"the penetrating Catholic intelligence of John Courtney Murray is difficult to imagine outside of a church that could not through the exercise, in Gleason's words, of 'raw ecclesiastical power, wielded in utter contempt of academic freedom,' silence John Courtney Murray."

     Mark Noll, "Reconsidering Christendom?", in Mark A. Noll and James Turner, The future of Christian learning:  an Evangelical and Catholic dialogue, ed. Thomas Albert Howard (Grand Rapids, MI:  Brazos Press, a division of Baker Publishing Group, 2008), 51.
     Noll refers to Philip Gleason, Contenting with modernity:  Catholic higher education in the twentieth century (New York:  Oxford University Press, 1995), 282.
