Lumen Gentium’s Pneumatological Renewal: A "Work in Progress"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


This article demonstrates that LG’s pneumatology has developed into a more consistent and more specific pneumatology. Its grown and growing consistency is apparent from delving into and comparing the number of references to the Holy Spirit in Mystici corporis (1943), Lumen gentium and its earlier drafts, and other conciliar documents. Its more specific pneumatology is manifested in a different, notably more active manner of articulating the Spirit’s involvement in the Church in LG than in MC.
