THEO 7624 Vatican II: History, Interpretation, and Reception (Fall: 3 )
The Second Vatican Council was arguably the most significant ecclesial event for Roman Catholicism in the last four centuries. Although "Vatican II" has become a staple of contemporary church lingo, few who invoke it (including many bishops and theologians!) seem to have really grasped what happened at that council and what its consequences are for the life of the church today. This course will study the Second Vatican Council as 1) a seminal ecclesial event, 2) a source for authoritative Catholic teaching and 3) a source for a revitalized vision of the church for the third millennium.
