  Island of Freedom - Karl Rahner
Karl Rahner, German theologian, is regarded by many as the foremost Roman Catholic theologian of the 20th century.
The principal philosophical influences on Rahner were the 18th-century German philosopher Immanuel Kant, Heidegger, and the Belgian Jesuit Joseph Maréchal, founder of the school of transcendental Thomism, which affirms the insights of Aquinas but analyzes human understanding in light of Kantian critical philosophy.
Rahner's approach to theology is characteristic of the 1930's: a Christian response to the secular loss of the transcendence of God.

 Karl Rahner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Karl Rahner, S.J. March 5, 1904 – March 30, 1984) was one of the most influential Roman Catholic theologians of the 20th century.

 TCRNews.com Retrieving Karl Rahner for Orthodox Catholicism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Rahner himself, and many of his interpreters, have driven a sort of wedge between the fundamental transcendental experience of the human person and the full mosaic of the doctrinal heritage.
Rahner's sociological analysis concludes to the experiential meaninglessness of much of the doctrinal heritage, and he places too much weight on that data, allowing it to control the question of truth itself rather than remaining a pastoral concern.
Rahner wishes instead to emphasize the sign value of the sacraments, convinced that contemporary man does not relate well to the worldview (and understanding of salvation) implied by the causal nature of the sacraments.

Rahner said that he wanted to be “faithful” to his vow of celibacy, but this did not prevent his kneeling before her in a protestation of love.
Rahner’s acceptance of this dogma, says Siri, “is enveloped in a multitude of considerations concerning the common destiny of man; and this with uncertain and sometimes very contradictory nuances, which attenuates the character of doctrinal certainty.
Karl Rahner says, “For theology, Scripture is practically the only material source of the faith, to which it must refer as to the source clearly original, not derived and ‘orma non mormata’.

The censorship on Rahner was reversed in 1963.
Rahner feels that it does not reflect on "the contemporary mentality which sees the world from an evolutionary point of view" (Rahner 1978, 206) by focusing on the person of Christ in his unique individuality and ignoring any possibility of combining the event of Christ with the process of human history as a whole.

Rahner: "When the Vatican declaration against the ordination of women (even in the future) came out a few years back, I published an article saying that it failed to convince me. (Of course, it was not an infallible definition).
Rahner: "The concrete individual theologian will never be able to handle with equal thoroughness every imaginable theological question." People trained in different theological methodologies like the history of dogma, or exegesis, will create different kinds of theology than I do.

 The New York Review of Books: The Dream of Karl Rahner
One thing Rahner's book did was to flush out and banish, once and for all, the closet Platonism that has haunted Christianity for two millennia: the separation of reality into two realms, the spiritual and the material, to which correspond the two "parts" of an equally divided self, soul and body.
However, Rahner firmly believes that orthodoxy does not mean fundamentalism and that the modern believer, in order to be faithful to the Church's doctrine, does not have to commute intellectually between the mythical physics of the Bible, which tells him of miracles, and the scientific physics of Einstein, which lets him launch rockets.
Rahner may be rigorously faithful to the magisterium (official teaching) of the Church, but he is clearly against confounding the inner truths of Christian doctrine with any particular formulations of it, especially those shaped by the categories of Neo-Thomistic philosophy, which he declares to be dead.

 The Religion Report: 14 April  2004  - Centenary of Catholic Theologian Karl Rahner
The German Jesuit Karl Rahner has been described as the architect of the Second Vatican Council, and by general agreement he was the most influential Catholic theologian of the 20th century.
Rahner was at Innsbruck teaching theology; he wrote a few controversial things, he was given what they call something like a partial silence, he was asked to submit all his writings to a Vatican censor before it could be published.
And Rahner said to him, ‘Ottaviani, well a person may renounce a privilege, that privilege I do renounce.’ But then secondly, he speaks rather fondly of the Ottaviani later on that they drove from Rome to I believe it was Munich, and they were in Ottaviani’s Mercedes, I guess he had a chauffer.

Rahner, who died in 1984, was the most influential Catholic theologian of the second half of the 20th century.
But in the hands of some mission theorists, Rahner's theology of the "anonymous Christian" became the opening wedge for arguing that the point of Christian missionary activity was dialogue, not conversion.
But Rahner is not the future of theology, because he mistakenly imagined his fellow German academics to be the forerunners of world culture.

Karl Rahner seems singularly blessed in his students, and has bestowed blessings upon them in offering not rigid positions, but lines of advance.
Rahner has suggested that a "Copernican Revolution" is transpiring in Catholic theology today, a shift from an ecclesiastical to a humancentered theological universe.
Rahner's emphasis upon the humanity of God and its implications for all humanity may carry further themes sounded by Barth late in his life, while Barth's insistence that our theology speak truly of Holy Spirit can caution a chastened theology of experience against premature canonizations.

 KARL RAHNER'S PHILOSOPHICAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE TRINITY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Rahner's own explanation seems rather evangelical: a redemptive-historical approach to the doctrine of the Trinity that the Trinity seen in the salvation history (the economic Trinity) is the real Trinity (the immanent Trinity), and that's all, nothing else.
For Rahner insisted that "'Son' and 'Spirit' should be understood as manners of givenness of the Father."54) This non-personal understanding of the Son and Spirit is clearly seen in his binitarian modalism of psychological analogy.
Karl Rahner found the text uncritical in its analyses, confusing in its attempts to relate the natural and the supernatural, moralizing in its interpretation of contemporary movements.

So, Karl Rahner believed that one could licitly dissent from the faith and moral decisions of the ordinary magisterium of the popes.
Rahner's belief, that the popes had made errors when teaching from their ordinary magisterium, was the most likely basis for his thinking.
Karl Rahner implied (among other allegations of papal error) that the altered judgments of the Pontifical Biblical Commission over the past years were proof that the papal magisterium had made errors in doctrinal matters.

Rahner, "there exists, therefore, and must exist, a teaching of the Church which possesses an importance and binding force for the faith and moral conscience of the individual Catholic, although in what it directly states it cannot and does not intend to make any claim to the absolute assent of faith." According to Fr.
Rahner, is such a teaching (a) irreformable, and (b) does it have any binding character on us in the present if we don't agree with such a teaching?

 Bishop Williamson's Letters: Karl Rahner - Prime Delinquent
Rahner was one of the very most important "periti" or expert theologians at the Council, on which he had an enormous influence.
Thus Rahner, by starting from modern man's wonderful feeling about himself, has arrived immediately at those two major heresies of which Donoso Cortes said that they lie at the root of nearly all modern heresies: the denial of the supernatural and the denial of original sin.
So for Rahner priests should be ready to hold a worldly job to demonstrate that they are on the level with their fellow-men.

Rahner was a basic optimist about culture, so much so that von Balthasar once accused him of negating the necessity of the crucifixion.
Rahner was a peritus, or theological expert, at Vatican II and influenced many conciliar texts.
While Rahner became an icon of the church’s liberal wing, von Balthasar spoke for those who worried the dream of ressourcement, meaning a return to the sources, was being obscured by a post-1968 frenzy of rebellion.
