Abstract

En la presente miscelánea se recogen estudios redactados por el autor a lo largo de más de cincuenta años de dedicación al esclarecimiento del texto hebreo-bíblico desde la perspectiva contextual cananeo-ugarítica. Organizados en tres grupos temáticos, los artículos tratan en líneas generales sobre cuestiones relacionadas con la interculturalidad sociorreligiosa, con la intertextualidad ugarítico-hebrea y con aspectos estilísticos y literarios de la Biblia hebrea. Por las reflexiones en torno a temas tan vigentes como los problemas de la traducción o el impacto del descubrimiento del Oriente antiguo en la cultura occidental, el interés de esta obra va más allá de los círculos de especialistas a quienes en principio va dirigida.

Abstract

In his controversial poem “I Sing the Body Electric”, Walt Whitman glorified the human body in all its forms. The world according to Whitman is physical and sensual. Bodies are our fundamental way of being – being in the here and now, being in time and space. Bodies we have and bodies we are are as much sensed, felt, experienced, seen, or heard as they are material objects.2 As bodies, we are in space, and through our bodies, their processes, their practices, their skills, we leave traces in space and time and extend ourselves in space. Bodies that extend and reach out and communicate through voice, as well as how voice materialises the immaterial, was the topic of a colloquium, “I Sing the Body Electric”, held at the University of Hull, United Kingdom, in 2014, which in turn inspired the following special issue of the Journal for Religion, Film and Media (JRFM). Following on from the colloquium’s inspiration, this JRFM issue is dedicated to the interrelation between religion, body, technology, and voice and its analysis from an interdisciplinary perspective using approaches from musicology, philosophy, and religious studies.

Abstract

The textual tradition of the Bible has inspired many of the most significant developments, principles and methodologies in editorial practice, from the parallel texts and critical symbols of Origen’s Hexapla in the early third century to Lachmann’s nineteeth-century stemmatics. It is therefore unsurprising that, in this digital age, the New Testament continues to be at the forefront of new and exciting initiatives. The present chapter describes the workflow and tools developed for the Editio Critica Maior of the Greek New Testament, in particular those associated with the Workspace for Collaborative Editing, and how these have shaped the task of editing both the text and documents of the New Testament and offer new models of publication thanks to the capacity of electronic media and the Internet.

Abstract

Adam Neuser raconte l'histoire vraie d'un pasteur protestant émigré à Istanbul et converti à l'islam à la fin du xvie siècle. L'art d'écrire lessingien, son jeu avec l'érudition remplissent cependant le récit de leurres. On comprend vite que la conversion d'Adam Neuser n'est pas l'essentiel, pas plus que l'affinité supposée de l'islam avec le déisme. Adam Neuser constitue l'une des réflexions les plus rigoureuses des Lumières allemandes sur leur propre histoire, celle d'une société traversée par la distinction confessionnelle. À travers son interrogation sur l'appartenance religieuse et la proclamation des croyances, le texte ouvre des voies pour penser la religion naturelle aujourd'hui.

Abstract

Jewish educational projects and programs are thriving, attracting philanthropic support for exciting and creative approaches in every sector and setting. But underneath that energy, we are not as clear as we ought to be about desired outcomes, the kinds of learning needed to achieve these, and how those kinds of learning actually occur. This volume is the first of its kind to bring together scholars from inside Jewish education and from the learning sciences. It offers a set of critical perspectives on learning, sometimes borrowing models from other domains (such as science) and sometimes examining specific domains within Jewish education (such as havruta learning or the learning of Jewish history). Collectively, these contributions help to advance a smarter, sharper conversation about Jewish learning that matters.

Abstract

This book provides the first overview of the history and development of Islam in Afghanistan. Written by leading international experts, chapters cover every era from the conversion of Afghanistan through the medieval period to the present day. Based on primary sources in Arabic, Persian, Pashto, Uzbek, and Urdu, its depth of coverage is unrivalled in providing a developmental picture of Afghanistan’s Islam, including such issues as the rise of Sufism, women’s religiosity, state religious policies, and transnational Islamism. Looking beyond the unifying rhetoric of theology, the book reveals the disparate and contested forms of Afghanistan’s Islam.

Abstract

Analizar la filosofía política de Agustín es un debate actual, particularmente su reflexión sobre la iglesia y el estado. Esta obra recopila una serie de contribuciones que examinan las perspectivas teóricas de Agustín a este respecto. Agustín comprendió sus responsabilidades como líder de la teología y de la iglesia: la veracidad de la fe y la unidad de la iglesia no podían comprometerse. Nunca dudó en apelar a las actividades civiles con el fin de lograr su objetivo. De hecho, se aventuró a expandir la autoridad civil, al emperador, contra una autoridad eclesiástica como la del papa Zósimo. Esta apelación al brazo secular del poder estuvo influenciada, de un lado, por la preocupación de Agustín sobre la preservación del orden y la paz y, de otro, por su creencia del derecho a la verdad; aunque esta aspiración de Agustín no fue del todo absoluta. Rechazó la idea de que los humanos se debían convertir a la fuerza, contra su voluntad. También condenó cualquier cosa que comprometiera la integridad física de los seres humanos. En resumen, Agustín reconoció el valor del sistema político, lo cual sirvió para salvaguardar los buenos fines de la vida terrenal: la paz y la justicia. No obstante, Agustín creía que la paz y la justicia terrenal eran reflejos de la paz y la justicia celestial, pues es esto último la base del orden y la estabilidad en la tierra.
