The Catholic Educational Tradition Between The Pinchers Of The Classical And Political Liberal Educational Ideals, Edward Papa Sep 2009

The Catholic Educational Tradition Between The Pinchers Of The Classical And Political Liberal Educational Ideals, Edward Papa

Presidential Seminar on the Catholic Intellectual Tradition

In this paper Edward Papa propose a brief investigation of the main questions which arise when one places the Catholic Intellectual Tradition in battle with its most important opponents. There are two main opponents of the Catholic educational tradition. Pressing from the one side is the classical educational ideal of the ancient Greeks. Bearing in from the other is the contemporary liberal educational ideal.


Protestant Observers Of Vatican Ii: A Bibliography, Peter Gavin Ferriby Sep 2009

Protestant Observers Of Vatican Ii: A Bibliography, Peter Gavin Ferriby

Presidential Seminar on the Catholic Intellectual Tradition

This bibliography is a working draft, insofar as no authoritative bibliography of observers (whether as formal periti or informally invited scholars) exists at this time.

An additional difficulty is conclusively to identify particular writers as Protestant Christians. For example, newspaper and other media reporters might have been formally Protestant (whether closely affiliated or distantly related), but did not identify their writings or observations as relevant to or influenced by any Protestant point of view. As a result, this bibliography lists entries whose authors in some sense identified themselves as Protestants, or representing the viewpoints of Protestant churches and organizations.

Lucille Clifton's Mercy, Angela Dipace Sep 2009

Lucille Clifton's Mercy, Angela Dipace

Presidential Seminar on the Catholic Intellectual Tradition

In Mercy, Clifton situates herself and the reader amid the terror of September 11, 2001, and excavates from this horrific tragedy a sign of redemptive liberation. Clifton's most sensitive readers also point to the affirmative tone of her poetry which sustains and uplifts what otherwise might be a nihilistic view of life.

In her thirteenth book of published poetry - Mercy (2004), Lucille Clifton encapsulates many concepts which have evolved in nearly four decades of poetry making. Mercy demonstrates Clifton’s consistent and persistent adaptation of various spiritual traditions to arrive - at a vision of interconnectedness between the ordinary and ...

Educators In The Catholic Intellectual Tradition, John L. Elias, Ed., Lucinda A. Nolan, Ed. Jan 2009

Educators In The Catholic Intellectual Tradition, John L. Elias, Ed., Lucinda A. Nolan, Ed.

Sacred Heart University Press Books

This book contains a collection of studies of prominent educators who have made significant contributions to handing on the Catholic intellectual tradition in the United States. These men and women have enriched this tradition by careful attention to educational theories and methods that find their origin in the Jewish and Christian past. Ancient Israel was assiduous in handing on the Torah or Law, the prophets dramatically called people back to the practices of the covenant, and the sages gave practical advice for everyday living. The Acts of the Apostles and the Letters of Paul chronicle the careful attention to safeguarding ...

The Priestly Imagination: Thomas Merton And The Poetics Of Critique, Michael W. Higgins Jan 2009

The Priestly Imagination: Thomas Merton And The Poetics Of Critique, Michael W. Higgins

Mission and Catholic Identity Publications

The article looks at the representation of ideals of the poet-priest in the works of Thomas Merton. It provides an analysis of Merton's poetics of critique. For Merton, John the Baptist represents the model anchorite as well as the first Cisterician and the greatest Trappist. The indivisible and comprehensive dimensions of Merton as a whole man are represented by John the Baptist, John of the Cross and John the Beloved. The two types of Merton's poetics of critique are ecclesial/monastic and societal.

The Catholic Character Of Catholic Universities, Anthony J. Cernera Jan 2009

The Catholic Character Of Catholic Universities, Anthony J. Cernera

Mission and Catholic Identity Publications

The signs of the times, that we are living in the midst of, are dramatic, suggesting perhaps radical challenges, but potentially wonderful opportunities, for humanity and the Church, e.g., globalization; the pervasiveness of secularization in the Western world; the encounter with Islam and the increased importance of inter-religious dialogue; the geographical shift of the center of Catholicism; the scientific-technological revolution; the reality of the poor; and the emerging crisis of global warming are among the most significant.

As the Catholic Church emerges as a truly global church, Catholic universities have an essential role to play in its mission in ...


Religion, Rhetoric, And Running For Office: Public Reason On The Us Campaign Trail, Brian Stiltner, Steven Michels Jan 2009

Religion, Rhetoric, And Running For Office: Public Reason On The Us Campaign Trail, Brian Stiltner, Steven Michels

Government Faculty Publications

It is common, almost expected, for candidates for office in the United States to affirm their religious identity and to employ broad religious themes in support of their political agendas. It is the rare candidate, especially for the Senate or the presidency, who completely eschews religious language due to the pressure and scrutiny of church leaders and advocacy groups with religous and moral agendas.

We want to develop in them the intelligence and compassion needed to ...


"Who Would Believe What We Have Heard?": Christian Spirituality And Images From The Passion In Religious Art Of New Spain, June-Ann Greeley Jan 2009

"Who Would Believe What We Have Heard?": Christian Spirituality And Images From The Passion In Religious Art Of New Spain, June-Ann Greeley

Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies Faculty Publications

The colonial art of New Spain/Mexico provides the viewer with a locus of examination into the robust Christianity that emerged over time out of a native spirituality newly laden with the contours and images from the Old World theology of late medieval/early Catholic Reformation Spain. Franciscan and especially Jesuit missionaries, impelled by a devotional zealotry, championed an apocalyptic vision of hope and suff ering that was well suited for artistic expression. Religious art, whether or not patronized by European colonizers, became an instrument for the missionaries to teach and for the native artists to interrogate religious doctrine, and ...
