  • Naar een ontologie van de liefde
    • Authors:
      Abstract: Various signs seem to indicate that the consolidation of public theology has been completed. Yet, some authors have rightly pointed out that public theology still consists of radically different schools and that no consistent paradigm can be identified. This article argues for a continued discussion about the foundations and the profile of public theology, rather than hastily striving for a unified paradigm. The proposal developed in it should therefore be considered as a contribution to this intellectual struggle. The basic assumption is that public theology should be founded on an ontology of love. However, two different conceptions of this ontology can be distinguished, viz. a sacramental conception and a conception focussing on freedom. Following on postmodern criticism of the great Christian narrative of love, it is shown that the conception focussing on freedom seems rather more convincing than the one focussing on the sacramental. This conclusion is affirmed from a historical point of view. After all, even Duns Scotus already showed – for example by means of his Christology – that the relationship between God and man had been intended as a relationship of love right from the start. To be able to enter into this relationship, we have to assume a strong conception of freedom on the side of humanity. For Scotus, the ontology of love is a relationship which comes about as a result of the mutual recognition of divine and human freedom. Therefore, Scotus seems to have developed the theoretical foundations of a conception of the ontology of love, focussing on freedom. At the same time, his innovations appear to have started a historical process from which the secular developed as a domain that is independent from God and which needs to be organized by human freedom. This makes it possible to regard public theology as a branch of theology that enlightens the secular by explaining that human freedom only comes into its own in the acceptance of the divine offer of love.

  • De genade die God schenkt neemt Hij nooit terug (Romeinen 11,29)
    • Authors:
      Abstract: In 2015 the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews published a document called ‘The Gifts and the Calling of God Are Irrevocable’ (Rom 11:29): A Reflection on Theological Questions Pertaining to Catholic–Jewish Relations on the Occasion of the 50th Anniversary of ‘Nostra aetate’ (no. 4). In this article I will focus in particular on some of the theological questions that are addressed in sections 3 through 6: questions that have increasingly been moved into the foreground in the dialogue in recent decades. In particular, I will explore the relation between the old and new covenants, how the uniqueness and universality of salvation in Christ are related to the recognition that God’s covenant with Israel has never been revoked, and the question of the mission to the Jews. In presenting the document and grappling with it, (1) I will glance back briefly and outline the theological status quaestionis, I will then (2) analyze what new developments ‘The Gifts’ formulates. Finally, moving beyond the document, (3) I will engage it in discussion.

  • De dominicaanse missie in Congo
    • Authors:
      Abstract: The Belgian Dominican mission in Congo has had an eventful history. During the eighty years between its start in 1912 and the involuntary pulling out of the last remnants in the 1990s, the various political regimes continually posed new challenges to the mission. In the early years, the Belgian Dominicans went along with the colonial narrative: they considered their work to be a ‘conquest’ in the (spiritual) realm. In doing so, they supported colonial structures and – indirectly – the exploitation of Congo and its peoples. This changed after the Second World War. The missionaries now specifically supported several educational projects which aimed to achieve the emancipation of the Congolese people, contrary to the will of the colonial authorities. Congolese independence in 1960 did not meet with great enthusiasm among the Dominican missionaries, but it would be wrong to assume any sustained resistance to it. Sometimes individual citizens, political groups or local authorities would regard the missionaries as remnants of the colonial era, even though the latter tried to emphasize the independence of the mission from any form of worldly authority. In 1964, existing tensions culminated in the Simba rebellion, which led to the murder of twenty-six Dominican friars and sisters. After the rebellion, the missionaries returned, be it only slowly and in smaller numbers. They were convinced that a ‘new style’ of mission was needed that aimed for a real Africanization of the church. Initially, relations with the Mobutu regime were fairly relaxed, but his policy of ‘Zaireanization’ (started in the early 1970s) posed many problems for the church in Congo. The political situation in the country which, to this day, remains unstable, has forced the Dominicans to keep searching for new ways to fulfil their mission.

  • Wat te doeb voor het einde'
    • Authors:
      Abstract: Attempts to formulate a theological perspective on current ecological debates typically begin with ontological questions: How should the being of creation be understood in its relation to God' How should the being of humans be understood in its relation to the being of other creatures' Privileging these ontological questions as the key to a theological ecology – as has been done most notably in Laudato si’ – is both understandable and yet unsatisfying. Either humanity retains its status on a great chain of being – and thus struggles to avoid granting itself the full privileges of dominion – or else humanity has its status reduced. This reduction takes one of two forms, either by pulling the divine being fully into immanent reality, or by elevating creaturely existence into divinity. This article seeks a different foundation for a theological ecology in the prophetic sign-acts, and thus sets to one side the ontological question. The prophetic sign-acts press the reader away from decisions about ontological standing and towards the necessity of imitation, striving to articulate in one’s body a divine Word. Drawing on the example of the prophets’ deeds, this article argues that a truly radical ecological ethic is possible once the ontological situation is suspended, replaced by a faithful urgency to act in ways that disregard one’s own standing.
