  • Public Authority and Private Constraints: Eugenius III and the Council of
           Reims
    • Abstract: Amid the range of concerns that fill his De consideratione (c. 1150)—the rising influx of litigation appealed to the papal court, bribery, the threat of envy and ambition throughout the ecclesiastical hierarchy—Bernard of Clairvaux took time to look back to the Council of Reims that had taken place in 1148. The council, called by Pope Eugenius III (1145–53), had issued reforming canons, debated episcopal primacy, resolved disputed marriages, and addressed cases of heresy (see Figure 1). But Bernard did not cast it—or Eugenius's role in it—in a positive light:Did you not promulgate with your own mouth the laws proposed at the Council of Reims' Who keeps them' Who has kept them' You deceive yourself if you think ...

  • The Roman Inquisition Revisited: The Maltese Tribunal in the Eighteenth
           Century
    • Abstract: Anew study of the procedure of the Roman inquisition may sound at first out of place if not presumptuous. John Tedeschi, the doyen of such studies, Adriano Prosperi, Andrea Del Col, Christopher Black, Brian Pullan, Elena Brambilla, Ruth Martin and Thomas F. Mayer, among others, have already produced sufficiently remarkable work to deter other writers.1 However, a new attempt is worth trying for three reasons. First, it will introduce aspects of the inquisitorial procedure which may have been neglected or only partially addressed by other historians, or which are peculiar to the Maltese tribunal. Second, interest in the history of the inquisition seems far from being exhausted. Third, hopefully this study may serve ... Read More

  • Law and Catholicism in Colonial Maryland
    • Abstract: "The doctrine of toleration in matters of religion, reasonable though it certainly is, has not been long known or acknowledged. … [B]ut while immortal honours are bestowed on the name and character of Locke; why should an ungracious silence be observed, with regard to the name and character of Calvert'"Montesquieu famously concluded in The Spirit of the Laws that each form of government has an animating principle—a set of "human passions that set it in motion"—and that each form can be corrupted if its animating principle is undermined.1 The animating principle of a particular English American colony is usually easy to discern. To mention two well-known examples, religious toleration was Rhode Island's animating ... Read More

  • The Catholic Faith of John Stuart Mill's Stepdaughter: A Note on the Diary
           and Devotional Life of the Feminist Activist Helen Taylor (1831–1907)
    • Abstract: Helen Taylor (1831–1907) is rightly identified in her Oxford Dictionary of National Biography. entry as a "promoter of women's rights."1 Her championing of this cause included her role as a key organizer of the first-ever petition for women's suffrage presented to Parliament (in 1866); her success in drawing considerable attention to civil restrictions on women by herself attempting to stand for Parliament before women were legally eligible to do so (in 1885); serving on the London School Board; and writing The Claim of Englishwomen to the Suffrage Constitutionally Considered. (1867).2 Taylor is also remembered for being the stepdaughter of the philosopher John Stuart Mill; his closest companion and confidant in ... Read More

  • The Council on Campus: The Experience of Vatican II at Boston College
    • Abstract: In early October 1962, just before he left for Rome to participate in the opening session of the Second Vatican Council, Cardinal Richard Cushing, the archbishop of Boston, welcomed two undergraduates from Boston College to his residence. The students, one an English major and the other an economics major, both of them juniors, presented the cardinal with a "spiritual bouquet" (see Figure 1). Most mid-twentieth century American Catholics would have immediately recognized a spiritual bouquet, defined by one encyclopedia as "an enumerated collection of prayers, devotional exercises, and acts of self-denial offered … for spiritual benefit." The idea was that a group of the faithful could undertake a large number of ... Read More

    • Abstract: The reception of married convert priests in the Catholic Church was made possible by a set of policies and permissions established in 1980 that have come to be known as the Pastoral Provision.1 The term "pastoral provision" refers to a privilege or accommodation that is made for pastoral reasons, to remove barriers to or help facilitate the spiritual growth of a person or group. The accommodation for Anglican converts provided for them to retain certain cultural practices, such as a traditional Anglican liturgy and married clergy, to smooth their entry into the Catholic faith. How is it that the Catholic Church came to make such a generous accommodation for Anglicans' And why only for Anglicans, and not other ... Read More

