Reviews - What do customers think about Destination Vatican II: An Interactive Exploration of the Second Vatican Council?
a flawed work Jan 7, 2008
This work is interesting and the compilers succeeded in pulling together a large amount of documentation on the Second Vatican Council. However, there is one major flaw. The product description includes this sentence: "a complete list of council attendees organized by country" and therein lies the problem: the list includes many bishops who did not attend the Council, in large part from Communist countries.
It appears that the compilers used the "Annuario Pontificio" (the Vatican's yearbook) as its source for its list of participants. The "Annuario Pontificio" is a realiable source for anyone wanting to know the names of Roman Catholic bishops alive at the beginning of any particular year, but it never indicated which bishops attended the Council.
To provide an accurate list of Council participants, the compilers need only to have consulted "I Padri presenti al Concilio Ecumenico Vaticano II", published by the General Secretariate of the Council in 1966. This work lists all participants and also indicates which sessions of the Council each participant attended.
Due to this glaring error, I can only give this work two stars.
