Authority in Roman Catholicism

Authority in Roman Catholicism

Author: Dr. Bernard Hoose

When discussing governance and teaching authority in the roman catholic church, numerous authors (including some bishops) have pointed to the inadequacy of existing structures and attitudes. In this booklet the author draws on the insights of many of these scholars in an attempt to widen debate on the subject. Such increased participation is, in fact, a large part of the solution that he envisages to the problems that he exposes.

The authority and governance project was established in 1996 at the queen’s ecumenical foundation for theological education, Birmingham, the initiative is concerned with the nature, exercise and experience of authority and the practice of government in the Roman Catholic Church. The aims are to assist the Church address the complex problems of authority, governance, relationships and participation in contemporary Britain and, where appropriate, adapt pastoral policy and practice. These include a desire to distinguish the authority that is a baptismal right and responsibility from that which follows from orders and office in the church. Implications for the lay baptismal vocation are a particular concern.

Dr. Bernard Hoose is a moral theologian lecturing at Heythrop college, university of London. He has published numerous works on various themes in the sphere of moral theology.
