• 1936-1939: Machtübernahme und Vertreibung durch die Nazis, die Theologie in Innsbruck wurde geschlossen
• 1948-1964: Rahner gilt als Revoluzzer und wird vor dem Konzil von den eigenen Leuten ruhig gestellt
• 1981 bis zu seinem Tod 1984: diese Zeit ist gezeichnet vom bedrohlichen Gesundheitszustand des Theologen
Karl Rahner galt als Großer Denker in einer engstirnigen Welt
Grundlegende Arbeiten seines reichen publizistischen Wirkens sind in diesen drei Abschnitten entstanden. Diesen "Innsbrucker Jahren" widmet Martin Kolozs in seiner Biografie besondere Aufmerksamkeit und zeigt Anknüpfungspunkte zu Papst Franziskus und dessen "Kirche der Sünder" auf.
