In this episode, we delve into the topic of Papal Infallibility, examining the differing views of minimalists and maximalists on the subject. Our guest for this episode is Shaun Blanchard, professor and Catholic theologian. Join us as we discuss the historical development of the doctrine of Papal Infallibility, which holds that the Pope is protected by the Holy Spirit from teaching error on matters of faith and morals. We explore the two opposing views on the extent of this infallibility - minimalists who hold that it only applies to specific pronouncements made ex cathedra, and maximalists who argue that it extends to all papal teachings. Shaun helps us to understand the dogma of infallibility and how it relates to the authority of the Church. We also examine the concept of conciliarism, which holds that Church councils are the supreme authority in matters of doctrine, and how it relates to infallibilism. Throughout this conversation, we provide historical examples of how the doctrine of Papal Infallibility has been applied, including the definition of the Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius IX in 1854 and the definition of the Assumption of Mary by Pope Pius XII in 1950.
