Grace and Human Freedom in the Theology of Henri Bouillard

Author:

Ph.D, University of Toronto (St. Michaels)

This monograph is a pioneering exploration of the theological category of human freedom as the animating centre of the thought of Henri Bouillard, SJ, a leader of the “Ressourcement” movement in French Roman Catholic theology in the middle of the 20th century. The work also serves as a comprehensive analysis of Bouillard’s corpus of writings spanning the years 1940 to 1981.

Bouillard’s contribution to a much studied movement have been in the shadows of better known colleagues such as Henri de Lubac. Dr Scully’s research helps to introduce an important theologian to the English-speaking world and to situate within the theological and ecclesial controversies prior to the Second Vatican Council the key issues ,ideas and formulations that were to serve as the basis of Bouillard’s theology of Human Freedom. Both de Lubac and Karl Rahner as well as Karl Barth recognized Bouillard’s original contribution to the renewal of fundamental theology ans well as his vital reanimating of Thomism in our time.

“A fine study…an important addition to any academic library or research collection of contemporary Theology.”
Professor Andrew Woznicki, SC, STD, University of San Francisco
