He dissects with dispassionate inclusiveness the events surrounding and following the Council of Constance, and he supports the dogmatic validity of its 1415 claim of the supremacy of conciliar authority. He further argues that Constance's teaching is incompatible with the decrees of Vatican I on papal primacy and inerrancy. Together these facts indicate to him that the future health of the institutional Church depends on her officially recognizing the secondary nature of Church structure as well as the relative quality of doctrinal formulations, and the provisional nature of ecclesiologies."
