The studies collected in this volume highlight the rising of an ecumenical consciousness within the Catholic Church in the early twentieth century. The Catholic paths, suggested in view of the hoped-for Christian unity before the Second Vatican Council, were different but complementary: the path of prayer and liturgy, that of theological reflection, that of fraternal witness and that of martyrdom. The text offers valuable contributions on all these paths, written by specialists in the history of ecumenism.

Gli studi raccolti nel presente volume mettono in luce il nascere di una coscienza ecumenica all’interno della Chiesa cattolica nel primo Novecento. Le vie cattoliche suggerite in vista dell’auspicata unità cristiana prima del concilio Vaticano II furono diverse ma complementari: la via della preghiera

e della liturgia, quella della riflessione teologica, quella della testimonianza fraterna, quella del martirio. Su tutti questi cammini il testo offre preziosi contributi, scritti da specialisti della storia dell’ecumenismo.
