An Avant-garde Theological Generation

The Nouvelle Theologie and the French Crisis of Modernity

Jon Kirwan

Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs

  • Offers insight into the Jesuit theologians and philosophers who comprised the group known the 'Fourvière Jesuits'
  • Constructs a history both sensitive to the wider intellectual, political, economic, and cultural milieu of the French interwar crisis, and that establishes continuity with the Modernist crisis and the First World War
  • Examines the modern French avant-garde generations that have shaped intellectual and political thought in France, providing context for a historical narrative of the Fourvière Jesuits more sensitive to the wider influences of French culture
  • Analyses the influential older generations that flourished from 1893 to 1914, such as the Dreyfus generation, the generation of Catholic Modernists, and two generations of older Jesuits, which were instrumental in the Fourvière Jesuits' development
