Chapter Summary

The primary research goal of this book is to distinguish the problems associated with the current historiographical appreciation of the schema De fontibus, a text prepared in Rome in the period 1960-1962 that was among the first to be discussed during the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), and attempt to somewhat revise this appreciation. The text was to constitute the basis for Dei Verbum, the constitution on Divine Revelation promulgated in 1965. Why opt for De fontibus? A brief sketch of the general historiographical tenor surrounding the schema serves to illustrate the authors' decision in this regard.

Keywords: Divine Revelation; Rome; schema De fontibus; second Vatican council
