The Reason for the Institution of this Most Holy Sacrament Dz Our Savior, therefore, when about to depart from this world to the Father, instituted this sacrament in which He poured forth, as it were, the riches of His divine love for men, "making a remembrance of his wonderful works" Ps ,4 , and He commanded us in the consuming of it to cherish His "memory" 1Co 11,24 , and "to show forth his death until He come" to judge the world 1Co 11, But He wished that this sacrament be received as the spiritual food of souls Mt 26,26 , by which they may be nourished and strengthened [can. He wished, furthermore, that this be a pledge of our future glory and of everlasting happiness, and thus be a symbol of that one "body" of which He Himself is the "head" 1Co 11,23 Ep 5,23 , and to which He wished us to be united, as members, by the closest bond of faith, hope, and charity, that we might "all speak the same thing and there might be no schisms among us" cf. I and 3] with His body and soul. Therefore, it is very true that as much is contained under either species as under both.

The original edition of the Enchiridion was the idea of Heinrich Denzinger —83 , a priest and professor of dogmatic theology in Wurzburg, Germany. Denzinger was distressed by what he perceived as a neglect of the positive documents on faith and morals promulgated by the authority of the Church. Thus, in his first edition, he compiled some ecclesiastical documents in Latin translation that included symbols or professions of the faith, decrees and declarations of councils both provincial and ecumenical and papal decrees up to the pontificate of Pius IX.
Curiously, he did not include any of the texts of the Council of Trent. The sixth through the ninth editions — of Denzinger were overseen by Ignaz Stahl, a privatdozent and honorary professor at the University of Wurzburg.
Under Stahl, the number of documents increased to with the inclusion of documents from Trent, the constitutions of Vatican I and more papal encyclicals.
The first nine editions had been produced by Oskar Stahel of Wurzburg. The tenth through thirteenth editions —21 were overseen by Clemens Bannwart, S. Umberg, S. Making use of the best research of his day, Bannwart completely revised the first part of Denzinger on the creeds.
In addition, he reworked the systematic index according to ten main categories, an arrangement that figured largely in the handbooks of dogmatic theology up until Vatican II. Johannes B. Umberg was a specialist in sacramental theology, and he included more documents in that area as well as references to the Code of Canon Law.
He also reintroduced a section on moral theology into the Index, arranging it according to the decalogue. The twenty-eighth through the thirty-first editions —57 were overseen by Karl Rahner , S. In the twenty-eight edition, Rahner asked for suggestions for a revised edition of "Denzinger. The revisions foreseen by Rahner were undertaken by Adolf Schonmetzer, S. In thirty-second edition of , Schonmetzer included close to more documents and expanded about others. He revised the section on the creeds as well as the introductions, the numbering system and the Index.
However, he did not include any of the documents of Vatican II since he planned to publish these in a separate volume that also would include other recent magisterial documents. Schonmetzer did not see this project to completion.
The idea was to completely update the Enchiridion with the addition of key texts of Vatican II and postconciliar documents. Hunermann and his assistants likewise revised the original texts according to the most recent critical editions and provided changes and additions to the introductions and Index as needed. Hunermann decided to provide German translations on pages opposite to the original texts in Greek, Latin and other languages.
The numbering system of Schonmetzer was retained but expanded. In , a CD-ROM version of the thirty-seventh edition was produced that extended the texts up to , ending with the Dec. An Italian bilingual version of the edition appeared in , and a second Italian version was produced in This will be the first English translation of Denzinger to appear since that of the thirtieth edition produced by Roy J.
Deferrari in A handbook in English that serves the same purpose as Denzinger in many respects is the volume edited by J. Neuner and J.
Whereas the documents in Denzinger are arranged chronologically, those in Neuner and Dupuis are arranged topically according to headings such as "Revelation and Faith," "Tradition and Scripture," etc.
The documentation in Neuner and Dupuis is not as extensive as that of Denzinger, but it does have the advantage of topical arrangement for those who are interested in documents pertaining to a certain subject.
While prominent theologians such as Karl Rahner and Yves Congar have warned about the dangers of "Denzinger theology," there is no doubt that the Enchiridion is an important resource for students, theologians, teachers and pastors.
