This article attempts to contribute to a better understanding of Neo-Scholasticism, a movement within Catholicism which shaped both philosophy and theology. Emerging in the course of the nineteenth century, it dissolved and finally disappeared in the wake of Vatican II. By means of a case-study focusing on dogmatics, the rise and fall of Neo-Scholasticism is outlined. The object of inquiry is the Academia Theodoriana, today’s Department of Theology in the city of Paderborn, Germany.
