The name of the German theologian: RAHNER

Karl Rahner (1904-1984): was a German Jesuit who made a profound contribution to Catholic theology in the 20th century. His role as a theological expert at the Second Vatican Council, his 1651 publications, his involvement in international theological debate, his impact on students who attended his classes, and his positive reception by many Protestant thinkers, all contributed to his influence on theology today.
