The Church Besieged, The French Revolution, Nationalism, And The Battle Over Modernity, William Doherty Ph.D. 2018 Marian University - Indianapolis

The Church Besieged, The French Revolution, Nationalism, And The Battle Over Modernity, William Doherty Ph.D.

Department of History and Social Sciences

"From the French Revolution, 1798, right through the nineteenth century and into the 20th Century, in nearly every major European country the Catholic Church found itself embattled. Its monopoly in religion ended or challenged by anti-clericalism, secularism, liberalism targeting the Church’s authority and putting its privileges, property, prestige, and independence under siege.

Every pope from Pius VI (1775-1799) to Pius X (1903-1914) fought against the enemy--modernity. They revived the Index of Prohibited Books, declared monarchy the best polity, and condemned church-state separation, toleration, freedom of conscience, and any idea the Church needed reform."

The Indianapolis Catholic Press, 1876 To 1947, William Doherty Ph.D. 2018 Marian University - Indianapolis

The Indianapolis Catholic Press, 1876 To 1947, William Doherty Ph.D.

Department of History and Social Sciences

"This chapter deals with the Indianapolis Catholic press in its various guises under a variety of managers from the Gilded Age to just after World War II. Given the damage of Martin Luther’s printed placards and pamphlets, the Catholic Church has never been completely at peace with either books or newspapers. But to tell its story, it found it had to produce its own publications. The first newspaper written for Indianapolis Catholics, the Western Citizen, 1876-1882, was not sponsored by the diocese, but since its target audience was the Irish-Catholics of the city and its environs, it qualified well-enough ...


Christ The Truth: Church, Revelation, And Sacrament, Frederick Gray 2018 Carroll College, Helena, MT

Christ The Truth: Church, Revelation, And Sacrament, Frederick Gray

Theology Undergraduate Theses

Supernatural or divine truth seems to be beyond the grasp of humans and fundamentally incompatible with creaturely finitude. If Christianity is to be true, it needs an account of how supernatural truth is revealed and known.1 Such an account has many avenues and opportunities for research, since the attendant notion of revelation is at the core of faith. In this chapter I will develop out the problem, a taxonomy for handing it, and offer an itinerary for the rest of the work.


Redeeming Augustine, Redeeming The Body: Critiquing Popular Readings Of Augustine’S Theology Of The Body And Their Historical Consequences, Rebecca Poliquin 2018 Carroll College, Helena, MT

Redeeming Augustine, Redeeming The Body: Critiquing Popular Readings Of Augustine’S Theology Of The Body And Their Historical Consequences, Rebecca Poliquin

Theology Undergraduate Theses

Fourth-century bishop of Hippo, St. Augustine, formed a theology of the body that has a profound influence on Church history and modern Catholic thought. Much of his influence, however, is muddied by the receptive history of his work. Later theologians, such as John Calvin, used Augustine’s theology to form their own thought without regard for Augustine’s inner turmoil as a particular and conflicted man experiencing his place in time: living with intersectional identities during the waning of the Western Roman Empire. Without a careful, methodical approach to treating Augustine as both singular and universal, we become potential subscribers ...

The Christian Conscience: Where Our Freedom And The Truth Intersect, Shannon Voelker 2018 University of St. Thomas, Minnesota

The Christian Conscience: Where Our Freedom And The Truth Intersect, Shannon Voelker

School of Divinity Master’s Theses and Projects

The aim of this paper is to root the meaning of conscience within Thomistic tradition, along the way establishing the claim that subjective human freedom is founded upon objective truth. Following a brief historical analysis of the term conscience, we examine three commonly experienced manifestations of conscience: inner voice, practical judgment, and the lifelong process of virtue. Further on, these manifestations are rooted in Thomistic tradition, demonstrating their compatibility with Catholic Church teachings. We also discuss our responsibility to both follow and form our consciences and the relationship between our freedom and the laws which direct us to our personal ...


After Vatican Ii: Renegotiating The Roles Of Women, Sexual Ethics, And Homosexuality In The Roman Catholic Church, Kenneth Brian Nauert Jr. 2018 Western Kentucky University

After Vatican Ii: Renegotiating The Roles Of Women, Sexual Ethics, And Homosexuality In The Roman Catholic Church, Kenneth Brian Nauert Jr.

