  • Sacraments for the Faithful of the New World, Jews, and Eastern-Rite
           
    • Abstract: The origin of the relationship between sacramental matters and the papal magisterial function predates the modern age and is rooted in the long tradition of the Church. In the sixteenth century, just when European Catholicism was experiencing global expansion, Protestant criticism put the validity of the sacraments on trial. Faced with this challenge, the Council of Trent’s decrees placed the sacraments at the junction between discipline and doctrine. This also would affect sacramental practice in the New World: the inquisition’s rigor, a desire to standardize differences, as well as to create a framework open to limited self-regulation—all revolved around sacramental issues. The Catholic desire for ... Read More

  • The First Vatican Council, Archbishop Henry Manning, and Papal
           Infallibility
    • Abstract: The history of the First Vatican Council is presented frequently as a clash between the radical or absolute ultramontanists and the minority bishops who were able to thwart the majority from defining a recent and extreme doctrine of papal infallibility. It is now commonplace to list, as the most noted “radical” or “extreme” ultramontanists, theologians such as Louis Veuillot (1813–83); William G. Ward (1812–82); and Henry Edward Manning, archbishop and later cardinal of Westminster (1808–92; see figure 1). Although perhaps Ward and Veuillot can be labeled extreme ultramontanists, this article will show that Manning is more accurately described as holding a “moderate” view of infallibility similar to the one ...

  • A Church of Two Steeples: Catholicism, Labor, and Ethnicity in Industrial
           New England, 1869–90
    • Abstract: Addressing his American peers in 1929, famed Canadian historian Arthur Lower reflected on the past, present, and future of New England’s Franco-American community. That community, he found, was driven by the missionary zeal encapsulated in the old formula Gesta Dei per Francos (the deeds of God through the French) and by the certainty that it would “come out on top” in the struggle of cultures.1 Struggle there certainly was, in the pursuit of cultural preservation in a foreign, seemingly hostile environment. Yet it is striking that in the time since Lower’s piece appeared, there have been few reassessments of the relationship of French Canadian immigrants to the host society in late-nineteenth-century New ...

  • Who Bombed the Vatican?: The Argentinean Connection
    • Abstract: At 8:10 pm on the evening of November 5, 1943, a small, unidentified, low-flying aircraft, which had circled the area for some time beforehand, dropped five bombs on the 110-acre territory of Vatican City and disappeared into the night. At the same moment a squadron of Allied aircraft, which earlier had taken part in an extensive bombing raid on the Adriatic coast of Italy between Ancona and Pescara, was passing over Rome and returning to its airbase in North Africa.1 Sir D’Arcy Osborne, the British minister to the Holy See who had taken refuge in the neutral territory of Vatican City when Italy declared war on England (see figure 1), was in the Santa Marta building next to the Vatican City wall ...

  • The Pope and Mussolini: The Secret History of Pius XI and the Rise of
           Fascism in Europe by David I. Kertzer (review)
    • Abstract: The Pope and Mussolini examines the relationship between the Holy See and the Italian Fascist government, primarily through the lens of their respective leaders, Pope Pius XI and Benito Mussolini. In 1907 the fifty-year-old Achille Ratti, the future Pius XI, took on the position of prefect of Milan’s Ambrosian Library. Four years later, the service and skills he displayed in this position led Pope Benedict XV to name Ratti prefect of the Vatican Library. Immediately following World War I, Benedict called on Ratti again to serve as apostolic visitor to the newly constituted Polish government. By 1921, Ratti had demonstrated sufficient leadership skills that Benedict recalled him to Italy and named him ... Read More

  • Reforming Reform: Steven Vanderputten’s Monastic Histories
    • Abstract: Reform is rarely defined. Nevertheless, it was an important concept to Latin Church Fathers, particularly to St. Augustine, whose fascination with the early chapters of Genesis led him to meditate on how, after the fall, human beings necessarily needed to be reformed—an act that, thanks to the Incarnation, would be a reformatio ad melius. That patristic tradition was famously analyzed at the time of the Second Vatican Council in Gerhart Ladner’s The Idea of Reform, which presented reform as a leitmotif of ecclesiastical history, or “the free, intentional and ever perfectible, multiple, prolonged and ever repeated efforts by man to reassert and augment values pre-existent in the spiritual-material compound of ...

