For decades, scholars have assumed that the genius of John Henry Newman remained underappreciated among his Roman Catholic contemporaries. In order to find the true impact of his work, one must therefore look to the century following his death. Newman's Early Roman Catholic Legacy, 1845-1854 unpicks this claim. Examining a host of overlooked evidence from England and the European continent, C. Michael Shea considers letters, records of conversations, and obscure and unpublished theological exchanges to show how Newman's 1845 Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine influenced a host of Catholic teachers, writers, and Church authorities in nineteenth-century Rome and beyond. Shea explores how these individuals employed Newman's theory of development to argue for the definability of the new dogma of the Immaculate Conception of Mary during the years preceding the doctrine's definition in 1854. This study traces how the theory of development became a factor in determining the very language that the Roman Catholic Church would use in referring to doctrinal change over time. In this way, Newman's Early Roman Catholic Legacy, 1845-1854 uncovers a key dimension of Newman's significance in modern religious history.
Upon Mademoiselle Louise Humanns death in 1836, a distraught Abb Thodore Ratisbonne said of his spiritual mother, Here lays this sweet, strong Christian who, from the depths of her quiet, secluded home, has exercised more influence on the world of her time than will ever be known! Yet in an era when women had few opportunities to excel or contribute to society outside the home, how did this brilliant and pious French mystic help re-Christianize France following the upheaval of the French Revolution? In Louise Humann (17661836)Re-Christianizing Post-Revolutionary France, author Margaret R. OLeary provides a thorough and comprehensive English-language exploration of the history and life of a woman whose extraordinary intellectual prowess, range of thought, and curiosity helped assist a risky underground pastoral ministry during the French Revolution and rebuild the decimated Roman Catholic diocese of Mayence, France. From her early years as a youth receiving the daily light of God to the later development of her radical Christian philosophya philosophy that so confounded Pope Gregory XVI that he said she and her disciples had sinned by an excess of faiththe history of Louise Humann comes alive in detailed historical records, letters, and biographies. Though an anachronism for her timea woman with the mind of a man and the capabilities of a scholar, said one professor who knew her as a youththe power of Louise Humanns apostolate is central for understanding the direction and development of the Roman Catholic Church and the Congrgation de Notre Dame de Sion in the nineteenth century.
