The Catholic Generation of 1930

(p.156) 6 The Catholic Generation of 1930
An Avant-garde Theological Generation

Jon Kirwan

Oxford University Press

This chapter builds on the previous one and shows how, in important respects, the project of the nouveaux théologiens mirrored the thinking that defined the wider generation of 1930. It demonstrates that the Fourvière Jesuits and Le Saulchoir Dominicans acted as a particular unit of this generation through their sense of mission to engage with the contemporary crisis, which was inspired by those formative influences on the unit which were examined earlier. In particular the chapter considers how the categories of history, phenomenology, and engagement structured their thought during these years in works such as de Lubac’s Catholicism and Chenu’s Une École de théologie. Moreover, this work is set within the context of wider Catholic thought during the period, which was dominated by thinkers such as Jacques Maritain.

Keywords:   de lubac, Congar, Chenu’s Une École, ecumenism, Maritain, nouveaux théologiens
