GALEANO ATEHORTUA OFM, Adolfo. A New Paradigm in Catholic Theology: Historical-Cosmic Dimensions of Christian Mystery. Cuest. teol. [online]. 2016, vol.43, n.100, pp.359-384. ISSN 0120-131X.

The Second Vatican Council, the overcoming of Scholastic Theology, the Nouvelle Théologie, the Scientific Theology, the Techno-scientific Revolution of Darwin, Einstein and Hubble, and some other characteristic phenomena of Postmodernity are all causing a paradigm shift in Catholic Theology. This shift mostly involves a return to History -in an eschatological sense, according to the Bible- and the assimilation of the new scientific cosmology. Therefore, the article aims to present both the previous dominant paradigm in Catholic Theology and the aforementioned paradigm shift.

Keywords : Nouvelle Théologie; Second Vatican Council; Scientific Revolution; Postmodernity; Eschatology; Paradigm.
