A very thought-provoking analysis of the Church's traditional stand on religious liberty and a discussion of the controversy caused on the subject by the "Declaration on Religious Liberty" of Vatican II. Shows this statement is not a declaration of Faith and that therefore "it is not disloyalty to the faith to seek a clarification of its ambiguities," to quote a July 3, 1977 article from the National Catholic Register.

About the Author
Michael Davies, who lived from 1936-2004, was a Catholic writer who authored various works following the Second Vatican Council in addition to unifying the conservative group Una Voce America. Previously an Anglican, he converted to the Catholic Church in the 1950s, and went on to compose such works as The Liturgical Revolution, The Order of Melchisedech, Partisans of Error, For Altar and Throne, and The Wisdom of Adrian Fortescue. Upon Davies' death in 2004, Pope Benedict XVI called him a man of deep faith who was ready to embrace suffering. His Holiness went on to say, "...We can be confident that the Lord opened wide for him the gates of Heaven. We commend his soul to the Lord's mercy."
