Product Description

As Pope Francis leads the worldwide church wholly within and from the teachings of the Council (1962-65), there is a great need in college classrooms and parish faith formation groups--as well as for individuals--to again have access to these documents in contemporary English.

This volume contains the sixteen official documents--constitutions, decrees, and declarations--of the Second Vatican Council in the most popular and widely used inclusive-language edition translated by Irish Dominican Austin Flannery (+2008). This edition is also presented with a larger, more readable font than previous editions.

Table of Contents:

  • Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium
  • Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, Dei Verbum
  • Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilum
  • Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, Gaudium et Spes
  • Decree on the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church, Christus Dominus
  • Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests, Presbyterorum Ordinis
  • Decree on the Training of Priests, Optatam Totius
  • Decree on the Up-to-Date Renewal of Religious Life, Perfectae Caritatis
  • Decree on the Apostolate of Lay People, Apostolicam Actuositatem
  • Decree on the Church's Missionary Activity, Ad Gentes Divinitus
  • Decree on Ecumenism, Unitatis Redintegratio
  • Decree on the Catholic Eastern Churches, Orientalium Ecclesiarum
  • Decree on the Mass Media, Inter Mirifica
  • Declaration on Religious Liberty, Dignitatis Humanae
  • Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions, Nostra Aetate
  • Declaration on Christian Education, Gravissimum Educationis

Each of these sixteen documents is also available as separate eBooks (PDF, ePub, and Mobi) priced at $2.99 each. An affordable solution for students and scholars who only need to reference particular decrees or declarations. See more on our digital edition page. https: //
