the distinctive Jesuit approach

By Diogenes ( articles ) | May 10, 2005

When a theologian says that he "wants to experience teaching theology in a Jesuit environment," what does that mean?

John Norris explains: "I honor the Jesuit approach to education and theological formation." So he needs to get away from "a school where we are distinguished primarily by our fidelity to the magisterium." Because, you see, "this this emphasis upon magisterial fidelity [has] a strong, stultifying influence upon the intellectual and spiritual life of the university."

Ain't no stultifying going on at Jesuit schools.
