The letter on apologetics and History and dogma by Maurice Blondel( Book )

13 editions published between 1964 and 1995 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of French philosopher Maurice Blondel lies behind most of the controversies in twentieth-century French Catholic thought, and bore its fruit in the Second Vatican Council. Recognized in Europe as one of the outstanding figures in the Catholic revival that began at the turn of the century, Blondel was described by Pope John Paul II as "one of the first to discern what was at stake in the Modernist crisis." Published together here are two of Blondel's most significant texts. The Letter on Apologetics (1896) is a key statement on the possibility and meaning of Christian philosophy. History and Dogma (1904), written in response to the Modernist crisis, is an important contribution to the notion of tradition, seeing it neither in terms of historicism nor as something mechanical, but as a living synthesis. Introductory essays by Alexander Dru and Illtyd Trethowan provide essential historical and biographical background as well as an account of the philosophical and theological principles of Blondel's thought. -- Back cover

The contribution of German Catholicism by Alexander Dru( Book )

7 editions published in 1963 in English and German and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author discusses the main events of Catholic progress in Germany from 1800 through 1918, emphasizing the cultural and intellectual milieux rather than political events. This independent development of the Church in Germany, which began with the French Revolution, forms a vital chapter in the history of the universal Church. As the author states, "the German Church showed its continued vitality by recognizing the cultural revolution as the necessary preliminary to fulfilling its mission. Where the Church of France settled into reaction, the Church of Germany experienced a spiritual and intellectual renaissance because it was independent of the relations of Church and state." The important historical figures and their contributions to this singular yet far-reaching change are treated thoroughly and cogently. Events such as the Kulturkampf, the Syllabus of Errors, the influence of the Romantics, and the famous Munich Congress of 1863 are analyzed in detail. The final section deals with the early twentieth century and shows how the traditional unity within the German Church was to be transformed into a new organic unity

The Church in the nineteenth century : Germany 1800-1918 by Alexander Dru( Book )

6 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The outcome of the French Revolution was that it revealed the new situation in which the Church was to fulfil her mission. The process of adaptation and the response to this situation occupies a century and a half. It is part of the history of this process that is here described. While the political solution reached in France is adopted by Rome, in Germany the succession of events is different. Catholicism revived there spiritually and intellectually; and it is for this reason that the present volume pays particular attention to that country thus throwing light on a part of history that is usually neglected. It is a period dominated by the rival schools of Tübingen and Mainz and by great names -- Schlegel, Müller, Brentano, Görres, Möhler, Kettler -- as finally the Church emerges as a spiritual and dynamic organism rather than as a static corporation endowed with powers and privileges.
