Dr Hans Küng.Neil Boenzi NYT 1980

Dr. Hans Küng has died, the leading theologian who guided many decisions at Vatican II in the 1960s. He challenged the Roman Church on many issues, from priestly celibacy and women’s ordination, and was well-known for opposing the dogma of papal infallibility. He came close to the positions of Protestant theologian Karl Barth, which smoothed the way for mainstream Protestant denominations to embrace many liturgical forms embraced by the Catholic Church, resulting in much closer relationships in the ecumenical movement.
