Christ and History : The Christology of Bernard Lonergan from 1935 to 1982 (Paperback) (Frederick E.
about this item
Because of illness and age the Jesuit theologian and philosopher Bernard Lonergan never completed the systematic study on Christology, the doctrine concerning the person of Christ, that he had planned to write.Christ and History, written by his former student Frederick E. Crowe, is an attempt to rectify that loss by tracing the outline of Lonergan’s possible work on the subject.
Moving from the Jesuit philosopher’s early student work, through the fertile and productive years in which he wroteInsight and Method in Theology, to his final lectures on the topic, Crowe presents the evolution of Lonergan’s thinking on Christology in the context of the radical developments contained within his other theological writings. Written in the spirit of piety towards his revered teacher, Christ and History is an important analysis of these works and the Christology that they contain.
