The origin of the name Vaticanus is uncertain; some claim that the name comes from a vanished Etruscan town called Vaticum. Aulus Gelliuswriting in the 2nd century, also said the word Vatican was derived from the word vaticinia, or prophecies, in his Attic Nightsbook 16, chapter
Cannes, April 5, Dear Mr. Creighton, I thank you very sincerely for your letter, which, though dated April 1, is as frank as my review was artful and reserved. The postponement gives me time to correct several errors besides those you point out, if youwill let me have my manuscript out here.
The other will also be the better for leisurely revision. Forgive me if I answer you with a diffuseness degenerating into garrulity. The criticism of those who complained that I attacked the Germans without suggesting a better method seems to me undeserved.
From the Heidelberg school I think there is nothing to learn, and I said so. Perhaps I have been ambiguous sometimes, for you say that appreciation such as yours for the essentials of the Roman system is no recommendation in my eyes.
If that conclusion is drawn from my own words I am much in fault. But that has nothing of importance to do with a critique in the H. And when you say that I am desirous to show how the disruption might have been avoided, I only half recognise myself.
The disruption took place over one particular, well-defined point of controversy; and when they went asunder upon that, the logic of things followed. But they needed not to part company on that particular. It was a new view that Luther attacked. Theological authority in its favour there was very little.
It was not approved by Hadrian VI, or by many Tridentine divines, or by many later divines, even among the Jesuits. Supposing, therefore, there had been men of influence at Rome such as certain fathers of Constance formerly, or such as Erasmus or Gropper, it might well have been that they would have preferred the opinion of Luther to the opinion of Tetzel, and would have effected straightway the desired reform of the indulgences for the Dead.
But that is what set the stone rolling, and the consequences were derived from that one special doctrine or practice.
Cessante causa cessat effectus. Introduce, inthe reforms desired six years later, by the next Pope, demanded by many later divines, adopt, a century and a half before it was written, the Exposition de la Foi, and then the particular series of events which ensued would have been cut off.
For the Reformation is not like the Renaissance or the Revolution, a spontaneous movement springing up in many places, produced by similar though not identical causes. It all derives, more or less directly, from Luther, from the consequences he gradually drew from the resistance of Rome on that one disputed point.
I must, therefore, cast the responsibility on those who refused to say, in ,what everybody had said two centuries before, and many said a century later.
And the motive of these people was not a religious idea, one system of salvation setup against another; but an ecclesiastical one.
They said, Prierias says quite distinctly, that the whole fabric of authority would crumble if a thing permitted, indirectly or implicitly sanctioned by the supreme authority responsible for souls should be given up.
The English disruption proceeded along other lines, but nearly parallel. Nearly the same argument applies to it, and it is not just now the question. I cannot disprove it.
I do not wish to disprove it. But I know nothing about it. We must take things as they really occurred. What occurred is that Luther raised a just objection, that the authority of tradition and the spiritual interest of man were on his side, and that the Catholic divines refused to yield to him for a reason not founded on tradition or on charity.
Therefore I lay the burden of separation on the shoulders of two sets of men—those who, during the Vice chancellorship and the pontificate of Borgia, promoted the theory of the Privileged Altars and indirectly the theory of the Dispensing Power ; and those who, from tosacrificed the tradition of the Church to the credit of the Papacy.
Whether the many reforming rills, partly springing in different regions—Wyclif, the Bohemians before Hus, Hus, the Bohemians after him, the Fratres Communis Vitae, the divines described by Ullmann, and more than twenty other symptoms of somewhat like kind, would have gathered into one vast torrent, even if Luther had been silenced by knife or pen, is a speculative question not to be confounded with the one here discussed.
Perhaps America would have gone, without the help of Grenville or North. My object is not to show how disruption might have been avoided, but how it was brought on.
It was brought on, secundo me, by the higher view of the papal monarchy in spirituals that grew with the papal monarchy in temporals and with much other monarchy. The root, I think, is there, while the Italian prince is the branch.
To the growth of those ideas after the fall of the Councils I attribute what followed, and into that workshop or nursery I want to pry.The Kosher Gourmet by Megan Gordon With its colorful cache of purples and oranges and reds, COLLARD GREEN SLAW is a marvelous mood booster not to mention just downright delish.
On Thursday in daily Mass we finished reading the Sermon on the Mount (Mat ). In it, there is a line describing the reaction of the crowd that day on the slopes of the Mount of Beatitudes. For some time now – years actually – I have pondered the nature of liberty.
Or more specifically, what liberty actually means to me. And to be extra clear, I am not talking about the meaning in abstract or philosophical terms, but tangibly – in much the same way I might answer if . This translation of The Law was done by Dean Russell of The Foundation staff. His objective was an accurate rendering of Mr.
