ELIAS WOLFF
Methodological principles
for a Latin American ecumenical theology

ABSTRACT
Considering the Congress of Panama held in 1916 as the starting point of the ecumenical
movement in Latin America, the dialogue for the promotion of cooperation
in missions and the search for theological convergences between churches has taken
place for more than a century on the continent. Ecumenical history in Latin America
is lived history, but it must also be reflected theologically. This article seeks to identify
in this history the hermeneutic and methodological elements for a theological reading
of the Latin American ecumenical movement. It is an essay on a Latin American
ecumenical theology, and analyzes the semantic evolution of the term ecumenism
and the different conceptions today, and places its Christian specificity in dialogue
with other conceptions of oikoumene. The research method is a qualitative analysis of
literature that deals with ecumenism on the continent. As a result, it hopes to propose
ecumenism as a paradigm of the reflection of the Christian faith, taking a significant
theological, ecclesial, spiritual, and diaconal signifier for churches today.
Keywords: Ecumenism. Theology. Method. Latin America.
