Abstract

An adequate and up-to-date theological education, faithful to the revelation and tradition, but at the same time adapted to the context, has been an important concern of the Church. The challenges that theological education faces today are many: keeping scientific rigour and enthusiasm; responding to the changes and trends in the culture; keeping fidelity to the mystery of faith; integrating new scientific knowledge and methods; guarding against fundamentalist tendencies which challenge scientific methods and rigour; contextual theological education; etc.
