More Papist than the Pope - 50 Years of the Society of St. Pius X

Päpstlicher als der Papst - 50 Jahre Piusbruderschaft

The Society of St. Pius X was founded exactly 50 years ago by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, and its members were excommunicated by the Vatican 31 years ago. The Society sees the Catholic Church as being on a misguided, modernistic track and rejects the reforms introduced by the Second Vatican Council as a newfangled dilution of the Catholic faith. Nonetheless, discussions have been underway with the Vatican for many years with a view to restoring the unity of the Catholic Church - so far without success. What are the precepts by which the members of the Society of St. Pius X - both priests and laity - live, and on what do they base their view of the church, the world and society? This film examines these questions and traces the difficult history of their relationship with Rome.
