MHFM: This is an interesting quote about how some groups recognized, during Vatican II, that its teaching on the Jews in Nostra Aetate was revolutionary and heretical.
Giuseppe Alberigo, History of Vatican II, Volume 5, pp. 214-215: “… the attacks still being made during these days in numerous pamphlets distributed in the hall. One of the most typical was the document, signed by twenty-eight traditionalist associations, that circulated among the fathers during the days just before the vote [about Nostra Aetate]… In it, the bishops prepared to vote in favor of the declaration were described as heretics, and the Council was said to lack any authority to change the… attitude of the Church’s Magisterium.”
