The Catholic Literary Revival and the Cultural Transformation of American Catholicism, 1920-1960


Author: Arnold Sparr

Publisher: Greenwood Publishing Group

ISBN: 9780313263910

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 221

View: 9214

The Catholic literary revival in America refers both to the impact of the modern resurgence in European Catholic thought and letters upon the American Church between 1920 and 1960, and to efforts by American Catholic leaders to induce a similar flowering in their own country. Sparr examines those areas of Catholic thought and culture that most concerned educated American Catholics, critics, and cultural leaders between 1920 and 1960: the renaissance in Catholic literary, theological, philosophical, and social thought; its application to modern problems; and the growth and development of the 20th century Catholic novel.

Christian Librarianship

Essays on the Integration of Faith and Profession


Author: Gregory A. Smith

Publisher: McFarland

ISBN: 9780786413294

Much of the current library literature assumes that professional library service is necessarily neutral-detached from the librarian's philosophical or religious views. By contrast, contributors to this collection assert that librarianship is best practiced as an outworking of spiritual conviction. Accordingly, they discuss principles for integrating Christian faith and librarianship within various contexts, and reflect on professional issues from biblical and theological perspectives. This text will prove beneficial to Christians working in all types of libraries, whether religious or secular. This compilation of 16 essays is divided into two main parts, the first on theory and the second on practice. The first part includes chapters such as A Rationale for Integrating Christian Faith and Librarianship, The Master We Serve: The Call of the Christian Librarian to the Secular Workplace; and The Impact of the Christian Faith on Library Service. Chapters in the second part include Library Encounters Culture, A Christian Approach to Intellectual Freedom in Libraries and Keeping Sunday Special in the Contemporary Workplace Culture. Contributors include William Fraher Abernathy, Rod Badams, Donald G. Davis, Jr., John Allen Delivuk, Kenneth D. Gill, Graham Hedges, D. Elizabeth Irish, James R. Johnson, Roger W. Phillips, Gregory A. Smith, Stanford Terhune, John B. Trotti, John Mark Tucker and Geoff Warren.

Consecrated Phrases

A Latin Theological Dictionary : Latin Expressions Commonly Found in Theological Writings


Author: James T. Bretzke

Publisher: Liturgical Press

ISBN: 9780814658802

Category: Foreign Language Study

Page: 140

Designed to give readers a simple but accurate idea of a Latin expression, this dictionary compiles, translates, and briefly explains the phrases found in theological writings and canon law that may puzzle readers unfamiliar with Latin or the theological meaning and nuances of these terms. Consecrated phrases refer to expressions which are used, often in shorthand manner, to express a certain theological position or thought, which express a significant position of Roman Catholic sacramental theology as defined at the Council of Trent. Often these terms appear in a given theological text with little or no translation or explanation. Consecrated Phrases provides that explanation in concise and understandable language. Entries are listed according to the form most likely to be used in the expressions themselves as found in theological writings. Each entry begins with a "literal" translation of the Latin term or phrase and then provides a brief explanation on the theological meaning or significance of the term. While most of the entries contain theological, liturgical, canonical, or philosophical terms primarily from the Roman Catholic tradition, important expressions in the various Protestant traditions are also included, as well as a number of common classical aphorisms, Latin titles of many Church documents, and some common scholarly abbreviations. Consecrated Phrases is a valuable reference for anyone interested in theology at all levels.?For anyone working in Christian theology who lacks this degree of linguistic sophistication, Consecrated Phrases is a welcome desk aid.? Catholic Library World"James Bretzke's Latin theological dictionary should be in every theological student's basic reference library. . . . The definitions are clearly and concisely written and Bretzke uses excellent examples to illustrate some of the more difficult concepts." Robert E. Manning, S.J., President Weston Jesuit School of Theology"This new reference work fills a void as no other theological work has in a very handy, accessible and satisfying way. Students have been asking for a book like this for years. This new dictionary should become a standard resource in every theological student's reference library." Richard M. Gula, S.S. Professor of Moral Theology Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley
