Kultura moralna w świetle nauczania Soboru Watykańskiego II
Moral Culture in the Light of the Vatican Council II’s Teaching
Languages of publication
From the beginning of its existence the Church watched the moral side of the human condition. The years preceding the Vatican Council II were marked by a progressing crisis of moral culture; hence undertaking this issue was an urgent need for the Council Fathers. Moral theology of that period, with its casuistry and the individualist concept of morality seemed to have only a slight influence on Christian life. The aim of the Council intervention in the domain of morality was not only a moral revival of the human person, but first of all presentation of the communal aspects of morality. The subject of analyses in the present article is the issue of diagnosis of the state of moral culture in the doctrine of the Vatican Council II and showing the role of the Church in the forming of the moral good and the norms of universal morality in the post-Council period as a certain dialog between the Church and the modern moral culture.
