Description : This creative argument that traditions are neither found nor made, but are invented and reinvented in practice, is carried out in dialogue with scholars such as Yves Congar and George Lindbeck. Tilley examines the actual practices as the bearers of tradition and argues that vibrant and meaningful traditions must be reinvented or reconstructed in every generation. He demonstrates how deliberately invented or imposed traditions are often resisted. Tilley applies his analysis to the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and, in the last chapter, shows how truth, revelation, and authority can be accommodated by a constructivist, practical theology of tradition.
