In this episode, we delve into the fascinating and controversial history of papal infallibility, from its beginnings to its establishment during Vatican 1 Council. Our guest for this episode is Professor Shawn Blanchard, an expert in the history of the papacy. We start by exploring the origins of papal infallibility, including its roots in the Council of Trent and its development over the centuries. We also examine the various debates and controversies that have arisen over the doctrine, including the limits of papal authority and the role of councils in church governance. We then turn to the setup for Vatican 1 Council and the intense debates over papal prerogatives that took place during the council. Professor Blanchard provides us with insightful analysis on the various factions involved in the debates and the complex theological and political issues at play. #PapalInfallibility #CouncilofTrent #Vatican1 #ChurchHistory #Papacy #ReligiousAuthority #Theology #Catholicism You can learn more about the History of Papacy and subscribe at all these great places: Website: To Subscribe: Email Us: Support Us on Patreon: Parthenon Podcast Network: The History of the Papacy on YouTube: Help out the show by ordering these books from Amazon!
