Abstract

Considered an attack on the very foundation of the social order and public morality, blasphemy has been and is still repressed as such. Recently, however, certain international events and identity claims have raised new questions about the forms, the nature and the lawfulness of speeches and images showing disrespect for religions, even in the satirical mode. By examining the contemporary manifestations of what is considered outrageous by religions, but also by considering the history and anthropology of the "unholy word" and its reception, the studies collected in this book provide a better understanding of how this category of religious and legal discourse has been constructed over time, with the aim of suppressing certain forms of protest against established religions and their symbols. For the repression of blasphemy shows the complexity of its social and judicial management, at the heart of the tension between freedom of conscience ("slanderer" and "defamation"), freedom of expression and censorship.

Abstract

The present volume`s focus lies on the formation of a multifaceted discourse on Christian martyrdom in Late Antiquity. While martyrdom accounts remain a central means of defining Christian identity, new literary genres emerge, e.g., the Lives of Saints (Athanasius on Antony), sermons (the Cappadocians), hymns (Prudentius). Authors like Eusebius of Caesarea and Augustine employ martyrological language and motifs in their writings, while beyond the borders of the Roman Empire, new martyrs` narratives can be found. The volume thus enlarges and specifies our knowledge of this important Christian discourse.

Abstract

Autor v německy psané studii klade otázku, co se odehrálo v kruhu Ježíšových přívrženců po Ježíšově ukřižování. Víme, že učedníci Ježíše po jeho zatčení opustili, s největší pravděpodobností odešli zpět do Galileje. Je obecně známou skutečností, že v Jeruzalémě vznikl záhy okruh Ježíšových přívrženců, v němž získal přední postavení Ježíšův rodný bratr Jakub. K tomuto kruhu se posléze připojila z Galileje se navrátivší skupina apokalyptického radikalismu nejbližších Ježíšových učedníků. Odlišného zaměření byla v Jeruzalémě skupina kolem Štěpána. Samostatnou kapitolu tvoří Pavlovo pochopení Ježíšova kříže a vzkříšení, zachycené v Pavlově formuli víry, I. Korintským 15,1-3. Mezi Jakubem a Pavlem došlo posléze k tvrdému sporu o otázku, zda křesťané nežidovského původu jsou povinni dodržovat ustanovení židovského zákona. Kardinální otázka ovšem zní, co se odehrálo v prvních dnech, týdnech, bezprostředně po Ježíšově ukřižování? Autor vyslovuje argumentovanou hypotézu, že zvolání „maranata“ v galilejském kruhu apokalyptických radikálů z Ježíšova nejbližšího okruhu, bylo onou první jiskrou, která dala do pohybu proces vznikání křesťanské víry. Tuto hypotézu argumentuje řadou odkazů, že zvolání bylo známo již v Kumránu, odkud je doloženo v Didaché. To znamená, že nikoli víra ve vzkříšení dala vzniknout očekávání Ježíšova příchodu, návratu, parusie, nýbrž vizionářské očekávání parusie, provázené zvoláním maranata, dalo vzniknout víře ve vzkříšení. V této nejstarší vrstvě nelze ještě označit očekávání parusie jako očekávání druhého Kristova příchodu. Tam očekávání posouvá až Pavel, pro kterého již Ježíšův kříž byl vykupitelským dějstvím poslaného božího Syna. Mottem Fundovy knihy Ježíš a mýtus o Kristu (Praha, Karolinum 2007, 366 stran) je Popperova věta, že i velmi smělé hypotézy, které se nepotvrdily, poponášejí dopředu naše poznání.

Abstract

Much nuance and variability have been lost in the process of the reductivist analysis of Islam post 9/11 and, as this study amply demonstrates, we are all the poorer as a result. This exhaustive examination of the rise and spread of the Tablighi Jama't, arguably the world's largest Islamic missionary movement, locates it in the larger perspective of global Islam and developments in the Muslim societies. Combining an overview of the history and current socio-political perception of the Tablighi Jama'at with a more analytical and philosophical approach to fundamental questions of identity, subject-positioning and representation, the author creates a comprehensive resource of interest to all scholars and students of Islam. Drawing on exhaustive research and records of conversion narratives of the new members of Tablighi Jama'at, cited here at length, the author creates a unique perspective on this complex phenomenon from both an internal and external viewpoints. Ahmad-Noor locates the spiritual framework of the movement in the context of its perception in the eyes of the political and religious authorities of the countries where it has a following, as well as the Western 'securocrat' approach.

Abstract

La civilisation japonaise s’est très tôt affirmée dans un rapport de « concurrence linguistique » avec le chinois, tant dans la sphère religieuse que littéraire et intellectuelle. Cette symbiose culturelle articulée sur le façonnage de la langue, que Jean-Noël Robert propose d’appeler hiéroglossie, est la source ultime du discours que prononça Yasunari Kawabata à la réception du prix Nobel de littérature en 1968 : en puisant ses sources dans la poésie bouddhique japonaise, il s’inscrit dans l...

Abstract

Since the 1970s the feminization thesis has become a powerful trope in the rewriting of the social history of Christendom. However, this ‘thesis' has triggered some vehement debates, given that men have continued to dominate the churches, which have reacted to the association of religion and femininity by explicitly focusing their appeal to men. The authors critically reflect upon the use of concepts like feminization and masculinization in relation to Christianity. By presenting case studies that adopt different gendered approaches regarding Christian, mainly Catholic discourses and practices, they capture multiple ‘feminizations' and ‘masculinizations' in Europe during the 19th and 20th centuries. In particular, it becomes clear that the idea that Christianity took on ‘charicteristically feminine' values and practices cannot withstand the conclusion that what is considered ‘manly' or ‘feminine' depends on time, place, and context, and on the reasons why gendered metaphors are used.

Abstract

How religious practices are reproduced has become a major theoretical issue. This work examines data on Nuaulu ritual performances collected over a 30 year period, comparing different categories of event in terms of frequency and periodicity. It seeks to identify the influencing factors and the consequences for continuity. Such an approach enables a focus on related issues: variation in performance, how rituals change in relation to material and social conditions, the connections between different ritual types, the way these interact as cycles, and the extent to which fidelity of transmission is underpinned by a common model or repertoire of elements. This monograph brings to completion a long-term study of the religious behaviour of the Nuaulu, a people of the island of Seram in the Indonesian province of Maluku. Ethnographically, it is important for several reasons: the Nuaulu are one of the few animist societies remaining on Seram; the data emphasize patterns of practices in a part of Indonesia where studies have hitherto been more concerned with meaning and symbolic classification; and because Nuaulu live in an area where recent political tension has been between Christians and Muslims. Nuaulu are, paradoxically, both caught between these two groups, and apart from them. Roy Ellen is Professor of Anthropology and Human Ecology at the University of Kent, a Fellow of The British Academy, and was president of the Royal Anthropological Institute between 2007 and 2011. He was trained at the London School of Economics and at the University of Leiden. Among his other books are The cultural relations of classification (on Nuaulu animal categories) and On the edge of the Banda zone (on trade in east Seram).
