This is a tale of the clash of two titans: one the shepherd of all Catholics, the other the undisputed leader of academic theologians. It is set against the background of the First Vatican Council, the ousting of liberal thought in the Church and a number of political crises that pushed the papacy to an astounding level of bellicosity. Masterfully narrated, even-handed in its judgments and analyses, and based on a vast amount of archival sources, it is without doubt the new standard work on nineteenth-century Catholicism.
Ulrich L. Lehner, Professor of Religious History and Historical Theology, Marquette University
