Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian ReligionseBook - 2014
The sixteen official documents, constitutions, decrees, and declarations, of the Second Vatican Council are now available from Liturgical Press in the most popular and widely used inclusive-language edition translated by Irish Dominican Austin Flannery. As the worldwide Church continues to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Council (1962-65), there is a great need in college classrooms and parish faith formation groups (as well as for individuals) to again have access to these documents in contemporary English. As Flannery wrote in his introduction to the 1996 edition, 'The translation of the texts of the Vatican documents in the present volume differs from that in the previous publication in two respects. It has been very considerably revised and, in place, corrected. It is also, to a very large extent, in inclusive language. I say 'to a very large extent,' because we have used inclusive language in passages about men and women but not, however, in passages about God, except where the use of the masculine pronoun was easily avoidable.' Nostra aetate (In our Time) is the Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions of the Second Vatican Council. The first draft had been titled 'Decretum de Iudaeis' ('Decree on the Jews').
