In the Second Vatican Council (1962 – 65) the Catholic
Church reached a new viewpoint of itself, both internally
and externally. The Declaration Dignitatis Humanae
developed this opinion of the individual as dignified (DH 2)
and as a person equipped with his or her own sense of
conscience (DH 3). Based on this form of dialogical
thinking, the Council can tolerate varying forms of
Christianity other than the Catholic form and accept other
religions or beliefs.

The canonical translations of this theological spin to the
human person (DH 1) in this book are presented by Indian and
European authors with a view to a revision of the Codices.
