Im Jahre 2009 jahrte sich der 500. Geburtstag Johannes Calvins. Bei aller eingehenden theologischen Forschung zu Calvins Wirken ruckte erst in jungerer Zeit das Thema 'Philosophie in der reformierten Tradition' in den Fokus der Forschung. Die Beitrage dieses Sammelbandes fuhren diese noch jungen Ansatze fort und vertiefen die Frage, ob und in welcher Hinsicht das Reformiertentum die Tradition der Philosophie rezipiert und transformiert hat. Diese Frage nach der Philosophie wird in ihren unterschiedlichsten Disziplinen verfolgt wie der praktischen Philosophie, der Logik und Dialektik, der Anthropologie, Naturphilosophie und der Metaphysik. Dabei schliessen die Untersuchungen neben dem europaischen Calvinismus ausdrucklich auch die andere reformierte Richtung im Anschluss an Huldrich Zwingli ein und erfassen so die reformierten Kirchen in ihrer ganzen Breite.

On Soul and Earth offers an original perspective on the relationship between the environment and the human psyche. Physical spaces contribute to the building of identity through personal experience and memory. Places evoke emotions and carry their own special meanings. Elena Liotta and her contributors also explore the neglected topics of migration and travel. The author has extensive clinical experience of working with patients from a wide variety of national and cultural backgrounds. Globalization is present in the clinical office as well as in the wider world and the transformations currently being wrought in the areas of cultural and national identity also impact on clinical work. This book will be of interest to Jungian analysts as well as psychotherapists and mental health professionals, especially those who are addressing transcultural and multicultural issues including voluntary or enforced migration. It will also appeal to urban planners, architects and those interested in environmental issues.

The Past, Present and Future of Theology of Interreligious Dialogue brings together several of the most widely regarded specialists who have contributed to theological reflection on religious diversity and interreligious encounter. The chapters are united by the consistent theme of the obligation to engage with the challenges that emerge from the tension between the doctrinal tradition(s) of Christianity and the need to reconsider them in light of and in response to the fact of religious otherness. As a whole, these reflections are motivated by the desire to bring together a significant selection of different theological approaches that have been developed and appropriated in order to engage with religious difference in the past and present, as well as to suggest possibilities for the future. This confluence of perspectives reveals the complexity of theological reflection on religious diversity, and gives some indication of future challenges that must be acknowledged, and perhaps successfully met, in the ongoing attempt to address a universal reality in light of traditional doctrinal particularities and cultural concerns.

From the horrors of ethnic cleansing in Bosnia to debates over multiculturalism, ethnicity has, once again, become a global preoccupation. But what exactly do we mean when we speak of ethnicity? And when and how did ethnicity become such an important area of cultural expression and identification that people are ready to die and to kill for it? Gathering the work of some of our most original thinkers, Theories of Ethnicity provides, in one convenient volume, the most probing and frequently cited considerations of such topics as the melting pot and pluralism, race and race problems, migration and marginality, assimilation and transnationalism, intermarriage, kinship and religion, boundary-construction and maintenance, and the important role of power relations for ethnicity. Contributors include such intellects as Max Weber, Carl Gustav Jung, Margaret Mead, Georg Simmel, Erik Erikson, Karl Mannheim, Fredrik Barth, and Herbert Gans. Theories of Ethnicity grounds much current sociological, cultural, and political research on ethnicity in a theoretical foundation that has heretofore been lacking, providing an important historical base for ongoing and future work on this timely subject.

The movement of Scandinavian Creation Theology was shaped by its three founding figures: the philosopher K.E Løgstrup, and the systematic theologians Regin Prenter, and Gustaf Wingren. In their appeal to Martin Luther, all three of them were deeply inspired by the Danish theologian N.F.S. Grundtvig (1783-1872), seing him as a creative mediator between Luther and contemporary Christianity. The program of Scandinavian creation theology is not a naive call for an additive theology, as if to merely say: “we need more creation.” Nor does it represent a creation theology linked to a traditional theology of the orders of creation. Rather, Scandinavian Creation Theology claims that a theological interpretation of the shared conditions of humanity is to be considered a prerequisite for any interpretation of the Christian faith in the present religious situation. This volume aims to reformulate the potentials of Scandinavian creation theology for the 21st century, arguing that Scandinavian creation theology adds significantly to the body of theological reflection on the future shape of Reformation theology. The reader will find fresh interpretations of the sources, critical elaborations, and sustained attempts to reconfigure Reformation theology for a post-secular age.

The incunabulum Peregrinatio in terram sanctam by Bernhard von Breydenbach, which appeared in 1486, is the first printed and illustrated travelogue. It provides one of the most important sources for studying medieval contact between religions on the threshold of the Modern Age. Besides sketches in the form of diary entries, theological reflections and precise observations of countries and peoples, the text also contains an agitational polemic on Islam, which bears witness to the horror felt in Christendom at the Turkish conquest of Constantinople. The present edition is the first to present the complete Early New High German text with a translation.

These papers investigate the revival of painting and mosaic in Rome in the second half of the 13th century and the contribution of Rome to the birth of modern painting. Their concern is with the interrelationships between pictures and their social, political and religious context. In this way, the early work of Giotto and the development of the Italian altarpiece are reconsidered, with particular attention being paid to questions of structure, setting and patronage. The work of Simone Martini for the Angevin Court at Naples and the promotion of the cult of new saints by visual means is examined within the context of the European politics of canonisation. Finally, Professor Gardner considers the artistic role of the Mendicant orders, in particular the Franciscans and the Dominicans, and their self-promotion by visual images.Ces essais examinent la renaissance de la peinture et de la mosaïque à Rome durant la seconde moitié du 13e siècle, ainsi que la contribution de Rome à l'avènement de la peinture moderne. Leur intérêt se porte sur les rapports étroits existant entre les tableaux et leur contexte social, politique et religieux. C'est ainsi que les premières oeuvres de Giotto et le développement du retable sont repris en considération, avec une attention plus particulière envers les questions de structure, de cadre et de mécénat. L'oeuvre de Simone Martini à la cour angevine de Naples et la promotion du culte des nouveaux saints, au travers de moyens visuels, sont étudiés au sein du contexte de la politique de canonisation européenne. Pour finir, le professeur Gardner considère le rôle des ordres mendiants, en particulier ceux des Franciscains et des Dominicains, et leur façon de se promouvoir à l'aide d'images visuelles.
