New website from the CDF

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has opened a new domain: within the official website of the Holy See. This development should facilitate the consultation of its documents in particular for those who are engaged in theological and pastoral work.

There is a general list of all the texts organised chronologically, and three subgroups of these texts, divided into:

  • doctrinal,
  • disciplinary, and
  • sacramental documents.

Another section includes information on the Congregation's series Documenti e Studi, which are individual printed volumes presenting a major document of the Congregation together with commentaries by noted theologians. There is also a description of the volumes containing the proceedings of various symposia organised by the Congregation in recent years, as well as speeches and other contributions by cardinal prefects.

The documents of the Congregation which have been published are those since the time of the Second Vatican Council.
