Languages of publication
This article explores the phenomenon of new communities within the Catholic Church. Particular attention is paid to communities that originated in France during the 20th century. The aim is to provide a basic reflection of this issue which has not yet been systematically studied. The article reflects the theological significance of the new communities, particularly in relation to the Second Vatican Council. It also addresses the terminology and temporal definition of the phenomenon. It consequently reflects on the context of the French church and society, as well as certain critical aspects of these new communities. The last section outlines a basic classification of these communities that was created according to the main characteristics of their spirituality, as well as a brief overview of the most significant communities. The article concludes with suggestions for further theological research on the phenomenon.
