Slavery and the Catholic Church: The history of Catholic teaching concerning the moral legitimacy of the institution of slavery by John Francis Maxwell



John Francis Maxwell, Slavery and the Catholic Church: The History of Catholic Teaching concerning the Moral Legitimacy of the Institution of Slavery. It is in portable document format . df) made from scans of photocopied pages. It also provides ample material for testing the proposition that official Catholic teaching never changes or, if it does, the change amounts to merely a "development" or explication, but never a reversal, of earlier teaching. Such testing happens to be one of several unintended but happy consequences of my blog, anarcho-catholic.

Whether Church teaching on slavery has changed. Father Joel Panzer writes: The development of over the span of nearly five centuries was occasioned by the unique and illicit form of servitude that accompanied the Age of Discovery. The just titles to servitude were not rejected by the Church, but rather were tolerated for many reasons  . In his 1975 work on slavery, John F. Maxwell wrote that the Church did not correct its teaching on the moral legitimacy of slavery until 1965, with the publication, from the Second Vatican Council, of Gaudium et Spes (The Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World).

During this course on the history of Catholic Moral Theology, we have had to deal with the topic of what can and cannot change within the Catholic Church. This happened to be the title of the primary book that we used for this course. This book, by John T. Noonan, is entitled A Church That Can and Cannot Change: The Development of Catholic Moral Teaching. A theme which Noonan immediately focuses on throughout the book is one which touches many of us deeply, slavery.

This is serious stuff and an excellent in-depth overview of Catholic teaching. This is volume 2 of a 2 volume set (the first Volume does not appear to be in the archive yet at least at this writing). The volumes were published prior to Vatican II so one must read them in that light but if anything it just shows you how the fundamental teachings of the Church have remained the same. It is written at a high level so the reading is challenging. After growing up in the 70's and 80's attending Catholic school all the way through College I never got anything like this and the books held me in rapt attention. They are gems to be kept and treasured. I am so glad to see Volume II on line - thank you archive. org! Please post the first Volume!

Once again the Catholic Church is being accused of another grave scandal. Some people claim that the Church before 1890 was either silent or approved of slavery. It is claimed that no Pope condemned slavery until then. Throughout history, the Church found Herself among cultures practicing slavery and had to deal with it. An early example is St. Paul’s Epistle to Philemon. Now we usually think of slavery in terms of innocent people who were unjustly captured and reduced to "beasts of burden" due solely to their race. This was the most common form in the . before the Thirteenth Amendment.

The Catholic Church is the oldest and largest transgovernmental organization in the world; in particular, Pope Francis’s reign reveals interesting puzzles for international relations. In the social sciences it remains an underestimated and unexplored actor. The Catholic Church in International Relations Literature. Principled Agency in a Worldly Structure: The Constitution of the Church. The Structure of the Church. International Relations Theory and the Church. Norms, Normative and Liberal Approaches. Disputes about the legitimacy of the pope (and at times, various popes simultaneously), the primacy of the pope over secular rulers or vice versa, and an accumulation of earthly power of the pope resulted over time. Indeed, there were times when the Churc. urvived in spite of its popes, and at times it is the people who have safeguarded the faith more than the higher clergy ( Riccards 1998, 314).
