Example text

It is characterized by an intention to clear up misunderstandings and to strive for truth. It is executed through comparison and explanation. The central focus of the method is to expose the intended meaning of particular doctrines, to evaluate what is meant by their correspondence with the ‘fundament’ and by their compatibility with the teaching of the other communion. The exact character of this ‘fundament’, which is basic to the reached agreement, is not clear. This is because some of the documents use ambiguous language to describe the ‘basic agreement’.

While the Malta Report asserted that the reality of God can only be reached through our particular and historical understandings of it,60 The Eucharist focuses on the common interpretative framework within which traditionally controverted positions can be reworked. Although the relation between the common doxological celebration of the Eucharist and its theological explication is explained as the Lutheran or Roman Catholic understanding (cf. the Malta Report), the understanding is of a different kind.

The text is based on two differing forms of ‘negative compatibility’. The first form of compatibility is conditional. It states that there is no fundamental difference between Lutheran and Roman Catholic forms of thought and therefore they are potentially compatible. The second form of compatibility concerns the relation between individual theological positions and the critical instance of the doctrine of justification. Theological positions are compatible if they do not contradict the doctrine of justification.
