Unitatis Redintegratio

The Decree on Ecumenism outlines the council bishops’ approach to relations with other Christians. The outline is clear-cut. The bishops look in depth at some general principles. They stake out the Catholic position, then they look to our relations in turn with Eastern Christians and then to believers separated from us by the Reformation.
