Abstract

Indonesia is the home of the largest single Muslim community of the world. Its Christian community, about 10% of the population, has until now received no overall description in English. Through cooperation of 26 Indonesian and European scholars, Protestants and Catholics, a broad and balanced picture is given of its 24 million Christians. This book sketches the growth of Christianity during the Portuguese period (1511-1605), it presents a fair account of developments under the Dutch colonial administration (1605-1942) and is more elaborate for the period of the Indonesian Republic (since 1945). It emphasizes the regional differences in this huge country, because most Christians live outside the main island of Java. Muslim-Christian relations, as well as the tensions between foreign missionaries and local theology, receive special attention.

Abstract

German and Finnish theologians discuss the basic questions of Christian mysticism based on authors from the Orient. These authors from the Iraqi-Iranian sphere (Aphrahat the Persian manner, Babai the Great, St. Hierotheos, Isaac of Nineveh, Makarios), play a crucial role in the field of Christian-Oriental mysticism. At the same time they take contributions also beyond this geographic area and go to the mysticism in the German context after Luther (Brandt, Kant) and provide a review, a critical voice to the concept of mysticism and its positioning in the German theology.

Abstract

What correlations exist between law and religion? To trace this relationship in selected periods and regions (the old East / Ancient, modern Europe, Islamic world) is the goal of this volume. As a specific thematic reference point, the editors have selected those tense relationship that exists between the law as a divine constitution and the law as a human right. The current occasion to address this matter was the perception of a resurgence of traditional religion, especially Islam.
