Abstract

Este texto es un esfuerzo de actualizar el judaísmo secular y humanista, que en los tiempos modernos orientó a los mayores pensadores, científicos, artistas y activistas judíos, de Spinoza a Hanna Arendt, de Freud a Einstein, de Gershwin a Chagall, de Kafka a Roth, de Theodor Hertzl a Emma Goldman, de Isaac Deutscher a Amos Oz, así como a la gran mayoría de sus premios Nobel. Judíos, que no invocaban libros sagrados o mandamientos divinos para afirmar una identidad judaica, que se nutrieron de la historia y de la cultura judía, de sus dramas psíquicos y existenciales, de lazos particulares de solidaridad cuando los judíos son perseguidos, como de revuelta cuando los judíos actúan sin sensibilidad frente al sufrimiento de los otros.

Abstract

Quels que soient le lieu ou la civilisation que l’on explore, des relations profondes entre religion et art se décèlent. L’art traduit volontiers les aspects des fonctions religieuses, soit dans le cadre organisé d’un rituel, soit plus spontanément, dans l’expression de la foi personnelle ou collective. Les religions font appel aux artistes pour rendre apparent et intelligible l’invisible mais se heurtent souvent à eux en leur imposant des formes. Mais si bien des civilisations ont fait l’objet d’études fouillées sur la manière dont elles articulaient l’art et la religion, force est de constater que très peu de chercheurs se sont attelés à une vue transversale de ces notions. Cet ouvrage s’inscrit dès lors dans une perspective comparative ayant pour but de souligner les diachronies et les spécificités religieuses.

Abstract

Jacob’s Ladder discusses the reflection of kabbalistic allegory in Russian literature and provides a detailed analysis of the evolution of the perception of Kabbalah in Russian consciousness. Aptekman investigates the questions of when, how, and why Kabbalah has been used in Russian literary texts from Pre-Romanticism to Modernism and what particular role it played in the larger context of the Russian literary tradition. The correct understanding of this liaison helps the reader clarify many enigmatic images in Russian literary works of the last two centuries and to understand the roots of a particular cultural falsification that played an important role in the anti-Semitic mythology of the twentieth century.

Abstract

Annie Ernaux a déclaré écrire à partir de son vide, que la perte est le « noyau dur » de tous ses livres, le fil qui les relie entre eux. Cet ouvrage propose une lecture attentive de l’œuvre ernalienne (romans, récits de vie, journaux concertés, extraits de journal intime, essai, lettre, etc.) et s’articule autour de trois aspects principaux : la perte, les traces et la religion. Quatre pertes sont identifiées, émergeant à diverses époques et de différentes manières dans l’œuvre : les amants ...

Abstract

Why are Khanty shamans still active? What are the folklore collectives of Komi? Why are the rituals of Udmurts performed at cultural festivals? In their insightful ethnographic study Anna-Leena Siikala and Oleg Ulyashev attempt to answer such questions by analysing the recreation of religious traditions, myths, and songs in public and private performances. Their work is based on long term fieldwork undertaken during the 1990s and 2000s in three different places, the Northern Ob region in North West Siberia and in the Komi and Udmurt Republics. It sheds light on how different traditions are favoured and transformed in multicultural Russia today. Siikala and Ulyashev examine rituals, songs, and festivals that emphasize specificity and create feelings of belonging between members of families, kin groups, villages, ethnic groups, and nations, and interpret them from a perspective of area, state, and cultural policies. A closer look at post-Soviet Khanty, Komi and Udmurts shows that opportunities to perform ethnic culture vary significantly among Russian minorities with different histories and administrative organisation. Within this variation the dialogue between local and administrative needs is decisive.

Abstract

The Balkans and the Near East share millennia of a shared history, which stretches from sedentarization in early history to the 20th century. In the Neolithic period, in Mesopotamia and in the Balkans basic techniques and skills were developed on which Europe and the Islamic world could be based later on. Thus, for example, in the centres of "Ancient Europe" - in the middle basin of the Danube River - already in the 5th millennium people experimented with early script systems, long before the first cuneiform texts in Mesopotamia and the hieroglyph texts in ancient Egypt became in use. &#xD;The "division of labour" between the various scholarly disciplines in the fields of Balkan studies and Near (Middle) East studies resulted in the separation of a shared history into a Southeast European or Balkan history on the one hand and a history of the Near (Middle) East on the other hand. It is therefore the aim of the monograph to unite the separated histories to a joint one. Since this cannot be done by the simple operation of adding up two histories, the volume opens new perspectives. &#xD;A comparable historiographical piece of work does not yet exist. The geographical space covered by the text extends between Bosnia in the west, the Iraq in the east and the Arabic Peninsula and Egypt in the south. The composition of the material is based on regional and temporal comparison. Specifically, temporal comparison constitutes a great challenge, because approximately 10,000 years are covered. &#xD;The book is organized by topics and comprises 17 chapters, 455 manuscript pages and approximately 120 graphs and photographs. Conceptualized as an introductory text, the book may also interest a wider public. The style of writing is generally intelligible and addresses for instance the burning contemporary tensions between Islam and Europe. In addition, topics such as history of religion, historical-anthropological, economic, cultural as well as questions of gender relations are addressed on a principal basis. &#xD;&#xD;

Abstract

Inspired by a critical reconsideration of current monolithic approaches to the study of Greek religion, this book argues that ancient Greeks displayed a disquieting capacity to validate two (or more) dissonant, if not contradictory, representations of the divine world in a complementary rather than mutually exclusive manner. From this perspective the six chapters explore problems inherent in: order vs. variety/chaos in polytheism, arbitrariness vs. justice in theodicy, the peaceful co-existence of mono- and polytheistic theologies, human traits in divine imagery, divine omnipotence vs. limitation of power, and ruler cult. Based on an intimate knowledge of ancient realia and literary testimonia the book stands out for its extensive application of relevant perceptions drawn from cultural anthropology, theology, cognitive science, psychology, and linguistics.
