Course: Pope Leo XIII - Encyclical On the True Nature of Liberty ("Libertas")
A helpful annotated and illustrated version for high school students

Course description:

This is a great reading to do alongside Gregory XVI's Mirari Vos. It explains the nature of true liberty and freedom both from the side of natural reason, and under the light of God's revealed law. “On the Nature of Human Liberty,” we highly recommend this work, which in centuries past would have been considered as completely unnecessary, as men of former ages breathed less liberal air and understood much better than us what true freedom consists of. This document is critical in order to refute the errors of modern man about false “freedoms” such as unlimited freedom of the press, of the mind, etc.

Publisher's Description:


Pope Leo XIII was a prolific writer against the modern errors of our day. In this encyclical written in 1888, he explains the nature of true liberty – the liberty of the Children of God. He then expounds on the false ideas of liberty that have affected society. Since we modern Catholics are breathing in liberal ideas all around us, this encyclical is an excellent antidote for the student against the modern claim that men have liberty of conscience to do whatever they wish, and even have a natural right to choose evil. Besides the idea of true liberty, the pope discusses the natural law and the duties of government. An excellent work!
