Excerpt

unterwühlt selbst in Österreich, Italien und Spanien und die ungeheuren Anstrengungen, die gemacht werden, die aufrecht zu erhalten, sind nutzlos. Die Presse ist frei und sogar dem Papsttum treusten Regierungen sind von der öffentlichen Meinung gezwungen worden, die Wissenschaft gewähren zu lassen, und selbst in die Notwendigkeit versetzt, die Anmaßungen der Pfaffen zu bekämpfen.

Unsere Aufgabe ist es, die errungenen Vorteile zu benützen, und der zweckmäßigste Weg dazu, das Wissen unter dem Volk zu verbreiten und vor allem danach zu streben, den Pfaffen mit und ohne Tonsur die Erziehung der Jugend aus den Händen zu winden.

Wohl weiß ich, dass die protestantischen orthodoxen Pfarrherren ebenso fanatisch sind, wie die dummgläubigen Mönche, und dass sie, wenn sie die Macht hätten, ihre despotischen Gelüste zu befriedigen, dies mit ähnlichen Mitteln tun würden, wie sie die römische Kirche gebrauchte; allein

Reviews

Average Rating of 4 from 1 reviews: ****

Corvin, as a German radical deeply involved in in the 1848 revolution directed this work against the reactionary influence of the Roman Catholic Church. The work is a historical survey dealing with the various vices and power-grabs issuing from the Vatican from its onset to Corvin\'s time. Of particular contemporary interest is his lengthy examination of the ill effects of clerical celibacy, not the least being its expression in the long and hidden issue of widespread child molestation. The work is not always as carefully documented as might be wished, but there are enough citations and quotations to prove his point.