  • The Many Faces of Christ: The Thousand-Year Story of the Survival and
           Influence of the Lost Gospels by Philip Jenkins (review)
    • Abstract: Even readers with a casual interest in Christian apocrypha know the familiar myth of the “lost gospels”—that a developing Orthodox Church created a canon that served their theological and political interests, declared all other texts about the early church “apocryphal,” and effectively suppressed the literature until its rediscovery in the past few centuries. Jenkins aims to correct this “questionable historical narrative” (p. 6) by demonstrating instead that apocryphal texts continued to be valued and employed—even created—by the Church long after efforts to close the canon in the fourth century. Philip Jenkins focuses on what he calls the “long middle” of Christian history, between 400 and 1500 ... Read More

  • The Jesuit Suppression in Global Context: Causes, Events, and Consequences
           ed. by Jeffrey D. Burson, Jonathan Wright (review)
    • Abstract: At first glance, this book appears to be a publication stemming from a conference, yet it is not. Rather, the editors explain in the book’s first pages that it is fruit of an initiative that experienced delays. The volume certainly enters in the dynamic of two complementary movements coexisting in the Jesuit historiography since the second half of the last century. On the one hand, the time when only the members of the order (but also its enemies) were protagonists of the writing of its history is definitively over; more and more authors are examining it, as shown by the rich bibliography of Jesuit-related topics published each year (c. 1500–2000 titles most recently). On the other hand, only very few ... Read More

  • Christian Homes: Religion, Family, and Domesticity in the Nineteenth and
           Twentieth Centuries ed. by Tine Van Osselaer, Patrick Pasture (review)
    • Abstract: Historians of women have subjected the concepts of domesticity and separate spheres to critical analysis for many years, but in this collection of essays emerging from a project at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium, historians of religion “re-address the omnipresence of this feminine archetype” (p. 7). The essays in Christian Homes mostly conclude that domesticity is a useful tool to work with— and to work against. The nine authors in the collection cover considerable geographical breadth—from the United States through Great Britain, Western Europe (especially France), and Scandinavia. Some contributions focus on prescriptive sources about religion and domestic life (notably Bernhard Schneider’s ... Read More

  • The Ancient Martyrdom Accounts of Peter and Paul by David L. Eastman
           (review)
    • Abstract: David L. Eastman has filled a gap in scholarship by collecting many of the ancient martyrdom accounts of Ss. Peter and Paul into a single sourcebook. The sourcebook includes fifteen martyrdom accounts from the second to seventh centuries, plus thirty references from patristic authors of the first six centuries. Each martyrdom account is presented with an historical introduction, an edition of its text in Greek, Latin, or Syriac, and an annotated English translation. As part of the Society of Biblical Literature series on writings from the Greco-Roman world, The Ancient Martyrdom Accounts of Peter and Paul makes these primary sources accessible to a broad readership, with the most recent and sometimes ...

  • Treasure in Heaven: The Holy Poor in Early Christianity by Peter R. L.
           Brown (review)
    • Abstract: Peter Brown has been worrying about early Christian poverty for quite some time. Treasure in Heaven is the third installment in a trilogy encompassing Poverty and Leadership in the Later Roman Empire (Hanover, NH, 2002) and Through the Eye of a Needle (Princeton, 2012). In that sense, it is something of a prequel. Whereas those first two volumes tracked Christian ideas, practices, and debates regarding wealth, charity, and holy authority from the fourth to the sixth centuries, Treasure in Heaven traces those same charged issues back to the first Christian communities. At the same time—and in line with a broader trend in late-ancient studies that Brown himself has helped to stimulate—it relocates their ... Read More

