Conscience and Catholicism : rights, responsibilities, and institutional responses( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume leading ethicists and theologians address "conscience," a term with loaded meaning and controversy in the Catholic Church in recent decades around issues like political participation, human sexuality, war and institutional violence, and theological dissent. Many essays in this challenging and far-ranging volume focus on the tension between the primacy of conscience (codified at Vatican II) and the processes and cultures of Catholic institutions, including schools, hospitals, and medical research facilities. Intended for a scholarly audience, this valuable collection will also appeal to those involved in Catholic health care, catechetical work, and pastoral ministry. (Publisher)

Drawn from a two-day symposium at Santa Clara University, Conscience and Catholic Health Care provides a timely and up-to-date assessment of the Catholic understanding of conscience and how it relates to day-to-day issues in Catholic health care.

With insights from key figures this book will serve as a useful text and reference for medical students and practitioners as well as a resource for ethics boards and chaplains in Catholic hospitals, most especially those merging with secular health institutions.
