This is an historical survey of 20th Century Roman Catholic Theological Ethics (also known as moral theology). The thesis is that only through historical investigation can we really understand how the most conservative and negative field in Catholic theology at the beginning of the 20th could become by the end of the 20th century the most innovative one. This is an historical survey of 20th Century Roman Catholic Theological Ethics (also known as moral theology). The thesis is that only through historical investigation can we really understand how the most conservative and negative field in Catholic theology at the beginning of the 20th could become by the end of the 20th century the most innovative one. The 20th century begins with moral manuals being translated into the vernacular. After examining the manuals of Thomas Slater and Henry Davis, Keenan then turns to three works and a crowning synthesis of innovation all developed before, during and soon after the Second World War. The first by Odon Lottin asks whether moral theology is adequately historical; Fritz Tillmann asks whether it's adequately biblical; and Gerard Gilleman, whether it's adequately spiritual. Bernard Haering integrates these contributions into his Law of Christ. Of course, people like Gerald Kelly and John Ford in the US are like a few moralists elsewhere, classical gate keepers, censoring innovation. But with Humanae vitae, and successive encyclicals, bishops and popes reject the direction of moral theologians.
20th Century Fictional Characterizations of Christ attempts to study the picturisation of Jesus Christ that has emerged in European and American literary and visual art forms in the last century. The focus of attention is on works that feature Christ as a major character. The portrayal of Christ that come under the ambit of this study, differs drastically and at times radically from the Gospel-proclaimed life history of Jesus Christ, which is at the core of institutionalized Christianity and which forms the fundamental religious belief of practicing Christians across the world. The author explores the differences in characteristics of the Christ found in literature/films and the Christ of the Bible, through a delineation of themes like the birth and early life of Christ, his sexuality and crucifixion.
It was not until 1924 that the Trubetskoy Bastion Prison was closed down and converted into a museum - a branch of the Museum of the Revolution. Guided tours were frequently given by former inmates. In 1954 the Trubetskoy Bastion Prison, along with the other buildings in Peter and Paul Fortress, was turned over to the State Museum of the History of Leningrad, and in 1964 it was opened to the public. In 2008, the centenary of the State Museum of the History of Leningrad, the refurbished Trubetskoy Bastion unveiled a new display describing the history and inmates of Russia's principal political prison from the 18th century to the first quarter of the 20th century.
