Vatican II & the Magisterium

Richard R. Gaillardetz, Joseph McCarthy Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology at Boston College and president-elect of the Catholic Theological Society of America, has co-authored (with Catherine Clifford) a book that offers an accessible take on the vision of the Second Vatican Council, which Professor Gaillardetz calls “the most important event in Roman Catholic history since the Protestant Reformation.” Keys to the Council: Unlocking the Teaching of Vatican II is particularly helpful to the growing number of Catholics — including those studying for ordained and lay ministry–with no personal recollection of Vatican II, its invigorating vision and the way it profoundly re-shaped the understanding and practice of the Catholic faith. BC Story | Prof. Gaillardetz also has edited a new volume of papers by leading Catholic scholars on the Church’s official teaching authority in a postmodern world. According to the publisher (Liturgical Press), When the Magisterium Intervenes: The Magisterium and Theologians in Today’s Church covers many topics, including the investigation of theologians that has occurred in recent years, canonical perspectives on such investigations, the role that women religious have played in these issues, the place of the media when problems arise, and possible future ways forward.
