The Intellectual Crisis in English Catholicism, 1900-1901

ABSTRACT: Project to complete research in England for a monograph on the joint pastoral censuring English liberal Catholicism (December, 1900). A crucial stage in the secularization of western thought occurred in the 19th century with the impact of "scientific" Biblical and historical criticsim; the idea of evolution, philosphical subjectiveism, challenged traditional Christian beliefs. Pastoral was was a response to radical liberal criticisms of the Church. Brought to an end publication of articles critical of the Church and cast a cloud over even the moderate liberals' attempts to reconcile Catholicism with contemporary culture. Seeds of current turmoil in religion is to be found in pre-World War I period; study of Catholic community in England at the beginning of the century provides an important contribution to understanding roots of the current theological perplexities.
