Abstract

Contextualisation as hermeneutical question
Christian proclamation has always been aware of the need to apply its message meaningfully. As such, contextualisation is a hermeneutical question proper. In modern times contextualisation is given a special meaning. It now refers to meaningfulness in a political context. This critical political paradigm asks why the oppressed receive so little attention in Western theology, This study gives relief to several motifs of the Reformation. A basic pattern is developed in such a way that it is able to establish questions about horizontal love and a just social structure as an important facet of theological reflection.
