Catholic: Paradoxical Identities
Superficially banal, this question has been answered in many different ways through history. Postmodernity’s apparent overcoming of many of the certainties of modernity encourages us to think of Catholic identity in paradoxical ways; reflecting on these paradoxical forms is helpful in a time when identities of many kinds, religious and other, are becoming increasingly tribal, fundamentalist, and mutually exclusive.
McCosker's lecture argued for an understanding of catholicity which is relatively thin and plural yet anchored in the identity of Christ and the Church’s tradition, in dialogue with recent philosophy, sociology, and theology.
