    The Vatican-China Agreement

    The Vatican-China Agreement

    In 2018, the Vatican announced it had made a diplomatic agreement with the People's Republic of China, in the hopes that it would lead to formal recognition by both parties. The intervening years have seen an intensification of the Chinese government's policy of "Sinicization," of forcing religious and ethnic groups to adapt their beliefs, institutions to Chinese communism. In this bonus episode, we will provide some background on relations between the Holy See and the People's Republic of China since its inception in 1945, and assess the agreement in light of that history.

    The Church & the Baroque

    The Church & the Baroque

    Ever wonder why Catholic churches got "wreckovated" in the 1960s? The answer is complicated, but one reason has to do with a style of art that flourished in the 17th century: the Baroque. In this episode we will dive into where the art of the baroque came from and why liturgical reformers tried to purge "baroque" elements from the liturgy.

    Conciliarism

    Recently, the Vatican has announced the commencement of a world-wide "Synod on Synodality" in which local churches will participate. In light of this, we are bringing you a bonus episode, in which we take a brief look at the doctrine and history of the conciliarist movement, the idea that ecumencial councils should govern the church rather than popes.

    The Traditionalist Movement, Episode 2: "Disobedient People," 1964-1974

    The Traditionalist Movement, Episode 2: "Disobedient People," 1964-1974

    In this episode, we recall the history of lay men and women's efforts to  preserve the old Roman liturgy from suppression in the aftermath of the  Second Vatican Council. From the growth of such lay movements as Una Voce International, we examine the response of those laymen attached to the old rite to the promulgation of the new missal, and the attempts to end the celebration of the older rite.
