New book: Modernity and Transcendence

We are happy to note the publication of this new book based on Charles Taylor’s idea of Catholic Modernity, which he expounded in a memorable lecture given to a packed Heythrop College audience in 2014. Anthony J. Carroll, previously Senior Lecturer at Heythrop College, has co-edited the publication with Staf Hellemans, who conducted research also at Heythrop. Six leading authors from diverse backgrounds, David Martin, Bernice Martin, Francis Schüssler Fiorenza, Robert Cummings Neville, Souleymane Bachir Diagne and Jonathan Boyarin assess Taylor’s Catholic modernity idea and probe whether and how the extension to other religious modernities (Anglican, Pentecostal, Confucian, Islamic, Jewish) makes sense or not. Charles Taylor reacts to their considerations and reflects on his own idea 25 years on.
