The Catholicity of the Church

Avery Dulles


The book is a study of the meaning of catholicity, which is one of the attributes of the Church according to the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. How is this attribute related to ‘Catholicism’, and more specifically to the Catholic Church? Does it point the Catholic Church towards better ecumenical relations with other churches and towards a more positive relationship with the realms of culture and politics?

Keywords: Catholic Church
