Dr. Paul Lakeland describes Rerum Novarum as the founding document of the tradition of Catholic social teaching. He discusses both the opportunism of its publication and the importance and relativity it still holds in today’s Church and society regarding topics like workers’ wages, workers’ treatment and preferential treatment for the poor.
