Schillebeeckx's Praxis of Creation

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Edward Schillebeeckx’s theology of creation is most clearly expressed in four distinct sources from his later work, though these have a significant structural continuity with material from his early writings before the Second Vatican Council. In fact, when read closely, the various sources have a remarkable continuity of expression, even when the more ephemeral threads of his argument are considered. This is even more striking when the texts are compared in Dutch, showing that at least some of the changes seen in English are introduced by the translation process itself. Reading the texts in parallel allows the development of Schillebeeckx’s thought to be traced, suggesting that there is an important conjunctural shift in his thinking on creation during this time.
