The Academic Formation Of Maltese Priests

EdulineSKU: 9789995799762



This is the story of the academic formation of priests in Malta from 1838 to 1938. It is detailed, painstakingly researched, and above all very interesting. It is a remarkably accomplished account with an intense and constant attention to the minutest of detail. It has been reconstructed from a huge mass of archival documentation kept at the PRO in London, Rome, at the Vatican Archives, and at all the accessible archives, church and state, on Malta. Fully equipped with supporting evidence on every single page (the footnotes are themselves a mine of information), it never loses sight of the wider framework. The author succeeds in integrating his themes thoroughly within the broader social context on the island and within the developments both in Europe and in the Catholic Church. There is no doubt that he loves his subject.
