Original 2nd Vatican Council Schemas
Five of the nine original Schemas prepared for the 2nd Vatican Council are now available translated into English. These were drawn up by the Preparatory Commission for the Council headed by Cardinal Ottaviani. John XXIII and company rejected these in favor of less rigid schemas. It is of interest to us because according to modernists, like Francis, the history of the church, its laws, and tradition often start at the 2nd Vatican Council. A tip of the hat to The Antifrancis who sent us this story! For more information see Unam Sanctam Catholicam, Original Vatican II Schemas.
