  • Historian with a Double Major: The Church and Feminism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Photograph by Andrew LavrinI became a historian of the Church by serendipity. But then, I have learned that many of my colleagues who also cultivate this field have confessed that they had a similar experience. It is a good club to belong to. As for the feminism side of my career, it was a well-thought choice, but it came much after I began navigating the waters of church history. The serendipity part came as a recently married twenty-three-year-old graduate student walked into the office of a historian at the University of California in Berkeley. He was Robert C. Padden, who had published a justifiably popular and well-researched book on the conquest of Mexico, the Hummingbird and the Hawk. He was not a historian ... Read More

  • Cathar "Time-Focused Dualism"—An Argument for the Eastern Origins of
           Catharism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: British historian Bernard Hamilton in his article published in 1974 showed that the Bogomil Church of Drugunthia was formed in the twelfth century under Paulician influence and that it professed radical dualism of two principles.2 This church played a crucial role in the history of medieval dualism. Rainer Sacchoni—a former Cathar perfect (for seventeen years)—based on his insider knowledge, mentioned two Bogomil churches, that of Bulgaria and that of Drugunthia, claiming that all the existing dualist churches in the middle of the thirteenth century (when his summa was written) originated from one of them.3 Other sources also confirm his words, underlining the importance of the Drugunthian church in the formation ...

  • The Crusading Indulgence and the Revolt of the Comunidades of Castile
           (1520–21): Ecclesiastical Reform and Local Religious Life

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Even though ecclesiastical properties were exempt from taxation, from the Middle Ages onwards the Church contributed to the royal treasury.1 By the sixteenth century, kings obtained money from the churches to cover their growing expenses. In Spain, different mechanisms were used such as the tercias reales, the subsidio, and the excusado (the last one during Philip II's reign), and, most notably, the sole crusading indulgence (bula de cruzada).2 In this context, the bula was the most important fundraising strategy, with the advantage that it took the money from the subjects, not directly from the ecclesiastical resources. It should be noted that money and salvation were often related by several mechanisms—considered ... Read More

  • From the Dove to the Eagle: Jansenist Visual Culture Between Piety and
           Polemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The condemnation of Jansenism in the papal bull Unigenitus (1713) set off a firestorm across Europe. Opposition was particularly strong in France, where critics of the bull could be found at all levels of the clerical hierarchy as well as among the laity.1 The Jansenist newspaper, the Nouvelles ecclésiastiques, was a key arena where this struggle was litigated from its foundation in 1728 all the way to its closure in 1803.2 Widely read in spite of attempts by the police to crack down on its publication, the Nouvelles is a bellwether for changes in the theological tendency known as "Jansenism."With a name that originated as a pejorative term coined by Jesuits, "Jansenism" combined three key elements: a strongly ...

           Context of Georgian-European Relations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The attitudes towards the Catholic West among the Orthodox Georgians and Orthodox Greeks almost always had significant differences. The anti-Latin stance of the Greeks was not normal for the Georgians. Original Georgian theological literature has no known work opposing Catholicism until the eighteenth century. The Anvil (in Georgian: გრდემლი, Grdemli) is the only extant anti-Latin work (primary text) done in the Georgian language, the likes of which had never been written until then or afterwards in Georgia's history.What developments in Georgia's domestic affairs or foreign relationships can explain the composition of this unique anti-Latin tract' It must be said that there has never been any intentional ...

  • Brownson, Politics, and "The Laboring Classes" During a Presidential
           Election

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The presidential campaign of 1840 produced what Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. called "one of the most remarkable of the documents of Jacksonian democracy."1 Orestes A. Brownson's "The Laboring Classes," an article published in the Boston Quarterly Review in July 1840, is remarkable, this paper argues, because it combined Brownson's Transcendentalism, his idealist philosophy and theology, the rhetoric of the workingmen's movement, and concrete proposals for radical legislative reforms that would create equal opportunity in American democratic society.2 In short, it reflected currents of American intellectual, religious, and social life in the early nineteenth century. "Laboring Classes," moreover, was the first social ... Read More

  • Black Saints in Early Modern Global Catholicism by Erin Kathleen Rowe
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Erin Rowe's study examines one of the central paradoxes of early modern Catholic culture as lived religion, namely devotions to Black (African, Afro-Portuguese, or Afro-Latino) men and women within societies where blackness was associated with enslavement or low status. By retracing the circulation of images and traditions of Black sanctity among European, African, and mixed-race Catholics on either side of the Atlantic, she demonstrates these devotions' global scale and the varied responses that they produced. Rowe approaches her topic from several angles, considering how the cults of a handful ... Read More

  • The Saint and the Saga Hero. Hagiography and Early Icelandic Literature by
           Siân E. Grønlie (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Siân E. Grønlie comments in the volume under review that "the saints were not just literary characters to the medieval Icelanders, but a powerful and active presence in their lives" (p. ix). This basic fact is often ignored by scholars of medieval Icelandic literature and culture. While a token nod may be made to the fact that the thirteenth-century saga authors were Christian (indeed as is now repeatedly suggested, they may have been associated with monasteries), the significance of that fact is often overlooked. Those who study the secular sagas have all too often neglected to read the translated passiones and vitae of the saints. This in spite of the fact that, as Stefán Karlsson pointed out two decades ago ... Read More

