The School of Compassion: a Roman Catholic theology of animals    Deborah M Jones    NEW

Bookmark and Share

The author engages with the Catholic Church’s contemporary attitude towards animals. In the first part she explores the history of the Church’s ideas about animals, the second part forensically examines the Catechism of the Catholic Church's four paragraphs which relate particularly to animals, and finally major contemporary issues are raised. Themes emerge, such as the renewal of creation in the apocryphal legends, in the Desert Fathers, and in Celtic monasticism. The spirituality of St Francis of Assisi, the legal status of animals, and liturgies of the Eastern Catholic Churches are also looked at for the light they shed on the Church’s thinking. "What Dr Deborah Jones has discovered is a remarkably more complex, infinitely richer, and considerably more animal-friendly Catholic tradition than might be supposed by the usual caricatures. This book is the fullest systematic treatment of the moral status of animals within the Roman Catholic tradition.It is the result of painstaking scholarship, wide reading, and, most of all, insightful theological exploration. It ... provides a stream of fresh perspectives on our lives with God’s other creatures. It is a deeply Catholic work, and I pray that it strikes a deep chord within the Catholic community.” - Revd Professor Andrew Linzey
