Vatican II as an “Event”

Filed under: Vatican II — Tags: , , — komonchak @ 2:18 pm

In the continuing debate about the interpretation and evaluation of the Second Vatican Council, whether and, if so, in what sense, it can be said to have been an “event.” The debate often is a dialogue of the deaf because people often mean different things by “event” and differ also as to whether it should be understood in a theological or an historical sense. Here are two essays in which I explore the historiographical implications of seeing the Council as an “event” and argue against purely or even primarily theological notions of the matter.
