Abstract:

Honors the work of William P. Loewe, systematic theologian and specialist in the theology of Bernard Lonergan. For over three decades his writings have sought to make classic christological and soteriological doctrines comprehensible to a Catholic church that is working to integrate individual subjectivity, communal living, and historical consciousness in the wake of the Second Vatican Council, and his career provides a model for theologians attempting to build bridges between the past and the present, and between the church and the world. Essays included in this volume assess Loewe's reinterpretation of patristic and medieval christology from Iraenaeus to Anselm of Canterbury, and explain the significance of the theology of Lonergan and Loewe for the fields of soteriology, economics, family life, and interreligious theology. While Lonergan's "transcendental Thomism" has been criticized by both traditionalists and revisionists, essays in this collection apply Loewe's methodology in a variety of ways to demonstrate that time-honored doctrines about Christ can be transplanted into new cultural contexts and gain intelligibility and credibility in this process.
