This paper examines current controversies over the rights and responsibilities of personal conscience in the light of Vatican II's call for the renewal of moral theology. It reviews magisterial statements on conscience since the Council, which culminated in the critique of "creative conscience" in Veritatis Splendor. Finally, there is a brief outline of a virtues' approach to conscience, and to the relationship between formation of conscience and the continuing conversion which is constitutive of Christian discipleship.
