EightPopesAndTherCrisisOfModernityEight Popes and the Crisis of Modernity

Russell Shaw

Assaults on the dignity and rights of the human person have been central to the ongoing crisis of the modern era in the last hundred years.

This book takes a searching look at the roots of this problem and the various approaches to it by the eight men who led the Catholic Church in the twentieth century, from Pope St. Pius X and his crusade against "Modernism" to Pope St. John Paul II and his appeal for a renewed rapprochement between faith and reason.

Thus, it offers an interpretation of recent world events viewed through the lens of an ancient institution, the papacy.

ConciliarOctetConciliar Octet: A Concise Commentary on the Eight Key Texts of the Second Vatican Council

Fr. Aidan Nichols O.P.

In this work Dominican scholar and writer Aidan Nichols maintains that the Council texts must be interpreted in the light of their genesis, not their aftermath.

They must be seen in the light of the public debates in the Council chamber, not the hopes (or fears) of individuals behind the scenes.

On this basis, he provides a concise commentary on the eight most significant documents produced by the Council, documents which cover pretty comprehensively all the major aspects of the Church’s life.
