ABSTRACT The author seeks the foundations which provide a better understanding of the relation theology and philosophy in modern times, from the perspective of a believer. The author classifies six figures or possible ways of understanding the relationship between both disciplines: 1) the figure of identity, which claims that philosophy of a Christian is indiscernible from theology; 2) the figure of difference, according to which philosophy and theology would be non measurable disciplines; 3) the figure of influx, which emphasises the mutual conditioning of philosophy and theology from a historic¾existential point of view; 4) the figure of subordination, which stands for the position that philosophy only achieves its goal with the help of theology; 5) the figure of opposition, which warns of a reciprocal threat between philosophy and theology; and finally 6) the figure of dialogue, supported by the writer, which states that philosophy and theology, without merging, enrich mutually. The article finishes with some considerations and questions about the conditions for a possible dialogue between the theologian and the non believing philosopher
