Antonio Rosmini ‘Persecuted Prophet’ by Rev Fr John Michael Hill, IC
Blessed Antonio Rosmini was a man who reached out beyond the Church to engage in dialogue with the unbelieving world of his time. A major figure in the nineteenth century Church – though little known in the English speaking world – Rosmini could be regarded as the patron of speculative theologians and philosophers for his obedience to, and reverence for, the Church. In this biography, the first in English for over half a century, John Michael Hill places Rosmini in the context of his family, his friends, his foes and his nation. He evaluates the impact Rosmini had on other significant figures in the Church, and on his followers in the Institute of Charity.
