In my 4,800-word review essay "Michel Foucault's 2021 Book on Ancient Western Christianity, and Walter J. Ong's Thought," I first highlight the mature thought of the American Jesuit Renaissance specialist and cultural historian Walter J. Ong (1912-2003; Ph.D. in English, Harvard University, 1955). Next, I highlight certain selected points in the late French philosopher Michel Foucault's latest posthumous book Confessions of the Flesh, translated by Robert Hurley; edited by Frederic Gros (New York: Pantheon books, 2021; orig. French ed., 2018), which is about ancient Western Christianity from the second century to the death of the prolific Saint Augustine, bishop of Hippo. Finally, I round off my review essay with a bibliography of Ong's works and of selected other works on four themes in Ong's mature work from the early 1950s onward.
