"This book speaks about a battle which lasted a lifetime and about the courage of a believer concerned about the honor of the Church." So begins this fascinating and informative look at the life and work of Father Marie-Joseph Lagrange (1855-1938), a courageous and devoted scripture scholar and founder of the Ccole Biblique in Jerusalem. Fr. Lagrange, taking into account new knowledge acquired from historical, linguistic, archelogical, and other resources, brought a whole new light to the study of the Bible, and struggled to have the historical/critical interpretation accepted by the Catholic Church. However, this being the era of the Modernist crisis, he was criticized and harassed by conservative elements in the church. Steadfastly loyal to the faith and the church, Fr. Lagrange pursued his studies very much attached to the Church, while advancing the state of biblical studies.

Fr. Montagnes is archivist of the Dominicans in Rome and Toulouse (the latter is his home province). He has published works both in philosophy and in original archival church history. He produced for the Vatican, in support of the beatification of Fr. Lagrange, the Positio with full documentation. His biography of Fr. Lagrange is a distillation of that work.
