Nouvelle Théologie and Sacramental Ontology

Hans Boersma (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter reiterates that nouvelle théologie is best interpreted not as a stepping stone between Modernism and post-Vatican II pluralism, but as an attempt to recover the mystery of God by means of a sacramental ontology. It briefly outlines some of the significant implications that this understanding of the ressourcement movement holds for ecumenism. Spiritual interpretation, reintegration of Scripture and tradition, and communion ecclesiology are among the most urgently required means to advance the unity of the Church. The re-appropriation of a sacramental ontology may provide a mindset that will open up avenues for a common return to mystery.

Keywords:   modernism, Vatican II, pluralism, ecumenism, mystery, spiritual interpretation, tradition, communion ecclesiology
