Abstract

The contribution of this article is twofold. Firstly, the author points out the basic inspiration contained in the first half of Dei verbum. Secondly, he also highlights the further development of theological reflection in the field. This enquiry reveals the weak points of Dei verbum such as the issue of the so-called natural revelation and a deeper reflection on the possibility of Mariological inspirations in the field of the theology of word. Furthermore, the development of theological hermeneutics in general and the theological problem of inculturation in particular represents the most profound shift in the last fifty years. This shift must be reflected as a complementary perspective to what Dei verbum teaches about the apostolic tradition. Indeed, it is necessary to clearly distinguish the apostolic tradition (which is ‘above’ cultures) from ecclesial traditions (‘within’ cultures). The author further suggests some changes in the Czech translation of the text of the constitution. Moreover, he stresses the importance of the “Notification” which specifies the authority of the constitution and the document on The Historicity of the Gospels issued by the Pontifical Biblical Commission.
