La mondialisation du salut

Abstract : The question of individual and collective salvation is of interest not only for religions since it is of central import for the moral identity of our secularized societies. Liberal thinking and politics authorizes itself to be concerned with the salvation of each individual, even against his or her will. A sociological approach enables us to understand what conception of salvation is dominant today and what relationship it maintains with contemporary modalities of belief: transcendence is not in eclipse and salvation remains a topical question within the framework of moral and religious pluralism. However, what place can the Church claim to have in this largely shared reflection? It can neither afford to ignore this question nor to turn away from the imperative of humanization, because the modern world needs to understand its identity in its theological origins. Christian salvation must be saved.
