Chapter Summary

The second point of departure for our journey is the philosophical starting point. Every ecclesiology, Anglican, Protestant, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Independent, Free Church, and Roman Catholic, involves some form of philosophical thinking. In order to provide some sort of organization, clarity, and also delineation, the chapter is divided into three main parts. The three main parts, however, do not present a total picture of Franciscan philosophy. Rather, they offer an insight into key issues that have a major bearing on the focus of this volume: the eventual presentation of a relational theology of church for the third millennium. 1. The theme and goal of this chapter. 2. The philosophical starting point: relational being 3. Conclusions.

Keywords: Franciscan philosophy; relational theology; Roman Catholic
