Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma has been considered as the definitive single­ volume summary of Catholic dogmatic theology ever since its original publication in German in 1952. This great work by Ludwig Ott presents a comprehensive yet concise outline of the entire system of Catholic doctrine, laying out its sources in Scripture and Tradition as taught by the Magisterium of the Church. The level of authority behind each doctrinal point is indicated and there are frequent references to the teachings of Fathers, Doctors and numerous Saints of the Church.

Dr Ludwig Ott. Long considered to be one of TAN's most essential titles, The Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma, is widely recognized as one of the greatest summaries of Catholic dogma ever put between two covers. This one-volume encyclopedia of doctrines explains exactly what the Church teaches on any particular topic. It includes information on when a pronouncement was made and provides the sources from Scripture, Church Councils, Papal statements and the Fathers and Doctors of the Church.

After half a century, still the greatest one-volume compendium of Catholic teaching ever published. First published in German in 1952, Professor Ludwig Ott's Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma instantly became an indispensable reference for priests, teachers and families. Comprehensive yet concise, it provides in a single large volume clear explanations of every Catholic doctrinal teaching-along with their foundations in Scripture, Tradition, Church councils, papal pronouncements, and the Fathers and Doctors of the Church. And unlike any other compendium of doctrine before or since, it provides the Theological Grade of Certainty for every teaching it contains. Ott begins with an introduction to the science of theology itself, explaining its principles, methods, vocabulary, and system of classification. He also shows you how to distinguish the Catholic understanding of the development of dogma from the heretical version, and how to differentiate the three kinds of Catholic truth and the six grades of theological certainty. The book is organized into five major sections, covering the entire range of Catholic teaching according to the divisions of traditional catechesis: THE UNITY OF GOD: HIS EXISTENCE AND NATURE; GOD THE CREATOR; THE DOCTRINE OF GOD THE REDEEMER; THE DOCTRINE OF GOD THE SANCTIFIER; THE DOCTRINE OF GOD THE CONSUMMATOR. Detailed table of contents with over 250 entries; 18-page index of Old and New Testament (the best of its kind ever compiled); Index of Persons; Index of Subjects; Extensive Bibliography.

The content is great but the print is pretty awful. I paid more for this than I usually do for a book because it had been highly recommended by several scholars I have heard and the subject interested me. I was wiling to spend more because I thought I was investing in a quality product. I am really disappointed that, despite being sold as a new book, the printed text here is blotchy in places, faint in others, and so faint in some cases that letters are missing (see photos). Yes, the binding and the pages are new but my guess is that the source for the printed text itself is old. I had assumed the entirety of the book - binding, pages and the print (not the content, of course) - had been updated and was literally new. I feel I've been somewhat duped. TAN really dropped the book-publishing ball here in my opinion.

I've read several comments in other editions that suggest this work is out of date due to the new teachings of Vatican II. There's one problem with that premise - Vatican II defined no new dogmas. But don't take my word for it:

"The Second Vatican Council has not been treated as a part of the entire living Tradition of the Church, but as an end of Tradition, a new start from zero. The truth is that this particular council defined no dogma at all, and deliberately chose to remain on a modest level, as a merely pastoral council; and yet many treat it as though it had made itself into a sort of superdogma which takes away the importance of all the rest." - Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI given July 13, 1988, in Santiago, Chile

So yes, absolutely buy, read, and consult regularly the Catechism. Read the documents of Vatican II, keeping in mind they are but 3 years out of two hundred centuries of the Church. There is nothing in Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma that conflicts with current teaching, and there is a great deal you will learn from it. Ott's work was relevant then, and is relevant now.

As stated in other excellent reviews, this work is arranged categorically and gives a broad treatment of the dogmas and firmly held teachings of the Faith. The standard presentation is very roughly as follows:

* Statement of the dogma

* Definition and Origin of the dogma

* Heresies against the dogma

* Support of the dogma from Holy Writ

* Support from the Fathers (pre/post/Nicene)

* Support from Tradition (usually involving how the Scholastics weighed in on the subject)

Most of the great theologians and early Fathers that have stood the test of the centuries are referenced, from both the east and the west. There is just enough detail to explain the dogma, and point the reader to other sources (Denzinger figures prominently.)

One thing that I think will stand out to the reader is how the dogma of the Catholic Church forms over time. For the most part, dogmas are laid out as correctives; as long as there is unanimous agreement on a point, there is no need to define dogma. It's only when there is a challenge or controversy that defined dogma becomes necessary. And it is here that the great service of the Church through the ages comes to the fore. It has tirelessly and relentlessly, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, defended Truth against corruption.

This is why many of the definitions of dogmas begin "Against the Reformers..." or "Against the Pelagians..." As I was reading, I was reminded of the observation of G.K. Chesterton:

"Man can be defined as an animal that makes dogmas. As he piles doctrine on doctrine and conclusion on conclusion in the formation of some tremendous scheme of philosophy and religion, he is, in the only legitimate sense of which the expression is capable, becoming more and more human. When he drops one doctrine after another in a refined scepticism, when he declines to tie himself to a system, when he says that he has outgrown definitions, when he says that he disbelieves in finality, when, in his own imagination, he sits as God, holding no form of creed but contemplating all, then he is by that very process sinking slowly backwards into the vagueness of the vagrant animals and the unconsciousness of the grass. Trees have no dogmas. Turnips are singularly broad-minded."

A couple of things to note:

Having no knowledge of Greek or Latin shouldn't deter anyone from tackling this work, but be aware that not all Latin quotations of the original sources are translated. Not to worry, as you can mostly pick up the quotes from the surrounding text, and in the age of Google, no Latin quote is inaccessible. More difficult were the fewer Greek words and passages that were not translated, but those, too, are somewhat discernable from the text.

I have the hardcover version from Roman Catholic books, and while the binding and construction are first-rate, the printing is terrible - very spotty and smudgy in places. I usually ding books for this lack of quality, but in this case, the material is simply too engaging, and I was able to figure out every word, although it was bit difficult in on same pages.

Here's a list of who should read this book:

2) Are you a non-Catholic Christian unaware of the history of the church prior to Luther, Calvin, etc? Read this book.

3) Do you want to learn what early Christians believed in what was canon in sacred scripture? This book is for you.

4) Are you an aspiring apologist? Read this book.

5) You got free time to read? Buy this book.

6) You have limited time to read? This book is not a dictionary, buy it anyway.

You won't be disappointed.

Students of the Catholic faith sometimes ask, "Is there a complete list of infallibly defined Church teachings?" This is about as close as you will get. I understand there are some issues with the English translation, which according to some Latinists, may affect doctrinal precision in some passages, but it's still a great reference to have on your shelf. The binding and the print are high quality. I'm pleased with the purchase.
