Winter 2013

In November, the LRI Director had the
honour of sharing a rostrum with Fr
Massimo Pampaloni, SJ, at a conference
at the Gregorian University in Rome. A

professor at the Pontifical Oriental In-
stitute, Pampaloni is an expert in pa-
tristic Christology who is using Lon-
ergan’s technique of dialectic to analyze

the Christological conflicts of the past
and contemporary ecumenical dialogue
with eastern Christians. He pointed out
the ecumenical significance of asking

the right question. Doctrines are for-
mulated in answer to questions. By

returning to the original question we
may be able to break out of the impasse
of opposed traditions of expression and
find a basis for mutual understanding.
