This monograph is the first work in the Czech and international contexts outlining the dramatic beginnings of the promotion of the evolutionary paradigm of the origin-creation of man within the Catholic Church. Although several courageous proponents of evolution appeared in the 1870s, the breakthrough does not occur until the 1990s, when numerous respectable pioneers of the new view of the appearance of man emerged in many western countries as well as in the Czech Republic despite the attitudes of the Vatican. Although Catholic advocates of the theistic interpretation of the evolution-based origin of humankind after 1910 represented an important and growing group, Vatican did not begin to open up to the new paradigm until the second half of the 20th century. This book should be interesting to theologians as well as experts in the history of science and anyone fascinated by the origin of humankind and the history of paleoanthropology.
