The material includes the notebooks, theses, and study material produced and used while Father Maxim studied with the Redemptorists in Belgium, to obtain his Baccalaureate of Theology in 1940, his Doctorate of Theology and his Licentiate in Oriental Languages and History in 1943, and the Maitre Agrege En Theologie for his two theses in 1947. Most of the study notebooks have been stored in file cabinets in the Archives since the time of Nick Yakimishyn. A number of them, however, found in the large green trunk, have been boxed, listed and with the rest of the material from the trunk. Except for the theses themselves which are typewritten in French, most of the papers are hand-written in French.
Series consists of papers from the early pre-Council days of the Theological Commission, and from Vatican II during which time the Synod of Bishops examined the Eastern Code in relation specifically to the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada, as well as considering many other issues. The papers were created in the course of this work, to which are linked the series dealing with Vatican II and with the Synod of Bishops.
The series is comprised of reports, studies, and documents generated by conferences and meetings mainly among Roman Catholics, Anglicans, and Ukrainian Catholics in Canada around the time of the Vatican II Council.
The series is comprised of homilies typed by Metropolitan Maxim in Ukrainian. Box lists, hand-written in English, were created by Sister Cornelia Mantyka, the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg Archives in the 1980s.
The series is comprised of papers often in Latin and Italian, but sometimes in English, generated by the four sessions that comprised the Second Vatican Council from 1962-1965. This includes working drafts, reports, and schemata derived from committee positions held by Metropolitan Maxim.
The series includes papers from the time Metropolitan Hermaniuk was appointed Bishop in Canada and throughout his religious career, spanning the anniversaries and milestones in his life. The documents are both official and personal, greetings, congratulations, and newspaper clippings.
