Languages of publication



The Article titled „ The historical changes of the anthropological contribution to theology” consists of the following parts: Introduction; 1. From the critical evaluation of the tractates to their renewal; 2. The issue of anthropology as a challenge to faith; 3. Perspectives for theologicalanthropology; Conclusion. The traditional handbook, faces many different anthropological questions, however it treats them in many different area’s set apart from each other, on the grounds of it’s inspiration as well as it’s method; De Gratia, De Deo creante et elevante, De peccato originali, De virtutibus, De novissimis. Placing the topic of person in so many different context’s, can lead to the notion that the entire discourse was boundless, reducing the anthropological issue only to certain matters that had to do with the nature of the person. Due to the dispersion of tractates and to the separation from thought in general, these issues are not capable of creating an extensive synthetic prospect of the person. Anyhow faith can not abandon the limited knowledge of the person in the light of the mystery of Christ. If one wishes to overcome these problems, it is imperative to find the cause of portioning the anthropological contribution. The new tractate concerning the person does not apply to any one part of Revelation but describes the whole aspect of Revelation. This new presentation of the tractate De homine can be expressed in it’s program title theological – anthropology.
