Loisy’s Mystical Faith: Loisy Leo XIII and Sabatier on Moral Education and the Church

[The author examines the response to educational reforms in France at the end of the 19th century by Pope Leo XIII, modernist Alfred Loisy, and liberal Protestant Auguste Sabatier. He argues that Loisy resembled Sabatier more than Leo in his specific reactions to these educational reforms, but that he also exhibited a “mystical faith” in the Church which clearly differentiated his thought from Sabatier’s.]
