Waldensians and Catholics during the Sixties and Seventies: The Opening of Dialogue

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Ecumenism; Catholics; Protestant; Waldensians; Council Vatican II; Sixties; Seventies.

Relations between Catholics and Protestants in Italy had a turning point in the 1960s: the new Ecumenical sensitivity of the Second Vatican Council allowed a dialogue impossible in previous decades. This article aims to light the common interests and shared struggles among young people of different confessions, in the fight against the Vietnam war and in defence of the rights of the poorest people (in Italy and in the world). Common became their commitment in 1973 in the Constitution of the Christians for Socialism, a group that in Italy took an interfaith character, and that published the journal «Com-Nuovi tempi».
