Overview

An Apocalypse of Love is a collection of essays on the many facets of Cyril O'Regan's work to date written by both prominent and rising scholars in the fields of philosophy and theology. Essay topics included in this volume range over his entire corpus, including appreciatively critical analyses of his early and current work on Hegel, rhetorical and pedagogical styles, spiritual theology, engagement with Hegel and Heidegger, von Balthasar and John of the Cross, kenosis, Eric Voegelin, his relation to post-moderns such as Lacan and Bataille, and poetry both published and unpublished.

Reviews

"In this exceptional book, Professor Cyril O'Regan unites extraordinary erudition on gnosticism and apocalyptic with contemporary constructive thinking on von Balthasar and Hegel. There is no existing work like this. It will be impossible to read von Balthasar in the future without this profound study on his relation to Hegel and on the book of Revelation. This amazing book is indispensable for understanding four major moments in the Western tradition: apocalyptic, Valentinian gnosticims, Hegel, and von Balthasar." —David Tracy, Greely Professor Emeritus, University of Chicago

A systematic and historical theologian, Jennifer Newsome Martin focuses on 20th century Roman Catholic theology, particularly Trinity and eschatology, the religious character of modern philosophical thought, especially in the German Idealist and Romantic traditions, theological aesthetics, religion and literature, French ressourcement thought, and the nature of tradition. Her first book, Hans Urs von Balthasar and the Critical Appropriation of Russian Religious Thought (University of Notre Dame Press, 2015), one of ten international winners of the 2017 Manfred Lautenschlaeger Award for Theological Promise, analyzes the submerged presence of modern speculative Russian religious thinkers on multiple dimensions of Balthasar's theology. Other work has appeared in Modern Theology, Communio, Spiritus, Horizons, Church Life, and Christianity and Literature, and in several collected volumes of essays.
