Through the Lens of the Pure in Heart: Ratzinger’s Theological approach and the interpretation of Revelation

For Ratzinger, the truth of Revelation (as person) cannot be confined to empirical,
positivistic statements. His interpretation of Revelation centres on a deeply
mystical view of faith, which, through the Church, gives access to a real experiential
knowledge of God in Christ. His view of history, tradition and categories of
wisdom and purity of heart give eyes to see the work of the Spirit in symphonicmultiplicity
and facilitate new insights through dialogue with the logos in new
contexts. New insights into Revelation are given without an accommodation to
relativism, the ideological grasping of modernity or the fashionable fluidity of a
postmodern culture.