  • Armsbearing and the Clergy in the History and Canon Law of Western
           Christianity by Lawrence G. Duggan (review)
    • Abstract: Archbishop Turpin's fighting valiantly next to his comrade in arms, Roland, is one of the most dramatic scenes in medieval literature. In the early Middle Ages clerics fought and fought very well. Clerics continued to make their presence felt on the fields of battle during the medieval and early modern period. Duggan paints a broad picture of the moral conflict between a cleric who should never shed blood and the powerful right of self-defense that was a part of the Ius commune. of the time. Duggan begins his account in ancient Roman law and carries the story up to the Codices iuris canonici. of 1917 and 1983. He points out that by the twentieth century, the issue of warrior clerics had almost disappeared from ... Read More

  • Indispensable Immigrants: The Wine Porters of Northern Italy and their

    • Abstract: Fernand Braudel looms large over Lester K. Little's deeply researched and highly readable new monograph. The title borrows a phrase from Braudel to describe the importance of foreign workers—often low-paid and unskilled—who, then as now, contributed their all-important labor to any given economy. The subtitle also evokes the great practitioner of longue durée. history indicating that Little will take a long view of its subject: six hundred years and then some as he interlaces a social history of the rise and slow demise of the brentatori.

  • La coexistence confessionelle en France et en Europe germanique et

           Catherine Vincent (review)
    • Abstract: This collection of articles dates back to a 2012 conference held in Strasbourg. The articles cover a broad sweep of history, from the early Middle Ages into the twentieth century. Most focus on German-speaking lands, with a particular focus on Alsace, but there are articles about France, Lithuania, Geneva, Poland, and the Netherlands. As always in such collections, the quality is mixed, a situation that is further exacerbated by the fact that many of the articles appear to be only lightly edited since being delivered orally.The theme of the conference, "confessional coexistence," is understood broadly here. While the focus of the collection is on relations between the Christian confessions, articles also engage the ... Read More

The editors alight on two historical 'slices' to focus discussion of what Bruno Dumons calls the 'historical anthropology' of liturgical reform: the Romanization of the liturgy across France between 1839 and 1875; and the lead-up to Vatican II, and its aftermath. Though the nineteeth century is less well represented than the twentieth, this attempt at a dialogue between the two periods works promisingly well.'Does liturgy make society' ... Read More

  • The Triumph of Empire: The Roman World from Hadrian to Constantine by
           Michael Kulikowski (review)
    • Abstract: The third century of the Christian era has been a killing field for courses in Roman history, in more ways than one. Most obviously, the disruptions of that century—from barbarian invasions to plague to a more aggressive Persian empire to a dizzying turnover in holders of the imperial office—stands in unhappy contrast to Edward Gibbon's "most happy and prosperous" second century. But it has been almost equally devastating for scholars who entered Roman history through the study of classical texts, since they find the absence of a narrative in a reliable primary source unpalatable. Hence a tendency either to end a course with the death of the philosopher-emperor, Marcus Aurelius, or to take a deep breath and with a ... Read More

  • Evagrius and His Legacy eds. by Joel Kalvesmaki and Robin Darling Young
           (review)
    • Abstract: In recent decades, scholars have grown increasingly interested in the writings of Evagrius of Pontus and in his influence on subsequent Christian thought in east and west. The originality and complexity of his teaching continually challenge academics to understand correctly his spirituality and theology as well his manifold legacy and the reasons for his condemnation after his death. This volume is the fruit of a recent, two-year workshop organized by Dumbarton Oaks and the University of Notre Dame, and it collects studies of excellent scholars from very different areas of patristic and medieval studies, all of whom investigate Evagrian thought and its history.The indisputable merit of this book is that it ...

He had previously published a translation from Latin of the additional two books that Rufinus of Aquileia added to his Latin translation of Eusebius of Caesarea's Ecclesiastical History.

Guenther Roth and Claus Wittich [Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1978], p. 53). The culmination of a three-year international research project based at the University of Granada, this book seeks to investigate the applicability of Weber's theory of domination to the political establishment of Christianity in the later Roman empire. Given Weber's continuing importance and influence, this is an exciting prospect. Unfortunately ... Read More

James D. Mixon's admirable translation of Gert Melville's Die Welt der mittelalterlichen Klöster: Geschichte und Lebensformen.

