Languages of publication
The essay has three parts. The opening part describes symmetric and asymmetric concepts of a dialogue. The middle section deals with paschal aspects of theology, and the closing one examines paschal dialogics based on the indicated dialogical and theological content. Explanations are drawned from the classical philosophy of dialogue as interpreted in the contemporary philosophical and theological dialogics. The author investigates the soteriological content of Fr Wacław Hryniewicz’s book Outlines of Paschal Theology. The symmetric concept of a dialogue stresses equality of the partners, connected with an innermost experience of ‘I’. The asymmetric concept of a dialogue draws attention to the inequality of the partners resulting from axiological circumstances of their personal lives. Hryniewicz’s paschal theology is centered around the Passion of Jesus Christ seen as the historical events on the one hand, but on the other being relevant in all times and places. The purpose of those events, defined as the Passover, is the salvation of the man and all the universe. The paschal anthropology is focused on the paschal event taking place inside man. It accentuates the relational and ecstatic aspects of the human being, situated at the bases of the salvific dialogue. The elements of the philosophy of dialogue, from which the paschal theology draws its explanations, are two concepts of dialogue: symmetric and asymmetric. Their complementary nature was proved through theological implementation of both dialogical contents. Thanks to this the paschal anthropology revealed the tendency of the philosophical dialogics for self-development within theology.