  • Pilgerwege ins “Heilige Land”: Beiträge zur Religionsgeografie der

    • Abstract: This little volume is the result of a symposium on early Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land, organized in 2009 at the Universität Hohenheim in Stuttgart. The focus of the conference (and of these proceedings) was on the beginnings of Christian pilgrimage to Palestine in the fourth century and the early pilgrimage accounts in relation to changing theological perceptions with regard to religious geography and travel to sites of Christian memory. The volume contains six contributions (all in German) of different length and varying scholarly significance. The volume opens with a fairly superficial contribution by Marion Giebel about the beginnings of pilgrimage to Palestine starting with ... Read More

  • The Apocalypse in the Early Middle Ages by James T. Palmer (review)
    • Abstract: James T. Palmer’s new book is a carefully presented, groundbreaking study of apocalyptic thinking that successfully cuts through the often impenetrable scholarly debates over the role of End-Time prophecies in the early Middle Ages. Palmer’s learned yet highly readable book introduces a new understanding of the function of eschatology and End-Time prophecy that will change the way we think about this central aspect of the medieval past. The book is divided into seven chapters that work chronologically from the waning of the Roman Empire through the early-eleventh century, focusing on essential periods during which the destiny of the world, the Christian Roman Empire metonymically speaking, was imagined in ...

  • Hincmar of Rheims: Life and Work ed. by Rachel Stone, Charles West
           (review)
    • Abstract: This volume gathers fourteen articles that were presented as papers at the Leeds International Medieval Congress of 2012 in sessions about the illustrious archbishop Hincmar of Rheims (†882). It presents many different Hincmars such as the adviser to kings, the expert in canon law, the “manager” of an important archdiocese, the intellectual and prolific author of a varied œuvre, and the ecclesiastical and political authority constantly entangled in disputes and debates. The compact articles present single cases, and it is only when the reader starts to add them up that Hincmar’s “life and work” (perhaps better described as “troubles and stress”) starts to unfold. As Rachel Stone explains in her ... Read More

  • Meister Eckhart: Philosopher of Christianity by Kurt Flasch (review)
    • Abstract: This important intellectual biography of Meister Eckhart (c. 1260–1328?) represents the culmination of Kurt Flasch’s sixty-year involvement with Eckhart’s thought. Comprehensive, richly learned, and trenchantly argued, it is also highly polemical. Flasch, an eminent historian of medieval thought, settles accounts with various nineteenth- and twentieth-century Eckhart scholars. Special targets are those who think the Meister a mystic, or—worse—see in his work some “unrestrained Faustian-Nordic drive for depth” (p. 164). All wrong, Flasch argues. The basis for reading Eckhart correctly has been available since the publication of his more difficult Latin works, rediscovered well after the more ... Read More

  • From She-Wolf to Martyr: The Reign and Disputed Reputation of Johanna I of
           Naples by Elizabeth Casteen (review)
    • Abstract: Johanna I of Naples (r. 1343–82) is one of medieval Europe’s infrequent queens regnant, women who inherited a throne in their own right. Her reign presents a paradox: at nearly forty years, it represents an obvious case of successful female rule. Yet it was also the subject of scurrilous gossip among contemporaries who accused her of avarice, insatiable lust, and even the murder of her first husband (Andrew of Hungary). That depiction of Johanna has continued to dominate scholarly discourse about her, and Casteen’s book offers an important corrective. As Casteen explains at the outset, “This is not a biography of a woman but of a reputation” (p. 26). Although she marshals an impressive array of ... Read More