The reasons behind its inception and then redistribution are just as varied: to construct a legendary and miracle-laden account of Charlemagne's wars in the Iberian Peninsula, to advertise the great pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, to supply sermon writers with trenchant exempla, to transmit catechism, to source subjects for the visual arts (perhaps most famously in the Charlemagne Window at Chartres), and considerably more.

Porro is well known as an expert on Aquinas, and in the present volume he offers a magisterial contribution to Aquinas scholarship. Anyone with serious interests in Aquinas who lacks fluency in Italian will be grateful to the translators and to the Catholic University of America Press for making the book available in English.It has rightly become common to stress that Aquinas was not a philosopher in the modern sense. He did not formally lecture on philosophy. He was a Dominican friar whose interests were chiefly theological. Yet his writings contain much that contemporary philosophers can recognize as ...

Alfonso X (r. 1252–1284) came to power in a kingdom that was struggling to absorb a vast amount of territory and people recently conquered from Muslim Iberia, and devoted himself to expanding his borders still farther. But he was also keenly aware of, and eager to participate in, the rich intellectual heritage created by generations of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian scholars in the lands he now ruled. He and the diverse scholars he patronized produced a dazzling array of books on a whole library of ... Read More

  • Translating Clergie: Status, Education, and Salvation in
           Thirteenth-Century Vernacular Texts by Claire M. Waters (review)
    • Abstract: In the Romano-German pontifical compiled at Worcester under Wulfstan and his successors, the bishop is instructed to prostrate himself with fellow penitents during the recitation of the litany on Maundy Thursday, physically making him both their companion and intercessor in the ordo. Managing the postures of humility is one of the important sociologies of the regular life, as Rachel Fulton has argued, and abbots or bishops have a duty to enact these gestures for the community.This episcopal gesture came to mind as I read Claire M. Waters' intriguing exploration of Anglo-French works of religious instruction. She argues that the relationship between master and disciple in these texts is grounded in a shared ... Read More

This makes him a prime candidate for that latest milk cow of academic publishing: the "Companion" genre of collected articles.The editor, Chris Jones, introduces his apt volume with a nice survey of John of Paris's life and of recent scholarship. On June 26, 1303, John of Paris signed a petition originating at the court of King Philip the Fair that called for a general council against Pope Boniface VIII. John's famous work, De potestate regia et papali, forms part of this conflict. It is not, however, his only surviving work: John also ... Read More

Scholars have consequently produced a relatively large collection of edited primary sources by and about the saint as well as a plethora of geographically and topically specific studies about various aspects of the saint's activities and thought. What has been notably lacking from this wealth of published materials, however, has been a single cohesive and comprehensive survey of the charismatic preacher revealed by these sources. Philip ...

We know her best through the collection of her "sermons"—meditations on biblical themes and events that she delivered in a semi-conscious state, first to her sisters at the third-order Franciscan convent in Cubas where she was the abbess, and later to more public gatherings that would have included secular attendees. She claimed that she delivered these sermons in Jesus' voice. Her narrations often included elaborations on established biblical narratives ... Read More

  • Patron Saint and Prophet: Jan Hus in the Bohemian and German Reformations
           by Phillip N. Haberkern (review)
    • Abstract: A Reformation legend recounts a dream wherein a Saxon prince saw a German monk writing words on a church door with a quill that stretched from Wittenberg to Rome. The monk claimed that the quill came from a 100-year-old Czech goose. Visual depictions featured the quill dislodging the papal tiara while remaining impervious to all efforts to break it. While the ancient goose perished in a bonfire, the dream of Elector Frederick the Wise was about Luther and Jan Hus (after the stake). Though the text of the dream and its visual depictions reflect the thesis of Phillip Haberkern's book, this tale is curiously omitted from his study.The title notwithstanding, this is not a book about Jan Hus. That said, it is a study ... Read More

    • Abstract: This is the story of Ippolito Chizzola of Brescia (early 1520s–1565). He became a Lateran Canon Regular at the age of twelve, then became a well-known preacher by his late twenties. But he preached heresy by means of carefully chosen words, hints, implications, and omissions. Summoned to Rome, he began to testify before the Congregation of the Holy Office in July 1549. Under questioning Chizzola equivocated on confession, the Eucharist, and other Catholic doctrines. On July 1, 1550, the Holy Office ordered him to make the abjuration of someone under strong suspicion of heresy. It sentenced him to return to Venice to read the text of abjuration publicly, then to preach sermons admitting his guilt in the same ... Read More

