Item description for Vatican II: Did Anything Happen? by S. J. John W. O'Malley, Joseph A. Komonchak & Stephen Schloesser...

For 40 years a battle has been waged over Vatican II between conservatives and liberals, between those who want to go "back to the sources" and those who champion "the spirit of the council." "Vatican II: Did Anything Happen?" is clearly on the side of those who think something unprecedented happened, that a genie was let out of the bottle that will never be stuffed back.
Comprised mainly of a collection of articles, mostly but not all from "Theological Studies," that are without qualification some of the best analysis of the council ever written, this book is a long overdue look at one of the most controversial and revolutionary chapters in the history of the Catholic Church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vatican II: Did Anything Happen??

Compelling  Apr 14, 2008
Having lived through the 1960s I find it incredible that anyone could say that "nothing happened" at Vatican II. That probably stems from the desire to, precisely, turn back the clock to a preconciliar time when curia officials maintained the idea that the Catholic Church was the custodian of some eternal verities. With Vatican II we realized that many of those verities actually came up accidentally through very historical circumstances. As a fact most of those "verities" were actually a few hundred years old, which compared to the millennial history of Christianity, was yesterday. John O'Malley describes and documents clearly how the Church aligned itself with the European aristocracy so that it assumed the same fortress mentality of a dissappearing breed, until it was plainly evident that change was necessary. In a very sensible way he describes and explains how Vatican II represented a renovation of attitude or of "spirit" which in itself is the equivalent of a profound change for Catholic Christianity. For that reason Vatican II is still a project in the making. John O'Malley's book is a remarkable contribution to this end.
