Quick Overview

Yves Congar, OP, (d. 1995) is widely recognized as one of the most important Roman Catholic theologians of the twentieth century and a major influence on the theology of the documents of Vatican II. Congar drew from biblical, patristic, and medieval sources to revitalize the discipline of contemporary theology. He was an early advocate of ecumenism and also contributed to shaping the theological agenda of the twentieth-century liturgical movement. He was named a cardinal in 1994 by Pope John Paul II.

Product Description

“My Journal of the Council offers a riveting first-hand assessment of the dynamics, disputes, and decisions of the Council. At the same time, this volume provides a rare glimpse into the personal and spiritual cost of Congar’s love of truth and his commitment to hand on the Church’s authentic Tradition as a living heritage of faith.” Mary Catherine Hilkert, OP Professor of Theology University of Notre Dame “Fr. Yves Congar was the most important and influential theologian at the Second Vatican Council. The journal that he wrote on the spot nearly every day provides entry not only to his ideas and feelings but to the dynamics at work as the Council accomplished a work of renewal and reform for which he had himself worked and suffered for decades before. This is indispensable reading for anyone who wishes to understand the texts, and the drama, of Vatican II.” Joseph A. Komonchak Professor Emeritus, Historical and Systematic Theology, The Catholic University of America Editor of the English version of The History of Vatican II, Giuseppe Alberigo (ed.) “Yves Congar’s diaries give us an intimate insight into the most important event in the life of the Catholic Church in the twentieth century. Having been marginalized and silenced because of his theological views, Congar was summoned to Rome to be a crucial actor in the Council. He records his views of the participants with wonderful frankness and gives us access to the dramatic negotiations and maneuvers that took place behind the scenes. It is impossible to put it down. It unveils the genesis of the Council documents that changed the Church.” Timothy Radcliffe, OP Former Master General of the Dominican Order
