9780826429292: A History of Catholic Moral Theology in the Twentieth Century: From Confessing Sins to Liberating Consciences

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. At the same time, moral theologians, like Josef Fuchs, ask whether the locus of moral truth is in continuous, universal teachings of the magisterium or in the moral judgment of the informed conscience. In their move toward a deeper appreciation of their field as forming consciences, they turn more deeply to local experience where they continue their work of innovation. Each continent subsequently gives rise to their own respondents: In Europe they speak of autonomy and personalism; in Latin America, liberation theology; in North America, Feminism and Black Catholic theology; and, in Asia and Africa a deep post-colonial interculturatism. At the end I assert that in its nature, theological ethics is historical and innovative, seeking moral truth for the conscience by looking to speak crossculturally.

Review:

'A History of Catholic Moral Theology in the Twentieth Century is a remarkable achievement. The more I delved into the book the more I was impressed with Keenan's command of the issues and the literature across the globe. He seems to have omitted no one who has had a hand in shaping the development of moral theology, and he masterfully summarizes their core contributions. Footnotes are in abundance and identify significant works in many languages. This is the book for anyone interested in what has happened in moral theology and in who's who among its contributors. It is essential reading for graduate students of moral theology, since much of the history narrated here and the theologicans who have shaped it remain unknown territory to many of today's students.' —Richard M. Gula, S.S, April 5, 2010 (America: The National Catholic Weekly)

Mention in Rassegna Bibliografica Internazionale, 2010.

"Remolding material from a doctoral seminar he taught for 15 years, Keenan introduces students to the intellectual history of 20th-century Catholic moral theology and to the people who developed and debated it. He limits his study to such fundamentals as conscience, sin, love, virtue, and authority, and omits ethical concerns relating to society, sex, medicine, corporations, and the like. His topics are the moral manualists, Odon Lottin initiating reform, Fritz Tillmann and Gerard Gilleman retrieving scripture and charity, Berhard Haring's synthesis, the neo-manualists, for foundations for moral reasoning 1970-89, new foundations for a theological anthropology 1980-2000, and toward a global discourse on suffering and solidarity. A brief afterword reviews the encyclicals of Benedict XVI." - Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.

'Whichever camp you are in this book will provide much food for thought. It touches on many of the burning moral issues that have captivated and divided Catholics over the past several decades and it ends with some optimistic words about the future.' Catholic Herald, 2nd July 2010

"Keenan...writes with the deftness, enthusiasm, and thoroughness one would expect from one of today's most prolific figures in the field....Highly recommended." - Choice

Reviewed in Church Times 17 September (UK)
'This is precisely what it says on the cover: a very thorough and very detailed account of the various developments in moral theology over the last century'

'Keenan's historical presentation is invaluable...helping the reader to enter the conversation and come to a balanced appraisal of the different ways of doing moral theology.' (Theological Book Reviews)

'James F. Keenan has crafted an insightful narrative reflecting the contributions of multiple theologians associated with moral theology during the past century.' (The Catholic Historical Review)
