Abstract

Die bei Plantin-Moretus um 1600 in Antwerpen gedruckten, von Jan David SJ verfassten und durch Theodoor Galle aufwendig illustrierten Andachtsbücher werden erstmals vollständig und systematisch, unter Berücksichtigung der Texte und zugehöriger Bilder, vorgestellt und untersucht. Deren komplexe Kupfersticherfi ndungen sind nicht - wie bislang angenommen - Emblemvarianten, sondern stellen ein gänzlich anders funktionierendes System der Text- und Bild-Synthese dar. Der jeweiligen Andachts-, Erbauungs- oder Lehrfunktion entsprechend verbildlichen die Kupferstiche Allegorisierungen moralischer und religiöser Didaxe, bildinterne Lettern und beigefügte Erläuterungen erschließen Inhalte und stellen den Bezug zu den verbildlichten Texten her. Analyse der unterschiedlichen Text-Bild-Verschränkungen in den vier Büchern, Herleitung der Buchstabenverweissysteme, buchgeschichtliche Einordnung, Entstehungsumstände, Konzeptionsgeschichte, funktionale Bestimmungen und Rezeptionen der Bücher und Bilder werden umfassend geklärt. Neben Veridicus Christianus (1601), Occasio Arrepta Neglecta (1605), Paradisus Sponsi et Sponsae (1607) und Duodecim Specula (1610) wurde auch das umfangreiche und viel rezipierte, von Boetius a Bolswert illustrierte Via Vitae Aeternae (1620) des Antoine Sucquet SJ ausführlich behandelt.

Abstract

The spread of Catholicism among the local Christian population in the
Syro-Palestinian region has attracted the attention of many scholars. Previous
research has described how missionaries’ work was facilitated by the
patronage of local notables, by the establishment of personal ties with locals,
and more generally by a wide range of daily interactions, such as providing
medical assistance. 1 In this framework, academic attention has mostly
focused on the cities, consistent with the fact that missions were far more
numerous in urban areas. An important exception is a pioneering work by
Bernard Heyberger. This early study reconstructs how, departing from their
houses in cities such as Sayda and Tripoli, Jesuits and Capuchins visited
rural villages in Galilee and Lebanon. Inspired by the model of rural missions
developed in Europe during the Catholic Reformation, their activities
hinged on confession and preaching. In line with the regional framework,
missionaries also carefully built ties with locals and offered their medical
competencies, which greatly helped their cause. 2 Although the importance
of interactions with the locals in the spread of Catholicism in the Middle
East has been widely acknowledged, many questions about the nature of
these interactions still remain unanswered: How did the administrative and
economic system that characterized rural and semi-rural spaces influence
missionaries’ interactions with the surrounding areas? What was the relationship
between missionaries’ entanglement with local society and their
evangelizing activities? And, finally, to what extent did these interactions
turn the missionaries into “localized” protagonists?

Abstract

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), an Italian Dominican friar and Catholic priest, is one of the most influential theologians in the Christian tradition. Scholarship on Aquinas is flourishing, with studies of natural law theory, action theory, the morality of the passions, feminism, political theory, etc. Yet despite the contemporary renewal of virtue ethics, to date no full-length treatment of Aquinas' theory of virtue exists. Aquinas on Virtues offers a new and comprehensive interpretation of how Aquinas uses the four causes--formal, material, final, and efficient--to understand virtue in general, and how these causes underlie his treatment of specific virtues that make up the bulk of his ethics. In the final part of the book Austin applies the causal approach to four contested issues in contemporary virtue theory: practical wisdom; virtue and the passions; the teleology (or ultimate end) of virtue; and infused moral virtues, exploring the relation between grace and virtue.

Abstract

The articles in this volume, all by leading scholars, examine the topic of rebirth, or reincarnation, from a wide range of perspectives. The main focus of most of the articles is the idea of rebirth as found in Hindu texts and traditions. There are also articles exploring Christian responses to the idea of rebirth as well as expressions of the idea of rebirth in the Western world (such as in the thought of poet William Butler Yeats and in an American context). There are also philosophical and theological articles arguing both for and against the idea of rebirth, as well as articles which take a more historical or literary approach to this topic. The shared thread unifying all of these articles is the idea that rebirth is an important idea that holds great fascination for many. While the primary focus is on Hindu and Christian expressions of or responses to this idea, there are also articles that engage with scientific thinking on this topic, and one which engages with Buddhism as well. In short, this volume is an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural, and cross-traditional exploration of the topic of reincarnation that should appeal to a wide array of readers.

