Blurb/Shorttext:
In the ecumenical field, some Church representatives observed the ecumenical work is most of the time approached from a doctrinal level, neglecting the spirituality which is behind the doctrines. This, in their opinion, is one of the reasons for crises in ecumenism. This volume aims to observing how spirituality can shape, refresh and even correct theology within the ecumenical context. In particular it takes the writings of St Isaac of Niniveh and St Thérèse of Lisieux, trying to observe how their spirituality influenced and even corrected the theology of their times. Both of them are good examples of the fact the saints are the best ecumenists and, in consequence, looking at their spiritual theology is a valuable method for doing ecumenism. This volume urges the ecumenical workers to consider spirituality when doing ecumenical work on the base that, reverberating into the dogmatic realm, it will do away with many misunderstandings and so it will be able to surpass the blockage the ecumenical movement goes through and to take further the ecumenical work towards its very aim – “ut unum sint”.
