The Myth of Pope Joan by Alain Boureau Summary

In the ninth century, a brilliant young woman named Joan disguised herself as a man so that she could follow her lover into the then-exclusively male world of scholarship. She proved so successful that she ascended the Catholic hierarchy in Rome and was eventually elected pope. Her pontificate lasted two years, until she became pregnant and died after giving birth during a public procession from the Vatican. Or so the legend goes—a legend that was fabricated sometime in the thirteenth century, according to Alain Boureau, and which has persisted in one form or another down to the present day. In this fascinating saga of belief and rhetoric, politics and religion, Boureau investigates the historical and ecclesiastical circumstances under which the myth of Pope Joan was constructed and the different uses to which it was put over the centuries. He shows, for instance, how Catholic clerics justified the exclusion of women from the papacy and the priesthood by employing the myth in misogynist moral tales, only to find the popess they had created turned against them in anti-Catholic propaganda during the Reformation.

The Pope Who Said Abortion Is NOT Murder by John McCloskey Summary

"He is not a murderer who brings about abortion before the soul is in the body" said Roman Catholic canon law for over eight hundred years, until 1917 when Pope Benedict XV approved a revised code of canon law. - From the book What began as an investigation into why one pope said an abortion was not murder led to the long history of popes who said so, and to an amazing consequence of that history which persists even today. From review in Conscience, the Newsjournal of Catholic Opinion, Vol. XXXII - No. 1 2011 "Author John McCloskey chronicles his journey to find truth behind the story of Pope Innocent III, who in the early 13th century declared early abortion was not murder. McCloskey's research regarding delayed versus immediate ensoulment, dogmatic language and the search for definitive answers about papal decrees regarding abortion encourages readers to read further."

The New Anti-Catholicism by Philip Jenkins Summary

Anti-Catholicism has a long history in America. And as Philip Jenkins argues in The New Anti-Catholicism, this virulent strain of hatred--once thought dead--is alive and well in our nation, but few people seem to notice, or care. A statement that is seen as racist, misogynistic, anti-Semitic, or homophobic can haunt a speaker for years, writes Jenkins, but it is still possible to make hostile and vituperative public statements about Roman Catholicism without fear of serious repercussions. Jenkins shines a light on anti-Catholic sentiment in American society and illuminates its causes, looking closely at gay and feminist anti-Catholicism, anti-Catholic rhetoric and imagery in the media, and the anti-Catholicism of the academic world. For newspapers and newsmagazines, for television news and in movies, for major book publishers, the Catholic Church has come to provide a grossly stereotyped public villain. Catholic opinions, doctrines, and individual leaders are frequently the butt of harsh satire. Indeed, the notion that the church is a deadly enemy of women--the idea of Catholic misogyny--is commonly accepted in the news media and in popular culture, says Jenkins. And the recent pedophile priest scandal, he shows, has revived many ancient anti-Catholic stereotypes. It was said that with the election of John F. Kennedy, anti-Catholicism in America was dead. This provocative new book corrects that illusion, drawing attention to this important issue.

All About Sex...In the Bible by Alla Peace,John Anderson Summary

All about Sex in the Bible is based exclusively on Biblical quotations, which are related to sexual activity, rules, metaphorical meanings of sexual language, and scientific knowledge on this subject. Traditionally, the Bible viewed as a religious book. Surprisingly, it is overloaded with countless verses on the topic of sexuality, including a description of depravity of God of Old Testament, Patriarchs and Kings, all kind of sexual pleasures and seduction, and cruelty triggered by sexual desire. The book consists special chapters on associated subjects, such as circumcision, Marys virginity, Jesus birthday, analysis of the meaning of whore of Babylon described in Biblical Revelation, and some scientific facts on related issues. In addition, the major chapters are supported by Appendix, which is includes Glossary, Index of Persons, Geographical Glossary, and Bibliography.

History and Polemics in the French Reformation

Pope Joan Pdf/ePub eBook

History and Polemics in the French Reformation by Barbara Sher Tinsley Summary

This work is a story of the Protestant Reformation seen from the viewpoint of a Catholic politician and writer of polemical histories. Raemond was a member of the Bordeaux Parlement (he bought his friend Montaigne's seat) and served as a magistrate in that body until his death in 1601. His histories, frequently cited by European scholars, offer a wealth of sociological detail uncommon to historical works of his era. His books on the mythical female Pope Joan, on the Antichrist, and on the rise and development of Protestantism contain much of interest to modern historians of popular culture or mentalites, especially where radical sectarians are concerned, and for information relating to the earliest beginnings of Calvinism on French soil, about which little has been written. For such subjects Raemond's history remains a valuable primary source. Raemond's significance in European historiography, a study that is attracting renewed attention among scholars, is explored by comparing his views with those of other historians and public figures of his century, both Protestant and Catholic. The first three chapters deal with Raemond's life and literary associations; the fourth with his expose of "Pope Joan." Next follows a consideration of his book on the Antichrist, which, together with the chapter on Joan, offers a survey of many centuries of information and misinformation concerning church history, especially the nature of papal primacy, apostolic purity, and the apocalyptic fears of a variety of writers and theologians. These included Luther, Calvin, Melanchthon, and John Bale, who thought that the pope or the Turk was the Beast of the Book of Daniel. Raemond emerges as a gifted, if exotic, writer peculiarly attuned to the (Catholic) majority opinion of his times, but still capable of some penetrating analyses of the motives and tactics of the Protestant party, its founders, and its defenders. The representativeness of his views and his popularity with his readers make him particularly significant for students of the Reformation and Counter (or Catholic) Reformation. In the not distant past scholars tended to dismiss polemical history as unreliable and hence uninformative. Modern readers who study religious history in the present age of increasing ecumenicism and fluctuating social values may have more patience and tolerance for polemical idealists like Raemond and his Protestant critics. The latter were often as polemical and just as fearful of adjusting to a world in which truth was hotly contended and losers in the contest risked not merely their reputations and livelihoods, but their very lives. The last chapter treats of Raemond's Nachleben, or literary afterlife, and illustrates the dynamics of historical criticism in a period marked - even crazed - by misplaced religious zeal and a near absence of tolerance and historical objectivity.
