Cardinal Levada, Indian bishops focus on 'pluralist' theologians

Catholic World News - January 21, 2011

The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has joined Indian bishops in a week-long discussion of that country's theologians.

Cardinal William Levada has joined 28 Indian bishops and 26 theologians in the closed-door discussions, which are being held in Bangalore. “We are discussing the role of the Indian theologians as responsible theologians,” said Cardinal Oswald Gracias, the president of the Indian bishops’ conference.

The discussions reportedly center on inculturation, pluralism, and the unique role of Christ and the Church in salvation. In India, some influential theologians have argued that Christianity is one of many different routes to salvation and truth: an argument that appeals to India’s tradition of religious pluralism, but falls short of Catholic orthodoxy.
