Screen grab from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith's new website

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has unveiled a new webpage listing the major public documents and decisions it has issued since 1966 plus key commentaries.

It has separate categories for doctrinal and disciplinary documents and documents dealing with sacramental questions.

It also lists important speeches and statements issued since 1983 by the last two prefects of the congregation: U.S. Cardinal William J. Levada and then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.

The series of volumes “Documenti e Studi” will only be helpful to folks who can read Italian. It’s a list of volumes published by the Vatican publishing house of the congregation’s major documents and proceedings of various symposia the congregation has organized.
