Overview

No two areas have affected Catholic self-understanding and its relations to other peoples of the world than its approach to Christian mission and to the role of religion and the church in society. Before the Second Vatican Council, Catholicism was committed to a dominant role, to the detriment of both other religions and nonbelievers. After Vatican II, two key documents - Ad Gentes and Dignitatis Humanae - have created a new context and a new set of relations with all persons as Catholics now participate with others in a pluralist society. How have both non-Catholic societies and the Catholic Church changed over the last forty years because of these two documents? Evangelization and Religious Freedom explains the most important differences.
