    Abstract:
    During the last forty years of the Protestant-Catholic dialogue was there any real change in dogmatic substance? Was the underlying theological question of justification by faith alone of 1517 really solved and thus the way to unity and reconciliation opened? The Roman Catholic Church of today is in many ways dissimilar to the church known by Luther, Calvin and Zwingli. Nevertheless, a deeper analysis of the Protestant Catholic interchange demonstrates that Rome is having a dialogue with other Christians only on its own terms. The Roman Catholic Church has never changed its doctrinal position and does not intend to do so in the future. Moreover, a careful reading of the Lutheran-Catholic dialogue indicates that contemporary Protestant leaders have abandoned the bold attitude of the Reformers, especially their position on the key biblical teaching on justification by faith alone. It is ignored and occasionally denied.
