The Oratory Of St. Philip Neri

Toronto Ontario Canada


Cesare Cardinal Baronius (1538-1607) was the first superior of the Roman Oratory after Saint Philip.  He is known beyond Oratorian circles for his monumental twelve-volume history of the Church: The Ecclesiastical Annals, which he wrote in obedience to Saint Philip. One of his observations was often repeated during debates about the Copernican system of astronomy and its relation to the Bible: `God revealed not how the heavens go but how to go to heaven.

There is an article on Baronius on-line from the Catholic Encyclopedia.
