Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on three theological issues that are an intricate part of the context for a contemporary renewal of ecclesiology, namely, the theologies of creation, incarnation, and the sending of the Spirit. A theology of creation deserves special attention, since without a created universe there would be no church. The author divided the chapter into seven parts: (1) the immediate context for the medieval theologies of creation; (2) the wider context found in the history of theological thought on the meaning of salvation; (3) the position of Bonaventure on creation, incarnation, and the mission of the Spirit and its relevance for today's third-millennium world; (4) the position of Scotus on creation, incarnation, and the mission of the Spirit and its relevance for today's third-millennium world; (5) the mystery of evil and the Franciscan tradition; (6) the saving role of the Holy Spirit; and (7) Conclusions.
