Theology of the Sacrament of Holy Unction in the Roman Cat holic Church

pages: 291-310


In this paper is presented an overview of liturgical–theological understanding of the Sacrament in history. Explanation of sacraments will be accompanied by appropriate evidence from Holy Scripture, as well as works of certain early Christian Fathers of the Church. Then, relevant theological, sacramental aspects of the Middle ages, the age of Scholasticism, the Council of Trent, and finally, the Second Vatican Council will be consulted, where there will be left a theological reflection of individual prominent Roman Catholic and Orthodox theologians of the Sacrament of Holy Unction. In this work we will put emphasis on the observation of liturgical–theological view on Sacraments in accordance with its ecclesiological, Christological, eschatological, pneumatological meaning and experience of the life of the Church.
