1. Roy, Kevin Barry. Baptism, reconciliation and unity : towards a mutual acceptance of baptismal differences.

Degree: 1994, University of South Africa

From earliest times Christians have differed among themselves concerning their understanding and practice of baptism. In the early church of the third and fourth centuries there was a remarkable variety of baptismal practices within the 'One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church', including infant baptism, believers' baptism, delayed baptism, emergency baptism and death-bed baptism. In subsequent centuriest diversity of baptismal views and practices was greatly restricted by ecclesiastical and civil repression. In more recent times increasing religious freedom and the growing fragmentation of 'Christendom' have resulted in various baptismal practices developing, usually associated with certain traditions and denominations. Today, three major baptismal traditions can be identified: Catholic, Reformed and Baptistt each with their own particular insights, strengths and weaknesses. Something of a theological stalemate has been arrived at today in the arena of polemical debate for one particular baptismal position. The visible unity of Christians with one another in the world is intimately linked to their divine calling to be a witness to the saving, healing and reconciling work of God in Christ. The ability of Churches to incorporate legitimate diversity within an authentic unity is vital to their ministry in and to a broken and alienated world. Many differences of baptismal understanding and practice constitute just such a legitimate diversity. In any Christian hierarchy of truths the imperatives of lovet reconciliation and unity must rank higher than matters of baptismal rites and doctrines. To allow baptismal differences, therefore, to divide Christians from one another constitutes a failure of Christian love. Empirical research has revealed a widespread and strong desire for a unity that could transcend baptismal differences. The ideal has already been implemented within a number of individual congregations and in a few denominations and found to be workable. The challenge remains to the wider Christian community to allow genuine freedom of conscience in baptismal matters within one united Christian fellowship. Advisors/Committee Members: Konig, Adrio (advisor).

2. Graber, Anne-Cathy. Marie : une lecture comparée de "Redemptoris Mater" (Jean-Paul II) et du "Commentaire du Magnificat" (Luther) à la lumière des dialogues œcuméniques : Mary : a comparative study of "Redemptoris Mater" (John-Paul Il) and the "Commentary on the Magnificat" (Luther) in the light of ecumenical dialogues.

Degree: Docteur es, Théologie protestante, 2015, Université de Strasbourg

Ce travail a pour objectif de vérifier, à partir du thème Marie (souvent compris comme un des obstacles au rapprochement des Églises), la cohérence du mouvement œcuménique contemporain et la consonance des résultats de ces dialogues avec les enseignements officiels des Églises. Le point de départ de la réflexion est une lecture comparée de Redemptoris Mater de Jean-Paul II et du Commentaire du Magnificat de Luther. Cette comparaison est vérifiée ensuite par des dialogues œcuméniques (luthéro-catholiques, mais aussi pentecôtistes-baptistes, catholiques…) dans une perspective d'interpellations réciproques à propos de la compréhension de Marie dans le mystère de l'Église et du salut. La théologie mariale s’avère être un lieu de vérification œcuménique fécond : elle met en exergue les consensus et clarifie les questions encore ouvertes de la recherche œcuménique, en particulier celle de l’instrumentalité de l’Église.

The role of Mary is often understood as an obstacle to reconciliation between Churches. Using this theme, the dissertation has as its objective the verification of the coherence of the contemporary ecumenical movement aswell as to how the results of the various dialogues correspond to the official teaching of the Churches. The starting point is a comparative study of John-Paul II’s Redemptoris Mater and Luther’s Commentary on theMagnificat. This comparison is then examined in the light of results from various ecumenical dialogues (between Lutherans and Catholics as well as Evangelicals, Pentecostals and Catholics…). Out of the dialogues come reciprocal questions concerning how Mary is understood in the mystery of the Church and of salvation. Marian theology shows itself to be a very fertile method of ecumenical verification, revealing both new consensuses and clarifying issues that remain open for ecumenical research, especially in relation to the instrumentality of the Church.
