After nine hundred years : the background of the schism between the Eastern and Western churches by Yves Congar( )

17 editions published between 1959 and 1978 in English and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The traditional date of the beginning of the Oriental Schism is 1054, when the Papal Legate placed on the altar of Santa Sophia the Bull of Excommunication of Michael Cerularius, the Patriarch of Constantinople. In this book the author shows that the seeds of this formal break were sown many centuries before when the creation of Byzantium as a Second Rome, the crowning of Charlemagne as Roman Emperor, and the knife-thrust of Islam divided East and West politically. Further, in the course of the centuries, East and West had developed each its own cultural and intellectual milieu: divergent ways of thinking, a vastly different understanding of the nature of the Church and an ever-growing distrust and disdain. The first steps toward the reconciliation so ardently desired by John XXIII must be taken in humble charity and understanding. The West must accept the East for what it is, and the East must, in turn, come to an understanding of Rome and the West. Only in such an atmosphere of love and forgiveness of the past can the most grievous wound the Church as ever suffered, be healed

28 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tradition, which is the subject of this little book, is not scientific, artistic, sociological or even moral tradition; it is Christian tradition, in the dogmatic sense of the word
A history of theology by Yves Congar( Book )

9 editions published between 1960 and 1996 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is impossible to understand the crucial theological issues of today without some appreciation of the historical roots and development of theology itself. The author here presents a systematic history of theology which is unique in its scope, scholarship and readability. The work begins with a definition of the word "theology" from its early pre-Christian usage to its adoption by the Greek and Latin Christians and thereafter. The history of theology that follows is divided into six eras, each one treated thoroughly and with scholarly care. The author identifies and explains exactly what occurred in theological thought and writing; what events and sources shaped theological development in each era; who the theologians were and what contributions they made; and how new trends in theology took shape and were accepted
The mystery of the church by Yves Congar( Book )

35 editions published between 1941 and 1966 in 3 languages and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The studies in this book are centered around the role of the Holy Spirit in the make-up and life of the Church. Here, the effects of the coming of the Holy Spirit are studied. Here "marks" of the Church are treated theologically, not apologetically. Here, the "ecclesiology" of Aquinas is analyzed in order to clear up certain fixed ideas regarding the "classical" treatment of this subject. Here, the relation between the Holy Spirit and the Mystical Body of Christ is illuminated

Council speeches of Vatican II by Sobór Watykański( Book )

13 editions published in 1964 in English and French and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Pope Paul VI's onwards, theses speeches are full of that affection towards people which looks like what it is. Whether the theme is Christian unity, or anti-Semitism and racial discrimination, the religious freedom of the individual or the value of culture and technology, the brotherhood of clergy and laity or the concept of authority as service--all these speeches are filled with humanity and outspoken honesty. These speeches are the record of a dazzling renewal and the symbol of immeasurable hope; so dynamic, indeed, as to be perhaps disconcerting to those whose Catholicism is much involved with the comfort of familiar habit

Jesus Christ by Yves Congar( Book )

9 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of meditations on Christ as the image of the invisible God, as a man living in history, and as lord of the universe. Though explicitly Thomistic in their orientation, these meditations are richly Biblical as well. Not only does this book bear the stamp of a deep understanding of the best in scholastic thought and in Biblical research, but it also reflects the mature piety of one of the great spiritual writers of the present age of the Church; because above all else this is a book of meditations which are aimed at moving the minds and hearts of men
The mystery of the temple, or, The manner of God's presence to his creatures from Genesis to the Apocalypse by Yves Congar( Book )

8 editions published between 1958 and 1962 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author develops an idea that continually recurred in his "Lay people in the Church', namely, that "the essential point of God's plan and the place of the faithful within it, could be well formulated in terms of a temple built of living stones, for God's whole purpose is to make the human race, created in his image, a living, spiritual temple in which he not only dwells but to which he communicates himself". The author's theme is here no less than the history of God's relations with his creation and especially with man, the entire economy of salvation which develops along a line which embraces the whole of history and the world itself. To this task he brings his exceptional resources of scholarship which are here deployed over the whole range of Scripture studies, Patristics, Biblical archaeology and recent developments in theology to produce a book that has become a standard work of reference for Biblical scholars and students.
