A Limerickal Commentary on the Second Vatican Council


Product Description
Product Details


An entertaining and historically important collection, this work provides a unique perspective on one of the most important moments in Church history, and gives a much needed human touch to the Council. A must-read! - Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP, Archbishop of SydneyOn all sides, scholars have treated the Second Vatican Council with stern and somber gravity. These cleverly translated Latin limericks, with their references to tedious prattle, clerical ambition, long-winded speeches, and the refuge of the local tavern, are therefore a breath of fresh air. There is no doubt that something happened at the Council, and it is a delight to realize that one of the things that happened was laughter at human foibles and pomposity! - Dr Matthew Levering, James N. and Mary D. Perry Jr. Chair of Theology, Mundelein SeminaryA unique, historically fascinating, and utterly entertaining light on the life of Vatican II. A remarkable historical document, beautifully produced and eruditely edited. - Dr Stephen Bullivant, Professor of Theology and the Sociology of Religion (Director, Benedict XVI Centre for Religion and Society), St Mary's University, Twickenham, UK