  • Le schisme et la pourpre: Le cardinal Pierre d’Ailly, homme de science
           et de foi by Hélène Millet, Monique Maillard-Luypaert (review)
    • Abstract: Theologian, royal chaplain, university leader, bishop, and cardinal, Pierre d’Ailly (1350–1420) led a life that intersected with the major crises of his day: the Hundred Years’ War; the conflict between Burgundians and Armagnacs; and, above all, the Great Schism. And yet, his rich biography has received far less attention than various aspects of his thought. The last thorough treatment of d’Ailly’s life formed part of Bernard Guenée’s Entre l’Église et l’État (Paris, 1987; Chicago, 1991); for freestanding biographies, one must go back to the works of Paul Tschackert (1877) and Louis Salembier (1886, 1932). Millet and Maillard-Luypaert’s engaging biography, written with a popular audience in mind, is thus a ... Read More

  • Dissimulation and Deceit in Early Modern Europe ed. by Miriam
           Eliav-Feldon, Tamar Herzig (review)
    • Abstract: Lucas Cranach the Elder’s “The Mouth of Truth,” adorning the cover of the book under review, depicts an adulterous wife at court who escapes perjury by devising a clever plan. Having asked her lover to dress as a Fool, she puts her hand in the mouth of a lion’s statue—the early-modern “lie detector”—and simultaneously touches her disguised lover, claiming that she has never touched anyone except her husband and that Fool. In July 2015, the earlier version of this painting was sold at Sotheby’s for the record sum of $14.3 million. Yet the monetary value of this artistic exploration of ambiguity surrounding seemingly truthful utterances is only secondary to the ever-growing academic and public interest in the ... Read More

    • Abstract: This volume is a collection of excellent essays on a variety of things consecrated and holy, the use made of them, and attempts to compromise them. Topics include patronage and the arts, popular devotion and a sixteenth-century reinterpretation of iconoclasm, protest and control, property rights, and imperial rule. Most studies focus on Western Europe, but a few extend to the Spanish colonies in the New World. Many of the essays make rigorous use of archival sources, and the artifacts also are sources of information for some. When discussing their subjects, most authors preferred to focus on the content, intention, and reception that can be proven or reasonably inferred from the documents (whether ... Read More

  • The Correspondence of Wolfgang Capito. Vol. 3: 1532–1536 by Erika
           Rummel (review)
    • Abstract: Of all the first-generation reformers, Wolfgang Capito’s journey toward adherence to the evangelical cause was one of the most difficult and painful. As professor of theology at Basel, he was a friend of both Desiderius Erasmus and the printer Johann Froben. It was Capito who suggested to Froben the collected edition of Martin Luther’s early works that did so much to spread Luther’s teaching beyond Germany. In 1520 he became an adviser to Cardinal Albrecht von Brandenburg, archbishop of Mainz; even when, after much agonizing, he resigned his positions in the old church, these bonds remained strong. Here, in the third volume of this excellent edition of Capito’s correspondence, a storm erupts when Capito ... Read More

  • Accounting for Affection: Mothering and Politics in Early Modern Rome by
           Caroline Castiglione (review)
    • Abstract: Caroline Castiglione’s project in Accounting for Affection is to understand “why motherhood came to have a political valence in the seventeenth century” (p. xiii). She looks for the answer to that question by tracing the activities of a succession of five noble Roman women who were related to one another. The chief sources for this study are collections of letters from these women, pleading their cases to authorities and to kin, natal and marital. After an illuminating introduction that presents the figure of the mother embroiled in litigation over her view of the family and its needs (mater litigans as Castiglione dubs her, p. 11), the book begins with a chapter on Anna Colonna Barberini and her ...

  • Fealty and Fidelity: The Lazarists of Bourbon France, 1660–1736 by Seán

His fine book considers the legacy of St. Vincent de Paul in the sixty-six years after his death during which the Congregation of the Mission, or the Lazarists, navigated a changing political and religious world. Although many books have been published about Vincent’s life and his community’s significance as a dynamic force in Catholic-Reformation France, the history of the Congregation after his death is not often explored, and Smith’s book is a welcome addition. Vincent defined the Lazarists as expressing fidelity to “Christ’s original mission” through service to the poor, and ... Read More

