Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Tyrrell's life from 1901 to 1903. After the embarrassed and dishonest avowal on the part of his superiors that there had been no ‘ban’, Tyrrell, now totally disaffected, contributed occasional articles to The Month, but effectively withdrew from Jesuit affairs. All his energy, however, was poured into intellectual work. In this period he wrote two pseudonymous seminal books of religious philosophy. He applied himself to the biblical question. He was a constant resource to those in trouble or need, especially Henri Bremond, whose Jesuit vocation was in ruins.
