The Jesuits launched their journal Studies in March 1912. In its first decade, Studies reflected the Catholic constitutional nationalism that became displaced by Sinn Fein. In the pages of Studies the polarised conflict between Catholicism and liberalism claimed some accounts of the Irish modernisation break down. The Irish century exemplifies and reveals symbiosis as well as conflict between both intellectual traditions. After independence Studies published many articles on the implications of Catholic social thought as set out in the papal encyclicals Rerum Novarum and Quadragesimo Anno. The 1956 IRA border campaign prompted some soul searching about the notion of a united Ireland, a hitherto taken-for-granted aspiration of constitutional nationalists writing in Studies. In a 1978 piece John Brady SJ argued that citizens of the Republic must emphasise that they did not wish to govern Northern Ireland against the wishes of the majority.
