Description

Not only was Pavan a principal collaborator of John XXIII in the drafting of the encyclicals Mater et Magistra and Pacem in Terris, but he also had a vital role in the preparation of two of the most important conciliar documents: the pastoral constitution Gaudium et Spes and the declaration on religious freedom.
His doctrine flows in an autonomous and unbroken stream from the rich source of his assimilated learning and personal reflection. His ideas reflect his familiarity with the great thinkers of all time: with Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Pascal and Rosmini; and they find him in company with the modern Dominicans, Marie-Dominique Chenu and Yves Congar in defining the role of the Christian laity in the temporal order.