    • Abstract: This is not a biography of the Jesuit Saint Peter Canisius (1521–1597), who is usually considered the first German Jesuit though he was a Dutchman. It is rather an investigation of Jesuit identity as "apostles," and of the influence of authorities, especially of secular authorities but also of the pope on the evolution of Jesuit ministries especially in Germany, all as seen principally from the perspective of Peter Canisius. According to Foresta, the Jesuits discovered their apostolic and pastoral mission, and by extension, their identity in Germany more than elsewhere where they became champions of the Counter-Reformation. As far as Canisius's life is concerned, the book does not extend beyond 1570, the year after ... Read More

Lake examines the ongoing dialogue between, on the one hand, Latin and vernacular Catholic texts and, on the other, Elizabethan Protestant polemics: despite their common use of paranoid, conspiracy-obsessed discourse, they highlight the national and international. political and religious stakes involved in such subjects as the mixed monarchy, religious persecution or toleration, the succession question, the uncertain boundary between Church ...

           (1623-1688) ed. by Noël Golvers (review)

He stands as the exotic counterpart to the European court Jesuits of the early modern era, employing his skills as an astronomer and engineer in the service of the Kangxi Emperor at Beijing. Indeed, it is primarily due to the prestige of Verbiest, as well as of his immediate predecessor in the role of court astronomer Johann Adam Schall von Bell, that the Jesuit mission to China was for centuries considered a metropolitan affair; that is, one centered upon the Chinese imperial capital in the hopes of bringing about the conversion of the emperor himself.

She sets out to study informers in Williamite England because this "illuminates the complex interplay of the credit of the state with the credit of individuals" (p. 11). The 1690s were undoubtedly difficult years, with a new governing regime that was simultaneously keen to emphasize how different it was from the Catholic rule of James II, and anxious to downplay accusations of novelty and illegitimacy after a massive invasion of the country. As Weil notes, "The two major goals of the new regime, securing itself against enemies and winning the trust of subjects, were mutually interdependent but sometimes contradictory" (p. 68). The new regime ... Read More

Danker challenges the standard explanation that the separation of Wesley and Evangelicals within the Church of England toward the end of the 1760s was simply the outcome of theological debate, primarily about predestination and Christian perfection—the Arminianism of the Wesleyan Methodists versus the Calvinism of Anglican Evangelicals.

  • The Scots College, Spain, 1767-1780: Memoirs of the Translation of the
           Scotch College from Madrid to Valladolid by John Geddes (review)
    • Abstract: The Catholic Church was almost wiped out in Scotland at the Reformation, surviving only as a tiny remnant, poor, illegal, and persecuted. Because of the dangers at home Scottish seminaries were established in several Catholic cities abroad, whence priests could return to lead the slow rebuilding. One was in Madrid, where a property had been gifted to the Scots for this purpose in 1627. It was administered by the Jesuits, and when in 1767 that Society was expelled from Spain it passed into the custody of the Spanish Crown. Three years elapsed before the Scottish bishops sought to save their College, by which time it was about to fall into the hands of the Irish.The priest they sent over to Spain, Mr. John Geddes ...

  • Mother of the Church: Sofia Svechina, the Salon, and the Politics of
           Catholicism in Nine-teeth-Century Russia and France by Tatyana V.
           Bakhmetyeva (review)
    • Abstract: Bakhmetyeva provides a compelling portrait of Svechina, of early nineteenth-century Russian Catholicism, and of the wider world of nineteenth-century French Catholicism, where Svechina played an important role. She uses extensive primary and secondary printed and archival sources, particularly those of the Bibliothèque Slave. Born into an aristocratic family in Moscow in 1782, Sofia Soimonova early demonstrated unusual intellectual talent and received an excellent education in languages, literature, science, and philosophy. Married at seventeen to the forty-year-old General Nikolai Svechin, she played an active role in St. Petersburg's salons, where women, who had little public role, became "deeply enmeshed" (p. ...

