 About the Book

Crossing disciplinary borders, the volume reflects on Congars contribution to ecumenism, interreligious dialogue, and theology, especially that of the Church and of the Holy Spirit. The contributors -- experts in theology, ecumenism, philosophy, and history from nine countries -- are in many respects representative of Congars interests.An important goal of the work is to stimulate a renewed engagement with the ressourcement of the Second Vatican Council, for which Congar served as a theological advisor. If this volume contributes to making this legacy of Vatican II more accessible and more widely applied, it will have rendered fitting tribute to Cardinal Congar.
