These insightful and provocative essays address some of the most pressing issues now facing educational institutions and the Catholic Church, in particular: the ethical questions involved in maintaining academic freedom in a Catholic institution, the expression of dissent in an academic context and the authority of the vatican, the role of Catholic theologians within the university, and the relationship of the Catholic clergy and hierarchy--the local bishop, for example--to individual colleges and universities. The essays in this work are both theoretical and practical. They will be of special significance to theorists and educators in Catholic and religious higher education, but they will also be important reading for all those interested in academic issues. The insights and applications contained in this work reach into all sectors of the academic community.
