55 It is not easily explained why these changes occurred so rapidly and intensively. 56 The power of medicine Given the advances of science and technology, the anthropological reorientation of medicine, the revival of general practice, and the intertwining of social legislation and health care, we can better understand why Van den Berg critiqued the recent and unprecedented power of medicine, and why his critique was well received at the time.

49 In the relatively short period between the second half of the 1960s and the end of the 1970s, drastic changes occurred. Religious beliefs, church involvement and the importance of religion in daily life all became less important. The Catholic part of the population was mostly affected. The large and powerful Catholic network of social institutions and organizations was rapidly dismantled. Catholic intellectuals disseminated new ideas promoting tolerance, freedom of individual conscience in ethical issues, and integration of Catholics into Dutch society.
