Part 15 - The Spanish Civil War - Part 1 of 2

The Spanish Civil War, in an intellectual sense, was the great political event of the Twentieth Century. Representatives of every possible political and social position produced by the modern world were all present and active contestants in the conflict raging from 1936-1939. So were the supporters of all groups that opposed them as well. Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro offers a detailed discussion of this microcosm of modern history, involving monarchists of various kinds, Catholics, Falangists, nationalists, Basque and Catalan separatists, liberals, masons, democrats, socialists, anarchists, Marxists, Trotskyites, and Nihilists. 

Part 16 - The Spanish Civil War - Part 2 of 2

The Roman Catholic Church suffered badly at the hands of the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War. Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro pays great attention to the heroic price paid by the clergy and the faithful laity; a price which has been ignored in recent decades. 

Part 17 - Gerard Manley Hopkins and the Problem of Modern Poetry

 Dr. David Allen White's talks on Catholicism and modern poetry and literature begins with this lecture on Hopkins. Hopkins' genius in using innovative means to relate eternal truths is underlined. 

Part 18 - The Leaden Echo and The Golden Echo - A Reading of Poems by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Dr. David Allen White continues his discussion of Hopkins on the combination of tradition with innovation by reading and commenting on selections of his various poems. 

Part 19 - Twentieth Century Philosophy - From Phenomenology to Existentialism

 The Twentieth Century has witnessed the battle of all philosophies and anti-philosophies at one and the same time. Father Richard Munkelt presents a kaleidoscope of contemporary philosophical schools, ranging from those of Phenomenology and Existentialism to those which have given new life to older western approaches to the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. 

Part 20 - The Life of Edith Stein

Edith Stein was converted to Christianity through both her phenomenological studies and her inspiration by St. Teresa of Avila. Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand discusses her intellectual formation, her life as a Carmelite, her treatment of the female soul, and her tragic death. 

Part 21 - Dietrich von Hildebrand: The Soul of a Lion -Part 1 of 2

Dietrich von Hildebrand was an inspiration for many traditionalist Catholics. Here, Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand discusses his formation, his conversion, his concern for phenomenology, his Christocentric vision, and his fight against everything that sought to disrupt the hierarchy of values by looking towards other models before that offered by the Word made flesh. 

Part 22 - Dietrich von Hildebrand: The Soul of a Lion-Part 2 of 2

Dietrich Von Hildebrand was a hero in the battle for Catholic Tradition in the wake of the catastrophe following Second Vatican Council. But he was also a political hero in the fight against Nazism as well. Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand discusses both forms of his heroism in these two lectures.

 Part 23 - The Problem of Anglican Orders

Mr. Michael Davies gives the history of the Anglican Ordinal from Thomas Cranmer to Leo XIII. Even though prominent Catholic prelates treat Anglican ministers as if they were priests, Anglican orders are as invalid today as when Leo XIII condemned them. One of the first and most tempting ecumenical efforts of the modern world was that which sought to bring High Anglicanism and Roman Catholicism together. Michael Davies explores in this talk the seductive character of the Anglican Orders arguments, the Church's efforts to understand what could and could not be accepted in them, and Leo XIII's reasons for rejecting those in favor of recognizing the Anglican “priesthood.”

Part 24 - Lead Kindly Light - The Life of John Henry Newman

Mr. Michael Davies gives a biography of the illustrious English convert John Henry Newman. Newman started the Tractarian Movement, later referred to as the Oxford Movement, which began a tide of English conversions to the True Faith. John Henry Newman's whole work involved a study of the way in which the unchanging Truth and developing knowledge interacted. Michael Davies discusses Newman's life and achievement, illustrating how he provides a model for serious, pious Catholic work in the contemporary world which is modern and not modernist.  

Part 25 - Partisans of Error - The Heresy of Modernism

Mr. Michael Davies treats here in detail of the turn of the century Modernist movement. While he admits that some of the reaction to the Modernists struck at men and ideas which ought not to have been chastised, he nevertheless shows that real Modernism is a totally unacceptable and truly dangerous rejection of the very idea of the supernatural. He also recounts the battle of Pius X with Modernism. 

Part 26 - Catholic Comic Prose - Waugh, O'Connor, Percy

Serious artists have always understood the role of both tragedy and comedy as the two essential sides of the dramatic coin. The twentieth century can sometimes seem to have little comic value to it. Nevertheless, Catholic writers have been able to see the comic and work with it in our age. It is their work that Dr. David Allen White illuminates here. 

Part 27 - Conjuring Up the Image - The Power of the Visual in the Twentieth Century

The twentieth century and twentieth century media have placed a tremendous emphasis upon "seeing things." Dr. David Allen White explores the question of how this concept in general and the cinema in particular can help or hurt the search for the eternal Truth, incarnated by the Word.
