Process Theology

One of the world’s most famous 20th-century Jesuits is Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, an adventurous theologian who studied paleontology in China. Like many Jesuits, Teilhard de Chardin was an intellectual and scientist. 
He helped develop a school of evolutionary Christianity, now called process theology, that continues to grow in renown in the 21st century. As a result of his visionary cosmological thinking, however, Teilhard de Chardin was criticized by the Vatican in the 1950s. 
Such official sanctions have happened more than once to Jesuits. The Jesuits have long been associated with radical actions, thinking and idealism.
