Obras esenciales para estudiantes de Teología

Posted by Unknown  |  at   10:01

Gracias a mi amigo Rubén García he conocido esta lista de obras esenciales que el eminente profesor Gerald O'Collins recomendaba en el año 1999 a sus alumnos en la Universidad Gregoriana. La posteo completamente para que te sea más fácil copiarla.

Some Basic Books for Theology (a reference list compiled for students by Gerald O'Collins, S.J. of the Gregorian University in Rome). Feb 15, 1999

I Essential

Note: "Essential" means here "you should have a copy on your desk";

"very useful" means "you could profitably have in your personal library a copy of some books in this section";

"basic reference books" means "you should at least know where these works are found in your college and/or university library."

A Bible in English: one of the more useful is The New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocryphal / Deuterocanonical Books in the NRSV translation (Oxford University Press, 1991). While you might use the NAB, NIV, NJB and REB, you should note that no edition of the NIV has the deuterocanonical books. Please do not use Good News for Modern Man (=TEV).

Denziger-Schönmetzer, Enchiridion symbolorum etc., 36th ed. (Herder 1976); DS is the classic collection of excerpts from Church documents, arranged chronologically and in the original language. P. Hünnerman edited a 37th ed. (Herder, 1991), which includes documents down to December 1988 and in which a German translation faces the original texts (=DH). This same edition has also appeared with an Italian translation facing the original texts (Edizioni Dehoniane [Bologna], 1995, and with a French translation facing the original texts (Cerf. [Paris], 1996).

J. Neuner & J. Dupuis (edd.), The Christian Faith, 6th ed. (Theological Publications in India - Alba House - HarperCollins, 1996). ND is the best version available in English of key excerpts, arranged systematically, from Church documents; this new edition is notably expanded and updated to May 1995.

The Documents of Vatican II: Flannery's edition, although the translation is not always quite accurate, is preferable to Abbott's, inter alia because it includes the post-conciliar documents. See also the original Latin text and English translation in N.P. Tanner (ed.) Decrees of the Ecumenical Councils, 2nd vol. (Sheed and Ward - Georgetown University Press, 1990) 820-1135.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1992.

N. Freeman (ed.), Anchor Bible Dictionary (ABD), 6 vols. (Doubleday, 1992).

A. Di Berardino (ed.) Encyclopedia of the Early Church, 2 vols. (James Clarke & Oxford University Press [New York], 1992); very helpful on the individual Fathers, early heresies, and the first General Councils.

M. Eliade (ed.), The Encyclopedia of Religion, 15 vols. (Macmillan -Collier Macmillan, 1987).

The Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible(IBD), 4 vols. + supplementary vol. (Abingdon Press, 1962 & 1976).

This work gives the full texts in the original language with an English translation, whereas DS (or DH) and ND give selected excerpts. Yet note that DS (or DH) and ND are more comprehensive in that they provide creeds and documents from popes and non-ecumenical councils.

H. Vorgrimler (ed.) Commentary on the Documents of Vatican II, 5 vols. (Herder & Herder - Burns & Oates, 1967-69).

P.S. It is worth learning German to be able to use the following works:

W. Kasper et al. (edd.), Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche, 3rd ed. (Herder, 1993- ).

G. Krause & G. Müller (edd.), Theologischer Realenzyklopädie (Walter de Gruyter, 1977- ).

-- We are very grateful to Fr. O'Collins for permission to use this list. Please send in other suggestions and lists. Of course, it is impossible to have one list that would be totally complete. Perhaps one should add the caution that one can only use Kittel while keeping in mind the corrective critique of someone like James Barr in his The Semantics of Biblical Language (Oxford University Press). And even for a Catholic reading public, a good book giving Reformation and Protestant creeds and confessions would be helpful. (PPK)
