Founders’ Memorial Issue
Yves Congar, Karl Rahner, Johann Baptist Metz, Edward Schillebeeckx and Hans Küng launched the journal Concilium in 1965, right on the heels of the Second Vatican Council. Its aim was to give voice to the new theological winds that were blowing in the Church and in theology and to disseminate and further advance the reforms that were initiated during the Council.
With the passing of the original generation, we, the current editors of the journal, thought it appropriate to pay tribute to the founders by republishing two of their seminal articles.
