Eighty RC theses condemning the principal [Lat. praecipuos] errors of our time condemned by Pins IX (see Popes, 28); issued 1864 with encyclical Quanta cura (see Encyclicals); not signed by Pius IX.
Propositions condemned include statements on pantheism, naturalism, rationalism, indifferentism, latitudinarianism, socialism, communism, secret socs., Bible socs., clerical-liberal socs., ch. rights, ch. and state, ethics.
Reactions varied. Some regarded the theses as absolute and untenable; others regarded them as relative and conditioned by hist. roots. The latter opinion seems to prevail in RCm today. JEG
