The word Magisterium refers to the teaching authority of the Catholic Church through the Pope and other bishops. This page provides links to a few documents of the Church that pertain to education specifically, or have implication for education, and thus for the mission of Catholic schools and universities.
The focus is on recent encyclicals and foundational documents such as the Second Vatican Council's declaration on education. Selected other documents from the Congregation of Catholic Education are also listed, as is the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church. All documents are available in multiple languages.
