The path to Rome by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

176 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Path to Rome is less concerned with Rome itself than with a pilgrim's journey to the Eternal City. A spirited Catholic apologist, Belloc traveled on foot from Toul (near Nancy), France, and crossed the Alps and the Apennines in order to, in his words, "see all Europe which the Christian Faith has saved." Afterward, he turned his pen from his usual polemics to literature, and related in finely crafted prose his myriad experiences with the people he met along the way, as well as his reflections on tradition, politics, landscape, and much else. Throughout, the work abounds in Belloc's inimitable wit and good humor, and displays his profound love for the land, his faith, and his fellow man
The servile state by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

97 editions published between 1845 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Servile State is a book written by Hilaire Belloc in 1912 about economics. Although it mentions Distributism, for which he and his friend G.K. Chesterton are famous, it avoids explicit advocation for that economic system. This book lays out, in very broad outline, Belloc's version of European economic history: starting with ancient states, where slavery was critical to the economy, through the medieval economies based on serf and peasant labor, to capitalism. Belloc argues that the development of capitalism was not a natural consequence of the Industrial Revolution, but a consequence of the earlier dissolution of the monasteries in England, which then shaped the course of English industrialization

How the reformation happened by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

76 editions published between 1920 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this famous and surprising book, the great Catholic historian Hilaire Belloc gives the true and largely untold story which answers one of the most important historical questions in our civilization: "How did Christendom suffer shipwreck?" Showing that this momentous question is invisible to Protestant movement was by no means the culmination of a long natural progress, but rather was one of six mortal perils which had threatened to destroy Catholic European civilization - and was the only one, which, tragically, failed to be stamped out by the Catholic Church. Belloc describes how it was not doctrine, but avarice and rebellion against the clergy, which originally fueled the Reformation. He readily admits that corruption among Churchmen and clerical abuses regarding Church revenues prepared the way for the Flood of Revolt, as did Humanism and a growing contempt for authority - plus the perennial "hatred of the Catholic Faith." Belloc maintains that Luther just happened to be the one to let loose "the Flood," that the international threat of a Mohammedan invasion (largely overlooked by historians) paralyzed the German authorities at this crucial moment, that England fell to Protestantism through a "political accident," and that the dark genius of Calvin then clarified and shaped the anti-Catholic fury into a definite program. As for the doctrine of "Justification by Faith alone," Belloc says it was not a motive of the movement, but "an afterthought." He describes how Catholic and Protestant forces spent 10 years lining up for battle, then 13 years in battle - followed by the Church's belated defense (through the Jesuits and the Council of Trent), by further combats, and finally by one last great struggle, and finally by one last great struggle to keep Christendom united (the Thirty Years War), which ended in exhaustion for both sides and a divided Europe after the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. In all this panorama of great historical events, Belloc highlights the driving forced played by greed: For the rare opportunity to transfer Church lands and revenues into private hands provided a powerful incentive for the gentry and nobles to cast their lot with the new Protestant movement. How the Reformation Happened is perhaps the most cogent explanation ever penned of what was really going on in the titanic 16-century upheaval of Catholic Europe. It is a book that cannot be ignored by anyone who would understand our Western Civilization - or who would understand where that civilization is now heading as a result of the tragic Protestant Reformation. -- from back cover

Charles the First, King of England by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

53 editions published between 1933 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A striking portrait of Charles I, this book also looks closely at the role that the burgeoning financial powers played in shaping European politics and the effects that these powers had on the English monarchy during his reign. Belloc also explores the consequences of these effects for Europe generally. At the same time, it is a detailed study of the man who was Charles I with all his strengths, all his weaknesses. Belloc's sense of history sheds light on how those strengths and weaknesses contributed to action or inaction by Charles and how those actions affected England and the rest of Europe

Charles II : the last rally by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

14 editions published between 1939 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Last Rally, Belloc narrates a central episode in the decline of the English Monarchy. Restored to the throne following the interlude of Cromwell's "Commonwealth," Charles II devoted his life as King of England to maintaining the integrity of the throne against all the forces arrayed against it: the power of the great landowners who worked through the Parliament; the influence of the Lawyers' Guild; and the irresistible mercantile and financial strength of the City of London. The story that Belloc brings to life is thus one of survival: the story of a ship of state brought "through peril and storm under a great captain." It is also the story of manhood and determination in the face of overwhelming odds; as such it is a story that Hilaire Belloc was eminently qualified to write."--Jacket

The free press by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

21 editions published between 1918 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hilaire Belloc, a great English essayist of the 20th century, takes an uncompromising look at the forces working against the freedom of the press. Targeting financial and political influences, along with the influence of advertising, Belloc exposes the powers and motives responsible for the suppression of news and the manufacturing of opinion. Neither pie-in-the-sky idealism nor an irrational conspiracy theory, The Free Press is a rationally argued essay explaining the origins of those influences and factors that make the press less than what it should be honest: fair, and independent. This is a topical work written almost a century ago. Times have changed, but the situation has gone from bad to worse, and thus this work is even more relevant today. This book will be of interest to anyone, particularly the student of journalism and its history, who is curious about the rise of the major papers and media networks, and about the forces both overt and semi-covert working to shape what is reported and which opinions are sanctioned
An essay on the restoration of property by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

31 editions published between 1936 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present essay should be sufficient in itself to silence all such criticism on the first count. Herein it is at once obvious and striking just how practical the Distributist Vision was; practical not in the sense of easy, but practical in the sense of being articulated with a view toward application and implementation. For in the Restoration of Property, Belloc's concern is not so much with explaining what a Distributist society is, but with sketching, even if in neccessarily brief and vague terms, what that society looks like, how it might be achieved, and how it should be preserved."--Jacket
