Description

It is only in the years since Vatican II that the new thinking about Catholic education has crystalised into shape. Vatican II and New Thinking about Catholic Education provides an opportune moment to take stock of the impact of Vatican II on Catholic education.

This volume considers the various ways in which Vatican II and its teaching on education has been received and engages with the challenges and testing times that beset faith-based education in the twenty-first century. With insights from an international range of leading and influential advocates of Catholic education, the volume demonstrates the differing contexts of Catholic education and explores the ways in which Vatican II’s teaching on education has been received over the past four or five decades.

About the Editor

Dr Sean Whittle is a member of Heythrop’s ‘Institute of Religion and Society’ as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow. Prior to taking up this fellowship Dr Whittle completed his doctoral studies at the highly regarded Institute of Education, now part of UCL. He defended a thesis on the theory or philosophy of Catholic education. His first book ‘A theory of Catholic education’ (Bloomsbury 2014) presents a robust philosophy of Catholic education that draws heavily on insights from Karl Rahner. In this book Whittle controversially argues in support of a non-confessional theory of Catholic education. Alongside his role as an academic at Heythrop, he works part time as an RE teacher at Gumley House Convent School FCJ in London. He is a happily married lay member of the Catholic church.
