AMERY, Carl. Capitulation : The Lesson of German Catholicism. Translated byEdward Quinn. (New York) : Herder and Herder, (1967). First Edition. Pp [i ]-xxiii,(1),1-231,(1). 8vo, grey cloth, black lettering to spine. “This book is a case-study. In the laboratory of modern history, Carl Amery tests the hypothesis of collusion and corruption in the relations between the RomanCatholic Church and the government of post-Nazi Germany. The principals in the affair are scrutinized closely, their words are cited at length, their acts are weighed in the balance of Christian ethics, and in the end Church and Churchmen are found wanting. The initial assumption of the experiment is proved valid: the institutional Church cravenly subjected itself to the powers of this world.” (from the dj). Contents : Foreword by Professor J. M. Cameron. 1. Power and powerlessness: The paradox of German Catholicism. 2. German Catholicism and its milieu. 3. The milieu's system of values and virtue. 4. Who capitulated ? 5. 1935-1945: General line and resistance. 6. The War: Patriots and rebels. 7. 1945-1948: Another test, by examples. 8. The minority's new image of the Church. 9. The milieu in the post-war era. 10. Catholicism and its place in the system. 11. A word to the reader. 12. How long before the next capitulation? Epilogue by Heinrich Boll. Very good in spine-sunned, unclipped dustjacket. 35.00
