The positive elements of this debate were assembled in the Dogmatic Constitution Dei Filiusin which for the first time an Ecumenical Council—in this case, the First Vatican Council—pronounced solemnly on the relationship between reason and faith. Each member of the faculty has a responsibility to reflect on ways in which his or her research contributes to the universitys identity, especially as described in ex corde ecclesiae, whether in general or in specific, as is appropriate to.
