The Second Vatican Council has transformed the way both Catholics and non-Catholics look at the Church. From claims of a Council in full continuity with Tradition, but which has merely been misinterpreted, to those who see in it a rupture with the integral whole of the past, the Second Vatican Council is still a subject of fiery debate. 

In the past, any critical review or discussion of the actual events which took place at the Council was brushed aside as a discussion untenable for a Catholic to hold. Now, from the discussions of the Society of St. Pius X to the books of Msgr. Gherardini, or the renewed interest in the work of Romano Amerio, this dicussion is now happening in a never-before seen way. In that vein, the renowned Italian historian, Roberto de Mattei takes up his pen to answer a question that has still not fully been answered, "What happened at the Council?"

Sample Chapters:

  • The Pontificate of Pius XII: Triumph or the Start of a Crisis?
  • The Reactions to Neo-Modernism during the Pontificate of Pius XII
  • Angelo Roncalli: Conservative or Revolutionary
