A History of Catholic Moral Theology in the Twentieth by James F. Keenan

By James F. Keenan

this is often an ancient survey of twentieth Century Roman Catholic Theological Ethics (also often called ethical theology). The thesis is that in basic terms via ancient research will we fairly know how the main conservative and adverse box in Catholic theology at the start of the twentieth may well develop into via the tip of the 20 th century the main leading edge one. the twentieth century starts off with ethical manuals being translated into the vernacular. After interpreting the manuals of Thomas Slater and Henry Davis, Keenan then turns to 3 works and a crowning synthesis of innovation all constructed earlier than, in the course of and shortly after the second one global struggle. the 1st via Odon Lottin asks even if ethical theology is satisfactorily historic; Fritz Tillmann asks no matter if it truly is properly biblical; and Gerard Gilleman, no matter if it truly is appropriately religious. Bernard Haering integrates those contributions into his legislations of Christ. in fact, humans like Gerald Kelly and John Ford within the US are like a couple of moralists in different places, classical gate keepers, censoring innovation. yet with Humanae vitae, and successive encyclicals, bishops and popes reject the course of ethical theologians. even as, ethical theologians, like Josef Fuchs, ask no matter if the locus of ethical fact is in non-stop, common teachings of the magisterium or within the ethical judgment of the educated sense of right and wrong. of their stream towards a deeper appreciation in their box as forming consciences, they flip extra deeply to neighborhood adventure the place they proceed their paintings of innovation. each one continent consequently provides upward push to their very own respondents: In Europe they communicate of autonomy and personalism; in Latin the US, liberation theology; in North the USA, Feminism and Black Catholic theology; and, in Asia and Africa a deep post-colonial interculturatism. on the finish I assert that during its nature, theological ethics is historic and cutting edge, looking ethical fact for the judgment of right and wrong by way of trying to communicate crossculturally.
