Yves Congar was a theological advisor to the preparatory commission for Vatican II, and attended all sessions of the Council (1962-1965) as a theological expert. His daily journal provides a window into the Council’s workings and into the development of what would become a series of historical documents and declarations.
Theologian Yves Congar op, silenced and exiled in 1955, was in 1960 made a theological advisor to the preparatory commission for Vatican II.
From then on, and all through the Council (1962–1965), he was an influential day-to-day participant in its work. His diary provides a window into the Council’s workings and the development of what would become a series of historical documents and declarations. It also offers Congar’s own down-to-earth and candid perspective on many of the remarkable people and events that shaped the Council.
‘Congar … records his views of the participants with wonderful frankness and gives us access to the dramatic negotiations and manoeuvres that took place behind the scenes.’
– Timothy Radcliffe op
