By Matthew Levering

In Mary’s physically Assumption, Matthew Levering provides a latest rationalization and security of the Catholic doctrine of Mary’s physically Assumption. He asks: How does the Church justify a doctrine that doesn't have specific biblical or first-century ancient proof to help it? With the aim of exploring this query extra deeply, he divides his dialogue into sections, one old and the opposite systematic. Levering’s historic part goals to retrieve the wealthy Mariological doctrine of the mid-twentieth century. He introduces the improvement of Mariology in Catholic Magisterial files, targeting Pope Pius XII’s encyclical Munificentissimus Deus of 1950, within which the physically Assumption of Mary used to be dogmatically outlined, and later Magisterial records, Vatican II’s Lumen Gentium and Pope John Paul II’s Redemptoris Mater. Levering addresses the paintings of the neo-scholastic theologians Joseph Duhr, Aloïs Janssens, and Réginald Garrigou-Lagrange ahead of turning to the nice theologians of the nouvelle théologie—Karl Rahner, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Louis Bouyer, Joseph Ratzinger—and their emphasis on biblical typology. utilizing John Henry Newman as a consultant, Levering organizes his systematic part via the 3 pillars of the doctrine on which Mary’s Assumption rests: biblical typology, the Church as authoritative interpreter of divine revelation lower than the advice of the Holy Spirit, and the fittingness of Mary’s Assumption when it comes to the opposite mysteries of religion. Levering’s ecumenical contribution is an important engagement with Protestant biblical students and theologians; it's also a reclamation of Mariology as a important subject in Catholic theology.
