The Critical Spirit: Essays in Honour of Gabriel Daly OSA

    This volume of essays celebrates the seventy-fifth birthday of leading Irish theologian Gabriel Daly. An Augustinian priest for over fifty years, Gabriel Daly lectured at the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy, before moving in the 1980s to teach at the newly-founded School of Hebrew, Biblical and Theological Studies in Trinity College, Dublin. He was actively involved in the foundation of the Irish School of Ecumenics now an Academic Institute of Trinity College Dublin, where he remains a member of the teaching faculty. An internationally-acknowledged expert on Roman Catholic Modernism, his recent contributions to theology have been in the area of creation and ecological ethics, most notably his 1988 work, Creation and Redemption. The relationship between Christian faith and its cultural expression has been a key interest of Gabriel Daly's throughout his career. These essays engage with this theological theme at a number of levels - in scripture, history and philosophy - making it an important resource for the continuing debate on how faith's relationship to culture is to be understood.
