Blog Posts Sic et Non: A highly controversial figure throughout the s and 50s, Henri de Lubac – played a prominent role during the Second Vatican Council and was appointed cardinal by Pope John Paul II in His work, which covers an impressive range of theological, philosophical and historical inquiries, has left an indelible mark on modern Christian thought. This volume, including contributions from leading Catholic, Protestant and Anglican scholars of de Lubac’s work, introduces readers to the key features of his theology.

The Eucharist as a Countercultural Liturgy: Pickwick Publications April 14, Since its institution, the Eucharist has been celebrated in all churches regardless of denominational differences. Yet its importance should not be just confined to the Christian communities; it can have transformational power in the cultural milieu. In this book, Yik-Pui Au argues that the Eucharist can be a countercultural liturgy that upholds the identity and values of Christianity by countering cultural currents that are contrary to the Christian faith.


Au takes an interdisciplinary approach comprised of church history, ritual theory, and theology of culture to examine systematically the countercultural functions of the Eucharist interpreted by three modern theologians, Henri de Lubac, John Zizioulas, and Miroslav Volf, representing the Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant traditions respectively. The comparative evaluation of this cross-tradition analysis supports Au’s argument that even though culture is complex and changing, the countercultural function of the Eucharist remains valid.

At the time, intra-Catholic controversies arose around the nouvelle theologie as part of a broader anxiety over the loss of the eternal in twentieth-century Europe. The nouvelle theologiegenerated lubbac debate over the meaning of “the end” that was critical to understanding srnaturel theological, spiritual, and political fissures in the postwar period.

After World War II, de Lubac’s writings increasingly focused on the theology of history and eschatology.

The Mystery of the Supernatural

The present work returns focus to this often neglected aspect of de Lubac’s work. Henri de Surnatuerl is a dominating figure in the renewal of catholic theology in the twentieth century, opposing neo-Thomist orthodoxy with a pluriform and historical notion of tradition based on the creative reappropriation of patristic sources.

De Lubac’s adult life encompasses the whole of what Eric Hobsbawm has called the ‘short’ twentieth century, extending from the outbreak of the First World War inin which he fought, to the collapse of the Soviet Union inthe year in which he died.

This introduction to De Lubac will therefore also provide an overview of the whole of twentieth century French catholic theology. De Lubac’s work extends beyond narrow theological boundaries. Because of this breadth of interest, some areas of his work, such as his political theology and study of Buddhism, have previously received little attention. In bringing figures from other intellectual disciplines into dialogue with Christian scripture and tradition, however, De Lubac reveals the theological significance of their surnaturwl as well as lubacc the insufficiency of their ambivalent attitudes to faith.

This superb volume of essays oubac essential reading for anyone interested in the controversy surrounding Henri de Lubac’s Surnaturel, his questionable understanding of Aquinas on this issue, and the theology of grace and nature more surnzturel.
