The Global Triumph of the Generation of 1930

(p.252) 8 1960s
An Avant-garde Theological Generation

Jon Kirwan

Oxford University Press

This chapter chronicles the spread and internationalization of the thought of the nouveaux théologiens and the triumph of ressourcement thought during the conciliar years of the 1960s. The discussion of this internationalization of French Left Catholic thought begins with the particular influence it had on Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli and Giovanni Battista Montini, the future Popes Paul VI and John XXIII, respectively, who guided the Church through Vatican II, the former convening it and the latter bringing it to conclusion. Other key ecclesiastical reformers such as Marcel Lefebvre and Louis Bouyer are examined as well in respect to the influence of French thought on their development. Finally, the turmoil after the Council is discussed and in particular the very different reactions the nouveaux théologiens had to the progressive years that characterized the post-Conciliar era.

Keywords:   1960s, Vatican II, Montini, Roncalli, Paul VI, John XXIII, Lefebvre, Bouyer
