Marian Mystery - Outline of a Mariology

SKU: 27830


by: Denis Farkasfalvy, O.Cist.

A major new work this book discuses the development of Catholic doctrine regarding the Blessed Virgin Mary. It begins with a biblical and patristic inquiry about the place and meaning of Mary in salvation history with reference to the Hebrew Scriptures. This approach recognizes that Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2 cannot be read in isolation from the Mariological tradition of the second century which emphasized the Mary/Eve parallel from Genesis. Following the lead of the evangelists, the Church Fathers established the link between Christology and the role of Mary as Virgin and Mother. The writings of key patristic figures including Origen, Athanasius and Ambrose are treated. The key contributions of the Eastern Churches are outlined.

The Protestant introduced new problems which this work addresses. The doctrine of Mary 's sinlessness, leasing to the formulation of the doctrine of her Immaculate Conception is thoroughly treated, as is her Assumption into heaven and her role as Mother of the Church. The damage done by much modern speculative theology largely stems from the failure to distinguish fact from fiction in the study of Mariology.
