Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of works by Beda Mayr, a key representative of the Catholic Enlightenment. Because Mayr's major works, The First Step Towards Future Reunion between the Catholic and Protestant Churches (1778) and Defense of Natural, Christian and Catholic Religion (1787-1789), both ended up on the Roman Index of Forbidden Books, they are extremely hard to find in libraries. The reason that Mayr never achieved the fame of Febronius or others is connected to the late publication of his main work, more specifically the second and third volume, in the year the French Revolution started. Beda Mayr knew very well the dynamics of living in a community, and if old and new ways of thinking clashed, this could easily destroy a monastery.

Keywords: Beda Mayr; Catholic Enlightenment; Febronius; French Revolution; Protestant churches
