Vatican overrules Lima's cardinal8 February 2013
The Vatican has effectively overruled the attempt by Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, Archbishop of Lima, to forbid members of the theology department in the Catholic University to continue to teach theology.
This is the effect of a letter sent by Cardinal Gerhard Müller, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), to Cardinal Cipriani. According to a senior church source in Lima who has seen the letter, it asks the cardinal to explain the reasons for his decision, says that for the present the ban is suspended and that the final decision on the matter will be taken by the CDF.
It also turns out that the Vatican decree removing the titles "Catholic" and "Pontifical" from the university has not been put into effect, partly because of reluctance in the Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education.
