Edward Schillebeeckx: His Theology in the Context of His Time

Nijmegen, 11 May – 1 June 2010


Prof. dr. Mary Catherine Hilkert

Dr. Stephan van Erp


“Theology cannot be simply a question of scholarship pursued within the walls of one’s study, it can only be built up in dialogue...a dialogue which involves our whole lives, whether we shut ourselves off in anxiety or think together with others in hoping and seeking openness. What results from this is not something that can be regarded as a new system, and even less a sceptical `system of the nonsystem’; rather it is a simple reflection about that Christian faith and hope which is `always prepared,’ as a biblical tradition puts it, `to make a defence to anyone who calls us to account for the hope that is in us’ (1 Pet. 3:15). Even for the theologian, theology today is a personal living struggle.”



Edward Schillebeeckx, God the Future of Man, 170-71

Course description
The theological project of Edward Schillebeeckx traces one trajectory in the development of Catholic theology in the twentieth century. This course will explore the evolution in Schillebeeckx’s thought from an early sacramental and dogmatic theology grounded in the thought of Thomas Aquinas, through the turn to history and eschatology in the mid 1960s, to his later focus on radical suffering (negative contrast experience) as the necessary starting point for contemporary theology. A second goal of the course will be to provide an overview of major areas of systematic theology through the lens of Schillebeeckx’s major writings in the areas of Fundamental Theology, Christology/Soteriology, and Ecclesiology/Sacramental Theology.
The course is for bachelor and master students of theology, philosophy and religious studies, and alumni. Students will get 5 ECTS after writing an examination paper.
