Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that the Leuven votum excels itself in establishing a balanced position on the level of fundamental dogma, and in accentuating exegetical freedom, which - in terms of methodology - was to focus itself on the clarification of the historical meaning of the Scriptures in an academically justifiable manner. In line with the literary genre of this, the practical dimension is then discussed. It is interesting to note that the text in its final form draws attention to fundamental-dogmatic aspects of the theology of revelation as well as exegetical-methodological questions. The chapter returns later to this initial glimpse into the theology of revelation at the end of the 1950s and examines it in more depth within its concrete theological context. Thus, it will be evident that the preconciliar vota deal with a significant variety of themes related to the question of revelation, running from subjects relevant to the domain of fundamental dogmatics.
