Theology of the Body Manuscript Discovered

  /   Wednesday June 14, 2006  

Often, when I hear of manuscripts having been discovered, I think of ancient documents. Well, in this case, the manuscript that was discovered was none other than the original Polish manuscript of Theology of the Body. It appears that Pope John Paul II had the text before he had become pope, complete with the original headings that explained the structure of it. It seems to me like he planned to publish this, but, for some reason that isn’t clear to me, decided to use this as a series of audiences instead.

A new translation will be available in September. I think I’ll wait for this to come out before I start thinking about reading the entire text. I’ve already placed an order for the new translation.
