The secularization of the European mind in the nineteenth century : the Gifford lectures in the University of Edinburgh for 1973-4 by Owen Chadwick( Book )

90 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on Professor Chadwick's Gifford Lectures in the University of Edinburgh 1973-74, this is a many sided study of the declining hold of the Church and its doctrines on men's minds and lives. The historian must examine what men believed and how strongly they held their beliefs, as well as statistics of church attendance. The use of new machinery, the growth of big cities, a cheap press, attitudes to popular representation, and the impact of Marx are all relevant, as well as the development of evolutionary science and scientific history. Professor Chadwick studies each of these themes, and the Church's reactions to change, in penetrating detail. Woven into the broad themes of the book are brief but illuminating studies of major thinkers like Marx, Darwin, Mill, Comte, Renan, Taine and Michelet, as well as other nowadays less regarded such as Vogt, Draper, Buchner, Brunetiere and Vogue."--Back cover

The Victorian church by Owen Chadwick( Book )

80 editions published between 1900 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In part one, the author writes of the church's precarious position at the start of the period (1829-59), and the problems of dissent; the Whig reform of the Church by the ministries of Peel and Melbourne; the Oxford Movement, the influence of Newman and the development of ritual; the relations of church and government under Lord John Russell; the growth of the seven principal dissenting bodies, the theory and practice of Church and State at mid-century, and the troubles that arose over eucharistic worship; and finally the unsettlement of faith and the several attempts at restatement at the close of the period. In part two, Professor Chadwick completes his study of the Victorian Church with detailed accounts of the problems which confronted the Church in the latter part of the nineteenth century (1860-1901): the question of science and religion, the acceptance of biblical criticism, the Church in village and town, changes in the attitude to the episcopacy, relationship with the Roman Catholics, and the growth of secularization. The two volumes together provide an understanding of the background of many of the problems which the Church faces today. --from back covers

Catholicism and history : the opening of the Vatican Archives by Owen Chadwick( Book )

24 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continual and sometimes heated interest is shown in the control by governments over documents in their possession, and in the time during which access to them is denied - and not only on the part of the historians to whom the documents are of prime concern. Professor Chadwick summarises the gradual establishment of the papal records down to the beginning of the nineteenth century, when they were carried off to Paris on the orders of Napolean. Their return (for the most part) to Rome and the subsequent history of the relationship between their guardians and would-be users provide a lively narrative of human as well as historical interest. The author shows how an argument developed within the Vatican itself between the statesmen who wished rigourously to restrict what was released to the public and the historians who wanted free access. This important study of how new attitudes and techniques of history affected the Church is based upon the author's Herbert Hensley Henson Lectures in Oxford 1976, and will interest documentalists and general readers as well as ecclesiastical and general historians

A history of Christian missions by Stephen Neill( Book )

27 editions published between 1965 and 1991 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of Christian Missions traces the expansion of Christianity from its origins in the Middle East to Rome, the rest of Europe and the Colonies, and assesses its position as a major religious force worldwide. Many of the world's religions have not actively sought converts, largely because they have been too regional in character. Buddhism, Islam and Christianity, however, are the three chief exceptions to this and Christianity, in particular, has found a home in almost every country in the world. Professor Neill's excellent and authoritative survey examines centuries of missionary activity, beginning with Christ and working through the Crusades and the colonization of Asia and Africa up to the present day, concluding with a shrewd look ahead to what the future may hold for the Christian Church."--Book cover
The early Reformation on the continent by Owen Chadwick( Book )

The spirit of the Oxford movement : tractarian essays by Owen Chadwick( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of new and revised essays Owen Chadwick, perhaps the most distinguished living historian of religion, writes on various aspects of the Oxford Movement and the English Church in the Victorian era. Along with studies of Newman, Liddon, Edward King and Henri Bremond are included more general essays surveying the reaction of the Established Church and on the nature of Catholicism. In particular, the revision of the long-unobtainable introductory essay, The Mind of the Oxford Movement, illustrates once again the profound contribution Owen Chadwick has made to our understanding of religion in Britain in the nineteenth century
The Christian Church in the Cold War by Owen Chadwick( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the end of the Second World War until the rise of Gorbachev the division of Europe was the central fact in world politics - for individuals, nations and the different Christian Churches. Amid the ferocious polemics of the Cold War era neutrality was impossible. The pressures of modernity led to the Second Vatican Council and affected Churches on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Almost all had to adapt to declining congregations, concerns about human rights and women's role in religion, and new attitudes to abortion, contraception and divorce. Yet day-to-day problems in the East and West were utterly different. In Eastern Europe, the Churches were victims of state control, savage ideological attacks, show trials and occasional physical violence. Critics dwelt on their sometimes inglorious record of compromise and collaboration under fascist regimes, despite the crucial role of the religious resistance in fighting Nazism. Later Church leaders - Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox - often continued to tread a delicate path, but Polish priests helped to oversee the birth of Solidarity, and oppressed nations drew hope from the symbols and ceremonies of their Christian past. Successive Popes, meanwhile, were torn between hatred for Marxism's militant atheism and a pragmatic desire not to endanger the Catholics of Eastern Europe. The post-war West, by contrast, has seen different countries adapting their own complex arrangements about relations between Church and State. Traditional practices in the great monastic orders, the language of the liturgy and pilgrimages to saints' shrines came under fresh scrutiny, although the charismatic movement proved astonishingly successful. Yet how deeply have the churches come to terms with the fierce winds of modernity? Where religion is tolerated, and even encouraged, do people truly believe what East Europeans know from bitter experience - that 'the religious conscience is an ultimate safeguard of human freedom'?
