In Volume 3 Part 1 of his Opera Omnia, Raimon Panikkar treats a vast array of topics germane to any study or appreciation of Christianity. What is the connection between humanism and the Christian doctrines of the crucifixion? How can a Christian in a religiously plural world claim Christ as the sole mediator of salvation? What do we really mean by salvation in the context of Christian ecclesiology and eschatology? These questions and more are treated in the signature free-flowing, digressive style of this twentieth-century master of theology and world religion.
Raimon Panikkar (1918-2010) made pioneering contributions to interreligious dialogue, comparative theology, and the phenomenology of religion while bridging different religions and cultures (Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism), and advanced the global conversation between the so-called sacred and secular worlds. These diverse contributions were tied together in a unifying vision he called his “cosmotheandric intuition,” the deep interconnection of the Divine, the Cosmic, and the Human.
