1983 Jubilee and other Jubilees


I was born in 1984 so I wasn’t around for the 83 Jubilee. Was it as big a deal as the Great Jubilee of 2000? Was the Holy Door opened and everything? The bios I’ve read of John Paul II don’t even seem to mention the 83 Jubilee but there’s a lot of focus on the 2000 one (like Weigel’s two bios of the Pope).

Were all Jubilees celebrated with the same importance given to the 2000 one?

I can’t seem to find any videos of the 1983 one on YouTube but there are videos of a previous one in 1975.
