About the Presentation

Yves Congar shaped the theology of Vatican II and the Church in the second half of the 20th century. But the Church and the world have changed significantly from the time of Vatican II. In this time of theological and cultural realignments in Catholicism, it is necessary to re-evaluate the contribution of Congar to Vatican II and the unfinished business of the Council, in order to review the limits and possibilities of that theological paradigm.
