Description

This biography of Adrian Fortescue presents an insightful look at a man, now perceived as an icon of Catholic traditionalism, facing a crisis of conscience over his affiliation with Liberal Catholicism and objections towards the intellectual conservatism of the papacy. The Latin Clerk thus reveals an interesting discord in Edwardian culture between theological doctrine and secular developments, and also reflects frequent tensions existing within the Roman Catholic Church of today, making the inner conflics of Fortescue pertinent to modern society. Not only will this book be of interest to historians and theologians, but it will also appeal to students of the Eastern Churches. Through a presentation of Fortescue’s extensive work as an Orientalist and Liturgist, the reader may explore the riches of the ancient Eastern Churches, the Greek Fathers, and the history of the liturgy.
