Summary/Abstract: The problem of the theological legitimization of the papacy is traditionally structured in the questions of its possible institution by Jesus Christ (petrinitas), of an eventual succession beginning with Peter until now (perpetuitas) and of the connection of Rome with the “Petrine office” (Romanitas). The article discusses new theological arguments regarding the role of Peter in the NT and the development of the papacy in the form of the primacy of the bishop of Rome in history and sketches some ecumenical perspectives in the context of relevant texts of theological authors and the magisterium on the development of (Catholic) doctrine.
