Catholic and Ecumenical: History and Hope : why the Catholic Church is Ecumenical and what She is Doing about it

Предња корица
Rowman & Littlefield, 1999 - 237 страница
Ecumenical consciousness has not always been part of the Catholic experience. Father Bliss traces how the concern for ecumenism came about - from uneasy tension to confidence in the true grace of catholicity. From the emergence of the medieval Papacy to Trent and the open spirit of Vatican II, the history of the Church continues to shape contemporary dialogue. Catholic and Ecumenical is a solid work that also gives an up-to-date and accurate view of Catholic participation in ecumenical dialogue among the churches and with people from other faith traditions.
