[15] Fr. Christian Cochini, S.J., examines the question of when the tradition of priestly celibacy began in the Latin Church, and he is able to trace it back to its apostolic origins. Hence, his book is aptly titled Apostolic Origins of Priestly Celibacy (San Francisco: Ignatius, 1990). Some Catholics believe that Fr. Cochini provides the meticulous research into the origins of priestly celibacy that were lacking at the time that Pius VI wrote Sacerdotalis Caelibatus. George T. Dennis, S.J., on the other hand, examines the data offered by Cochini and concludes that his book provides no evidence that celibacy had apostolic origins: "There is simply no clear evidence of a general tradition or practice, much less of an obligation, of priestly celibacy-continence before the beginning of the fourth century." Peter Fink, S.J., agrees, saying that underlying premises used in the book "would not stand up so comfortably to historical scrutiny." See also Roger Balducelli, "The Apostolic Origins of Clerical Continence: A critical Appraisal of a New Book", Theological Studies 43(1982): 693-705. While Cochini's book may have been enthusiastically received in some circles in his native India, the website of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of India presents a story that roundly rejects his thesis (http://www.cbci.in/Celibacy-In-The-Catholic-Church.aspx).
