Overview

English summary: This volume provides a thorough investigation on the ups and downs of "collegiality" during the pontificates of Paul VI and John Paul II. With information that often comes from confidential sources, the incisive style and penetrating analysis of the author give us a work that is not only informative but also exciting. French text. French description: La collegialite est "le talon d'Achille de la reception du Concile de Vatican II et une pierre de touche de la fecondite du concile a long terme" (B. Sesboue). Les debats houleux sur ce theme pendant la "semaine noire" du concile (16-21 novembre1964) et l'insertion de la fameuse Nota Explicativa Praevia pour garantir les prerogatives papales restent graves dans la memoire. L'institution du Synode des Eveques le 15 septembre1965 par le pape Paul VI avait permis de grandes esperances. Toutefois cinquante ans apres le debut du concile, on peut se demander dans quelle mesure la collegialite, cette communion entre le pape et les eveques, a ete vecue et realisee dans la vie de l'Eglise. Le Prof. Jan Grootaers, chroniqueur et historien renomme du concile, ami et confident de Mgr Philips, le principal redacteur de Lumen Gentium, nous livre ici une enquete fouillee et rigoureuse sur les Heurs et malheurs de la collegialite sous les pontificats de Paul VI et Jean-Paul II. Apres une histoire tres precise de l'origine et de la signification de la Nota Explicativa Praevia, une etude nous montre comment une note de la Commission Theologique Internationale a ete enterree par un veto de Paul VI en 1971. Deux chapitres presentent alors l'attitude de Jean-Paul II au debut de son pontificat et expliquent comment son style pastoral personnel a fait obstacle a l'expression de la collegialite. Ensuite une analyse originale de cinq synodes (de 1969 a 1987) nous revele les avatars de la collegialite. Les informations souvent de source confidentielle, le style incisif et les analyses penetrantes de l'auteur nous livrent une oeuvre non seulement fort instructive mais aussi passionnante.
