- Oxford University Press
This chapter opens by showing how six documents from Vatican II emphasize a creative return to the biblical, patristic, liturgical, and other sources that will revitalize the church's teaching and practice. It then recalls how this retrieval was initially hindered by the ‘manualist’ theology embodied in textbooks published in Rome and Spain. But ressourcement theologians worked with the bishops in challenging, revising and replacing draft documents prepared by the ‘manualists’. By sampling Vatican II documents, this chapter illustrates the way in which Dei Verbum, Lumen Gentium, and Ad Gentes, in particular, embodied some major and minor themes already developed by ressourcement theology. The chapter ends by briefly indicating further examples of such retrieval to be found in Gaudium et Spes and Unitatis Redintegratio.
