The Reception of Vatican II

Adam A. J. DeVille

Oxford University Press

Vatican II’s proclamation of the Decree on the Catholic Eastern Churches, Orientalium Ecclesiarum, was a watershed moment re-evaluating the relationship between the Roman Church and the Eastern Catholic sister churches. Much has been accomplished in this regard, but more remains to be done. Proceeding in four parts, this essay takes the form of retrospect and prospect. The first part lays out the historical context for OE and analyzes its contents. The second treats of OE’s implementation in the post-conciliar period, translating its vision into practice, especially via canon law. The third part deals with highlights from the theological discussion surrounding OE, treating the work of such figures as George Gallaro, Robert Taft, Frederick McManus, and Richard Gaillardetz. The final section is prospective, and deals with a number of areas that require attention in the next fifty years.

Keywords:   Eastern Catholic Churches, sacramental sharing, particular church, sister church, implementation, canon law, historical context
