Receptive Ecumenism, Ecclesial Learning, and the ‘Tribe’

Receptive Ecumenism, Ecclesial Learning, and the ‘Tribe’

(p.333) 23 Receptive Ecumenism, Ecclesial Learning, and the ‘Tribe’
Receptive Ecumenism and the Call to Catholic Learning

James Sweeney, CP

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the following questions: How can the underlying processes of communal identity formation be accommodated? How will it be possible to get beyond the simple tribalism of establishing identity over, against, and, even hostile to, the foreign ‘other’? Can we envisage a shift in favour of an ‘ecumenical tribe’? These questions are explored in four movements: Catholic identity, between the universal and the particular; receptive ecumenical learning: the overcoming of tribal prejudice; irreducible difference: the limits of receptive ecumenical learning; and discerning the conditions for receptive ecumenical learning.

Keywords:   communal identity, tribalism, tribal prejudice, Catholic identity, ecumenical learning
