 Our Description

The Mystery of Mary
By Fr. Paul Haffner

In this book, the Rev. Dr. Paul Haffner offers a clear and structured overview of theology and doctrine concerning Mary, set in a historical perspective. He outlines the basic scheme of what constitutes Mariology set in the context of other forms of theological enquiry, and working through the contribution of Holy Scripture he proceeds to examine each of the fundamental doctrines that the Church teaches about Our Lady. From the Immaculate Conception to Mary's continuing Motherhood in the Church as Mediatrix of all graces, the reader will find here a sure and steady guide, faithful to tradition and offering a realistic perspective, not reducing the concrete aspects of Mary's gifts and privileges to mere symbols on the one hand, and not confusing doctrine and devotionalism on the other.

Rev. Paul Haffner is a priest of the diocese of Portsmouth (England). He obtained his first degree in Physics at Oxford University. He went on to study philosophy and theology in Rome and received his doctorate from the Pontifical Gregorian University. At present he is lecturer in systematic and dogmatic theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University, the Pontifical Lateran University and the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum.
