Blaise Pascal : reasons of the heart by Marvin Richard O'Connell( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography by Marvin R. O'Connell captures Pascal's life and times with a chronological narrative based on the published sources and Pascal's own works. From Pascal's early life as a child prodigy already experimenting in physics at the age of ten to his adult years as one of Europe's leading intellectuals, O'Connell takes readers on an eloquent journey into Pascal's world, showing them the passion that drove the man and the radical spirituality he sought in his own heart. In the process, O'Connell also illumines the social, political, and religious intrigue of seventeenth-century Paris, especially the winner-take-all struggle between the Jesuits and the Jansenists, with whom Pascal himself was allied
Critics on trial : an introduction to the Catholic modernist crisis by Marvin Richard O'Connell( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here for the first time, the compelling story of the Catholic Modernists is presented as a chronological narrative of events, with special emphasis placed upon the persons involved, their interrelations and opinions. Through a study of the participants, Marvin O'Connell traces the emergence of Modernism and the controversies related to it, offers a careful examination of the movement's multiple causes and ramifications, and places the events within the political, social, and intellectual context of the time."--BOOK JACKET. "Rather than analyze the phenomenon called Catholic Modernism or argue one side or the other, the author tells the story of the Modernists themselves. These intellectuals - scripture scholars, philosophers, apologists, priests, and laypersons - were bound together by a mutual concern that the Church could not survive the challenges of the modern world unless it brought its teaching and its constitution into line with contemporary thought. They offered unconventional solutions to the religious questions of the day, solutions they were convinced would reform and revivify their church."--Jacket
Edward Sorin by Marvin Richard O'Connell( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers the definitive account of the life and labors of Edward Sorin, founder of the University of Notre Dame. Born in the west of France in 1814, Sorin was ordained in 1838 and joined the newly founded Congregation of Holy Cross shortly thereafter. In 1841, Father Sorin, along with six Holy Cross brothers, was sent to establish a mission in Indiana. After a year's service in the Vincennes diocese's fledgling parochial schools, Sorin was offered a tract of land in the diocese's northern-most section - on the condition that a college be situated there. Father Sorin and his companions arrived at the lakeside property, located near the south bend of the St. Joseph River, in November 1842." "The next year, the state of Indiana granted a charter to what Sorin proudly and reverently called the University of Notre Dame du Lac. In its early days, Father Sorin's "university" was composed of a few log shacks and a handful of half-educated brothers, only a few of whom could speak English. There was no money and hardly any students." "Edward Sorin is a history of the man who overcame great odds to found and grow one of the world's premier Catholic institutions of higher learning."--Jacket

Pilgrims to the northland : the Archdiocese of St. Paul, 1840-1962 by Marvin Richard O'Connell( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first narrative history of the Archdiocese of St. Paul, from 1840 to 1962. Historian Marvin R. O'Connell brings to life the extraordinary labors and accomplishments of the French priests who came to the upper midwest territory during the first half of the nineteenth century. Over the next fifty years a flood of settlers, primarily Irish and German Catholics, filled up the land. In 1850 Rome created a new diocese centered in the village of St. Paul, and in 1851 French priest Joseph Cretin was named its first bishop." "O'Connell's lively account stresses the social, economic, and political context in which the Catholic Church in Minnesota grew and evolved. He vividly illuminates the personalities of the bishops who followed Cretin, Thomas Grace (1859-84) and John Ireland (1884-1918). Ireland's successors, Austin Dowling (1919-30) and John Gregory Murray (1931-56), were not as colorful as Ireland, although Murray was immensely popular. William Brady is the final archbishop covered in this book, serving from 1956 to 1961, when he died unexpectedly from a heart attack. O'Connell ends his narrative in 1962, soon after the death of Archbishop Brady and a few months before the first session of Vatican II."--Jacket
