Rev. Dr. Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J. Engages with the Question: Where Do We Stand Today with Regard to "Rerum Novarum?"
Cardinal Avery Dulles gives a short description of Rerum Novarum as the first great social encyclical written by Pope Leo XIII and published in 1891 that dealt with problems that were urgent at the time of its publication, such as the conflict between socialism and capitalism, labor laws and workers’ wages. He discusses the ability of Rerum Novarum to withstand the test of time, as it is still relevant and used as a basis for other, more modern encyclicals.
