Product Overview

This collection of essays provides a small revolution in the study of Roman Catholic Modernism, a movement that until now has been largely seen as an episode that underscored institutional Catholicisms isolation from the mainstream intellectual currents of the time. By recasting the provincial story within a transatlantic intellectual-cultural frameworkthat is, the French Catholic Modernists reception of the pragmatism of William James, the towering giant of American intellectual lifethe present volume turns a confessional Catholic episode into a broadly catholic one. It explains precisely why Modernism was a rather universal phenomenon, finding expression in non-Christian religions, Russian Orthodoxy, and mainline Protestant denominations as well as in Roman Catholicism.
