Summary:
John Henry Newman is often described as 'the Father of the Second Vatican Council'. He anticipated in his writings most of the Council's major documents, as well as being an inspiration to the theologians who were behind them. His writings, therefore, offer an illuminating commentary both on the teachings of the Council and the way these have been implemented and interpreted in the post-conciliar period. This book, then, is the first sustained attempt to consider what Newman's reaction to Vatican II would have been.
