      Evolution in Catholicism Although the theory of evolution was first articulated in the 's, the Roman Catholic Church didn't address the issue formally until the 's. When the Catholic Church eventually spoke on the issue, specifically Pope Pius XII in , he stated that there was no conflict between evolution and Christian faith.   "Catholicism and Evolution is a thorough exposition of the history of the debate over evolution, especially the theory's proponents and opponents within the Catholic Church. This book should be on the shelves of any concerned with this subject, or indeed any who would like to fully grasp the controversy's roots in the Church."--ANN GAUGER /5(11).

    Evolution contradicts a literalistic interpretation of Genesis; however, according to Catholicism and most contemporary Protestant denominations, biblical literalism in the creation account is not mandatory. Christians have considered allegorical interpretations of Genesis since long before the development of Darwin's theory of evolution, or Hutton's principle of uniformitarianism.   Yes, we believe the Book of Genesis -- at least insofar as the religious truth it conveys, which is that God created the universe and everything in it. There's a lot of misunderstanding about Catholicism and evolution. Some people seem to think that as Catholics we MUST believe in evolution, which is false.

" Catholicism and Evolution is a thorough exposition of the history of the debate over evolution, especially the theory's proponents and opponents within the Catholic Church.

Chaberek carefully and completely lays out the history of the controversy so that readers can form their own opinions/5(22). A more representative example of the Catholic theological work from Poland on evolution is the excellent book God and Evolution, by Archbishop Jozef Zycinski of Lublin (), first published in Polish in and then in English by Catholic University of America Press in /5(2).

The purpose of the book is to provoke reflection on the effect of belief in evolution on Catholics, especially young Catholics. Molecules-to-man evolution—the origin of man and of all living things (with or without divine assistance) through hundreds of millions of years of the same kinds of material processes going on now—is taught to most students as a scientific fact in public and Catholic /5(14).

Catholicism and Evolution: A History from Darwin to Pope Francis is currently (as of May ) the most helpful book I’ve found for Catholics trying to sort out the origins debate in relation to Catholic teaching.

The author is Fr. Michael Chaberek, a Polish Dominican, and the book is Catholicism and Evolution: A History from Darwin to Pope Francis, recently published by Angelico Press. Second Period.—Charles Robert Darwin’s book, on the “Origin of Species by means of natural selection or the preservation of favored races in the struggle for life”, published Novemmarks a new epoch in the history of the evolution idea.

This is an excellent book for those who are seriously interested about what the Catholic church has said and taught about evolutionism. The author approaches the topic historically, covering the magisterial responses both to Darwinism itself and to the insights of Catholic theologians /5(13).

This book is a must-read for Catholics to understand the controversial question of how we came to be. There is often much confusion from scientists, who in many cases are nonbelievers, about what the Catholic Church actually teaches and has taught about evolution. Catholics have long accepted that the creation story as written in the book of Genesis in the Bible can stand along the scientific theory of evolution and that the two are not mutually : Teresa Welsh.

For the most part, the church has resolved any tensions between religion and science. Inin his encyclical Humani Generis (On the Human Person), Pope Pius XII expressed concern that the theory of evolution not be embraced uncritically. He called for more research, but did not condemn the theory.

In Pope John Paul II addressed the. Catholics are at liberty to believe that creation took a few days or a much longer period, according to how they see the evidence, and subject to any future judgment of the Church (Pius XII’s encyclical Humani Generis 36–37).

They need not be hostile to modern cosmology. One of the main reasons why evolution still appears to many Catholics to be a credible hypothesis is that it has not been subjected to rigorous critical examination in the public forum. In his encyclical letter Humani generis inPope Pius XII asked that Catholic scholars examine the evidence for and against the hypothesis of human evolution.

However, in the last 65 years. Thus, the Catholic Church has no objection to the concept of evolutionary creation. Evolutionary creation, also called theistic evolution, is the idea that God ordained and sustained the gradual evolution of life on earth.

Evolutionary creation holds that traditional religious beliefs about God and creation are compatible with the modern. George Sim Johnston is the author of Did Darwin Get It Right: Catholics and the Theory of Evolution. Since the theory of evolution touches on the subject of human origins, the Catholic Church.

How do Catholics understand the creation account of Genesis and evolution. In an address to a recent meeting of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (), the Holy Father commented on the subject of evolution and recognized the progress of science in explaining the origins of life and the process of creation.

In the years since the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species inthe position of the Catholic Church on the theory of evolution has slowly been refined. For about years there was no authoritative pronouncement on the subject, though local church figures took on more prominent sides.

Need­less to say, the Catholics among them are not comfortable with what the ordinary Magisteri­um has to say on the subject. Both John Paul II and Benedict XVI have affirmed that the Book of Genesis is not meant to teach science and that theories of evolution are permissible so long as God is not excluded from the big picture.NPR coverage of Did Darwin Get It Right?: Catholics and the Theory of Evolution by George Sim Johnson and George S.
