No Salvation outside the Church?  A Vatican II Response:

The phrase "outside the Church no salvation" was in use from the 5th century until the mid-20 th century.  It marked the Church's approach to non-Christian religions for centuries.  Yet the phrase is totally absent from the Vatican II documents and post-Vatican II literature.   What does this mean for a contemporary Roman Catholic approach to the religiously other?  This talk explores the history of the phrase "outside the Church no salvation" and the new orientations set by Vatican II.
