Chapter Summary

Two specific goals dominate this chapter. The first goal is the presentation and clarification of the phrase: a relational theology of the church for the third millennium. In the Roman Catholic Church, scholastic issues, based on Aristotle, became essential aspects of post-Reformation Catholic ecclesiology. The second goal for the chapter is to indicate in a clear way how specific themes from the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition can energize a relational ecclesiology. The chapter is divided as follows: 1. The theology of God shapes and colors ecclesiology in a primary and fundamental way. 2. A theology of church is related to the kingdom of God. 3. Institutional and charismatic church leadership. 4. Concluding Observations.

Keywords: post-Reformation Catholic ecclesiology; relational theology; Roman Catholic Church; third millennium
