A Faith That Does Justice: A Brief Account of Recent Catholic Social Teaching

The chair of Boston College's theology department, Kenneth Himes, OFM, reviews the course of Catholic political thought since Vatican II. He begins with a discussion of the political and cultural context in which the council began its “political rethinking,” and assesses the effect of two movements—political theology and liberation theology—on the course of Catholic political thought during the papacy of Paul VI.

Himes is introduced by Frederick Lawrence, director of the Lonergan Workshop at Boston College.
