Ressourcement: A Movement for Renewal in Twentieth-Century Catholic
Theology provides both a historical and a theological analysis of
the achievements of the renowned generation of theologians whose
influence pervaded French theology and society in the period 1930
to 1960, and beyond. It considers how the principal exponents of
ressourcement, leading Dominicans and Jesuits of the faculties of
Le Saulchoir (Paris) and Lyon-Fourviere, inspired a renaissance in
twentieth-century Catholic theology and initiated a movement for
renewal that contributed to the reforms of the Second Vatican
Council. The book assesses the origins and historical development
of the biblical, liturgical, and patristic ressourcement in France,
Germany, and Belgium, and offers fresh insights into the thought of
the movement's leading scholars. It analyses the fierce
controversies that erupted within the Jesuit and Dominican orders
and between leading ressourcement theologians and the Vatican. The
volume also contributes to the elucidation of the complex question
of terminology, the interpretation of which still engenders
controversy in discussions of ressourcement and nouvelle theologie.
It concludes with reflections on how the most important movement in
twentieth-century Roman Catholic theology continues to impact on
contemporary society and on Catholic and Protestant theological
enquiry in the new millennium.
