PATHS OF SYNODALITY Interconfessional Theological Perspectives

Being together on the way – being “synodal” – highlights the community and dynamic character of Christian discipleship. However, Christian confessions have interpreted – and still interpret – the synodal dimension of the Church with different emphases and underlining. The three essays that make up the volume allow us to grasp the different sensitivities Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox look at this dimension of the Church with. They do this by retracing the history of the concept (as in the contribution dedicated to Catholic reflection signed by Riccardo Battocchio), but also by comparing the positions of some theologians (as does Basilio Petrà in the contribution dedicated to Orthodoxy) or some practices (the chosen perspective by Gianni Genre to talk about the Reformation Churches). The purpose of the volume is to highlight what each confession treasures by underlining the openings present in them, so that Christians, in addition to recognizing the gifts they already share, can discover unexplored paths, and find the courage to follow them.
