RT @smitf_londonTONIGHT - Word Made Flesh: a #free discussion with renowned theologians + church leaders. Starts at 7pm @SCM_Press… https://t.co/FrPKa9E7JM
Rupert Shortt: If you look at the arguments of the day, it’s essentially that Lux Mundi was in a different key. … It was huge, there were sort of violent riots and things.
Martyn Percy: This is the liberal sea change.
Rupert Shortt: The phrase ‘liberal Catholicism’, which we now use a lot today, finds its heart in Lux Mundi.
Jane Williams: I think Lux Mundi was one of those really influential books at the time, but is it still read?
David Winter: I think it was and is influential if you look at what’s happened to the Church. If you could put a date and say things really changed from then, it was because of Lux Mundi.
Mark Oakley: A book that reminded me that it is possible to want to thank critically and live faithfully at the same time. The liberal catholic balance is to be unafraid to reason and unashamed to adore.
