Show Summary Details


This chapter details the changes in Tyrrell's life following the election of Guiseppe Sarto as Pope Pius X in 1903. As soon as Pius X began his reign, repressive policies began to be prosecuted with much more vigour. Tyrrell pursued an ‘apostleship of protest’, which was at one and the same time a protest against ‘Jesuitism’, against ‘the dogmatic fallacy’, against authoritarianism, against all the suffering, distortion, and inhumanity by which he felt himself surrounded.

Keywords: George Tyrrell; Jesuits; Jesuit priests; religious philosophy; Pope Pius X; authoritarianism
