The Pope and the Professor tells the captivating story of the German Catholic theologian and historian Ignaz von Döllinger (1799-1890), who fiercely opposed the teaching of papal infallibility at the time of the First Vatican Council (1869-70), convened by Pope Pius IX (r. 1846-1878), among the most controversial popes in the history of the papacy. Döllinger's thought, his opposition to the Council, his high-profile excommunication in 1871, and the international sensation that this action caused offer a fascinating window into the intellectual and religious history of the nineteenth century. Thomas Albert Howard examines Döllinger's post-conciliar activities, including pioneering work in ecumenism and inspiring the »Old Catholic« movement in Central Europe. Set against the backdrop of Italian and German national unification, and the rise of anticlericalism and ultramontanism after the French Revolution, ›The Pope and the Professor‹ is at once an endeavor of historical and theological inquiry. It provides nuanced historical contextualization of the events, topics, and personalities, while also raising abiding questions about the often fraught relationship between individual conscience and scholarly credentials, on the one hand, and church authority and tradition, on the other.

    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
