Theology of creation has liberated itself from the shadows of the debate on natural theology. After Moltmann’s explorations on the theme of pneumatology and ecology others have moved towards more reality and experience-oriented conceptions. In this contribution some of these proposals are discussed and recommendations are made in order to develop a pneumatology that is informed by trinitarian-theological insights as well as empirical ecologically informed research.