  • Religious Experience in the Work of Richard Wagner by Marcel Hébert
           (review)
    • Abstract: Although the Jesuit philosopher Abbé Marcel Hébert (1851-1916) left seminary "a convinced Thomist" (p. xxi), his philosophical outlook was to change considerably after studying Kant and Schopenhauer. This, together with the growing interest in Wagner in France (see especially the Revue wagneriénne) and the symbolist movement which looked to Wagner for its inspiration, meant that it was natural for this priest to turn to the composer for new inspiration in what was later to be termed "Modernism." Hébert taught at the École Fénelon in Paris, becoming its director in 1895. However, when his unorthodox views become known to the Church hierarchy, he resigned his position and in 1903 "quietly left the church" (p. xxiv n. ... Read More

  • Historians and the Church of England: Religion and Historical Scholarship,
           1870-1920 by James Kirby (review)
    • Abstract: The central argument of James Kirby's elegant monograph on British historical scholarship between the mid-nineteenth century and the end of World War I is that many of the most influential and widely-read historians of the period were committed members of the Church of England, some lay and many ordained. Kirby begins by establishing the importance and prestige of history in late-Victorian and Edwardian Britain, noting that a popular work like J. R. Green's Short History of the English People (1874) vastly outsold the novels of George Eliot and Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. He explores the formation of the "Anglican historians"—E. A. Freeman, William Stubbs, J. S. Brewer, Nicholas Pocock, J. E. Thorold ... Read More

  • Hitler's Religion. The Twisted Beliefs That Drove the Third Reich by
           Richard Weikart (review)
    • Abstract: In this eminently readable and insightful book, Richard Weikart investigates Adolf Hitler's personal beliefs. Questions about Hitler's religion continue to animate and divide scholars, not least because Hitler frequently lied about his religious convictions to mollify and mislead his supporters and gain political advantage.Not surprisingly, Hitler was much preoccupied with Christianity and the Catholic and Protestant churches in Germany. Weikart takes to task scholars, most notably Richard Steigmann-Gall, who, in part based on Hitler's early conciliatory tone toward the churches, concluded that Hitler was "a sincere Christian, at least until 1937" (p. 71). Weikart instead contends that "the evidence is preponderant ... Read More

  • A Church Undone: Documents from the German Christian Faith Movement,
           1932–1940 by Mary M. Solberg (review)
    • Abstract: In selecting, translating, and introducing over twenty documents composed by members of the pro-Nazi "German Christian Faith Movement," Mary M. Solberg has filled a significant gap in the English-language literature concerning both the German Church Struggle (Kirchenkampf) and the religious dimension of the Holocaust. Asking "What were they thinking'" Solberg concludes that the German Christians constructed a powerful myth "that complemented, strengthened, and served National Socialist goals" (p. 3). They were "true believers, not only in Jesus Christ, but also in Adolf Hitler and his Nazi revolution," whose work enabled other Germans to understand life in the Third Reich "as fully compatible with their Christian ...

           Maraviglia (review)

A priest of the Order of Friar Servants of Mary (Servites), Turoldo lived the most important moments of Italian church history, in the most important places in Italy. He is a key figure for those who try to understand the complex relations between religion, culture, and politics in the last century in Italy.The first chapter discusses the origins of Giuseppe (David Maria was his monastic name), born into a poor family of sharecroppers in northeastern Italy during World War I, not far from the frontline with ...

    • Abstract: When one hears about spy activities it is usually not associated with a religious entity. Perhaps this is just one reason why this book is unique and thus will be an eye-opening opportunity to learn that any institution can be subject to the scrutiny of a foreign government and with good reasons.Having a background as a former intelligence officer with the United States Army and the profession of a journalist, the author uses a substantial amount of information secured from government documents, transcripts, and numerous individuals associated with intelligence activities to give us a penetrating insight into how Russia and Eastern European governments secured what they considered important information about the ...

  • Vatican II behind the Iron Curtain ed. by Piotr H. Kosicki (review)
    • Abstract: This book consists of six articles about the impact of the Second Vatican Council of 1962–65 on the Roman Catholic Church in eastern Europe. It explores how the Ostpolitik of Pope John XXIII represented a reaching out to the Communist world and brought significant change to the position of individual churches in eastern Europe.These studies represent a major step forward in scholarship about the role of the Vatican in twentieth-century Europe. The Vatican has been slow to open its archives to scholars, with the result that in 2017, these archives are open only as far as 1939. Those historians writing on later topics, such as Pius XII's reaction to the Holocaust or the role of the Vatican in the origins of the Cold ... Read More

