I'm a home schooling dad putting together a high school level scripture course for a few of my children.
I want to spend at least 1 lecture on church pronouncements that relate to scripture and how we should understand and approach scripture, but I cannot locate a good list. Here is what I am looking for.
7 Great ecumenical councils: There are no pronouncements on scriptures per se? Right?
Other Dogmatic councils:
Florence I found some relating to canon
Trent I found some relating to canon
Vatican I found great examples
Vatican II again great examples
Any other councils that had dogmatic declarations on scripture?
- Papal Encyclicals. So far I have found only these: a. Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Letter On the Study of Sacred Scripture, Providentissimus Deus, 1893 b. Pope Benedict XV, Encyclical Letter Commemorating the Fifteenth Centenary of the Death of St. Jerome, Spiritus Paraclitus, 1920 c. Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Letter Promoting Biblical Studies, Divino Afflante Spiritu, 1943 d. same above: Human Generis (indirectly)
What am I missing?
Pontifical Biblical Commissions. Do these carry official teaching authority weight? If yes, how do I approach this ... Is there a list of critical pronouncements by the PBC?
Any other sources of official catholic teaching on scripture?
