Description

The Nomination of St. Gertrude as a Doctor of the Church is a goal fostered in conjunction since 2012 by the Cistercian Order, Cistercian Order of Strict Observance and Benedictine Congregation of Solesmes. This title means the recognition of her teaching as eminent doctrine, standard involving the aspects of orthodoxy, originality, universality, opportunity, currency and a broad influence of her writings over the centuries. This panel focuses on the three features mentioned at first: Orthodoxy indicates that her doctrine refers to main aspects of the Christian Faith, in full concordance and continuity with the Scriptural, Patristic and Medieval tradition; originality implies that her teaching marks a progress in the comprehension of the content of the faith or proposes a single and peculiar way of access to it; universality means that her doctrine applies to every age, culture, and realms of the Church, for it concerns both the divine revelation and what is truly human. In promoting these panels the Committee looks to awake the interest of the scholarly community towards the Nomination of St. Gertrude as a Doctor of the Church, as well as to foster local contributions about her writings in the wide fields of theology, philosophy, history, linguistic and literary studies.
