U.S. Catholic;Aug2010, Vol. 75 Issue 8, p46
The article discusses the attitudes contributing to the creation of the Roman Catholic dogmas of the Immaculate Conception and Assumption of Mary. According to scholars of early Christianity, interest in Jesus Christ's mother was mainly driven by the need to clarify his nature, relationship with God and the salvation he accomplished. Many feel that Christ's genuine humanity is guaranteed through Mary. The Immaculate Conception dogma was promulgated by Pope Pius IX in 1854 while the dogma of the Assumption was declared by Pope Pius XII in 1950.
