Book Cover  

The Mariology of the 20th century got a decisive stimulus by the movement for the dogmatic definition of Mary's social function as "Mediatrix of All Graces." Gloria Falcão Dodd gives a synthetic, historical overview of the development from 1896 until the proclamation of the Marian chapter of Lumen gentium in 1964. She also analyzes the theological arguments for and against the dogmatic definition. Her very useful work is indispensable for anyone who wants to receive the most recent basic information about the most disputed topic of modern Mariology.
