A teologia como hermenêutica da fronteira

Translated title of the contribution: Theology as a frontier hermeneutics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle



This article aims to clarify the various meanings of a definition of Theology as a frontier hermeneutics. It begins with a number of initial considerations about the concepts of hermeneutics and of frontier. It is within this context that an understanding of the work of Theology is proposed.Under this assumption, this same understanding of theological discourses applied to three ‘frontier’ areas, as a relation between ‘worlds’: faith and reason; Christianity and culture; church and society. The conclusion assumes the application of the meaning of the frontier hermeneutics in these areas for the concrete work of a Faculty of Theology.
