He’s not a household name, but Thomas Molnar (1921-2010), who died last week, was one of the great intellectual defenders of Christian civilization in the second half of the twentieth century. Put into Dachau by the Nazis and later chased out of Hungary by Communists, Molnar taught in the U.S. for many years before returning to Hungary in the 1990s. His works, such as The Decline of the Intellectual, The Pagan Temptation, and The Church: Pilgrim of Centuries, were written from a deeply traditional perspective that revered the achievement of Christianity in building the Western world.
I know of one article by Molnar available online: “The Gnostic Tradition and Renaissance Occultism,” a 1974 piece from the newly digitized Journal of Christian Reconstruction, vol. 1, no. 2: 137-145.
