The Second Vatican saw a radical shift in the Catholic Church’s attitude toward other religions. This chapter examines the preconciliar attitudes and events that led to interreligious dialogue featuring as a major pastoral teaching of the post-Vatican II church. The reception of the council’s teachings is examined by the witness of the popes since the 1960s and the transformation in how Catholics of the postconciliar church relate with their neighbors of other faiths.
