Abstract

No American Catholic has had greater impact on Catholic doctrine than Fr. John Courtney Murray, SJ. Through his careful scholarship, courage in the face of powerful opposition, and a delicate balance of faithfulness to tradition with theological creativity, Murray influenced Catholic teaching on religious freedom in a dramatic way.

This presentation told Murray's dramatic story, from his silencing by church authorities to his ultimate vindication at the Second Vatican Council. It's of special interest as Fall 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Council's historic Declaration on Religious Freedom.
