What People are Saying About This

Roger Haight

With insight, analytical precision, clarity, and calm brilliance, Rico tells the story of how Dignitatis Humanae has helped gradually to reshape Catholic identity. . . and how its doctrine contains possibilities yet to be internalized. A superb, informative critique of the recent history of ideas within Roman Catholicism.

Thomas Massaro

A most insightful study . . . Rico's extremely well researched work helps us think more fruitfully about the significance and ethical implications of pivotal developments for our increasingly pluralistic church and world.
