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 the basic 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.
