Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the conclusive remarks of the book which explores the theology of religions expressed in Secretariat for Non-Christians (SNC) / Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue (PCID) documentation and, consequently, the theological foundations for relations between Christians and non-Christians, in particular between Christians and Muslims. The study shows that there is a continuous inter-relationship between philosophy and theology in Roman Catholic theological thinking. Consequently, throughout SNC/ PCID documentation there is a dialectical tension between philosophy and theology, reason and faith. The study also shows the dominance in SNC/PCID documentation of the so-called fulfilment theory. This fulfilment theory is basically an Aristotelian theory based on the principle of potentiality and actuality, finality.

Keywords: Aristotelian theory; Christians; fulfilment theory; non-Christians; pontifical council for interreligious dialogue (PCID); Roman Catholic theology; secretariat for non-Christians (SNC); SNC/ PCID documentation; theology of religions
