Documents of the Second Vatican Council with search engine
These are the 16 documents that have guided our Church into the 21st century. They were debated and approved by more than 2000 bishops and other church leaders at the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), the ecumenical council called by St. John XXIII and completed under Pope Paul VI.
Note: The Second Vatican Council was the 21st Ecumenical Council and the first major pronouncement on the Church since the 19th Ecumenical Council, the Council of Trent (1545-1563). The 20th Ecumenical Council, Vatican I, closed early afer only one session because of the Franco-Prussian War.
