Dharma, Hindu and Christian According to Roberto de Nobili

Caste in the ecclesial community is still a problem in the indian Church. An interest in this problem at the early period of Western Christianity in India led the author to study the writings of Roberto de Nobili (1577-1656). De Nobili was the first European to understand the Hindu Society from its own scriptures and traditions. One of the central concepts that sums up the life of the Hindus is that of dharma. A study of the Nobili's method of adoption of certain customs and synbols of the Hindus without a study of how far de Nobili understood some of the central concepts of Hinduism is incomplete. This work in Dharma, Hindu and Christian, according to Roberto De Nobili is the first study in this line. It centres around the concept of dharma, but it also evaluates the related socio-ethico-religious concepts of Hinduism. Such a study is broader in scope than that of the Hindu caste dharma. It tries to show that this first Christian encounter with Hinduism by de Nobili is quite profound, despite the limitations of the apologetic theology with which de Nobili worked in the presentation of Christianity.

Saggi storici intorno al papato

Al compiersi, nell'autunno del 1957, del primo 25mo di attivita della Facolta di Storia Ecclesiastica della Pontificia Universita Gregoriana, fu deciso di preparare un volume miscellaneo con studi dei professori della Facolta su argomenti di Storia del Papato. La ricorrenza offre l'opportunita di rifare il cammino della Facolta rievocando le circostanze che portarono alla sua istituzione, riflettendo sulla struttura che essa ha acquistato e facendo un bilancio del lavoro da essa svolto. Gia prima del riordinamento degli studi sacri, la Gregoriana progettava di creare un Istituto o almeno degli speciali corsi di Storia e di critica, al fine di preparare piu convenientemente quei suoi alunni delle diverse nazioni che erano destinati ad insegnare la Storia della Chiesa nelle Facolta Teologiche. A consigliare poi l'istituzione di una propria Facolta venne opportuna la Costituzione Apostolica Deus scientiarum Dominus con le annesse Ordinationes.

Towards an Ecumenical Paradigm for Christian Mission

Toward this visionary paradigm, the ecclesiological basis has a crucial task. As sacrament the Church is the sign and instrument for the coming unity of humankind. In this respect, an adequate ecclesiology has to present the Church as the Church for others. The Church's existence must reveal the Kingdom of God, not only as the fulfillment of the Church but also as the future of the world. This vision is not so far above; if theology is considered as a science through which God becomes comprehensible and accessible to people of all cultural and religious backgrounds. Thus, the author creates a new paradigm for Christian Mission which could be stated in the words of Pope Benedict, As Christian...

The divine right of the papacy in recent ecumenical theology

Since the second Vatican Council, ecumenical interest in papal primacy has taken a new turn. Not since the sixteenth century has there been such lively discussion on its meaning and on the kinds of justification given to it. One major problem raised in recent ecumenical, theological and official interconfessional dialogue is the Catholic claim that Roman primacy is iure divino. The purpose of this study is to examine the meaning of the iure divino qualification of papal primacy as it has been taught and understood in the Catholic, Lutheran and Anglican traditions. Moreover, we shall investigate, by means of an historical and systematic inquiry, the meaning of ius divinum when applied to eccl...
