This is the first full biography of one of the greatest Roman Catholic theologians of the last century. Schillebeeckx is alive and still writing important work.

He is a Dutch Dominican and theological genius whose influence on the Second Vatican Council was very profound. He was regarded as the thological voice of progressive Catholicism. But in 1968 the Vativcan Authorities started an investigation into his orthodoxy and a great many Catholics also felt that this was an attack on them.

This is above all an intellectual biography - a work in which changes which are preciptible in his piublished work have been connected with the contemporarty changes in the social, cultural, theological and ecclesiastical landscape. So this is a study of Schillebeeckx which puts him in his history- it is a new perspective of his ultimate significance for the church and for the development of theology.

The aim of Erik Borgman in this book is to increase the knowledge of Schillebeeckx`s theology by fully explaining its context.
