Monsignor Paul Hanly Furfey (1896–1992)


Furfey was a professor of sociology at Catholic University of America. In well known books such as Fire on the Earth (1936) , he advocated a "supernatural sociology" that was at odds with the secular and empiricist approach dominant in the mainstream of the discipline.
