Weren't a number of them under suspicion by the Holy Office, and weren't some of them also forbidden to teach (with a few of them having their books placed on the Index)?  I don't think all or even most them were in positions of power under Pope Pius XII (Pope John XXIII is another story, however...).  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

If I recall, Pius XI and XII wanted to call the Second Vatican Council but were discouraged to by whoever advises popes because there were fears that modernists would hijack the council.

I'd like to see that for myself.  Do you remember where you read it?  What their intentions were?

I'm looking for the primary source, I have secondary ones.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.

Actually...the question is was V2 "mostly" to blame...so the correct answer would be yes which is of course what I voted. So I was mistaken. It would only be wrong if it said V2 is only to blame.

Might4right,

I like some of what you say on these forums, but for some reason every time you speak here I'm overcome with a feeling of almost nauseating sadness... What could it be?  Hmm...  Ah yes!  It's your profile picture!!

That's funny Romish Papist. I haven't given my profile pic much thought at least not since I first choose it. I've had the same profile picture since I first came to fisheaters. And I've never changed it because I like consistency. And because being such a visual person I would build such a strong association between other peoples profile pics and them that I found it very disorienting when others would change theirs. And sadly, but I hope not nauseatingly so, in a real sense my profile picture does represent me.

No worries: I'll just hold my thumb over it from now on when I read your posts.  Hang on a sec while I open another tab and try it out....
...yup!  it works!
