Chapter Summary

This chapter attempts to reconstruct the concrete redactional activities of the subcommission De fontibus revelationis. The preconciliar vota as a whole focus considerable attention on the study and use of the Scriptures. The votum of the Lateranum constitutes a sizeable corpus of texts drafted by various different professors exhibiting a more negative and condemnatory tone. The period between this first meeting and the presentation of an initial Constitutio De fontibus - after the Schema Compendiosum - at the TC's second plenary sitting in mid-February can be characterised on the basis of two interrelated features. In the first instance, the members of the commission had put together a series of texts, which ultimately lead to the proposal of a preliminary constitution at the end of January, 1961. In the second instance, the subcommission had been expanded.

Keywords: Constitutio De fontibus; De fontibus revelationis; Schema Compendiosum; vota; votum of the Lateranum
