Hundreds of talks about the Second Vatican Council and its legacy have been made available for free online.
The 800 recordings, of courses given at Upholland College in Lancashire between 1975 and 1988, have been digitised by the Liverpool University IT Department, and are to be made available to the public because the committee behind the project believes the message of Vatican II is relevant to today’s Church.
The talks were organised by the Upholland Northern Institute (UNI), which was created by the northern bishops in 1975 to educate lay, clergy and religious in the legacy of Vatican II and now runs adult education courses.
“UNITAPES are a very valuable tool for anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of the faith at this momentous time. They will bring encouragement and hope, “ said Fr Kevin Kelly, the founding director of UNI.
The talks are available for free online, along with a catalogue of all 800 recordings. CDs are also available at cost price, or £3 each.
