Scholastic work of Anna Anahit Paitian, A theological biblical research shows that from the Middle Ages in the Roman Catholic Church there had been some additions of words controversial to the modern perceptions, like dedication a prayer verse to "lucifer." Is it a proper name or common ? The researcher compares the Latin text with ancient other texts. Presenting a theological debate.
Today we hear of Liberal Catholics and Conservative Catholics. We hear of Anglican Catholics and Roman Catholics. We hear of Traditionalist Catholics and Conciliarist Catholics. We hear of Old Catholics and New Catholics. One can find all manner of churches today claiming to be the Catholic Church. Jesus Christ founded one Church, which we know as the Catholic Church. And so just where is this Church? We know that Jesus Christ founded His Church to last until the end of time somewhere on earth. True, it will have its ups and downs. Consider the Arian heresy, when the world groaned and found itself Arian rather than Catholic. And yet the Catholic Church survived and restored herself. The Church has suffered through two schisms. The Eastern Schism produced the Orthodox Church, which remains until this day. The Western Schisms saw a time of two men claiming to be Pope and then three. After forty years of confusion, the Council of Constance was able to obtain the resignation of two of the claimants and the deposition of the third. Then it produced a single Pope to restore order to the Church.And today with all kinds of people claiming to be Catholic, just who are and who are not the Catholics? In order to answer that question this work simply presents the teaching of the Catholic Church on her constitution from two separate sources. The first is taken from 'Exposition of Christian Doctrine' by a seminary professor. This was originally published in 1894 for the use of catechists. In the appropriate places quotes from more recent Encyclicals and the Code of Canon Law have been added.After this, the article on this article of the Creed has been taken from the Roman Catechism, also known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent. No conclusions have been drawn. This work is merely presented to enable people to find the Catholic Church.
At the beginning of the new millennium, the Christian Churches are in a process of renewal. The Roman Catholic Church, since Vatican II, has been in a major stage of renewal. Contemporary globalization, multi-cultural interrelationships, and inter-religious dialogues have presented serious challenges to these renewal efforts. In this volume, I want to offer to the Catholic Renewal and from there to other denominational renewals, a view of the church from the rich tradition of Franciscan philosophy and theology. To date there are a only a few books which include small essays on this theme. This volume presents an in-depth Franciscan approach to ecclesiology.
This little book easily fits in your pocket, but it answers all the important questions about what we believe. A bestseller since it was introduced, it also includes a treasury of prayers, a closer look at the Mass, and a brief manual for confession. Makes a perfect gift for a new convert.
A Sketch History of the Apostolic Church is a brief but informative overview of the early Christian Church.
