Pater Edmund Waldstein, O.Cist., author of the web-log Sancrucensis, has posted to The Josias his first installment of a four-part series entitled “Religious Liberty and Tradition.” A bit of background on the origins of the essay can be found here.
Regardless of where you come down on the controversy over Dignitatis Humanae and its interpretation, Pater Edmund’s contribution to the debate warrants an attentive eye. Having read the entire essay already, I can attest both to its careful treatment of a volatile topic and its power to persuade. That does not mean I am without questions on certain parts and skepticism toward others, but those are for another time. For now, go forth and read; I’ll still be here when you get back.
