WHAT IS TRUTH? FROM THE ACADEMY TO THE VATICAN

VIEWS: 5 PAGES: 1

Rist defends a rigorous sense of the development of doctrine, and of human understanding in general, through six thematic tropes: the incompleteness of the traditional sense of man's status as imago Dei; righdy understanding freedom and divine justice in the face of original sin; our inadequate appreciation of the place of "beauty" in the theology of creation as well as ethics; the significance of the doctrinal, and therefore cultural, authority of the Catholic Church in relation to the state; the need for the languages of "rights" and "dignity" to interpenetrate and resuscitate each other; and, finally, the relation in general of Catholicism to modernity and the role of the papacy in historical development.
