Full Product Description

Designed to give readers a simple but accurate idea of a Latin expression, this dictionary compiles, translates, and briefly explains the phrases found in theological writings and canon law that may puzzle readers unfamiliar with Latin or the theological meaning and nuances of these terms. Consecrated phrases refer to expressions which are used, often in shorthand manner, to express a certain theological position or thought, which express a significant position of Roman Catholic sacramental theology as defined at the Council of Trent. Often these terms appear in a given theological text with little or no translation or explanation. Consecrated Phrases provides that explanation in concise and understandable language.Entries are listed according to the form most likely to be used in the expressions themselves as found in theological writings. Each entry begins with a literal" translation of the Latin term or phrase and then provides a brief explanation on the theological meaning or significance of the term. While most of the entries contain theological, liturgical, canonical, or philosophical terms primarily from the Roman Catholic tradition, important expressions in the various Protestant traditions are also included, as well as a number of common classical aphorisms, Latin titles of many Church documents, and some common scholarly abbreviations. Consecrated Phrases is a valuable reference for anyone interested in theology at al levels. James T. Bretzke, SJ, is an assistant professor of fundamental Christian ethics at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley."
