Eucharist is Love

A Dogmatic and Hermeneutic Understanding of the Salesian Eucharistic Theology in the Calvinistic Era

By Benni Grigoriose Koottanal

The research aims at an indepth study of the Salesian Eucharistic Theology from its contextual and historical backgrounds by enunciating its spirit from the Christological and Biblical perspectives. On the one hand, the study takes into consideration the staunch Eucharistic Theology of John Calvin; on the other, it critically evaluates the teachings of the Council of Trent, taking into consideration the core, as well as, the controversial aspects of the Eucharist, from the Calvinistic and the Catholic perspectives. The author synchronizes and juxtaposes the Catholic teaching in a Salesian perspective, emphasizing "Love" as the foundation of the Eucharist.
