    Robert Schmuhl
    Subject(s):
    University of Notre Dame -- History -- 20th century, University of Notre Dame -- Presidents -- Biography
    Abstract:

    For over half a century, Robert Schmuhl interviewed and wrote about Reverend Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., who served as the president of the University of Notre Dame from 1952 until 1987. Beginning as an undergraduate student during the 1960s, when he covered Hesburgh and Notre Dame for the Associated Press, to 2014 when he conducted his last visit with the frail ninety-seven-year-old priest, Schmuhl maintained a unique relationship with Father Hesburgh. Over time, Hesburgh’s meetings wi…

    Gilbert C. Meilaender
    Subject(s):
    Adoption (Theology), Adoption--Religious aspects--Christianity, Families--Religious aspects--Christianity

Yet Christians cannot forget that it is adoption, and not simply natural descent, that is at the center of the New Testament’s depiction of God’s grace. Gilbert Meilaender takes up a range of iss…

    Social problems--France, Church and social problems--Catholic Church, Social problems--France--Reims Region, Social reformers--France--Biography, Harmel, LÌ©on, 1829-1915, Catholic Worker Movement
    Abstract:

    Coffey does a masterful job of situating Léon Harmel-his life, his work, his ideology-in the context of French political and social turmoil in the last third of the nineteenth century. More than a Catholic paternalist, Harmel created a model ‘earthly paradise’ for his workers, drawing on principles of utopian socialism to give labor control over the factory environment. Harmel’s effort to lay the groundwork for class conciliation drew praise even from leading Socialists, and his l…
