For most of modern history, Roman Catholics in Britain were a "rejected
minority," facing hostility and estrangement from a culture increasingly
at odds with traditional Christianity. Yet British Catholicism underwent
a remarkable intellectual and literary renewal, especially in
the twentieth century, drawing a disproportionate number of the age's
leading minds into its ranks. The Third Spring unravels this paradox of
a renascent Catholic culture within a post-Christian society. It does so
through detailed profiles of the spiritual journeys and religious and cultural
beliefs of four seminal members of that twentieth-century revival:
G. K. Chesterton, Graham Greene, Christopher Dawson, and David Jones.
