AUC Theologica is a peer-reviewed journal for theology published twice a year. As we publish original papers in English, German, French, and Italian, our mission is to serve as a platform both for Czech researchers, who can present their research results in these languages, and for international contributors, who are invited to enter the academic theological discussion in the heart of Europe.

The journal focuses on a wide range of theological disciplines, such as systematic theology, biblical studies, patristic studies, pastoral and spiritual theology, religious education, church history, etc. Within these fields, the journal seeks to reflect the current theological questions and problems, which often requires interdisciplinary approaches. Supporting the intersection of various theological disciplines, we thus also welcome theological papers touching other academic fields including philosophy, sociology, literary studies, and science.

Each issue consists of two sections. The thematic section presents papers of the same focus. The section called ‘Varia’ invites papers dealing with various theological themes from the perspective of all Christian traditions. Our current and past issues are approachable for free on this website in the form of Open Access.

[“The human-relational person”: Possible dialogue between Jacques Lacan's triad and Trinitarian ontology]

The present study deals with the term desire (desiderio, Wunsch) in Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalytic approach and aims to find common intersections with Klaus Hemmerle’s vision of Trinitarian ontology. For modern psychology, desire as a constitutive element of the human person is a criterion that distinguishes the human person from the animal. Extinguishing desire in the human person brings many problems in society. If a person wants to fulfill desire that has a relational character with material things, he or she becomes frustrated. Both Jacques Lacan and Klaus Hemmerle have developed the issue of the desire of the human person in their approaches and thus offer certain solutions to the problem of the extinction of desire in the human person.
