About the book


The Mariology of the 20th century got a decisive stimulus by the movement for the dogmatic definition of Mary’s social function as “Mediatrix of all Graces.” Gloria Falcão Dodd gives a synthetic, historical overview of the development from 1896 until the proclamation of the Marian chapter of “Lumen gentium” in 1964. She also analyzes the theological arguments for and against the dogmatic definition. Her very useful work is indispensable for anyone who wants to receive the most recent basic information about the most disputed topic of modern Mariology.
- Rev. Dr. Manfred Hauke

Erudite and accessible Review by Catherine O'Brien
Quality
Value
Price
This book has the distinction of being both erudite and accessible. While academics will appreciate the scrupulous research, the copious material will be of value to anyone interested in the controversies surrounding the proposal for a dogmatic definition of the Virgin Mary’s mediation of grace. Focusing on the period 1896-1964 (thus ending with the publication of Lumen Gentium), the author admirably fills a significant gap in existing literature. A detailed examination of the history of the proposed doctrine is followed by a thorough exploration of the arguments put forward by both supporters and opponents. The extensive Bibliography testifies to the dedicated scholarship that has underpinned this most impressive study. (Posted on 8/24/13)
