Senses of Tradition: Continuity and Development in Catholic Faith

Oxford University Press | English | 2000-09-21 | ISBN: 0195137264 | 264 pages | PDF | 14,8 MB

This book articulates a theory of Catholic tradition that departs from previous understandings. Drawing on the medieval concept of the four-fold sense of scripture, John Thiel proposes four interpretive senses of tradition. He also offers a theory of doctrinal development that reconciles Catholic belief in apostolic authority and continuity of tradition with a critical approach to the evidence of history.
