The Second Vatican Council as an Ecumenical Theme

Prof. Fulvio Ferrario

The course aims at presenting some of the main documents of Vatican II, placing side by side and in dialectic a Catholic and an evangelical reading. The lessons presuppose the prior reading of the texts by the participants. The detailed bibliography will be suggested during the lessons: as an introduction, we indicate O.H. Pesch, Il Condilio Vaticano II, tr. it. Brescia, Queriniana, 20152. The Catholic professor, Fabrizio Bosin, is Professor of Chrysrology at the Marianum Faculty of Theology.
