Round of 16: Moltmann vs. Congar

For the first game in the Round of 16 Jürgen Moltmann meets Yves Congar.

Moltmann is most famous for his trilogy: Theology of Hope (1964), The Crucified God (1972), and The Church in the Power of the Spirit (1975). His influence has reached well beyond his own reformed tradition, and is ofthe cited as a major figure in all forms of political theology, regardless of denomination.

Congar was a Dominican Priset and a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. Very active in the ecumenical mocement, his probably most well-know work is the three volume pneumatology I believe in the Holy Spirit. Congar is often considered one of the greatest Catholic theologians of the 20th century.
