Product Description

A consecrated phrase refers to an expression that is used, often in a shorthand manner, to express a certain theological position or thought, such as ex opere operato, that expresses a significant position of Roman Catholic sacramental theology as defined at the Council of Trent, or finis operantis, which refers to the importance of the intention of the person ("the agent") in evaluating moral actions. Often these terms appear simply in a given theological text and little effort is made either to translate or to explain these terms. The aim of this dictionary is to compile, translate, and briefly explain these latin consecrated phrases, which are found with frequency in theological writings.

Publisher's Description

Designed to give readers a simple but accurate idea of a Latin expression, this dictionary compiles, translates, and briefly explains the phrases found in theological writings and canon law that may puzzle readers unfamiliar with Latin or the theological meaning and nuances of these terms.

Consecrated phrases refer to expressions which are used, often in shorthand manner, to express a certain theological position or thought, which express a significant position of Roman Catholic sacramental theology as defined at the Council of Trent. Often these terms appear in a given theological text with little or no translation or explanation. Consecrated Phrases provides that explanation in concise and understandable language.

Entries are listed according to the form most likely to be used in the expressions themselves as found in theological writings. Each entry begins with a literal" translation of the Latin term or phrase and then provides a brief explanation on the theological meaning or significance of the term. While most of the entries contain theological, liturgical, canonical, or philosophical terms primarily from the Roman Catholic tradition, important expressions in the various Protestant traditions are also included, as well as a number of common classical aphorisms, Latin titles of many Church documents, and some common scholarly abbreviations.

Consecrated Phrases is a valuable reference for anyone interested in theology at al levels. James T. Bretzke, SJ, is an assistant professor of fundamental Christian ethics at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley.

Editorial Reviews

James Bretzke's Latin theological dictionary should be in every theological student's basic reference library. . . . The definitions are clearly and concisely written and Bretzke uses excellent examples to illustrate some of the more difficult concepts.

Robert E. Manning, S.J., President, Weston Jesuit School of Theology

This new reference work fills a void as no other theological work has in a very handy, accessible and satisfying way. Students have been asking for a book like this for years. This new dictionary should become a standard resource in every theological student's reference library.
Richard M. Gula, S.S., Professor of Moral Theology, Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley

For anyone working in Christian theology who lacks this degree of linguistic sophistication, Consecrated Phrases is a welcome desk aid.

    An excellent treatment of the subject of Latin religious statements (declarations) and their definitions; the binding is sound and made of actual cloth. There is no pronounciation guide, and so it would be well suggested that one first be aquainted with Latin phonology. It really is a nice book overall.
