Catholic nuns group ’stunned’ by Vatican scolding for ’radical feminist’ ideas
(Abaixo, em português)

The US Leadership Conference of Women Religious was shocked that the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith reprimanded the organisation for "for spending too much time on poverty and social justice concerns and not enough on abortion and gay marriage."

But for now, did you know that the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith" is the current name for what used to be known as the Inquisition? Here is the list of names this office has had throughout history:


1542 - Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition

1904 - Renamed Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office

1965 - Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith

1988 - Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (The term 'sacred' was dropped from the name of a bunch of church offices)
