As part of its series of programs to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), The Department of Theology and Religious Studies presents a panel discussion of the first two documents the Council issued: the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy and the Decree on the Media of Social Communication. Both were monumental documents, bringing English and popular music styles into the liturgy, while the other affirmed the right to speech and to information. Together these documents shifted Catholic understanding of communication be it through art, music, ritual, or technology in a way that still challenges people today.
Come to the Science Center, Room 300 on Thursday, February 27, at 11:00 am to hear the panel
