The Theory of Evolution Judged
by Reason and Faith
In a scholarly study, Cardinal Ruffini (1888-1967) expounds what the Catholic Church teaches on the subject and then ably demonstrates how modern science contradicts evolutionists' theories. Cardinal Ruffini's recognized classic, La Teoria della Evoluzione secondo la Scienza e la Fede, is famous among students of science, philosophy, history, theology, and Scripture not only for the depth and breadth of its wisdom and for the unusual thoroughness of its treatment, but probably more so for the unusual clarity and simplicity of its writing. In The Theory of Evolution Judged by Reason and Faith, Cardinal Ruffini addresses himself to Darwinian evolution subjects and, with greater emphasis, to its mitigated form of transform-ism - the evolution of the human body, not of the human soul. Against both positions, His Eminence arrays the findings of science (paleontology, embryology, anatomy, physiology, parasitism, genetics, etc.), the teachings of the Scholastics and the Fathers of the Church, and (most significantly, since he is a Cardinal member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission) the authority of Scripture scholars. More convincingly and more thoroughly than any other, this work sharply clarifies the Roman Catholic Church's mind on the two subjects under analysis. This is a must-have book for any Catholic who wants to understand the Church's authentic voice on this crucial contemporary topic. Published in 1959, this work is more important than ever since evolution is central to Modernism's errors. In a scholarly study, Cardinal Ruffini (1888-1967) expounds what the Catholic Church teaches on the subject and then ably demonstrates how modern science contradicts evolutionists' theories.
