Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Tyrrell's continued clashes with the Catholic Church. More confidently than ever, Tyrrell entered the fray against the theological rationalism that his experience in the confessional had taught him was doing so much damage to souls. Against the exaltation of the intellect and neglect of the heart, the exaltation of the clergy and neglect of the laity, and the exaltation of the Church and neglect of humanity, he stressed the organic unity of man in his apprehension of God, the organic unity of Catholic doctrine, the Church, the human race, and the whole ‘sentient creation’.
