Abstract

ROQUES, Mark. Richard Rohr, Mysticism and Neoplatonism. Koers (Online) [online]. 2021, vol.86, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 2304-8557.  http://dx.doi.org/10.19108/KOERS.86.1.2498.

This paper explores key themes and doctrines in the writings of popular Franciscan priest Richard Rohr It examines and evaluates Rohr's incarnational worldview. It argues that Rohrs mysticism must be understood in the light of pagan Neoplatonism. Rohr follows Plotinus, the founder of Neoplatonism by asserting that God lives in the deepest part of every human being whereas the New Testament teaches that God live sin every person who welcomes Him.God dwells in people by His Holy Spirit when they repent and believe the good news of Jesus' death and resurrection.

Keywords : Richard Rohr; mysticism; Neoplatonism.
