IN a post-Dominus Iesus age, Catholic theologians are called to avoid christological proposals rooted in the context of interreligious dialogue that radically revise the meaning of both the scriptural and conciliar traditions. It is no longer possible to avoid or explain away central texts and tenets of the faith because they are inconvenient for dialogue. There is a sense that canon and creed must be embraced if theologians wish to have any impactful future in shaping interreligious dialogue in the Church. What to do, then, when one theologian is both an exemplar of christological revisionism as well as a resource for a fresh engagement with orthodoxy? That is what my article seeks to explore with the figure of Raimundo Panikkar.