  • Rwanda before the Genocide: Catholic Politics and Ethnic Discourse in the
           Late Colonial Era by J. J. Carney (review)
    • Abstract: As a tragic failure of Catholic leadership the role of bishops in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda is unique in the history of the Church. This does not make it easier to emancipate Rwanda's historiography from contemporary attempts to condemn or defend the Church. Carney brings both diligent scholarship and theological insight to a range of sources, deploying what Alisdair MacIntyre defines as the core virtues in politics and ethics: generosity, justice, truth and—a degree of—intellectual courage (Ethics and the Conflicts of Modernity, p. 97)."Courage" because Church history on Rwanda is invariably scrutinized for evidence supporting the defense or prosecution.

  • John Eliot and the Praying Indians of Massachusetts Bay: Communities and
           Connections in Puritan New England by Kathryn N. Gray (review)
    • Abstract: Kathryn N. Gray's John Eliot and the Praying Indians of Massachusetts Bay focuses on a small number of books, letters, and pamphlets written by John Eliot and his fellow missionaries in seventeenth-century New England. The texts include Eliot's Algonquian translation of the Bible and his Indian Dialogues, a set of imaginary conversations between Puritan ministers and Indian leaders that were, as Eliot said, "partly historical … and partly instructive to show what might or should have been said" (quoted in Gray, p. 46). Gray also discusses various occasional pieces by Eliot and others, including the eleven multi-authored reports known collectively as "the Eliot Tracts." The tracts described progress on the ...

  • Patriotism & Piety: Federalist Politics and Religious Struggle in the New
           American Nation by Jonathan J. Den Hartog (review)
    • Abstract: In this year of political turmoil, religious fear, and major challenges to federal institutions and what used to be touted as American values, Jonathan Den Hartog's 2015 book merits careful study. Federalists played a large role in establishing the norms and institutions that defined politics and religion in the early United States and in shaping forms of social organization that persist to this day. Federalists also played a decisive role in establishing a culture of religo-political factionalism that even now thrives with a vengeance.Den Hartog's main thesis is that Federalism passed through three phases—Republican, Combative, and Voluntarist. John Jay represents the Republican phase. As a devout Episcopalian ... Read More

  • Yankee Bishops: Apostles in the New Republic, 1783 to 1873 by Charles R.
           Henery (review)
    • Abstract: Readers of this volume should be aware of two elements that are not entirely evident from the title. First, the bishops that are the subject of this volume are bishops of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America (more commonly known by the shorter title as the Episcopal Church). There is little or no reference to the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, the Methodist church, or to any other denomination in America that made use of the title "bishop" in the period covered by the study. This work is the seventh volume in the Studies in Episcopal and Anglican Theology series for which C. K. Robertson serves as the general editor. It is an internal denominational study that ...

  • Maya and Catholic Cultures in Crisis by John D. Early (review)
    • Abstract: This lengthy text concludes an ambitious study of Catholicism's encounter with highland Maya indigenous in Mexico and Guatemala beginning with the Conquest1 and, in this second volume, into the new millennium. Drawing on a lifetime of field experience and reading across several disciplines, John D. Early, professor emeritus of anthropology at Florida Atlantic University, insists on the indispensability of religion to cross-cultural understanding and focuses on its decisive significance for the Maya.The "crisis" of the title refers, in the Maya sphere, to disruption of the articulation between social-cultural tradition and peasant subsistence that explains the persistence of the Maya in the modern era. Early agrees ... Read More

  • Miguel Pro: Martyrdom, Politics, and Society in Twentieth-Century Mexico
           by Marisol López-Menéndez (review)
    • Abstract: During the most intensely anticlerical phase of the Mexican Revolution, the period corresponding with the presidency of Plutarco Elías Calles (1924–28), the spilt blood of churchmen blended with that of rebels. For the Calles regime, there was no difference. However, Professor Marisol López-Menéndez successfully argues that for the faithful, the difference could not have been greater. In Miguel Pro: Martyrdom, Politics, and Society in Twentieth-Century Mexico, López-Menéndez examines the making of a martyr in the memorialization of the death of Jesuit Father Miguel Agustin Pro in 1927 at the hands of Calles' forces. López-Menéndez blends a variety of analytical approaches to paint a complex portrait of Pro, and in ... Read More
