ABSTRACT
Until now, the theological climate was profoundly conditioned by Harnak's theory, that seemed to establish an obvious need to de-hellenize Christianity. The Regensburg address by Benedict XVI sparked a genuine revolution on this issue: it is precisely the different attempts at de-hellenizing Christianity, that need to be examined critically, insofar its they divest Christianity of its intrinsic relationship with tile truth. To address the issue of whether it is Christian to de-hellenize Christianity, this article examines the historical development of the stances which call for Christianity to be de-hellenized, studies this question in the theological work of Joseph Ratzinger and in his papal teaching, and gathers together the theological, philosophical and inter-religious debate that this academic lecture has caused.
