The first step into a different world 10 Feb. 2001
By Arne Marco Kirsebom - Published on
Format: Hardcover
On of the mainissues of the Work of Balthasar is the desire to liberate the theology from its narrow constructed house. He was of the opinion that the greek philosophy does not give the sufficient categories to understand in depth the salvation mystery as made trough the living God. Therefore he tried to retell the whole drama of salvation, the drama of Gods encarnation, the drama of the relation between God and every single person, with the help of the theatral categories.
This first volume of the five volume work "Theodrama" is an introduccion to understand and know the categories. Balthasar works trough the whole history of dramaturgia since the very beginning more than 2500 years ago and passes trough an amount of authors uptil the midst of the 20th century. As always Balthasar normally read all the written work of an author. He analieses their works in their usability to offer categories for the development of the "Theodrama".
It is important to be beware that for the theologican Balthasar is to find and develop an analogy from the categories of the dramatic world to get the possiblity to explain better the drama of God with the world. There are no identity between this categories and the drama of God.
"Theodramatic" is maybe the most important contribution Balthasars to the theology and it is highly recommended to read the five volumes.
