    „Netiesinės“ teologijos gimimas“ iš kun. Česlovo Kavaliausko rankraščių
    [“Non-linear” theology from the manuscripts of the priest Česlovas Kavaliauskas]
    research article
    Soter : religijos mokslo žurnalas. Kaunas; Vilnius : Vytauto Didžiojo universitetas; Versus Aureus, 2016, T. 60(88), p. 9-29
    By mentioning non-linear theology as a project, Č. Kavaliauskas reveals how to enrich Catholic theology with methods of exact sciences. The turning point in physics, when physicists started mastering the most complicated non-linear phenomena of the reality, was the reason why Č. Kavaliauskas called theology “non-linear”. Synergetic processes could be mentioned here as well. According to the theologian, the analogue of the Gospel is Jesus Christ himself, who is absolutely free, sublime, merciful, carrying God’s Filiation, bringing back to life the ones who were fallen and dead, praising the man and sacrificing His life on the cross. Č. Kavaliauskas mentions endless generosity, defeating the death, resurrection, opening of the eternal life and our redeeming in the revelation of God.
