Product Description

Opus Dei, Focolare, Community of Sant'Egidio, Neocatechumenals, Legionaries of Christ, Communion and Liberation. These are but a few of the most recognizable names in the broader context of the so-called ecclesial movements. Their history goes back to the period following the First Vatican Council, crosses Vatican II, and develops throughout the twentieth century. It is a history that predates and prepares the movements' rise in the last three decades, from John Paul II to Benedict XVI. To learn more about this new face of Catholicism means to grasp the intersection of church, politics, and society as well as the potential development of Catholic evangelicalism in the church of the "New Evangelization."

Publisher's Description

Focolare, Community of Sant’Egidio, Neocatechumenal Way, Legionaries of Christ, Communion and Liberation, Opus Dei. These are but a few of the most recognizable names in the broader context of the so-called ecclesial movements. Their history goes back to the period following the First Vatican Council, crosses Vatican II, and develops throughout the twentieth century. It is a history that prepares the movements’ rise in the last three decades, from John Paul II to Francis. These movements are a complex phenomenon that shapes the Church now more than before, and they play a key role for the future of Catholicism as a global community, in transition from a Europe-centered tradition to a world Church.

Author Bio

Massimo Faggioli is assistant professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, Minnesota). He has written extensively on modern Church history and on the Second Vatican Council. He is the author, among other books, of Vatican II: The Battle for Meaning (Paulist Press, 2012), True Reform: Liturgy and Ecclesiology in Sacrosanctum Concilium (Liturgical Press, 2012), and John XXIII: The Medicine of Mercy (Liturgical Press, 2014).

Editorial Reviews

Massimo Faggioli has become one of the most respected theological interpreters of Vatican II and the battle over its meaning. This new book explores a wider set of issues with a related agenda. How are we to assess the variety of new Catholic movements and their relationship to the legacy of Vatican II? His analysis and findings will undoubtedly shape the future debate.
Bradford Hinze, Fordham University

Massimo Faggioli brings his fresh, creative voice to the much neglected subject of "new ecclesial movements." "Sorting out" movements "intimately intertwined" with "the modern papacy and the contemporary church" requires skills as a theologian and historian, which Faggioli has in abundance. Movements have already transformed Catholicism in Europe and Latin America, and in the future they will either complement or substitute traditional parishes, support or undermine Catholic institutions. Those who wish to understand and share responsibility for the future of Catholicism, in the United States and elsewhere, would do well to consider Faggioli's nuanced assessment of these mostly Euro-centered movements.
David J. O'Brien, College of the Holy Cross (Emeritus)

Faggioli offers a highly sophisticated analysis of the new ecclesial movements while telling the story of the Catholic Church over the past one and a half centuries. His international perspective informs his use of methods that are historical, sociological, and theological. This book stands in a category of its own among works on this subject.
Dennis M. Doyle, Professor of Religious Studies, University of Dayton
