere and Franklin T. Harkins (pp. 25–50). As a whole, the authors and their writings, which have been chosen to illustrate what could be understood by exegetical "practice," have been arranged in seven thematic groups: "Literal Exegesis" (Hugh of St. Victor); "Littera and Historia" (Hugh, Richard, Andrew of St. Victor, as well as Peter Comestor); "The Spiritual Sense in Exegesis and Theology" (Richard of St. Victor); "From Exegesis to Theology" (Robert of Melun); "Hebraica Veritas, Jews ...

  • Black Elk: The Life of an American Visionary by Joe Jackson (review)
    • Abstract: This biography addresses the life of a Lakota (Sioux) holy man who gained admirers worldwide through John Neihardt's Black Elk Speaks (1972). His fuller identity was revealed in Black Elk: Holy Man of the Oglala (1993) and Nicholas Black Elk: Medicine Man, Missionary, Mystic (2009). Jackson's primary focus is on the same period that Neihardt addressed. He devotes 347 pages to the man's first twenty-five years, while giving just 118 pages to his last sixty. Both factual and fictional in its portrayal of the holy man, this work is rich in speculation—with Jackson even proposing the name of a never-before-identified soldier that Black Elk may have killed at the battle of Little Bighorn.Historical events are fleshed ...

  • The Jesuits and Globalization: Historical Legacies and Contemporary
           Challenges ed. by Thomas Banchoff and José Casanova (review)
    • Abstract: This volume of essays could not be more timely for a political moment when many countries seem poised to resurrect nationalism. It offers "Lessons for Today" (p. 280) centered on the question: "Is the experience of Jesuits as global missionaries and educators for almost five centuries relevant to the challenges we face today . . . [in] an increasingly multipolar and interconnected world'" (p. vii). The answer is a resounding and inspiring yes. The seven eminent Jesuits and five senior scholars who convened four workshops to refine these essays have produced an impressively researched catalogue of how Jesuits have responded and contributed to the phenomenon of globalization over time. While the book features ... Read More

  • The Ministry of the Printed Word: Scholar-Priests of the Twentieth Century
           ed. by John Broadley and Peter Phillips (review)
    • Abstract: This elegantly published and weighty (almost three pounds) book recounts the intellectual and spiritual contributions of eleven English scholar priests, one of whom became a bishop (Bernard Ward) and another a cardinal (Aidan Gasquet). Four were Jesuits (George Tyrrell, John Hungerford Pollen, Herbert Thurston, and Frederick Copleston); two were Benedictines (David Knowles and Christopher Butler, plus Gasquet). One was a parish priest (Adrian Fortescue), and two clerical scholars (Philip Hughes and Ronald Knox).Each priest is given a separate and most readable chapter, with a general introduction by Broadley that is significantly entitled "The 'Eighth Sacrament' in the Life of a Priest." No Dominicans are ... Read More

  • The Making of Assisi: The Pope, the Franciscans, and the Painting of the
           Basilica by Donal Cooper and Janet Robson (review)
    • Abstract: Specialist scholars, interested students, and passionate readers alike will warmly welcome the publication of this handsomely illustrated, elegantly written, and excellently researched book. As the frescoes of Assisi are amongst the most important (and most studied) Italian artworks of all times, the risk of producing yet another monograph on the subject was extremely high. Cooper and Robson, however, take a fresh perspective, focusing on patronage and iconography and wisely leave aside the exhausted attribution debate over the authorship of the paintings. The approach itself is not new: indeed it is openly indebted to the seminal studies of Alistair Smart and Gerhard Ruf (as well as to the more recent work of ... Read More

  • Pie XI: Un Pape contre le Nazisme' L'encyclique Mit brennender Sorge
           (14 mars 1937) ed. by Fabrice Bouthillon and Marie Levant (review)
    • Abstract: Pope Pius XI (Achille Ratti), who reigned from 1922 to 1939, has not been intensively studied, even though the files in the Vatican Archives for his pontificate were opened several years ago. This is in contrast to the heated debates about the wartime policies of his successor, Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli), whose papers are still not open for research. We should therefore be grateful to a group of French scholars, based at the University of Western Brittany, for organizing this conference in June, 2015. Their focus is on the most sensational event in the latter part of Pius XI's reign, namely the publication of the papal encyclical, Mit brennender Sorge, which was smuggled into Germany, secretly printed and ...

  • Constantine and the Cities: Imperial Authority and Civic Politics by Noel
           Lenski (review)
    • Abstract: The emperor Constantine continues to engender productive debate among historians of the later Roman Empire. Noel Lenski's outstanding new study will be required reading for scholars working on Constantine, late Roman imperial administration, civic identity in the provinces, and the rise of bishops as civic leaders in the fourth century.In contrast to recent approaches that have downplayed the degree to which Christianity was the driving force behind Constantine's policies, Lenski returns to a more traditional view. What is distinctive about Lenski's approach, however, is his reliance on "secular" evidence, especially laws, to establish Constantine's Christian credentials.The heart of Lenski's study is his analysis ...

  • Notes and Comments
    • Abstract: At a consistory held on April 20, 2017, Pope Francis obtained the consent of the cardinals for the canonization of sibling shepherds Francisco de Jesus Marto (1908–19) and Jacinta de Jesus Marto (1910–20) in a ceremony that took place in Fatima on May 13, 2017. Consent was also given for the canonizations on October 15, 2017, of the Brazilian priests Andrea Soveral (1572–1645) and Ambrogio Francesco Ferro, the layman Mateus Moreira, and twenty-seven companions massacred for the faith in 1645 by Dutch and indigenous Calvinists; of the converted "Child Martyrs of Tlaxcala," Cristóbal (1514/15–27), killed for his faith by his pagan father, and Antonio and Juan (both 1516/17–29), killed for desecrating pagan idols; of ...
