Celibacy as Political Resistance

All Current Features

Celibacy as Political Resistance — This essay by Grant Kaplan at St. Louis University discusses a two kingdoms view for Christian peculiarity, papal primacy, and clergy celibacy advanced in the 19th century.  Agree or disagree, this account prompts reflection on the church’s strategies for in-reach and outreach. (Spiritual descendants of Stephan and Walther may find the German history interesting.)
