A Discussion of Iconographic Tradition


While in the past I may have been wary of the nouvelle théologie to one degree or another, their attempt to re-engage with the Church Fathers was praiseworth in intent, if not in execution. In the last year I've gradually drifted away from "Thomism of Strict Observance," not that I ever really considered myself a member of that school of Thomistic theology, though I was willing to read its texts. Having had a chance to delve into the Church Fathers more in the last year, it may be time for me to re-evaluate nouvelle théologie the 20th century Ressourcement movement and its members. (I have been a fan of Fr. Bouyer for quite some time, so I am thinking more of the Jesuits.)
