H18 Women, Scriptures and Vatican II
(H18Apr2013)

iconVatican II massively changed the way Catholics worship and the way Catholics thought of themselves regarding Jews, Muslims, and Protestants. The Council's four sessions from 1962 to 1965 and its 16 landmark documents renewed the priesthood and religious life, enhanced the roles open to women, and identified the church as the "people of God" attuned to the problems and hopes of the world. These changes, in large part, were inspired by a fresh understanding of the Scriptures. This course will explore this in depth along with the contributions that women have made following upon the Council. Sections of the Vatican documents will be read by way of confirming this new reading of the Scriptures.Click here for full details.