    • Abstract: In the year 1687 the book Confucius Sinarum philosophus sive… appeared in Paris, published by Philippe Couplet during his stay in Europe. This book contains translations (or better paraphrases) of three (Daxue, Zhong Yong, and Lunyu) of the Sishu, the so-called “Four Books” that constituted the basics for the annual examinations of the Confucian scholars in China. The Latin translations were the fruit of the efforts of several Jesuits in China starting from the pioneers Michele Ruggieri and Matteo Ricci at the end of the sixteenth century up to Inácio da Costa and Prospero Intorcetta until Couplet himself. The purpose of these translations was twofold: the earlier versions served as lectures for newly ... Read More

  • Unnatural Frenchmen: The Politics of Priestly Celibacy and Marriage,
           1720–1815 by E. Claire Cage (review)
    • Abstract: During the radical phase of the French Revolution, all ties to Christianity became suspect. “Citizen-Priests” who had previously established their support of the Revolution were forced to prove that support through a variety of means, including abdicating their vows—or, if they preferred, getting married. These clerical marriages are the focus of Unnatural Frenchman, a brief but well-researched and often moving book about the thousands of Gallican priests who married during the Revolutionary era. E. Claire Cage takes a long-term view of this phenomenon. Starting with a (mostly superfluous) discussion of the history of Catholic clerical celibacy, Cage then turns to the debate over clerical celibacy ... Read More

Timothy Tackett is the latest historian to make the attempt. Much might be hoped for from the author of the authoritative assessment of the response to the Civil Constitution of the Clergy (September 1790)—Religion, Revolution, and Regional Culture in Eighteenth-Century France (Princeton, 1986)—and an expert on the work of the National Assembly, 1789–91, Becoming a Revolutionary (Princeton, 1996). Tackett does not disappoint; insisting that violence emerged out of the Revolutionary process itself, he makes a major contribution to historians’ ... Read More

The idea of “Greater Ireland” is not simply a synonym for the Irish diaspora. The Irish in “Greater Ireland” continued to be linked by emotional, cultural, and symbolic ties to the old country. Unlike other studies of the global Irish, the sixteen essays in this work emphasize the centrality of religion in Irish Catholic and Protestant culture, at home and abroad. The editors freely admit that this is not a comprehensive study of the topic; some geographical areas are neglected such as the West Indies, Argentina, Western Australia, and Britain, where the complexities are ...

There is a chapter on Newman and the French modernists but not one on his more informed reception in Germany. Benjamin J. King shows how the Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (London, 1845) aroused critical, albeit very different, reactions from Evangelicals, liberals, and High Churchmen in the Church of England. Kenneth L. Parker and C. Michael Shea point out that it is not true that the Essay was rejected by the Roman Catholic Church right up until the ... Read More

The author deals with the debates, acrimonious and otherwise, that followed publication, involving Renan directly as well as his defenders and adversaries. Priest also discusses Renan’s audience that encompassed intellectuals, church people, and admirers whose religious and cultural lives were transformed by Renan and his Jesus, as well as Renan’s legacy and the ...

It is valuable because of its thoroughness, balance, and use of archives in Russia, France, and especially Vatican City. The author’s work is unparalleled in presenting new material and in explaining the Holy See’s bureaucracy, decision-making process, and the singular importance of the popes and the Pro Russia Commission, which was set up by Pius XI in 1925, in crafting Vatican policy toward Russia.

Local vicar Robert Beaken clearly understands the context of Colchester, a garrison town in Essex, and he also benefits from an abundance of documentation. In addition, he shows a generally excellent and up-to-date sense of the wider historiography of the British home front during World War I. In an episcopal church the character of the bishop in authority always matters. Colchester had in early 1914 been incorporated into the new Anglican diocese of Chelmsford. Colchester thus found itself going to war under the oversight of John ... Read More

