It's my understanding that the Universal and Ordinary Magisterium is infallible (see Vatican I), and included in its expression is the common and constant consent of theologians when they teach doctrines to be de fide or theologically certain (see Pope Pius IX, Tanquerey and Van Noort).  Opposing such doctrines is sinful.

See Pope Pius IX, Tuas Libenter (Denz. 1683-84): http://www.catecheticsonline.com/SourcesofDogma17.php

Yes. But my point was that the consent of theologians at any given point in time to something that is already condemned (Arianism or Modernism, for example) can not be considered to be an act of the Universal Magisterium because the Magisterium cannot teach what it has already condemned.

True, although I would think that those who would attempt to teach heresy or error would therefore cease to be Catholics, as well as Catholic theologians (cf. 1917 CIC, can. 188.4).

Well, of course. You of all people know that I agree with you (see my signature line).
