Scope and content
File consists of an interview with Cardinal Adrianus Simonis interviewed by Peter Naus in The Netherlands. The print of Cardinal Simonis is from the shoulder up wearing his clerical collar; the background is blurry. The interview is transcribed and available electronically or in hard copy. All recordings and transcriptions are in Dutch. Brief English notes from the interviewer are available in the file. They include: "I was pleasantly surprised the Cardinal decided to keep the appointment for the interview, despite having returned from Rome a couple of days before. I wonder if Maria ter Steeg put in a good word for me. At any rate, the interview went well, except it was a little rushed because the Cardinal arrived late and had an appointment immediately following our session. He was self-assured and did not hesitate to give his opinion on Henri and his publications. He is no fan of the latter, although his comments about Henri were rather positive! I prompted him to talk at some length about the changes in Dutch Roman Catholicism after the Second Vatican Council, because these changes are part of the context in which Henri decided to leave Holland for good. The Cardinal has a reputation of being rather conservative - he prefers to call it 'orthodox' - and the interview illustrates it rather well. He was quite amiable and willing to participate in the project".
