Following the historical Second Vatican Council, Pope Paul VI established the International Theological Commission (ITC) in 1969 to serve in an advisory capacity to the pope and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on the most important theological questions of the present day. With a rotating roster appointed to five-year terms, the ITC claims some of Catholicism’s most notable theologians of the past 50 years as alumni—Hans Urs von Balthasar, Joseph Ratzinger, Karl Rahner, Henri de Lubac, Avery Dulles, and Yves Congar, among many others, have each taken their turn as members.
Over the past five decades, the ITC has written on a wide variety of topics of great theological importance. At times controversial and always insightful, the ITC characteristically brings to every document the shared wisdom of the top Catholic theologians of our day from around the world. Though their work is not considered official, infallible Catholic teaching, it is widely respected and has proven very influential in directing the currents of Catholic theology and magisterial teaching. In this collection, you get every document the International Theological Commission has produced since its inception nearly 50 years ago.
