This short essay gives a brief outline of Paul VI’s pontificate (1963-1978). It focuses on the following topics: Paul VI’s efforts to lead and implement the Second Vatican Council; his reforms of ecclesiastical institutions; the resistances to change by conservative Catholics and their sway over Pope Montini and the Roman Curia; the problematic moral teaching of Paul VI; his effort for a Church that keeps its role as expert in human affairs, although in a non-confessional way.
