Joseph Ratzinger’s Trinitarian Theology of Culture

Our next monthly meeting will be held on Friday, January 14th, from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing “Joseph Ratzinger’s Trinitarian Theology of Culture” by Tracey Rowland from the Summer 2021 Edition (Volume 48.2) of Communio entitled “Faith and Culture”. The PDF can be downloaded from here.

Given the current situation regarding the pandemic, the meeting will be held over zoom. As we get closer to the date, if public health protocols permit meeting in person, a location will be announced.

The following is taken from the Introduction to the issue:
Tracey Rowland follows Ratzinger in opposing a theological impulse to render the Christian faith fashionable for popular culture in “Joseph Ratzinger’s Trinitarian Theology of Culture.” For Ratzinger, Christianity can only be appealing to and efficacious for the world if its way of being flows out of the heart of its kerygma and its worship. “For a culture to be Christian its foundational mythos needs to be trinitarian and christocentric.” Only such a culture can order those who partake in it toward the sanctification and deification for which all most radically long.
