Since I am currently gnawing my way through the historiography of Late Antiquity, I thought I’d take a quick break to refer you to what I’m sure will be a commendable and highly useful project. Our friends over at The Josias have started a podcast, which will no doubt be a fine resource for anyone wishing to understand a) Catholic Integralism, or b) Neo-Thomistic political theories more generally. Their first episode is chiefly on the Common Good. Give it a listen here.
This morning, I’d like to bring your attention to a new Catholic magazine, Peregrine.
Here’s their mission statement:
Peregrine Magazine is a collaborative project that seeks to think out loud about the practical concerns of living a truly political life according to traditional Catholic social teaching. Our goal is to promote the Common Good through a better understanding of our communities, our nations, and our world.
Those of you following the kerfuffle that has ensued after Spadaro and Figueroa’a article on the alleged political union of American integralists and Evangelicals will no doubt be pleased to know that P. J. Smith has written an excellent introduction to the former over at his blog, Semiduplex. Anyone hoping to achieve a better understanding of integralist theory, and why Spadaro’s assessment is so flawed, would do well to take Smith as his guide.
Very glad to see that Gabriel Sanchez has returned to his original blog, Opus Publicum. It’s required reading for anyone interested in the renewed tradition of Catholic Integralism. Head on over and give it a view.
