Chapter Summary

The schema De fontibus revelationis is a compromise text. Part of the tragedy of such texts is the fact that they tend not to fully satisfy any of the parties involved in their making, and this represents the core of the conclusions. The chapter provides a brief analysis of the immediate future of the schema. The schema on the sources of revelation quickly emerged as a sitting target, surprisingly enough with one of its authors pointing the weapon. The agenda of the meeting included the establishment of a Conseil biblique in preparation for the Council. By the end of 1962, the schema's reputation was very negative to say the least. The language of the schema on revelation deserves attention as one of the primary stumbling blocks one encounters in reading the text and further evidence of its composite character.
