I read Louis Bouyer’s fascinating “The Word, the Church, and the Sacraments” and noticed, in the front cover, that the Ignatius Press copy I have doesn’t have an Imprimatur. Instead, there’s a note saying that it’s “published with ecclesiastical approval.”
Can anyone explain to me the difference between these two statuses?
I was surprised that Bouyer’s text, which seems thoroughly orthodox especially considering his position within the Vatican II committees, didn’t have an Imprimatur.
Thanks in advance.
