In this episode, Jason and Dr. Bulzacchelli discuss the cultural and ecclesial circumstances surrounding the advent of the encyclical Humanae Vitae. We discuss:
  • The Lambeth Conference of 1930
  • The commission which advised Pope Paul VI
  • The idea of democracy in belief
  • The Charles Curran affair
  • The question of what is at stake when it comes to contraception  

For a little more cultural context, here is an article highlighting the major events that occurred in 1968.
