This work examines an important but previously relatively unknown chapter in the Roman Catholic opposition to the rise of the Nazi Party between 1929 and 1933. In 1929, Dr. Georg Moenius, a Catholic priest from the Archdiocese of Bamberg, became editor of the highly-respected Munich weekly journal, the "Allgemeine Rundschau". Under Moenius' leadership, the journal launched a fearless and bitter critique on the rise of the German right wing extremist groups and the "anti-Christ" of the National Socialist Party, Adolf Hitler.
Gregory Munro is Lecturer in European History at Australian Catholic University.
