Traditions et ruptures,
Antonianum, 79/1 (2004) p. 45-77
Summary : This study integrates the event of rupture in the concept of tradition, before examining in a critical manner the identity vectors of the Order of the Minors, namely contemplation or the prayer of faith, fraternity, the mission which results from this, minority (including poverty and solidarity), and the formation that preaching or the mission requires. This critical reflection particularly highlights the historical role of the institution and its emblems. Without them, the singular intuition will seek its institutional mediations apart from its native social and spiritual (ecclesiastical) background.
