Prominent ethicists from around the globe seek to deepen contemporary understandings of environmental sustainability, human flourishing, and the pursuit of justice. Just Sustainability is a broad-ranging study of the social, economic, and conceptual changes needed on a global level for all of life to flourish in the 21st century. As the play on words in the title suggests, these discussions of sustainability continually invoke the norm of justice, which has become a central part of Catholic thought and magisterial teaching in the contexts of economic development, technological innovation and environmental degradation. In the editors' view, any viable path to sustainability must also be just - whether as norm guiding policy decisions or in the development of a comprehensive ethics of ecology, concepts of justice and sustainability must mutually inform one another in the 21st century. As with previous volumes in the CTEWC series, this book offers the perspectives of scholars from a number of social, ethnic, geographic, and economic backgrounds, making it a truly global contribution to the increasingly pressing conversation around how to care for and live in harmony with our increasingly degraded planet.

This book reconstructs the late Anglo-Saxon history of the church of Worcester, covering the period between Bishops Waerferth and Wulfstan II. Starting with an examination of the episcopal succession and the relations between bishops and cathedral community, the volume moves on to consider the development of the church of Worcester's landed estate, its extension and its organization. These are analysed in connection with the very significant measures taken in the eleventh century to preserve - and sometimes manipulate - the memory of past land transactions. Of paramount importance among such measures was the production of two cartularies - Liber Wigorniensis and Hemming's cartulary - respectively compiled at the beginning and at the very end of the eleventh century. Last but not least, the volume considers ecclesiastical organization and pastoral care in the diocese of Worcester, by looking at the relations between the cathedral church and the other churches in the diocese. Special attention is given to the payment of church dues and to such aspects of pastoral care as preaching, penance and visitation of the sick. Thanks to the combined analysis of these areas, the book offers a detailed picture of the main occupations (and preoccupations) of the late Anglo-Saxon church of Worcester in its interaction with society at large: from its tenants to its faithful, from the clergy in its diocese to its opponents in land disputes.

Recent years have seen a shift in the belief that a religious world-view, specifically a Christian one, precludes a commitment to environmentalism. Whether as "stewards of God's creation" or champions of "environmental justice", church members have increasingly found that a strong pro-ecology stand on environmental issues is an integral component of their faith. But not all Christian denominations are latecomers to the issue of environmentalism. In this text, supported and produced by the Mennonite Church, Calvin Redekop and his co-authors explain the unique environmental position of the Anabaptists. In rural Amish and Mennonite communities, the authors explain, the environment - especially the land - is considered part of the Kingdom that God will establish on Earth. Creation and human history are thus seen as completely interdependent.

Inspired by Lorenzo Milani's (1923-1967) biography, this book takes different trajectories in promoting and problematizing peace, and confirming the complex and multifaceted nature of the struggle for authentically peaceful social relations. The chapters range from the struggle over the creation of memories to repositioning peace artifacts within museums, from rewriting history textbooks to exposing the limits of peace programs, and interrogating symbolic violence to exposing real violence in different contexts. Borg and Grech explore the Catholic Church in the post-internet world, and form an understanding of peace and community through Milani's works. This book aims to engage readers in reclaiming the right to dream of a world that disowns fatalism, a world that refuses to accept uncritically the colonization of human beings and their resources on a local and global scale.

A portrait of 16th and 17th century Italian convent life, set in the vibrant culture of late Renaissance Venice. Early 16th century Venice had 50 convents and about 3000 nuns. Far from being places of religious devotion, the convents were often little more than dumping-grounds for unmarried women fron the upper ranks of Venetian society. Often entering a convent at seven years old, these young women remained emotionally and socially attached to their families and to their way of life outside the convent. Supported by their private incomes, the nuns ate, dressed and behaved as gentlewomen. In contravention of their vows they followed the latest fashions in hair-styles and footwear, kept lap-dogs and threw parties for their relations. But in the 16th and 17th centuries the counter reformation was to change all that. Threatened by the advance of protestantism, the Catholic Church set about reforming its own institutions. A new state magistracy rapidly turned its attentions to policing the nuns' behaviour, relentlessly pursuing transgressors on both sides of the convent wall.

This title presents the paradoxes of a faith-based feminism.In 1963, as Betty Friedan's Feminine Mystique appeared and civil rights activists marched on Washington, a separate but related social movement emerged among American Catholics, says Mary Henold. Thousands of Catholic feminists - both lay women and women religious - marched, strategized, theologized, and prayed together, building sisterhood and confronting sexism in the Roman Catholic Church. In the first history of American Catholic feminism, Henold explores the movement from the 1960s through the early 1980s, showing that although Catholic feminists had much in common with their sisters in the larger American feminist movement, Catholic feminism was distinct and had not been simply imported from outside.Catholic feminism grew from within the church, rooted in women's own experiences of Catholicism and religious practice, Henold argues. She identifies the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), an inspiring but overtly sexist event that enraged and exhilarated Catholic women in equal measure, as a catalyst of the movement within the church. Catholic feminists regularly explained their feminism in terms of their commitment to a gospel mandate for social justice, liberation, and radical equality. They considered feminism to be a Christian principle.Yet as Catholic feminists confronted sexism in the church and the world, Henold explains, they struggled to integrate the two parts of their self-definition. Both Catholic culture and feminist culture indicated that such a conjunction was unlikely, if not impossible. Henold demonstrates that efforts to reconcile faith and feminism reveal both the complex nature of feminist consciousness and the creative potential of religious feminism.

A pillar of radical activism in nineteenth-century America, Amy Kirby Post (1802-1889) participated in a wide range of movements and labored tirelessly to orchestrate ties between issues, causes, and activists. A conductor on the Underground Railroad, co-organizer of the 1848 Rochester Woman's Rights Convention, and a key figure in progressive Quaker, antislavery, feminist, and spiritualist communities, Post sustained movements locally, regionally, and nationally over many decades. But more than simply telling the story of her role as a local leader or a bridge between local and national arenas of activism, Nancy A. Hewitt argues that Post's radical vision offers a critical perspective on current conceptualizations of social activism in the nineteenth century. While some individual radicals in this period have received contemporary attention-most notably William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, and Lucretia Mott (all of whom were friends of Post)-the existence of an extensive network of radical activists bound together across eight decades by ties of family, friendship, and faith, has been largely ignored. In this in-depth biography of Post, Hewitt demonstrates a vibrant radical tradition of social justice that sought to transform the nation.

Roman Catholic social thought has had much to say about economic life: about virtues and moral principles, about individuals, communities, and institutions. Catholic social thought (CST) is a complex body of ideas that has real consequences, well-described by Hans Urs von Balthasar as "symphonic" in its multiple principles and approaches, nonetheless producing an integrated vision. This tradition can best be understood if it is taken most seriously. The authors of the fifteen papers in this collection begin with a fundamental proposition: that the economic and cultural criteria identified in the tradition of Catholic social thought provide an effective path to sustainable prosperity for all. Two papers undertake the challenge of specifying the means CST recommends and the goals for which it aims. Five are historical studies: of the change in worldview from the medieval to the present, of the medieval Franciscan roots of markets, of the empirical impact that Christian democratic parties and labor unions have had on European society, and of the legal and moral analysis of "the unjust contract." Six papers examine CST and the fundamental proposition from diverse perspectives: from Africa, Latin America, sociology, the economics view of women, and eco-feminism. Finally, two papers provide an introductory chapter and a conclusion addressing the question of how practically to think of the potential implementation of CST in a world rarely open to change.
