ABSTRACT
In September 1910, shortly before the date Woolf chose for when human character changed in the way associated with Modernism, Pope Pius X released the 'Oath Against Modernism' encyclical. This was the last of four encyclicals roundly condemning certain reformist movements within the Catholic Church known collective as 'theological modernism'. The controversy surrounding this crisis has been woefully neglected as a context for cultural modernism. This article surveys this controversy, traces contexts for the term's deployment and contends that, without including it in our sense of the era, our understanding of that era's revolutionary culture is incomplete.
