The French Oratorian priest Louis Bouyer was one of the most comprehensive, influential, and prescient theologians of the twentieth century, but only in recent years have some major European studies begun to uncover the rich treasury of his thought. In the present book, the first of its kind in English, Keith Lemna contributes to this body of scholarship a thorough study of Bouyer’s cosmological vision.
Commencing with his seminal monograph Cosmos: The World and the Glory of God, Lemna explores in depth Bouyer’s sophiological and apocalyptic theology of creation, detailing especially his profound engagement with scientific, philosophical, religio-mythic, and poetic cosmologies. As the work of possibly the greatest twentieth-century Catholic “sophiologist,” the French theologian’s cosmology emerges as a path forward for a much-needed reintegration of human knowledge centered on the Mystery at the heart of God’s eternal Wisdom revealed in the economy of grace.
