Congar's Pneumatological Anthropology and Pneumatological Ecclesiology

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents in systematic form Congar’s pneumatological anthropology and pneumatological ecclesiology. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the human person, Congar affirms, is a mystery that heals us from sin and leads us to a new level of participation in the divine life. In contrast to much of the Catholic theology of his era, Congar develops a corresponding pneumatological ecclesiology. The Holy Spirit is co-institutor of the church and principle of the church’s holiness, catholicity, apostolicity, and communion.