    • Abstract: Sante Lesti’s Riti di guerra. Religione e politica nell’Europa della Grande Guerra deals with efforts mainly in France and Italy during World War I to rally Catholics to the cause of war and perhaps to show that they were just as patriotic as everybody else. This involved a number of projects in both countries, and Lesti focuses on attempts to dedicate to the Sacred Heart either the “nation” (as in the French case) or the army (as in Italy). Later some undertook the task of dedicating the “Allies.” That who or what should be consecrated depended on each nation’s historical situation, a conundrum that adds to the value of Lesti’s provocative and well-researched book. Both prewar Italy and France had famously ... Read More

Making the pope’s decision even more difficult was that, in many cases, these atrocities were being enthusiastically carried out by Roman Catholics. Kornberg concludes that Pius XII saw his first responsibility to be the preservation of his Church as a vehicle for the ... Read More

Expelled from European countries for longer or shorter intervals, Jesuit émigrés carried abroad European ideas about the Catholicism and its culture. Jesuit ideas about papal leadership and central authority aroused suspicion and opposition in an era of growing nationalism. Derided as enemies of modern thought and suspected of being more loyal to a foreign power than to national leaders, Jesuits defended papal infallibility “as a necessary counterweight to the dangers posed by modern nationalism and a check on liberal Catholics eager for ...

Kyle Haden, O.F.M., promises a “reinterpretation” of the riots and their milieu in Anti-Catholicism in American History: A Reinterpretation, which is revised from his dissertation.

           Catholic America by William B. Kurtz (review)
    • Abstract: Excommunicated from the Union is at once a narrative of American Catholics’ experiences in the Civil War and a history of those effects the war wrought on American Catholicism. William B. Kurtz contends in this volume that “the American Civil War played a pivotal role in accelerating the antebellum trend in American Catholicism toward isolation and separatism” (p. 8). Loyal Catholics in 1861 viewed the Civil War as a stage upon which to perform their roles as patriotic citizens and, in so doing, gain respectability in American culture. Ultimately, however, Catholics grew disenchanted with the war, and their disenchantment yielded devastating consequences for coreligionists seeking assimilation into the ... Read More

  • We Gather Together: The Religious Right and the Problem of Interfaith
           Politics by Neil J. Young (review)
    • Abstract: As Donald Trump gained momentum in the 2016 Republican primary race, many wondered how religious conservatives could vote for a man whose personal life and political views seemed so distant from their own. Neil J. Young’s We Gather Together: The Religious Right and the Problem of Interfaith Politics answers this question by making two interrelated arguments. First, he compellingly demonstrates that the Religious (Christian) Right was a shaky political, rather than sturdy theological, alliance. Second, he highlights that the fractious and precarious confederation of evangelical, Catholic, and Mormon interests meant that its constituents are neither uniform nor consistently in line with their institutional ...

  • Nixon’s First Cover-up: The Religious Life of a Quaker President by
           H. Larry Ingle (review)
    • Abstract: Just as many Americans are turning away from religion, many American historians are rediscovering it. One such scholar is H. Larry Ingle, with his meticulously researched and richly detailed study, Nixon’s First Cover-up: The Religious Life of a Quaker President. Ingle effectively argues that few have written about Richard Nixon’s faith in large part because the nation’s thirty-seventh president wanted it that way. Ingle, the author of two books on the Religious Society of Friends, is at his best when he explains the historical divergence between the eastern “silent Friends” (such as William Penn’s followers) and the western “evangelical Friends” (such as Richard Nixon’s parents). Ingle condemns ... Read More

  • Forbidden Passages: Muslims and Moriscos in Colonial Spanish America by
           Karoline P. Cook (review)
    • Abstract: The history of Muslims and Moriscos in colonial Spanish America is an important topic. Considerably more scholarly attention has been paid to the history of conversos (Jewish converts to Christianity, voluntary or otherwise, and their descendants) than to moriscos (Muslim converts to Christianity, voluntary or otherwise, and their descendants). This book goes some way to rectifying that imbalance. Moreover, Spanish and criollo attitudes to Moriscos during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries betray a disconcerting likeness to the twenty-first-century fears and prejudices of many established citizens of Western Europe and North America toward Muslim immigrants and their descendants. Karoline Cook’s book is ... Read More

