A group of 19 Catholics, including clergy and scholars, have accused Pope Francis of heresy in an open letter to the bishops of the Catholic Church.
The letter, dated “Easter Week,” follows on similar letters and petitions over the last several years questioning the pope’s theological orthodoxy, particularly after the publication of his 2016 post-synodal apostolic exhortation on marriage and the family bearing the Latin title Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love).
Since it offers little new material, the present letter would be unremarkable in this regard were it not for the endorsement of Dominican Father Aidan Nichols, one of the most prominent Catholic theologians in the English-speaking world.
A prolific author, Father Nichols has published over 50 books and was the first John Paul II Memorial Visiting Lecturer at the University of Oxford from 2006 to 2008, the first lectureship of Catholic theology at that university since the Reformation.
