Item description for Yves Congar: Theologian of the Church (Louvain Theological & Pastoral Monographs) by Gabriel Flynn...
Overview This volume is a centenary tribute to Yves Cardinal Congar (1904-1995) - French Dominican priest, distinguished Catholic theologian, passionate ecumenist, and a key figure in the renewal of Catholicism in the twentieth century. Examining Congar's role and significance as a theologian of the church, the volume reflects on his contributions to ecumenism, interreligious dialogue, and Catholic theology. The contributors, from nine countries, represent the wide scope of Congar's interests and include such well-known figures as Avery Cardinal Dulles, Kallistos Ware, Fergus Kerr, and John Webster. An important goal of this work is to stimulate renewed engagement with the ressourcement of the Second Vatican Council, for which Congar served as a theological advisor. If this volume helps make the legacy of Vatican II more accessible and more widely applied, it will have rendered fitting tribute to Cardinal Congar.