  • John F. Kennedy and the Politics of Faith by Patrick Lacroix (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Patrick Lacroix has written an important work of revisionist scholarship. Indeed, he argues—for the most part quite convincingly—that scholars of American religion (and of U.S. Catholicism in particular) have largely gotten the "secular sixties" completely wrong. As Lacroix argues the case, most previous scholars studying the contours of twentieth century American religious history have taken it as axiomatic that the famous "religious revival" of the 1950s ended with Dwight Eisenhower, and that the election of JFK in 1960 ushered in both the end of anti-Catholicism as a mainstream American pastime and the beginning of the era of waning religiosity during the 1960s and 1970s. But according to Lacroix, there was no ... Read More

           Constance Hoffman Berman (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With her excellent The White Nuns, Constance Hoffman Berman completes a trilogy of revisionist books on medieval Cistercians. Medieval Agriculture, the Southern French Countryside, and the Early Cistercians (1986), conclusively demonstrated that the standard account of early Cistercians as rural pioneers who settled in and cleared waste wilderness is a myth; The Cistercian Evolution (2000) showed that the Cistercian Order was not a spontaneous institution fully formed in its first decades but was invented gradually across the twelfth century. Here Berman expands upon her article-length work about Cistercian women going back thirty years.Part I asks, "Were There Cistercian Nuns in Medieval Europe'" The answer ... Read More

           the Council Organized by Pontificio Comitato di Scienze Storiche (Rome,
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This volume, one of several commemorating the 1215 Lateran Council, approaches the topic through five sections—"Foundations, Historical and Historiographical Contexts," "Doctrine and Ecclesiology," "Clergy and Laity," "Heresy, Jews and Crusades," and "Religious Orders"—with contributions from history, theology, and canon law. The twin foci of the title—institutional reform and spiritual renewal—are represented across these sections, providing two complementary pathways through the contributions.The influence of the University of Paris underpins the theme of spiritual renewal. Johannes Helmrath emphasizes the school's shaping of Innocent III's oratory and rhetorical acumen, while Nikolas Jaspert demonstrates how his ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A few years ago, some of the most interesting and important work on medieval inquisition and inquisitors moved either inward or outward. Karen Sullivan's book The Inner Lives of Medieval Inquisitors (2011) turned toward the subjectivity of individuals in an effort to understand what drove their inquisitorial zeal, while Christine Caldwell Ames's Righteous Persecution looked beyond the inquisitors to medieval Christendom generally and found a repressive mentality that was widely shared.2 Now we have Derek Hill's Inquisition in the Fourteenth Century: The Manuals of Bernard Gui and Nicholas Eymerich (2019), which turns neither inward nor outward but is focused resolutely on texts and their contexts and is in its own ...

  • In Search of "the Genuine Word of God": Reception of the West-European
           Christian Hebraism in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the
           Renaissance by Rajmund Pietkiewicz (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The author, Rajmund Pietkiewicz, is professor of Old Testament Exegesis and the Hebrew language at the Pontifical Faculty of Theology in Wroclaw, Poland. His field of specialization is the study of biblical translations into Polish. He is the first who studied Hebraica in the Renaissance Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. His work in Polish of 2011 and 2012 is now available in English, translated by Monika and Jacek Szela.The "Commonwealth" under consideration here is the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, the Grand Dutchy of Lithuania and the fief lands of that commonwealth. The first mention of Hebraists appears around 1507, the date which marks the beginning of Pietkiewicz's study which ends with the year 1638, when ... Read More

  • Courtship, Slander, and Treason: Studies of Mary Queen of Scots, the
           Fourth Duke of Norfolk, and a Few of Their Contemporaries, 1568–1587 by
           Arthur Freeman and Janet Ing Freeman (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Two distinct but complementary sections comprise this work: "Mary Queen of Scots and the Fourth Duke of Norfolk: The Literature of the 'Forbidden Match,' 1568–73" by Arthur Freeman; and "The Trial and Death of Mary Queen of Scots in Contemporary Report: A Codicological Study" by Janet Ing Freeman. The studies are not, as the authors explain in the Prefatory Note, "retellings or reinterpretations … but essentially surveys of contemporary literature—narrative, argumentative, judgemental, propagandistic, and libellous—devoted thereto" (p. vii). Both sections begin with a clear, concise presentation of the historical background; indeed, a very helpful time line from 1509 to 1603 concludes the book. Each text is ... Read More

  • Catholics during the English Revolution, 1642-1660: Politics,
           Sequestration and Loyalty by Eilish Gregory (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As indicated in the subtitle, this volume is a detailed analysis of the process of sequestration through which Catholic landowners were threatened with the loss of substantial estate holdings. Such economic penalties were not new to Catholics faced with the recusancy laws of Elizabeth and the early Stuarts and, in the course of three generations before the Civil Wars many of them had devised strategies for survival, often with the connivance of sympathetic Protestant neighbors and kin. In that sense they were prepared, more so than those Protestants, usually Episcopalian, who had taken arms on behalf of the Crown and, in consequence, also faced sequestration. Focussing largely on this issue, and how Catholics ... Read More
