Overview

Nearly a century after the First Vatican Council, the Second Vatican Council—commonly known as Vatican II—was held between 1962 and 1965. This assembly, invoked by Pope John XXIII, met to discuss matters of faith and Church discipline. Over 2,000 patriarchs, cardinals, residing bishops, abbots, male heads of religious orders, and other nominated persons participated each autumn in the four-year event. From this assembly, four constitutions, three declarations, and nine Decrees were produced, creating major changes for Catholic life and worship worldwide. The Vatican II Documents are essential for understanding the last 50 years’ spirited, and sometimes contentious, conversations within Catholicism.

The Latin Edition of the Vatican II Documents is published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana. With the extensively linked Vatican II Documents, resources such as the Early Church Fathers Special Catholic Edition, the Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas, and the Catholic Theology and Dogma Collection become even more powerful as you explore them together.

With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in the Vatican II Documents are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references link to the wealth of language resources in your digital library. This makes these texts easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Divine Revelation,” or “Liturgy.”
