ESSAY

At times, it appears that Catholicism has succeeded in its aggiornamento. In this light, the John Paul II and Benedict XVI’s years look like the revenge against the intransigent Catholics. During two pontificates, they have become the new soldiers of the Vatican, to the detriment of older religious orders and, more than that, of modern Catholics. How far will this turn go? As far as putting the Vatican II council on hold? That‘s what Caroline Fourest and Fiamette Venner wanted to know by investigating the complex relationships between Rome and three radical Catholic organizations: Opus Dei, the Legionaries of Christ, and the traditionalists.
