Reflections on the 50th Anniversary of Nostra Aetate

Dr. Philip A. Cunningham delivered these opening remarks for a panel on Nostra Aetate, the Second Vatican Council’s seminal 1965 declaration on the relationship of the Church to other faiths.  The speech and subsequent discussion took place on October 15, 2015, two weeks after the historic visit of Pope Francis and two weeks before the visit of the Dalai Lama.
