Show Summary Details


This chapter introduces the Receptive Ecumenism and Catholic Learning project, the key thinking that drives it, and its core theological, ecclesiological, and practical implications. It unfolds in five steps. The first section briefly identifies the fundamental ecclesial-theological context and presuppositions within which the project is situated. The second and third sections deal, respectively, with the broader intellectual and ecclesial-historical contexts that have also helped shape the thinking and vision at work in the project. Sections four and five give full articulation to the twin key concepts of Receptive Ecumenism and Catholic Learning.

Keywords: Catholicism; Receptive Ecumenism; Catholic learning; ecclesial-theological context; ecclesial-historical context
