Launch of Acta Œcumenica, the new journal of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity

15 Jun 2020

Marking the 25th anniversary of Ut unum sint, Saint John Paul II’s encyclical on ecumenism, as well as the 60th anniversary of its foundation, the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity has launched its new publication Acta Œcumenica, following on from Information Service/Service d’information which had been issued since 1967 (archives available online here).

In his recent letter to Cardinal Koch for the 60th anniversary, Pope Francis mentioned in particular the launch of the new annual volume, which gathers documentation on the engagement of the Holy See on Christian unity, as well as on its relations with Judaism.

Complementing the website offering immediate updates on ecumenical news from the Holy See, Acta Œcumenica is a complete reference source on the official ecumenical documents of the Holy See, generally published in their original language, for academic and research purposes and for all those interested in the ecumenical pursuit.
