Title: Sacramentality and the Theology of Creation
Subtitle: A Recovered Paradigm for Sacramental Theology
Author(s): IRWIN, Kevin W.
Journal: Louvain Studies
Volume: 23 Issue: 2 Date: summer 1998
The purpose of this article is twofold. It will offer positive and negative observations on the way contemporary theologians have often used the paradigms of Christ and the church as 'sacraments' for understanding the theology of the seven sacraments and it will propose that a return to emphasizing a positive theology of creation and sacramentality, characteristic of the Catholic tradition, can offer a most helpful complimentary and contemporary paradigm for sacramental theology.
