Chapter Summary

Recent events in the relationship between Catholics and Jews could well cause one to wonder about the optimism inherent in Yuval's pronouncement. For, while the established Catholic Church is still officially committed to the teachings of Nostra Aetate, the opponents of that document and of "modernity" in general have continued their fight and appear to have gained, if not a foothold, at least a hearing in the Vatican today. The Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) has become the locus of the extreme Catholic traditionalist world. It was created in 1970 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who first came to attention when he refused to sign the Vatican II statement on Religious Liberty and the Church in the Modern World. As a result, in 1970, he created a traditionalist seminary in Econe, Switzerland, and in the same year he founded the Society of Saint Pius X.
