Fox being interviewed by
Fox: Matthew Fox is the popular and controversial theologian and author
of 30 books, translated into 48 languages, that recover the mystical
tradition of Christianity. His Original Blessing was a landmark in
understanding this tradition. Fox's books also emphasize social,
ecological, and gender justice. He is founder and director of the
Institute of Culture and Creation Spirituality in Oakland, CA.
A member of the Dominican Order for 34 years, Fox was silenced by the
Vatican in 1989 and formally dismissed in 1993. Now an Episcopal
minister, he travels extensively, sharing his radical vision of a
Christianity that leans toward mysticism rather than orthodoxy, Divine
Feminism rather than patriarchy.

The late scientist and mystic Teilhard de Chardin commented that the
Cosmic Christ represents the third nature of Christ that few seem
interested in. But today, with the ecological peril facing the earth,
with religious wars heating up and deep ecumenism more needed than ever,
with humanity out of kilter with too much patriarchy and too little of
the Divine Feminine, we need to bring alive the Cosmic Christ, the
wisdom and nature-based mystical traditions, the re-uniting of
cosmology, science and spirituality and the Sacred marriage of the
Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine. Hildegard of Bingen is one of many
mystics devoted to these issues and we will include her, Mary Oliver,
Teilhard de Chardin, Albert Einstein, and others. We will also engage in
practices such as the new “Stations of the Cosmic Christ” that Matthew
Fox and Bishop Marc Andrus are developing out of Grace Cathedral in San
Drawing from Fox's latest book:
ORDER THE BOOK
For the almost 1.2 billion Catholics around the world–310 million of
them in the US alone–October, 2012 will mark the historic canonization
and declaration as Doctor of the Church of 12th century Benedictine nun
Hildegard of Bingen by Pope Benedict XVI. She will be only the fourth
woman to have this honor bestowed on her.
In an era when women were marginalized, Hildegard was an outspoken,
controversial figure who exemplified the divine feminine, sought justice
for the poor, and demonstrated a passion for the earth and its
creatures, emphasizing the oneness of reality. Yet so visionary was her
insight, she was sought out by kings, popes, abbots, and bishops for
Today, along with being honored and celebrated through many websites and
Hildegard groups for her teachings, philosophy, art, and music,
Hildegard is being recognized for her immense contribution to our
understanding of our spiritual relationship to nature–a contribution
that touches head-on key issues faced by our planet in the 21st century,
particularly with regard to the environment and ecology.
