Summary In this book, the authors, both Catholic historians, challenge the secular bias that faith traditions have no legitimate role in the study of the past, and argue for the compatibility of faith and reason in historical studies. They first critically examine both the internal contradictions and the enduring faith commitments of secular objectivity, then proceed to explore various traditions of Catholic historical thinking capable of synthesizing the technical advances of modern history with distinctly Catholic historical narratives. Their arguments seek to foster a conversation about the ways in which Catholic historians can integrate their faith traditions into their professional work while still remaining open to and engaged with the best of contemporary, non-Catholic thinking and writing about history.--Publisher.
