Christologie et spiritualité selon Saint Augustin - L'hymne by Verwilghen Albert

By Verwilghen Albert

Centré sur le mystère du Christ, l’hymne de l’Epître aux Philippiens a profondément marqué los angeles pensée et le cœur de Saint Augustin : il a trouvé en Ph 2,5-11 une des bases scripturaires les plus fermes et les plus complètes de sa réflexion christologique, de son itinéraire spirituel et de sa vocation pastorale.

Comme le souligne dans sa préface A.-M. los angeles Bonnardière, l’historienne de l. a. Biblia Augustiniana : « C’est à une lecture – au sens de lectio divina – de l’interprétation d’une des pages les plus christologiques de Paul que nous convie le Père Albert Verwilghen, tel qu’Augustin l’a lu, médité et transmis en s’efforçant de l’actualiser selon les nécessités de l. a. pastorale en Afrique au début du Ve siècle. (…) En réalisant une telle tâche, l’auteur répond au vœu que formulait dans le Supplément au Dictionnaire de l. a. Bible, à l’article Kénose, le Père Henry : « Presque jamais (…) on n’a présenté dans son ensemble l’exégèse d’un Père, ce qui divulge à forcer l. a. portée des témoignages ». Pour ce qu’il en est d’Augustin, le vide est maintenant comblé et il nous est loisible d’évaluer avec justesse los angeles portée de ses appréciations sur l’hymne christologique de l’Epître aux Philippiens. »
