Pneumatologiczny rys paschalnej antropologii Wacława Hryniewicza
Pneumatological Aspect of Wacław Hryniewicz’s Paschal Anthropology
Languages of publication
The question of understanding man is the key one in the theological output of Rev. Wacław Hryniewicz, one of the outstanding contemporary Polish theologians. For about twenty years he has been identified as a great promoter of Christian hope, understood as the hope for universal salvation. This universal concept of hope contains a particular vision of both God and an individual. The Lublin scholar is convinced that an authentic anthropological reflection should be inspired by the central truth of Christianity, which is the Passover. This truth pervades all the dimensions of human life and all man’s actions. That is why Hryniewicz defines his theology of man as paschal theology. In the deep mystery of the Passover Christ is a great commentator of the mystery of man. The gift of being human, the way towards its fullness and renewal is particularly related to the gift of the Holy Spirit that is present and acts within the mystery of the Church. Influenced by the Eastern Christianity tradition, Hryniewicz much emphasizes the pneumatological dimension of the mystery of the new existence an individual receives within the Church.
