"The Syllabus of Errors, the Church versus the Modern World"

In 1864 Pope Pius IX issued the Syllabus of Errors which was a list of 80 statements which he considered erroneous. They were a direct attack on liberalism, modernism, moral relativism and the secularization of society. John will cover the religious and political situation in mid 19th century Europe which led to the issuance of the syllabus, discuss the syllabus itself and then relate certain items which he personally experienced as a 1950's Catholic School kid and how the Second Vatican Council in the mid 1960's steered Catholic teaching in a different direction although some proponents of the Syllabus still exist in the Church.
