Abstract and Keywords
This essay considers Catholic theology between 1500 and 1700. Theology of this period was an essential point of reference for such theologians as Cardinal Newman, but is today unfortunately neglected. This was the period that saw the flowering of the great schools of Thomistic interpretation, as well as much important mystical writing, especially by Carmelites. Disciples of Duns Scotus made significant contributions to Christology and Mariology. During these centuries scholars laid the foundations for modern study of the Patristic period, and developed detailed reflection on the nature and purpose of interreligious dialogue. Many of the distinctive themes of twentieth century theology--from Thomist to those of the ressourcement school--find their roots in this period.
