Abstract

Abstract

The degree of Doctor in the Faculty of Theology (honoris causa) of Utrecht University was conferred upon Stanley J. Samartha in 1986. This article is the Dutch translation of a lecture on ‘The cross and the rainbow, Christ in a multi-religious culture’, given at that time to both staff and students of the Utrecht Faculty of Theology.

In this contribution Samartha deals with the place of Christ in a multi-religious society. His main thesis is: it is not the dogmas and doctrines about Christ that have touched the heart and mind of neighbours of other faiths in India, but the life and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, his death and resurrection, the illumination he has brought into the mystery of God and the transforming power he has introduced into human life, moving from self-centredness to God-centredness. He is , one who is truly liberated in life, and therefore, able to liberate others.
