Sample text

It is now time to turn to Bellarmine’s theory on the authority of the pope in relation to Bellarmine’s theoretical framework. The Power of the Pope: The Ecclesiological Theme The controversy De summo Pontifice was third in the order of the printed Controversiae, appearing after the one on Christ and the one on the word of God, but it was also the controversy that, by his own admission, Bellarmine considered to be the cornerstone of the entire work. 47 That is why the heretics of the past and of the present times, while being divided among themselves on many doctrinal points, are all unified in attacking “the see of the Roman Pontiff,” and, consequently, no heretic had ever existed who did not attack the primacy of that see.

74 When Sixtus V ascended to the pontificate, he wanted to publish Panvinio’s biographies of the popes, and between 1588 and 1592 Bellarmine, then a member of the Congregation of the Index, delivered his censure on Panvinio’s and Platina’s works, in which he reiterated the same need to eliminate historical inaccuracies even if they served to paint a flattering picture of the popes. For example, replying to a criticism by Panvinio according to which Platina had written too much on the vices of the popes whose biography he was writing, Bellarmine replied that out of forty unflattering biographies, all but three or four should be corrected.

Bellarmine’s first class was held in November 1576. The inaugural lecture was revised and printed at the beginning of the first volume of the Controversiae, but some manuscript notes taken by Bellarmine’s students during his lecture are still existent,31 and a comparison between the manuscript and the printed version reveals a very important common feature: Bellarmine’s lectures on the controversies were already thought of as the organic and systematic body that they would become in the printed Controversiae.
