The term, People of God, was employed by Lumen Gentium at Vatican II to describe the Church. Since the early part of this century this theme has been subject to intensive reflection and research. A concise history of this academic work up until the time of the Council has been provided by Y. Congar, R. Schnackenburg and J. Dupont. Needless to say, these articles focus on the theoretical concerns of specialists engaged in biblical and theological studies.
