The spirit of Catholicism by Karl Adam( Book )

What are the fundamental attributes of the Catholic Church? What is the source from which it has drawn vigor and life through its two thousand years of life on earth? What are the secret sources of its incredible vitality in the world today? The author answers these and many other questions about the nature and structure of the Church. He examines the essential nature of the Catholic Church from the basic premise that it was expressly founded by Christ, traces its historical development and analyzes its actual functioning through the ages

Christ our Brother by Karl Adam( Book )

12 editions published between 1931 and 1962 in English and German and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Takes one central doctrine of the Christian faith in relative isolation and endeavours to bring this doctrine home to us in its living reality. Throughout this book there is practically but one subject, our Lord and Saviour, and practically but one aspect of that subject, the sacred humanity. Convinced that dogma is the very structure of the Christian life and that any obscuration of dogma is bound to impair that life, the author would have us meditate upon the doctrinal fact that our Lord is not only true God, but also true and perfect man

The rule of St. Benedict; a commentary by Paul Delatte( Book )

11 editions published between 1921 and 2016 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This rule has been harmonized with the 1917 Code of Canon Law and contains the original Latin of the rule with English translation and commentary. The man of God, Benedict, among the many wonderful works that made him famous in this world, was also conspicuous for his teaching: for he wrote a Rule for monks, remarkable for discretion and rich in instruction. If anyone desires to know more deeply the life and character of the man, he may find in the ordinances of that Rule the exact image of his whole government: for the holy man cannot possibly have taught otherwise than as he lived." To this judgement of St. Gregory the Great, l so complete for all its grace of form and sobriety of language, we may yet add two observations: first that the moral beauty of St. Benedict, his temperament and almost his characteristics, are reflected also in the pages, at once candid and profound, of his biographer; secondly, that the Rule itself came, in the middle of the sixth century, as the ripe fruit of a considerable monastic past and of the spiritual teaching of the Fathers. St. Benedict was above all else a man of tradition. He was not the enthusiastic creator of an entirely new form of the religious life: neither nature nor grace disposed him to such a course. As may be seen from the last chapter of his Rule, he cared nothing for a reputation of originality, or for the glory of being a pioneer. He did not write till late, till he was on the threshold of eternity, after study and perhaps after experience of the principal monastic codes. Nearly every sentence reveals almost a fixed determination to base his ideas on those of the ancients, or at least to use their language and appropriate their terms
Whistler and the world : the Lunder collection of James McNeill Whistler at the Colby College Museum of Art by Colby College( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It also honors the commitment of Peter and Paula Lunder to share that beauty by making it available for all to enjoy at the Colby College Museum of Art. Reproducing the entirety of the collection - more than 300 works in total - the catalogue contains the finest and most extraordinary examples of his work from across his illustrious career. Twenty-four essays from leading and emerging scholars provide insightful analyses and thoughtful reflections on one of the most innovative and rebellious artists of the nineteenth century. This volume pays tribute to Whistler's creative force and to the exquisite ways he elevated his surroundings into the realm of art. each work in the catalogue is one part of what Whistler termed "the story of the beautiful," a quest to capture the beauty he saw in the world, a mission to enrich lives through his art. This is a story the Lunder Collection tells superbly
