IV. Interpretation - The meaning of our words and symbols
- A Treasure in Earthen Vessels: An Instrument for an Ecumenical Reflection on Hermeneutics
- This text explores the complex but often creative field of hermeneutics - the interpretation of texts, symbols, and rites - and its role in the search for visible church unity. It invites us to reflect on how we approach and evaluate one another's language and symbols, as a contribution to mutual understanding among Christians and churches.