  • Father Benito Viñes: The 19th-Century Life and Contributions of a Cuban
           Hurricane Observer and Scientist by Luis E. Ramos Guadalupe (review)
    • Abstract: The specter of the hurricane–el ciclón–looms large over the Cuban imagination. The hurricane entered the cosmology of Cuba as a fixed circumstance of life, a prospect that people between May and November every year are obliged to contemplate as a potential catastrophe, contemplated with a mixture of dread and resignation. The reality of the hurricane has insinuated itself deeply into Cuban sensibilities. Memories of hurricanes are passed from one generation to the next, as something lived and later as something learned. The stories develop over time into received knowledge that passes as conventional wisdom, shared as a common experience. But it is also true—for these very reasons—that no people are ... Read More

  • Our Lady of the Rock: Vision and Pilgrimage in the Mojave Desert by Lisa
           M. Bitel (review)
    • Abstract: On December 9, 1531, Mexico’s most famous visionary first saw the Virgin Mary in her avatar as Our Lady of Guadalupe, on the hill called Tepeyac, outside of Mexico City. Catholic neophyte Juan Diego was looking like a Christian, continuing a centuries-old tradition of visual grammar, a language of witness and verification, of envisioning the Virgin. In Lisa Bitel’s remarkable new book, Our Lady of the Rock: Vision and Pilgrimage in the Mojave Desert, with photographs by Matt Gainer, she tells the story of one of Mexico’s more recent visionaries, Maria Paula Acuna, who now lives in California City, on this side of the border, and sees the Virgin on the thirteenth of every month, deep in the dusty ...

  • Nigerian-Vatican Diplomatic Relations: Evangelisation and Catholic
           Missionary Enterprise, 1884–1950 by Blaise Okachibe Okpanachi (review)
    • Abstract: This book provides the reader with a serviceable account of the structural development of the Catholic Church in Nigeria—north, south, east, and west. It tracks that history from failed attempts in previous centuries, and the successful setting down of roots in the 1860s, to the thriving institution that had emerged by 1950, when the Nigerian hierarchy was erected and supervision of the Church passed from the Congregation of the Propagation of the Faith to the Congregation for Bishops. The presentation of a comprehensive picture is of particular value because, up to this time, histories of the Church in Nigeria tended to be either sketchy or, when well-researched and scholarly, confined to a particular ...

  • The Nature of Christianity in Northern Tanzania: Environmental and Social
           Change, 1890–1916 by Robert B. Munson (review)
    • Abstract: In The Nature of Christianity in Northern Tanzania, Robert B. Munson explores the ideas and practices associated with the introduction and development of Christianity in northern Tanzania during the German colonial period. This period started in 1890 and ended during World War I. Munson’s specific interest is to examine the role that the Lutheran and Roman Catholic Christian missions played in introducing Christianity, reordering space, and introducing new species of plants that Africans appropriated, adapted, and used to address their own social, economic, and political needs. Drawing on a rich array of German archival sources, Munson argues that Christian Missions’ emphasis on new plant species and ... Read More

  • The Acta Pekinensia or Historical Records of the Maillard de Tournon
           Legation. Vol. 1: December 1705–August 1705 by Kilian Stumpf, S.J.
           (review)
    • Abstract: The Chinese Rites Controversy is widely regarded as one of the most destructive events in the history of Christianity in China. The dispute over which ancestral and Confucian rites were permissible for Christians featured the Jesuits generally in favor of an accommodating interpretation, whereas most non-Jesuits favored a stricter interpretation and prohibitions. The controversy culminated in the journey of the papal legate Charles Thomas Maillard de Tournon to China in the years 1705–10. The Acta Pekinensia consists of a daily record of Tournon’s stay written by Jesuits. Tournon was highly antagonistic to the Jesuits, whom he blamed for sabotaging his legation. The Acta Pekinensia represents ... Read More
