Not much on the contents of the document. Should be listed as a stub. --TPB 20:39, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
Can we not just copy the contents of the document from the vatican archives? They are teaching documents so there should be no copyright issues.
- Two issues here. Church documents are copyrighted, as that is how the Church keeps control of the texts, but does not restrict access or use -- particularly conciliar documents as this. (This is not well known, as notices were few and far between for years. When the Vatican publishers put the notices on some recent documents, everyone thought this was some new move. They were wrong.)
- The other is that this is an encyclopedia, not just storage space. It is not clear from your comment whether you mean the whole document or just sections. Selected portions with commentary (properly referenced) would be a good approach here to a very important document. If you want to, get started. Be bold. --ClaudeMuncey 12:48, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
Actually, the german Wikipedia entry on this document has a nice summary of the "Main points" (Kernaussagen) of Gaudium et Spes. Maybe someone is able to translate this? [guest] 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:53, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
We need to get started on extending this one -- it is one of the four constitutions and it is a rather unbalanced stub.ClaudeMuncey 12:08, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
- Thanks for your contrib. In what way do you see the article being extended to become balanced? Withit 08:15, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
Hi is there any citations available for the quotations attributed to Pope Benedict XVI?
The "criticism" section is a biased mess that needs proof-reading. Anyone? --TPB 18:00, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
I noticed that Gaudium et Spes is part of the pro-life Magisterium of the Church, which is a bit remarkable since the document is commonly cited by liberals to promote all sorts of anti-life causes. ADM (talk) 16:27, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
I have just started a little article on Louis-Joseph Lebret and sources indicate He was involved with the drafting the documents Gaudium et Spes, an influential voice in the crafting of Populorum Progressio is there any space for this here or more refs for this document about its origins?
