- n. Plural form of hermeneut.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But rather than merely summarize the document, which should be read in its entirety 13 pages, printed, I shall focus on the main point pressed by hermeneuts of discontinuity.
Once again, the Left party and the Right party among the hermeneuts of discontinuity agree on the diagnosis but not on the prescription.
The hermeneuts of discontinuity are therefore wrong.
But we hermeneuts of continuity are a minority both within and outside the Catholic Church.
But I've also noticed that the hermeneuts of discontinuity take it as confirmation of their position too.
The gravamen of those remarks can be summed up thus: unless and until the hermeneuts of continuity succeed in getting the conclusions of their theory actually embodied in the piety of ordinary Catholics across the board, then that theory is useless.
