(p.181) 5 Doing Theology with Cornelio Fabro
Catholic Theology after Kierkegaard

Chapter 5 surveys the constructive theological features of the underexplored writings of the Italian Thomist, Cornelio Fabro (1911–1995). This chapter sets the stage of Fabro’s historical context to suggest that Fabro’s loyalty to the Thomist revival after Aeterni Patris should not be interpreted as incompatible with his desire to negotiate the claims of the modern world. Instead, it focuses on Fabro’s recovery of Thomas Kierkegaard’s writings as a way into understanding Fabro’s wider project of renewal in Catholic theology in the modern age. In particular, this chapter explores Fabro’s writings on the Leonine revival of Thomism, modern atheism, and his treatment of Kierkegaard’s Mariology and Ecclesiology, which Fabro compares with that of John Henry Newman.

Keywords:   Cornelio Fabro, Thomism, Kierkegaard, Leonine Revival, atheism, Mariology, Ecclesiology, John Henry Newman
