    Divine Transcendence and Immanence in the Work of Thomas Aquinas: A Collection of Studies Presented at the Third Conference of the Thomas Instituut Te Utrecht, December 15-17, 2005. [REVIEW]Harm J. M. J. Goris, Herwi Rikhof & Henk J. M. Schoot (eds.) - 2009 - Peeters.
    The terms 'transcendence' and 'immanence' are often used casually and as self-evident. The spatial imagery contained in their meaning determines the way they are understood and used: as opposites, like 'there' and 'here'. As a consequence, the two concepts are seen as mutually exclusive when applied to God's being and to his activity and presence in our world and in our history. This view on the relationship between God and world is characteristic not only of deism and pantheism, but also (...)

    Descensus Ad Inferos: An Exercise in the Interaction Between Art and Theology.Herwi Rikhof - 2011 - Bijdragen 72 (2):123-160.
    Whether art is to be considered a proper locus theologicus, and if so, how is the question that guides an exploration of the interaction between art and theology on the theme of Christ’s descent into hell. For the exploration the difference in the way the descent is represented in East and West is relevant, since in the East this episode of the passion of Christ has developed into the representation of the resurrection. How is this development to be evaluated theologically? (...)

    John Henry Newman on Indwelling and Justification: An Exception to the Anti-Trinitarian Fearfulness of Western Theology?Herwi Rikhof - 2010 - Bijdragen 71 (3):239-267.
    Does John Henri Newman also suffer from the ‘anti-trinitarian fearfulness’ Karl Rahner sees as a characteristic feature of western theology? Rahner refers with that disqualification to a tendency in theology to prefer the gifts of the Spirit to the gift of the Spirit and to the metaphorical interpretation of texts about indwelling. Two texts by Newman are analysed: a Pentecost sermon on indwelling and his Lectures on Justification. In the sermon there is no sign of that anti-trinitarian fearfulness. But since (...)

    Luther und die TrinitätstheologieZu Oswald Bayer: Martin Luthers Theologie. Eine Vergegenwärtigung.Herwi Rikhof - 2006 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 48 (1):74-82.
    ZusammenfassungMein kurzer Beitrag besteht darin, zwei Texte Luthers auszulegen, die in Bayers Buch eine wichtige Rolle spielen, besonders dort, wo die Trinitätstheologie verhandelt wird: den Hymnus »Nun freut euch lieben Christen g'mein« und einen Abschnitt aus dem Großen Katechismus . Bayer benutzt in seiner Analyse des Hymnus zwei Gegensätze, die Luthers neue Einsicht erhellen sollen: der eine betrifft das motivum incarnationis, der andere die Trinitätstheologie. Aufgrund von neueren Forschungen zu Thomas von Aquin und vor dem Hintergrund neuerer Entwicklungen in der (...)

    Ratzinger Revisited: Rereading Einführung in Das Christentum.Herwi Rikhof - 2009 - Bijdragen 70 (1):3-27.
    When the author was asked to present his discipline against the background of Ratzingers Einführung in das Christentum , he was surprised to discover some important difference between this book and his own introductory course. The cardinal remarks in his new introduction that he still thinks that the basic ideas of the Einführung are correct, namely the attention to the question about God and Christ. The analysis of the Einführung concentrates on how Ratzinger poses that question about God. Again and (...)

    The Current Renaissance of the Theology of the Trinity: A Reconstruction.Herwi Rikhof - 2009 - Bijdragen 70 (4):423-457.
    In this reconstruction of the recent renaissance of the theology of the Trinity, the starting point is Rahner’s influential contribution in Mysterium Salutis. Rahner diagnoses how the isolation of this central topic from the rest of theology and spirituality occurred and proposes a therapy with the axiom ‘the economic Trinity is the immanent Trinity and vice versa’. Generally speaking, one can observe a consensus with regard to both diagnosis and therapy. But there are also discussions about the negative evaluation of (...)

    The Treasure of St. Thomas’ Theology of the Trinity.Herwi Rikhof - 2016 - New Blackfriars 97 (1069):250-265.
    One of the treasures of Thomas’ theology of the Trinity is his attention to the mission of the Spirit, to the gift of the Spirit. In this slightly modified version of the 2016 Aquinas Lecture Oxford, three texts are read that show the richness of his attention to the Spirit and that show, too, that often repeated criticism that Thomas forgets the Spirit is incorrect. First, Thomas’ remark that the knowledge of the divine persons is necessary for a correct understanding (...)