Abstract

Aux yeux des Philippins, Mindanao est un continent noir, peuplé de musulmans qui incarnent la figure de l’autre pour ne pas dire du mal. Cette représentation n’a pas beaucoup changé depuis la colonisation. Les « événements » couverts par les médias depuis la guerre - appelons les choses par leur nom - sous Marcos ont renforcé la perception des musulmans comme des fauteurs de troubles. À bien des égards, le conflit autonomiste, séparatiste, ressemble à la guerre civile du Liban caricaturée par les journalistes occidentaux comme un combat manichéen entre les bons chrétiens et les méchants musulmans. Pour se départir de cette impression, François-Xavier Bonnet a reconsidéré les préjugés qui ont formé le prêt-à-penser des observateurs extérieurs. Son travail fait date car aucun chercheur avant lui n’avait effectué une coupe géologique du conflit en examinant la stratification des tensions, comme autant de couches sédimentaires empilées, altérées par les lignes de faille provoquées par la guerre. Il fallait un géographe de formation pour combiner les différentes échelles d’analyse, souvent enchevêtrées. Il fallait un géopolitologue de conviction pour ne pas accabler une communauté et mettre en lumière la complexité des dynamiques politiques à l’œuvre sur le territoire. La géographie/géo­politique française invite aussi à réfléchir sur l’histoire. Or, la narration du conflit a été négligée au profit d’une étude originale des causes en amont - qui n’existait ni aux États-Unis ni aux Philippines - et des conséquences (avec les règlements de paix) en aval. Il a fallu plusieurs années d’enquête de terrain pour jeter une lumière nouvelle sur cette question.

Abstract

The research studies included in this Special Issue highlight the fundamental contribution of the knowledge of environmental history to conscious and efficient environment conservation and management. The long-term perspective of the dynamics that govern the human–climate ecosystem is becoming one of the main focuses of interest in biological and earth system sciences. Multidisciplinary bio-geo-archaeo investigations into the underlying processes of human impact on the landscape are crucial to envisage possible future scenarios of biosphere responses to global warming and biodiversity losses. This Special Issue seeks to engage an interdisciplinary dialog on the dynamic interactions between nature and society, focusing on long-term environmental data as an essential tool for better-informed landscape management decisions to achieve an equilibrium between conservation and sustainable resource exploitation.

Abstract

Video game studies are a relative young but flourishing academic discipline. But within game studies, however, the perspective of religion and spirituality is rather neglected, both by game scholars and religion scholars. While religion can take different shapes in digital games, ranging from material and referential to reflexive and ritual, it is not necessarily true that game developers depict their in-game religions in a positive, confirming way, but ever so often games approach the topic critically and disavowingly. The religion criticisms found in video games can be categorized as follows: religion as (1) fraud, aimed to manipulate the uneducated, as (2) blind obedience towards an invisible but ultimately non-existing deity/ies, as (3) violence against those who do not share the same set of religious rules, as (4) madness, a deranged alternative for logical reasoning, and as (5) suppression in the hands of the powerful elite to dominate and subdue the masses into submission and obedience. The critical depictions of religion in video games by their developers is the focus of this special issue.

Abstract

Throughout the second half of the twentieth century, sacramental theology has evolved as a discipline advancing comprehensive theories of sacraments and sacramentality as integral to the Christian faith while also studying the history and theology of the particular rites. Now, in the twenty-first century, the need for attention to the actual performance and specific social settings of sacramental worship has become well established. This makes the work of sacramental theology necessarily engaged with multiple, cross-disciplinary theories attentive to particular contexts, whether local, national, or global. Still, the divine human encounter at the heart of Christian symbol and ritual likewise beckons to philosophical–theological reflection. The essays in this volume begin with profound philosophical perspectives on the personal and communal sacramental experience, expanding from traditional cosmology to evolutionary and chaos theories of our planetary existence, continuing with shifts, especially among youth, to interreligious and non-institutional perspectives, consideration of change in popular notions of guilt, and social–ethical issues in relation to liturgical theology and practice, so as finally to return to fundamental theological reflection on human sacramentality and divine revelation.
