After several months of building a base floor of contributors, The Josias is now moving full steam ahead with articles, remarks, dubium, and new translations of formerly unavailable texts. (More information on The Josias is available here.) In the past day, two new pieces of interest have gone up.
The first, generously supplied by permission of the Aquinas Institute for the Sacred Doctrine, is taken from St. Thomas Aquinas’s Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard. In it, the Angelic Doctor asks whether heretics should be tolerated.
The second, penned by yours truly, responds to the query, “Is integralism essentially bound up with racism, nationalism, and totalitarianism?” I hope I am not spoiling the surprise when I tell you the answer is, “Negative.” The explanation is laid out in the rest of the piece.
If you have not done so already, make an effort to visit the site and peruse the many excellent resources which are already available. If you have the talent and inclination to contribute, then please do so. And, finally, if you appreciate the contents of The Josias and its mission, do what you can to spread the word. We have no advertising budget; we are disinclined from “branding” ourselves on social media; and above all we hope and pray that if our project is pleasing to God, it will continue to bear good fruit.
