About this Item

Have many copies available; 11 pages pages; An account of Bishop Josip Strossmayer (1815-1905) at the Vatican I Council of 1870, from which we quote: "At the Vatican Council he was one of the most notable opponents of papal infallibility, and distinguished himself as a speaker. The pope praised Strossmayer's 'remarkably good Latin. A speech in which he defended Protestantism made a great sensation' ". After the Council Strossmayer maintained his opposition longer than all the other bishops and kept up a connection with Johann J. Ignaz von Dollinger" the greatest Roman Catholic historian in Germany. Bishop Strossmayer returned to his diocese under much pressure to recant and declare submission to the pronouncements of Vatican I. "I'd rather die," he protested in a letter of 1871, "than go against my conscience mid convictions." However, with intolerable pressure from Rome, and the denial of the most basic spiritual rights to his people, he made peace with Pope Pius IX in 1875. Bookseller Inventory # 66720
