Fides et Ratio: On the Relationship Between Faith and Reason

Step by step, then, we are assembling the terms of the question. Both the light of reason and the light of faith come from God, he argued; hence there can be no contradiction between them. They had to point as well to natural knowledge of God and to the voice of conscience in every human being cf.

For the Bible, in this foolishness there lies a threat to life. On the contrary, the two modes of knowledge lead to truth in all its fullness. Men and women have at their disposal an array of resources enciclcia generating greater knowledge of truth so that their lives may be ever more human. This wisdom comes to know by way of connaturality; it presupposes faith and eventually formulates its right judgement on the basis of the truth of faith itself: Philosophy provides a language for theology.

Making his own the thought of Greek philosophy, to which he seems to refer in the context, the author affirms that, in reasoning about nature, the human being can rise to God: The Bishop of Hippo succeeded in producing the first great synthesis of fiides and theology, embracing currents of thought both Greek and Latin.

How has the history of humanity revealed or failed to reveal this relationship? In a special way philosophy has made this search its own and, with its specific tools and scholarly methods, has articulated this universal human desire.

To those wishing to know the truth, if they can look beyond themselves and their own concerns, there is given the possibility of taking full and harmonious possession of their lives, precisely by following the path of truth.


Fides et Ratio (Faith and Reason)

In this case, the theologian is summoned not only to explain the concepts and terms used by the Church in her thinking and the development of her teaching, but also to know in depth the philosophical systems which may have influenced those concepts and terms, in order to formulate correct and consistent interpretations of them.

What has been said here of India is no less true for the heritage of the great cultures of China, Japan and the other countries of Asia, as also for the riches of the traditional cultures of Africa, which are for the most part orally transmitted.

From this comes the Magisterium’s duty to discern and promote philosophical thinking which is not at odds with faith. Theology is the study of the Catholic faith with revelation as its first principles.

Fides et ratio – Wikipedia

A Reflection on the Shoah Dominus Iesus. This is what has driven so many enquiries, especially in the scientific field, enciclia in recent centuries have produced important results, leading to genuine progress for all humanity.

From this starting-point, Saint Paul speaks of God as Creator, as the One who transcends all things and gives life to all. All men and women, as I have noted, are in some sense philosophers and have their own philosophical conceptions with which they direct their lives. For its part, dogmatic theology must be able to articulate the universal meaning of the mystery of the One and Triune God and of the economy of salvation, both as a narrative and, above all, in the form of argument.

Yet personal growth and maturity imply that these same truths can be cast into doubt and evaluated through a process of critical enquiry.

This discernment, however, should not be seen as primarily negative, as if the Magisterium intended to abolish or limit any possible mediation. Nonetheless, in the light of faith which finds in Jesus Christ this ultimate meaning, I cannot but encourage philosophers—be they Christian or not—to trust in the power of human reason and not to set themselves goals that are too modest in their philosophizing.


Truth is known through a combination of faith and reason. And it is therefore a search which can reach its end only in reaching the absolute.

Carta Enciclica Fides Et Ratio – Juan Pablo II | Erick Gomez –

These are the challenges which the Chosen People had to confront and to which they had to respond. The truth about himself and his life which Encilica has entrusted to humanity is immersed therefore in time and history; and it was declared once and for endiclica in the mystery of Jesus of Nazareth. In fact, many philosophical opinions—concerning God, the human being, human freedom and ethical behaviour— encuclica the Church directly, because they touch on the revealed truth of which she is the guardian.

But in the light of Christian Revelation what had signified a generic doctrine about the gods assumed a wholly new meaning, signifying now the reflection undertaken by the believer in order to express the true doctrine about God. Fagan developed the book from talks he has given over recent years to professional people interested in learning about the many encyclicals, exhortations, and letters issued by the late pope over his year pontificate.

In the field of scientific research, a positivistic mentality took hold which not only abandoned the Christian vision of the world, but more especially rejected every appeal to a metaphysical or moral vision. It is an illusion to think that faith, tied to weak reasoning, might be more penetrating; on the contrary, faith then runs the grave risk of rstio into myth or superstition.

Man must not only exercise his reason, he must also trust other persons in the search for ultimate truth.
