"Definitive, sprightly, well-written, and scholarly. . . . The author has succeeded in bringing the most famous Catholic cleric of the Confederacy to life."--Florida Historical Quarterly "Here is a vibrant and unconventional bishop with arresting things to say on issues that are still alive in the American Church. . . . He has had the good fortune to have as his biographer a man who is at the same time a careful scholar and a writer with a keen sensitivity for the English language."--Commonweal "Rebel Bishop is a welcome contribution to the history of Catholicism in the South."-- Journal of Southern History First published in 1964, Rebel Bishop, by award-winning historian Michael Gannon, is the biography of a passionately outspoken and controversial figure--a man who found himself at the intersection of three fascinating histories: that of a nation torn by Civil War, that of the Catholic Church during the First Vatican Council, and that of Florida in the mid-1800s. Augustin Verot was the Church's enfant terrible, a man as contradictory as he was controversial. As the Church's first prelate in Florida (1858-1876), he preached vehemently against the abuse of individual slaves and on behalf of slave rights but was nevertheless determined to use Church teachings and his pulpit to defend slavery as an institution. A vocal champion of the Rebels' cause against the Yankees, he nevertheless took his priests, in the winter of 1863, to the notorious prison camp at Andersonville, Georgia, to treat the tens of thousands of Union soldiers held there. In this lively biography, Gannon also explores Verot's memorable participation in debates of the First Vatican Council, where he was known for his trenchant interventions. Singularly, Verot argued in vain for the vindication of Galileo (who was condemned by the Church in the 17th century) and for more liberal attitudes toward scientific progress generally. He was, moreover, staunchly opposed to the newly proposed doctrine of papal infallibility, and urged ecumenical reconciliations with Protestant Christians. Now available for the first time in paperback, Rebel Bishop is the clear-eyed and compelling story of Augustin Verot and his impact at a critical juncture of the histories of Florida, the Catholic Church, and the Civil War. Michael Gannon is Distinguished Service Professor of History at the University of Florida. He is author of The Cross in the Sand: The Early Catholic Church in Florida, 1513-1870 (UPF, 1965, 1983), Operation Drumbeat (1990), the novel Secret Missions (1994), and the best-selling Florida: A Short History (UPF, 1993) and The New History of Florida (UPF, 1996).… (lisätietoja)

1616 Rebel Bishop: The Life and Era of Augustin Verot, by Michael V. Gannon (read 10 Feb 1981) Verot, the third bishop of Savannah, GA., and the first bishop of St. Augustine, Fla., was born in Le Puy, France, on 23 May 1805, and died at St Augustine on 10 June 1876. This book is a well-put-together book which shows Verot to have been quite a guy. In the final paragraph the author says: "He was a character in the best sense of the word." That he certainly was. One does not get the idea that he was episcopal timber from reading about his career as a teacher in Maryland, but from April 25, 1858, when Archbishop Kenrick of Baltimore consecrated him as Vicar Apostolic of Florida, on, one cannot but be impressed with the self-sacrificing and devoted way he performed his arduous tasks. Putting up with what he did must have been what enabled him to play such a tough and outspoken role at Vatican Council I, where, inter alia, he called for the rehabilitation of Galileo, which Pope John Paul II has recently again suggested. His discourses at the Council, which seem to have been quite numerous and outspoken, cannot have been very persuasive but contained a lot of common sense. But one wonders how he could fail to be cowed into silence by the scene, being, as he was, a very minor bishop from a poor diocese--he was appointed Bishop of St. Augustine during the Council, leaving Savannah (where he was succeeded by Ignatius Persico, who in 1893 became a Cardinal--though he left Savannah in 1873). ( )

A interesting biography of a leading but controversial Roman Catholic Prelate in the South during the last half of the 19th Century. Augustin Verot supported slavery as an institution but condemned the slave trade and the abuse of slaves. Breaking the tradition of political neutrality except in matters directly affecting the church, he became politically active supporting the confederacy by articulating a states rights argument and claiming that the North was abrogating the constitution. In his judgment, the Civil War was a just war required by Northern arrogance and aggression. At times blunt and abrasive, he gave pastoral care at the cost of personal comfort over a wide geographic area including the Union POWs held at Andersonville. After the war, he gave his attention to the education and care of former slaves, the reconstruction of the church and the establishment of Catholic public education. At Vatican I, he objected to infallibility on the grounds that it was inopportune and not definable. ( )
