Description

Presenting a broad analysis of Brazilian theologian Leonardo Boff's ecclesiology, this text shows its roots, both in the conciliar theology in the aftermath of Vatican II, in the tradition of Franciscan spirituality, and above all in the experiences of the Basic Christian Communities. In Brazil, the Basic Christian Communities have become a popular movement and a new form of church, and Boff interprets this experience as a rebirth of the church among the poor. The text analyzes the conflict between Boff and the Vatican over his book "Church: Charisma and Power", for which the Vatican's Congregation of Faith punished Boff with a year of "silencio obsequioso".
