The School of Compassion
The author engages with the Catholic Church’s contemporary attitude towards animals. This is the fullest sustained study of the subject in that faith tradition. In the first part she explores the history of the Church’s ideas about animals, the second part forensically examines the Catechism of the Catholic Church's four paragraphs which relate particularly to animals, and finally major contemporary issues are raised.
“This book is the fullest systemic treatment of the moral status of animals within the Roman Catholic tradition. It is the result of painstaking scholarship, wide reading, and, most of all, insightful theological exploration.”
