Review

aOlin sustains his point that there is a distinction to be made between the spontaneous currents of reform within the Church and the reaction to the Protestant Reformation. The selections are brilliantly chosen and ably translated.a

Format: Paperback
Olin collects together several important documents pertaining to the sixteenth century Reformation of "the old Church" that became the Roman Catholic Church. Too often Catholics are not interested in the Reformation, seeing it as a time when the Church split. But as someone once pointed out to me, the questions that were raised during the sixteenth century in Europe were answered in a specific way by "the old Church" and helped to define what the Catholic Church would become. Olin's collection of works from the period, some of which are newly translated into English, clearly show that "the old Church" was aware of the need for reform and points out the steps taken by Christians to save the blessed Church which they loved and to which they remained faithful.

Format: Paperback
In this book Fordham professor John Olin presents the english translation of certain sermons, council addresses, and other documents from bishops and lay people alike that show that a reformation of the Church was already well under way decades before the 95 theses. You can feel the pain of Christians sounding the alarm, pleading for conversion, and insisting that the reader "stand fast: and hold the traditions, which you have learned" and condemn the laxity that had crept into the clergy. This proved enlightening as I was only aware of one side of the story - that the reformation really began in Wittenburg in 1517. This compilation of documents, for me, gave the eery experience of reading the prophets of the Old Testament. Like those prophets, these did not revolt against the Church, but instead, insisted on reform from the inside out.
