The work of Vatican II began long before the council was called. Reform movements addressing liturgy, catechesis (education in the Christian faith), ecumenism, patristics (early Church leaders and priests), and scripture started the “return to the sources” that led to reform at the council. This session will examine each of these movements and their significance on the work of Vatican II.
Scott Woodward is Vice-President for Academic Affairs and Dean at Oblate School of Theology. He teaches in the area of ecumenism and interreligious dialogue as well as connecting Reformation history to the present era. He has published on the local reception of Vatican II.
