In this work, Fr. Ripperger addresses questions in regard to the theological tradition on the consensus of the Fathers and the Theologians. With careful theological precision, he demonstrates who is to be considered a Father of the Church, as well as who is to be considered a Theologian, and what demonstrates a true consensus of their thought throughout the ages.
In our modern age where everything seems to be up in the air and drawn into controversy, Fr. Ripperger gives a rare window into the clarity of the theological tradition on this subject in refutation of certain authors. Not the mere obiter dicta of this or that Father or Theologian, but a true consensus of all of the them is infallible, properly understood by the Magisterium.