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Vatican II was one of the most seminal councils in Roman Catholic Church history, having far reaching effects on the universal institution.1 One of the most important outcomes of Vatican II was not the reforming of orthopraxy, but the dialogue that developed regarding three specific issues – the transforming of women’s roles in Church life, Catholic sexual ethics, and the Church’s relationship with LGBTQ+ individuals.2 The decades following Vatican II became a new era of religious dialogue among Catholic scholars and theologians, which established new discussions on women’s ordination, sexual ethics, and attitudes towards homosexuality in ...

Church And State In Rwanda: Catholic Missiology And The 1994 Genocide Against The Tutsi, Marcus Timothy Haworth 2018 SIT Study Abroad

Church And State In Rwanda: Catholic Missiology And The 1994 Genocide Against The Tutsi, Marcus Timothy Haworth

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

During the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, over one million Tutsis were killed by the government of Rwanda and Hutu extremists. In this study, I address two questions: (1) did the Church, as an institution, offer a convincing counter-narrative to the dominant ideology of racialized ethnic identities of twentieth century European colonialism in the present-day nation-state of Rwanda? If it did not, why not? And, (2) what role, if any, did the Church, as an institution, play, in promoting a “social imagination” that valued religious identity, or truths, over the dominant European colonial ideology, and later the nationalistic narrative of ...


Rediscovering The Theology Of Lay Ministry And Presenting A Pastoral Plan: “The Integral Christian Formation Of Lay Leaders” For The Catholic Church In Tamil Nadu, India, Bernard Joseph Viagappan 2018 Loyola Marymount University

Rediscovering The Theology Of Lay Ministry And Presenting A Pastoral Plan: “The Integral Christian Formation Of Lay Leaders” For The Catholic Church In Tamil Nadu, India, Bernard Joseph Viagappan

LMU/LLS Theses and Dissertations

Even after the Vatican II has categorically revealed the role and the place of the laity in the Church, there is so much of resistance and cynicism prevailing among the clergy and the people in the Indian Church about this clarion call of the Council. Around 90% of Catholics keep themselves passive in their faith practice. As we delay the promotion of active and full use of the lay potential, the greater the chance and number of the lay faithful losing their faith. A strong feeling of insecurity in the clergy leads to distrust of lay talents and charisms and ...


Religion, Politics And War In The Creation Of An Ethos Of Conflict In Colombia; The Case Of The War Of The Thousand Days (1899-1902), Margarita J. Diaz Caceres 2018 Florida International University

Religion, Politics And War In The Creation Of An Ethos Of Conflict In Colombia; The Case Of The War Of The Thousand Days (1899-1902), Margarita J. Diaz Caceres

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this thesis is to understand the way in which religion and politics played a role in the formulation of a cyclical ethos of conflict, focusing in the last and most important civil war of nineteenth-century Colombia: The War of the Thousand Days (1899-1902). A historiographical review was used to understand the interactions between these two structures, and it pointed at a main problem centered in the political use of religion, as well as the transformation of political debate into a matter of political faith. In conclusion, the War of the Thousand days strengthened narratives of vengeance, worsened ...


Pope Francis Won't Support Women In The Priesthood, But Here's What He Could Do, Lisa McClain 2018 Boise State University

Pope Francis Won't Support Women In The Priesthood, But Here's What He Could Do, Lisa Mcclain

History Faculty Publications and Presentations

On March 13, Pope Francis will complete his first five years as head of the Roman Catholic Church. Since his election, Pope Francis has engaged the estimated 1.2 billion Catholics and innumerable non-Catholics worldwide with his frank, inclusive talk on issues as diverse as poverty and homosexuality. In fact, many observers seem confused by the church’s apparent willingness to reconsider traditions regarding some contentious issues, such as divorce.

None Of Us Faces Judgment Alone: ‘Zurbarán’S Jacob And His Twelve Sons’ At The Frick, Griffin Oleynick

Catholic Studies Faculty Publications

Our turning to God during Lent, and our experience of new life at Easter, either happens together, as part of a family of faith, or not at all.

A new exhibition of Spanish paintings by the Golden Age master Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664), “Jacob and His Twelve Sons: Paintings from Auckland Castle,” on view through April 22 at the Frick Collection in New York City, provides a refreshing reminder of this dynamic by bringing us into conversation with our religious ancestors, the Old Testament Patriarchs.
