Abstract:

The History of Dogmas is the most important work of Joseph Tixeront (1856-1925), the internationally recognized Sulpician Theologian and patrologist. He authored a wide range of erudite books, monographs and articles in the French Catholic tradition of systematic and rigorous historical scholarship. His great contribution to the faith was the formation of an objective understanding of the history of Christian doctrine, traced back to its biblical and patristic origins. it is impossible to exaggerate the value of Tixeront's History of Dogmas for a balanced grasp of the Church's teachings on all the fundamental truths of the Catholic faith. This work analyzes these truths in their historical context from the New Testament through the last of the Fathers in the eighth century. Three crucial concepts are demonstrated: That the Catholic faith has remained essentially unchanged since the time of Christ to the present day ; That there nevertheless has been a marvelous development of doctrine fulfilling Christ's prophecy, "When the spirit of truth comes He will lead you to the complete truth."(John 16:13 ; That this continuity and development of Christian doctrine has been possible only because of the Roman Catholic Church, of which the Bishop of Rome is the visible head. The History of Dogmas is indispensable for all priests, religious, catechists and laity concerned with an orthodox presentation of doctrinal questions. It is written in a smooth, easily readable style and has a wealth of information not available in any other contemporary publication. Superbly faithful to the Magisterium and based on a lifetime of devoted research by one of the greatest scholars in Modern times, the History of Dogmas has achieved a rightful place among the classics of Catholic scholarship.
