Abstract

This essay develops central themes which I have originally set out in my lecture “A Catholic Modernity?” of 1996. I extend those initial reflections by offering further considerations which I have elucidated over the last 25 years. These include the significance of understanding disenchantment and unbundling in coming to terms with the changes involved in modernity. I also sketch a multi-layered hermeneutical approach for “reading the signs of the times” from a Christian perspective.
