O Verbo, arquétipo da comunicação

Nuno Brás Martins

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This article offers a reading of vol. I of Hans Urs von Balthasar’s work Herrlichkeit from the perspective of a theological view of the reality of communication, seeking to show, on the one hand, how this concept is central to Balthasarian thought and, on the other, how Theology itself has a word to say about communication and about its world. Thus parting from the central concept of ‘beauty’, this article shows how the incarnation of the Word constitutes the possibility of an encounter and communication between God and mankind: Christ is the Truth – the truth of God and the truth of mankind – and communicates it in communicating himself, permitting us to participate in its life.
