A Vatican Literacy Quiz

July 25th, 2010, Promulgated by Vox Clara

I came across a post recently on John L Allen Jr’s NCR blog “All Things Catholic.” I highly recommend that you check it our and see how you perform on his quiz. Allen’s suggestion is that one might offer this quiz to anybody who hold brazen opinions on matters concerning the Vatican, especially when they appear to know very little. It’s really an ingenious idea, especially given how many Americans feel qualified to pontificate on what our pontiff ought to be saying or doing.

For my part, I passed muster. I missed number 3 after narrowing it to two options and guessing the wrong one and missed number 10 the same way. That must make me an awful guesser or something since I missed to 50/50 shots in a row! I’m eager to hear how all of you do and let me know if this quiz proves useful to you.

Lastly, and unrelated to this post, Utilitarianism II will come eventually. I meant to do it last week, but something came up.
