Abstract

Crane's study transposes discussions of Maritain's thought into a new key. The philosopher's conceptual imagery, constrained by the limited philosophical, theological, and other cultural tools at his disposal, frequently and understandably appears as antiquated relics of a bygone century. Small wonder that today's readers find some of it ambiguous and inadequate. However, underlying anxieties over humanity's abandonment to time and history's irreducible absurdity weigh heavily as ever. Stephen Schloesser Boston College Pope and Devil: The Vatican's Archives and the Third Reich, by Hubert Wolf, translated by Kenneth Kronenberg. Cambridge, Mass.: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2010. 316 pp. $29.95. Between 2003 and 2006, the Vatican opened its archives from the pontificate of Pope Pius XI (1922­1939). This made available millions of pages about Eugenio Pacelli, who served as papal nuncio in Germany from 1917 until 1929 and as Papal Secretary of State from 1930 until he became Pope Pius XII in 1939. Today, unfortunately, he is known to many as "Hitler's Pope" due to his perceived silence about the genocide during the Second World War. This book should go a long way towards changing that.
