Languages of publication
The article deals with changes in the perception of history and historicity in the Catholic Church of the 19th and 20th centuries. In the first part the author provides an analysis of the reasons why the Catholic Church of this period showed such an ambivalent attitude towards concepts such as development, adaptation, evolution, revolution or historicity itself. It demonstrates how historicity was perceived by the elite of the Catholic Church as a thread and the consequences of such an attitude. In the second part the article presents a/the key contribution of the Second Vatican Council in this aspect and focuses on the acceptance of the genuine historicity of human and social existence. In the third and last part it also highlights the necessity for a deeper perception of the authentic historicity of the Church, its institutions, rules, attitudes and mentalities itself as a necessary condition for the renewal of the Christianity in the present.
