METAPHORS OF CHURCH DIVISION: A LESSON FROM POETICAL ECCLESIOLOGY
Languages of publication
This study is divided into three parts. Firstly, it introduces certain new attempts to apply metaphorical theology, primarily those that do not try to relativize classical dogma, but point to the mystery captured by it. Secondly, this study introduces two attempts to apply metaphorical theology to certain ecclesiological questions: biblical pictures of church unity and depictions of the church in church documents (Lumen Gentium) indicating that metaphors should not only be considered individually but in their limiting and enlightening mutual dialogue. Thirdly, the author discusses certain examples of metaphors used in treatises on ecumenical topics and presents a new metaphor of his own. He reveals the way these metaphors shed light on the problem of divisions between churches.
