A Brief History of the Vatican II
Full Product Description
The Second Vatican Council, summoned by Pope John XXIII on Christmas day 1961, began in October 1962. Meeting in four autumn sessions from 1962 to 1965, Pope Johnís Council was a watershed in both world Christian and world religious history.
With brevity and insight Giuseppe Alberigo tells the story of Vatican II Council for a generation that has come of age since its close. He shows us a Council that Pope John called to renew not just the church but Christianity as a whole. He shows that that vision was realized in ways far beyond its participantsí ability to understand.
The drama of the Council comes alive, as the assembled bishops and their advisors work on themes that transformed the global landscape of religion, bringing Catholicism into dialogue with other religious traditions and establishing a whole new spirit of intra-Christian dialogue. Alberigo also suggests ways in which the spirit of the Council has not been implemented.
