The Lux Occulta Archive… February 14, 2011Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics, Religion, The Left.
Another selection of documents from the fascinating Lux Occulta blog and its attendant archive which deals with the Catholic Church in Ireland and its history that will have considerable interest to a wide readership.
There’s the Irish Monthly with an article on the 1st Indochina War that will be of interest, Rev. Con Lucey (later Bishop of Cork and Ross) on ‘A Christian Alternative to Communism and Fascism’. More in the same vein in the pamphlet entitled ‘Communism – A Will O’ The Wisp’. There’s also Bishop Browne’s pastoral on ‘The Worship of the State’, and the Irish Ecclesiastical Record which has, as Shane notes an obscure article on French Revolution on pgs 392-401.
It’s a treasure trove of documents from across the 20th century, that are neatly positioned in terms of time and place.
Shane’s trojan work at Lux Occulta shouldn’t go unnoticed, it’s a genuine resource that is growing on a weekly basis. Well worth a regular look.
