Abstract

Este livro propõe-se a estudar o Espiritismo como um sistema religioso, um sistema de crenças e práticas que se inclui no quadro maior de religiões mediúnicas. Com base na seleção de grupos específicos, seu objetivo central é a apreensão e discussão das categorias e representações que constituem essa experiência religiosa e dos valores culturais a ela relacionados. Nessa perspectiva a percepção da construção da noção de pessoa no Espiritismo se apresenta como um fio condutor e como uma pista particularmente esclarecedora da experiência do transe e da mediunidade nessa religião.

Abstract

Este livro procura contribuir para o conhecimento de um setor da sociedade que não se enquadra nos temas tradicionais, na medida em que trata de um grupo cuja identidade cultural foge dos padrões e preocupações típicas do que foi a agenda dominante das Ciências Sociais no Brasil até bem pouco tempo. Apesar de os judeus terem um papel importante na construção de movimentos políticos e ideológicos, na vida econômica e científica do Brasil, são pouquíssimos os trabalhos que procuraram compreender os processos socioculturais de formação e transformação da comunidade judaica no Brasil.

Abstract

Vivir en la periferia del sistema no siempre representó una desventaja. El judaísmo de Europa central a fines del siglo XIX e inicios del XX fue uno de los polos culturales más creativos de los tiempos modernos. El problema del judaísmo en América Latina reside en que es doblemente pe-riférico, además de ser de otra época. Al estar localizado en países capitalistas "emergentes", es decir, alejados de la cola pero, todavía, lejos de la cabeza y con comunidades de baja densidad demográfica y cultural y en un ambiente relativamente poco hostil - lo que disminuye las fuerzas centrífugas -, enfrenta el desafío de individualizarse en un universo globalizado en donde los espacios locales son permanentemente colonizados por el mundo exterior.

Abstract

Acompanhando criticamente a trajetória da Igreja Popular, muitos estudos têm sido dedicados à análise do desempenho político deste setor da Igreja Católica no Brasil dos anos recentes. A contribuição dos autores reunidos neste número dos Cadernos do ISER não se baseia em análises de documentos e declarações - opções que se tem mostrado, sem dúvida, muito produtiva - mas na reflexão sobre um conjunto de práticas, complementação percebida cada vez mais claramente, como indispensável neste campo de discussões.

Abstract

Toute religion tente d’imprimer sa présence et ses signes dans l’espace public. Une statue, un sanctuaire, une procession, l’appel des cloches ou du muezzin, même des vêtements spécifiques sont autant de moyens classiques d’imposer le sacré dans l’espace public. L’ouvrage montre aussi que les religions concurrentes se disputent l’espace et que le triomphe de l’une d’entre elles implique le plus souvent l’effacement des signes des autres confessions.

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

This work is a series of sermons produced by Emeritus Professor Hans Mol, and based on Biblical texts, the Commentaries of John Calvin on these texts, and on Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion. Mol is Australia’s pre-eminent scholar in the sociology of religion, particularly in Australia. His 1971 volume, Religion in Australia, was the first attempt at statistical analysis of religion in Australia, which was also internationally significant. Parallel to Mol’s interest in the sociology of religion has been his interest in Calvin. Indeed the theological basis of his life has been as a Calvinist. Here in this volume he brings both of these interests together. His sermons, preached over the years in Canberra, seek to apply the teachings of Calvin to a world-view in which the scientific study of religion, and indeed the wider study of sociology, are of central significance. In these sermons, he succeeds considerably in this. The volume is a substantial contribution to scholarship, in that the combination of these two factors has only rarely been attempted. Thus, the volume has originality and will have enduring value. It is especially appropriate that it should be published at this time, in preparation for the 500th Anniversary of Calvin’s birth (1509–2009).

Abstract

El contenido de este libro se inscribe en un proyecto de investigación más amplio sobre los llamados «movimientos religiosos carismáticos y extáticos». En primer lugar se presenta el arraigo y desarrollo de la tradición protestante en América Latina y particularmente en México, examinando su diversidad y sus variantes internas en el contexto de los procesos de cambio religioso vividos por este país en las últimas décadas. Posteriormente, se presentan los principios teológicos y de experiencia espiritual del pentecostalismo. En su parte final, el libro propone una síntesis comparativa integrando estos tres ejes principales, con el objetivo de avanzar en la comprensión e interpretación de los rasgos estructurales y funcionales que parecen compartir los movimientos de perfil carismático y extático. La reflexión teórica reincide tanto en la dimensión personal y subjetiva de los fieles como en la comunitaria e institucional, ambas estrechamente vinculadas al profundizar en las dinámicas internas de estos movimientos religiosos.

Abstract

Blasphemy and other forms of blatant disrespect to religious beliefs have the capacity to create significant civil and even international unrest. Consequently, the sacrosanctity of religious dogmas and beliefs, stringent laws of repression and codes of moral and ethical propriety have compelled artists to live and create with occupational hazards like uncertain audience response, self-censorship and accusations of deliberate misinterpretation of cultural production looming over their heads. Yet, in recent years, issues surrounding the rights of minority cultures to recognition and respect have raised new questions about the contemporariness of the construct of blasphemy and sacrilege. Controversies over the aesthetic representation of the sacred, the exhibition of the sacred as art, and the public display of sacrilegious or blasphemous works have given rise to heated debates and have invited us to reflect on binaries like artistic and religious sensibilities, tolerance and philistinism, the sacred and the profane, deification and vilification. Endeavouring to move beyond ‘simplistic’ points about the rights to freedom of expression and sacrosanctity, this collection explores how differences between conceptions of the sacred can be negotiated. It recognises that blasphemy may be justified as a form of political criticism, as well as a sincere expression of spirituality. But it also recognises that within a pluralistic society, blasphemy in the arts can do an enormous amount of harm, as it may also impair relations within and between societies.&#xD;&#xD;This collection evolved out a two-day conference called ‘Negotiating the Sacred: Blasphemy and Sacrilege in the Arts’ held at the Centre for Cross Cultural Research at The Australian National University in November 2005. This is the second volume in a series of five conferences and edited collections on the theme ‘Negotiating the Sacred’. The first conference, ‘Negotiating the Sacred: Blasphemy and Sacrilege in a Multicultural Society’ was held at The Australian National University’s Centre for Cross-Cultural Research in 2004, and published as an edited collection by ANU E Press in 2006. Other conferences in the series have included Religion, Medicine and the Body (ANU, 2006), Tolerance, Education and the Curriculum (ANU, 2007), and Governing the Family (Monash University, 2008). Together, the series represents a major contribution to ongoing debates on the political demands arising from religious pluralism in multicultural societies.

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.
