Scripture & Tradition: Leo XIII

Instead of working on Chapter Three of my thesis, I've been having a good combox discussion on the relationship between tradition and scripture with a Protestant fellow over at Midwest Conservative Journal.

In thinking about my responses, I ran across Providentissimus Deus written by Pope Leo XIII and issued in 1893.

Good stuff.  Check it out.

    Not only should you read Providentissimus, but also Divino afflante (Pius XII, a. d. MDCCCXLIII) and a speech by Cardinal Ratzinger in New York in 1988 "Biblical Interpretation in Crisis." But they are enough for one day.

    I don't know.

    I can only handle so much of a good time.

    It might to seem like inordinate whoopie that was cause for guilt.

    I think I'll stick to Cormac McCarthy. Or read ONE of those things...

    It's great to know SOMEONE is doin' the heavy lifting.
