Vatican II: Some Ecumenical Reflections on the 2012 Lyndwood Lecture

  • Christopher Hill (a1) (a2)

The biennial Lyndwood Lectures are a significant ecumenical joint commitment by the Canon Law Society of Great Britain and Ireland and the Ecclesiastical Law Society. The Canon Law Society, as host, selected Professor Norman Tanner SJ to deliver the 2012 lecture1 and as is customary it fell to me, as chairman of the guest society, to conclude the event with comment and thanks.
