Analogia entis, analogia fidei. Karl Barth dialoga con teólogos católicos
A hundred years after the publication of the first edition of the commentary to the Epistle of the Romans (1919), the famous Barthian consideration of the analogia entis as "an invention of the Antichrist" and "the reason why I cannot become a Catholic" regains its prevalence. Nonetheless, this assertion has evolved as time goes by. In this article, we will study the answers given by Catholic thinkers as Erich Przywara, Gottlieb Sohngen, Jerome Hamer, Henri Bouillard, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Hans Kung, and some more recent authors of the Italian and Anglo-Saxon areas. The opposition between analogia entis and analogia relationis, concretized in analogia fidei, has developed several interpretations in different directions. This article will suggest the continuity between both dimensions -which are inseparably united to charity- by alluding to their Trinitarian origin.
