Festschrift in Honour of Geraldine Smyth OP – Ecumenical Theologian and Peacebuilder.
Geraldine Smyth OP has had – and continues to have – a profound influence on ecumenical dialogue in Ireland and on the conceptual development of Ecumenics as a field of studies. Her work seeks to place theological understandings in service to and in dialogue with other intellectual disciplines in such a way as to benefit human beings. Her response to ‘the troubles’ that have afflicted her native Belfast and Northern Ireland has shown in particular how a focused, open-minded, peace-directed consciousness can be a balm for a troubled society.
Ecumenics from the Rim
Explorations in Honour of John D’Arcy May.
John O’Grady, Peter Scherle (eds.)
John D'Arcy May's achievements motivate these essays on ecumenics. Amid today's scepticism about the ecumenical movement's relevance, the authors demonstrate the necessity of working together for the betterment of all. This book deepens our understanding of how theology, peace and reconciliation studies and interfaith dialogue critically cooperate for the flourishing of earth's life. The perspective of church unity amid ecclesial division is broadened to embrace interfaith and intercultural issues: ecumenics becomes visible as the intellectual paradigm of our times.
