La Théologie. Une anthologie, tome III
Collection Initiations générales
576 pages - déc. 2010
A religion more adapted to the individual, a strong presence of the lay community, an arduous effort to reform the Church, even society: all these things emerged in the 16th century, sometimes pointing the way to the radical subjectivism of modernity. With its return to classic philosophical and Biblical sources, the invention of printing and new ways of seeing the world, religion and man, the Renaissance laid the way for these changes. But with the 16th century Reforms, the specifically theological effort became more intense, strongly proclaiming the transcendence of God’s grace, establishing man’s salvation and Christian freedom in a new manner. Personal faith was pivotal; free will based on the Gospel which was brought into the forefront - even though Christianity was ultimately divided by confessional conflicts. Hence the great debates in this book. Justification by faith takes a central place, as does the practice of the renewed faith, even in its minority expressions such as mysticism. But life in society and social problems are also a place of renewed Christianity’s expression. Three essential challenges merit our attention: colonisation and the development of missions; confronting new scientific discoveries, especially in cosmology; and the question of tolerance, posed in a new way by the divisions within Christianity and the evolution towards often intolerant confessional groups. We can also perceive – at least in filigree - the spiritual and intellectual posterity of those theological changes that appeared at the time of the Renaissance and the Reforms.
