Authors: Toth, Beata # ×
Issue Date: 10-Jul-2009
Series Title: Studia phaenomenologica: Romanian journal for phenomenology pages:255-267
Abstract: While the notion of gift has received much scholarly attention
in recent philosophical discussion, theology appears as being
too strongly dependent on philosophy by being oblivious of its
own resources within the rich theological tradition concerning the
Trinitarian community of loving gift exchange. After considering the
possibility of a transition from a faith-informed phenomenology to
phenomenologically inspired theology, the essay examines two early
tests cases, Hilary of Poitiers and Augustine of Hippo, where the relationship
these authors saw between gift and love within the life of
the economic and the immanent Trinity can be archeologically traced.
