Summary

The chapter addresses the procedural aspects of the Second Vatican Council with a comparison to the preceding councils (Trent and Vatican I), and through an analysis of the different kinds of membership of the council: the council fathers, the periti, the commissions, and the informal groups. The final part explains the rules for drafting, voting, and approving documents, and examines the fundamental differences between the Second Vatican Council and other legislative, parliamentary assemblies.
