Leahy's Marian Principle in the Ecclesiology of Hans Urs von Balthasar is an original and at the same time faithful exposition of an important aspect of von Balthasar's work. Leahy first sets the stage by tracing the Marian principle from the patristic and medieval periods up to Vatican II and John Paul II's Mulieris dignitatem. Then he gathers together the intuitions, hints, and references to that principle in von Balthasar's works. Leahy explains the relation of the Marian principle to other principles such as the Petrine, Pauline, Johannine, and Jacobine. These are not abstract principles, but 'profiles' or 'dimensions' in the Church, universal experiences built upon concrete persons.

About the Author:

Rev. Brendan Leahy is Professor of Systematic Theology at the Pontifical University of St. Patrick's College, Maynooth, in Ireland. He is a von Balthasar scholar and an ecumenist and has also authored articles and books on interreligious dialogue, issues facing the Church in the 21st century, renewal in the Church, and the priesthood.

Review:

'For Balthasar, Mary represents Christian discipleship, the perfect yes of faith, transparency to God and the vocation to love. In this book, Brendan Leahy explores Balthasar's vision of Mary and her relevance for the Church, for Mary and the Church are one in their fundamental vocation. In an era when John Paul II has helped us rediscover the Petrine ministry in the Church, Balthasar brings us back to the Marian principle of faith and love without which the Petrine principle could not bear fruit. Here is a book which leads us to the heart of the mystery of the Church.' --John O Donnell, S.J., Weston School of Theology Cambridge, Mass.

'Attentive readers will be enriched not only in their ecclesiology and Mariology, but also in their trinitarian theology and Christology as well. Abundant references to the writings of Adrienne von Speyr manifest her profound and extensive influence on Balthasar's theology, particularly on his Marian principle.' --Frederick M. Jelly, O.P., Professor of Theology Mount St. Mary Sem., MD

'Leahy has succeeded in bringing into relief the structure or logic of von Balthasar's mariology. The Marian Principle in the Ecclesiology of Hans Urs von Balthasar represents a significant contribution to a deeper understanding of von Balthasar's mariology.' --Dr. David Schindler, Editor of Hans Urs von Balthasar: His Life and Work
