Ex Corde Ecclesia

Pope John Paul II's Apostolic Consitiution Ex Corde Ecclesia

On August 15, 1990, Pope John Paul II issued his text on Catholic higher education, Ex Corde Ecclesia (From the Heart of the Church). The document outlines in general terms the papal vision of the identity and mission of Catholic universities and sets forth specific norms to accomplish this. From the viewpoint of this document, Benedictine University is an institution that is a Catholic university and the principles of the Apostolic Constitution do apply.
