These essays examine papal teaching authority from Thomas Aquinas in the thirteenth century to the Dominican School of Salamanca in sixteenth-century Spain. Fr. Ulrich Horst, O.P., an internationally renowned authority in historical theology, describes the various debates between the Dominicans and other orders over papal teaching authority, especially whether there should be limits placed on papal authority and, if so, what they might be. Horst reviews in a brief and masterful fashion the teaching of medieval and Catholic Reformation Dominican theologians about the teaching authority of the pope. He succinctly shows the differences within the order on the topic and makes clear how Dominicans tended to differ on the matter from theologians of other orders such as the Franciscans and, later, the Jesuits, whose views would eventually lead to the proclamation at Vatican I. In the first chapter, Horst discusses the canonization of St. Thomas, the lecture on the Gospel of St. Matthew, and Summa Theologiae II - II, q. 1, art. 10. Horst then examines the road to conflict under Pope John XXII and the position of a number of the Dominican theologians, such as Hervaeus Natalis, John of Naples, and Guido Terreni. In the last chapter, Horst brings to light the contributions of Francisco de Vitoria, Dominicus Soto, Melchior Cano, and Juan de la Pena, among others. Despite his distinguished career as a medievalist, little of Horst's imposing scholarly corpus has been translated into English. These lectures, then, mark an introduction of this formidable scholar to a wider audience. In addition to students of medieval theology and intellectual history, and of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Catholic theology, this book should appeal to those interested in ecclesiology in general.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Looking long and steadily at another human being through one's own distorting lenses is not merely difficult, it is often downright impossible--but the endeavor provides ample material for dramatic storytelling. The characters . . . here play out their approach/avoidance maneuvers in various, sometimes bizarre ways. Whether exemplary, run-of-the-mill, or cautionary figures, they all demonstrate how tortuous and exhilarating it is to acknowledge that other people actually do exist."--Georgia Review
." . . One of the best expositions of the history of the doctrine of infallibility to emerge in the last five years, ranking it with the works of Brian Tierney or Francis Oakley. . . . This is an example of a mature scholar in absolute command of his subject matter. It will be highly valuable for church historians, graduate, and seminary libraries."--Catholic Library World
"Without exception, these 10 stories are compulsively readable, incisive and smart. . . . Stanton . . . is a smooth writer, one whose pieces stab quickly to the heart, reveal an essential truth about human nature and neatly . . . flit out."--Chicago Tribune
"Ten darkly funny short stories that prove to be unpredictable, smart, and lively. . . . "--Ploughshares
"In this collection of finely wrought short stories, Stanton, a professor at Indiana University, displays her keen ability to capture characters who are outwardly unnoticeable but yield unexpected complexities upon closer inspection. Readers will be captivated by these lyric and poignant stories."--Booklist
"A sensitive and amusing new collection. . . . "--Kirkus Reviews
