Characteristics: 3.0 ECTS - First six-month period
Course of "Laurea": Teologia: Licenza
History shows that reception of Church councils is a slow and lengthy process. The Second Vatican Council is not exempted to this ob- servation. Even after fiftieth anniversary of the Council’s official opening behind us, its reception and application are still in their nascent stages. Critical in this process are its various interpretations: how it has been perceived and understood by its diverse stakeholders in time and otherwise. Objective: To study the diversified interpretation of Vatican II Procedure: The course will consist mainly of lectures and discussions. A final paper of between 10 and 12 pages, focusing on an aspect of the course, will serve as an evaluation.
