NU English Professor
Writes Book On Shelley
Dr. Christos E. Pulos, assistant
professor of English, is the
author of "The Deep Truth,"
newly released book published by
the University Press.
"The Deep Truth," a new ap
proach to Shelley's thought, in
vestigates the scepticism of the
poet's mind. Butos uncovers
evidence that possibly invali
dates the widely held theory that;
Shelley was fundamentally in-,
consistent and evea intellectually;
SPEAKING ON "Outstanding
Religious Personalities of the
Present Century," he cited two
men as in part responsible for the
new emphasis on "Christianiza
tion of society." They were
William Temple, who rose to
great eminence in the Anglican
Church and became Archbishop
of Canterbury, and Toyohiko Ta
gawa, a Japanese evangelist.
In the early part of this cen
tury, the Rev. Smart said, in one
part of London a tremendous
amount of suffering existed while
in the other part there was wealth
and indifference. Temple organ
ized an exhibit to force upon
the attention of Oxford the reali
zation that their fellowmen were
THROUGHOUT HIS life, he com
pel ed Christians to realize they
had social responsibilities, the
Rev. Smart said.
He stated that Kagawa believed
that if other members of the hu
man race suffer, he suffers, and
refuted that Christianity had noth
ing to do with economics. He
believed instead in "spiritualized
economics" economic co-opera
tion based on Christian love.
TO ILLUSTRATE a "new sense
of God's sovereignty," the Rev.
Smart told about Dr. Frederich
Karl Otto Dibelius, who early in
the Twentieth century talked about
the Church taking over the re
sponsibility of Christianizing the
When the first Nazi parliament
met, Dibelius preached an ad
dress making it clear that if the
state interfered with the Church
or tried to rule the minds of men,
the Church would resist in the
name of God.
His belief that men owe their
obedience to God caused him to
be cast into prison. He is now
fighting against the Communist
doctrine of totalitatianism in East
Berlin, the Rev. Smart said.
HE ALSO told about men who
had brought to light a new kind
of Christian mysticism. Each of
them had a vision that caused
him not to withdraw from the
crowd but to go out and work
Their mysticism, he said, was
"rooted in Christ" and "identified
the suffering of man. with the
"suffering of Christ."
