Item description for Historia De Los Concilios Ecumenicos/ History of the Ecumenical Councils (Coleccion el Peso de los Dias) by Giuseppe Alberigo...

This volume studies the different ecumenical councils, paying attention not only to their internal development, but also to their context, their reception and implementation. From a chronological viewpoint, it analyzes the variety of approaches, doctrine, discipline and goals. Therefore, the authors consider the first four councils, devoted to the dialectical relationship between faith and classical culture; the medieval councils, interested in the question of the societas christiana; the Council of Trent and the First Vatican Council, a defense of Roman Catholicism before the reformers' theses; and the Second Vatican Council, engaged in a pastoral approach. Problematic issues are not avoided. The fact that a history of ecumenical councils states that their historical evolution seems to be characterized by a progressive reduction of their ecumenical character (from universal to western, from western to Roman) is at least enlightening. La celebracion de grandes asambleas conciliares va dibujando una linea que atraviesa en profundidad toda la historia secular cristiana. En realidad, recalcan casi siempre los momentos de significado mas denso de la vida de la gran Iglesia. Es sorprendente ver como los concilios suscitaron casi siempre una intensa atencion en el pueblo llano, a pesar de que su participacion directa en las asambleas fue casi siempre externa y marginal. Los trabajos conciliares y las vicisitudes de la fase posconciliar engendraron habitualmente una aguda expectativa y una verdadera sacudida cargada de esperanza. Este volumen analiza los concilios ecumenicos estudiando no solo su desarrollo interno, sino su contexto, las vicisitudes de su recepcion y aplicacion. Diacronicamente analiza la diversidad de sus planteamientos, los avatares de la participacion, su evolucion, fe, doctrina, disciplina, pastoral, y tambien sus objetivos: relacion dialectica de la fe con la cultura clasica (los cuatro primeros), la reglamentacion de la societas christiana de occidente (los medievales), la defensa del catolicismo romano frente a las tesis de los reformadores (Trento y Vati-cano I) y el compromiso pastoral (Vaticano II). No se eluden los temas conflictivos y las constataciones sorprendentes. Que una historia de los concilios ecumenicos afirme que su evolucion historica parece estar caracterizada por una reduccion progresiva de su ecumenicidad de universales a occidentales, de occidentales a romanos, dando la impresion de que la hegemonia del servicio a l
