The Spirit of Catholicism

The Spirit of Catholicism is a brilliant and influential reflection on the fundamental nature of the Catholic faith. This truly pioneering work of Catholic theology, first published in 1924, has had significant continuing impact on subsequent theology worldwide.

In this seminal resource, Adam revives the Pauline understanding of the Church as the mystical body of Christ, shows how to incorporate new forms of thought in Catholic theology rather than rely exclusively on scholastic language, and envisions the Catholic faith coming to expression within non-Western cultures.
