    The chapter explores the resonances between the work and vision of the modernist theologian George Tyrrell and the 'modernising' Second Vatican Council. While there are clearly parallels and affinities, the author is careful of too close an identity, partly because of aspects of Tyrrell's temperament which would have left him unsympathetic to the Council. Nevertheless there are sufficient analogies to enable a comparative study of the respective ecclesiologies.
