The Question of the Jewish People and the Development of Doctrine Arising from Vatican II

The Past, Present, and Future of Theologies of Interreligious Dialogue

This chapter examines some significant doctrinal issues arising out of the teachings of Lumen Gentium and Nostra Aetate on the Jewish people. While certain of these issues took center-stage after the Council, they were hardly discussed in any detail at the Council. The article contains an inquiry into the manner in which post-conciliar magisterial teachings (at different levels of authority) steered the unresolved doctrinal debates. Those doctrines that are taught, operate at varying levels of authority, ranging from de fide teachings that must be accepted by the faithful as constitutive of their Catholic identity to sentia ad fidem pertinens teachings, formally taught by the magisterium, drawing selectively on the tradition, but which have not been subsequently repeated or reiterated or given developed explication. The article focuses on three areas in particular: the Church and anti-Jewishness; the status of covenant; and the question of mission.
