There are three modes of infallibility in the Church:[list]
*]extraordinary papal magisterium, also known as papal infallibility or ex cathedra
*]extraordinary magisterium of ecumenical councils
*]ordinary and universal magisterium[/list]
There have been 21 ecumenical councils in the history of the Church, not counting the council of Jerusalem described in Acts. It is fairly easy to get a handle on these, with only a few minor points of dispute.
There have been 2, or 7, or 13, or 28 ex cathedra proclamations, depending on whose list you use. But we’ve already had several threads on this topic, so I don’t need to start a new one.
However, it seems that Catholics are all over the map when it comes to determining which Church teachings are infallible by the ordinary and universal magisterium. Everyone has different opinions about this, e.g., whether the Church’s teaching on immorality of contraception is infallible via the ordinary and universal magisterium.
What I’d like to do in this thread is come up with a list of which Church teachings have been explicitly identified by the magisterium as being infallible via the ordinary and universal magisterium. Of course, the premier example of such a teaching is the impossibility of ordaining women to the priesthood, which is identified as infallible via the ordinary and universal magisterium in Ordinatio Sacerdotalis.
I’m interested in seeing how many other teachings have been explicitly identified as infallible by the ordinary and universal magisterium.
