“Syllabus Errorum”

To the Editor:

You might like to know that Arthur Hertzberg’s article “The Protestant ‘Establishment,’ Catholic Dogma, and the Presidency” [October] is being read at table to the hundred Jesuits of the Saint Louis University Community. . . .

One howler, though, had heads shaking: the notion that the Syllabus Errorum is an infallible document. Rabbi Hertzberg should not have trusted Bishop Pike and Life like that.
