White Eagle, Black Madonna: One Thousand Years Of The Polish Catholic Tradition [Table Of Contents], Robert E. Alvis 2016 Saint Meinrad School of Theology

White Eagle, Black Madonna: One Thousand Years Of The Polish Catholic Tradition [Table Of Contents], Robert E. Alvis

Religion

“Perhaps more than any other nation, Poland has been influenced throughout its history by its relationship to the Roman Catholic Church. For more than a millennium, Poles have defined themselves in great part as members of this church. White Eagle, Black Madonna is the first work in English to examine this important religious–national nexus from its beginnings to the present day. Profoundly researched and written in an engaging manner, this book deserves a broad readership.” —Theodore Weeks, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale


Imagine No Religion: How Modern Abstractions Hide Ancient Realities [Table Of Contents], Carlin A. Barton, Daniel Boyarin 2016 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Imagine No Religion: How Modern Abstractions Hide Ancient Realities [Table Of Contents], Carlin A. Barton, Daniel Boyarin

Religion

“A timely contribution to a growing and important conversation about the inadequacy of our common category ‘religion’ for the understanding of many practices, attitudes, emotions, and beliefs—especially of peoples in other times and contexts—that we usually classify as ‘religion.’” —Wayne A. Meeks, Yale University


The Matter Of Voice: Sensual Soundings [Table Of Contents], Karmen MacKendrick 2016 Le Moyne College

The Matter Of Voice: Sensual Soundings [Table Of Contents], Karmen Mackendrick

Philosophy

The Matter of Voice is a work of philosophical theology in a multidisciplinary and poetic key. Its central organizing insight is that voice and voicing are productive of corporeality and rhythm in language. As MacKendrick shows, at the heart of the voice is ‘an irreducible and carnal strangeness’ that refuses closure and invites passion back into thinking. The book is a sterling exemplar of the richness that results from attending to the somatic quality of words, yielding a layering of ideas that forms a virtual chorus of multiperspectival thinking.” —Patricia Cox Miller, Syracuse University

Medical Breakthroughs In The Islamic Golden Age: Models And Inspirations For Muslim Youth And Adults Alike, Shareef Gamal Mohamed Kotb 2016 Merrimack College

Medical Breakthroughs In The Islamic Golden Age: Models And Inspirations For Muslim Youth And Adults Alike, Shareef Gamal Mohamed Kotb

Honors Program Capstone Projects

Great discoveries, inventions and innovations in the sciences as well as other branches of knowledge were developed during the Islamic Golden Age (7th-13th century). During this period in time, scientists such as Al Kindi and Avicenna (Ibn-Sina) served as bridges between the Ancient Greeks and the Western World, transferring and nurturing these branches of knowledge, most notably the field of medicine. These scientists were able to attain much knowledge about medicine through the support of the religion of Islam, the Caliphates of this region, and the language, as they all helped to support this one cause. These innovators were able ...


Mimesis: Foot Washing From Luke To John, Keith Yoder 2016 University of Massachusetts

Mimesis: Foot Washing From Luke To John, Keith Yoder

Keith L. Yoder

In this paper I argue that the Foot Washing of John 13:1–17 is a creative imitation of the Foot Washing and Foot Anointing of Luke 7:36–50. Building on significant but neglected previous scholarship, I present many previously unexplored literary connections between these two texts. The density, order, distinction, and interpretability of the parallel connections establishes an intertextual relationship of innovative emulation, that combination of mimēsis and zēlōsis widely practiced by authors of the classical and late antique eras. The latent directionality of the parallels in the two narratives points to Luke's as the original and ...

Buddhism : A Concise Introduction, Huston Smith, Philip Novak 2016 Department of Religion and Philosophy, Dominican University of California

Buddhism : A Concise Introduction, Huston Smith, Philip Novak

Philip Novak

Smith and Novak cover the essential teachings, practices, and historical development of Buddhism in all its rich variety. Beginning with the life and legend of the Buddha, Buddhism explores core Buddhist doctrines such as the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, nirvana, and emptiness. The authors go on to discuss the split between Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism, the continued divisions of Mahayana into Pure Land, Zen, and Tibetan Buddhism, and the confluence of Hinduism and Buddhism in India. The second half of the book follows the global migration of Buddhism and its continuing diversification and development in the West, especially ...

Objective Research? In The Seminary?, Terry Robertson 2016 Andrews University

Objective Research? In The Seminary?, Terry Robertson

Terry Dwain Robertson

Common understandings of “objective” research include values such as “factual” and “interpretive neutrality”. There is a growing consensus that the person doing the research, counts as much as if not more in the interpretive outcomes than the “facts” alone, and that “interpretive neutrality” is not possible. The poster explores an alternative framing of “objective research” as the grounded, intentional and savvy analysis of an “object” in conversation with a community of peers/experts for the purpose of creating knowledge. Following Ferraris’ ontology, three classes of “objects” exist. 1. Natural objects: exist whether or not a person notices them. Example: table ...


Pilgrimage, Spiritual Tourism And The Shaping Of Transnational ‘Imagined Communities’: The Case Of The Tidjani Ziyara To Fez, Johara Berriane 2016 University Mohammed VI Polytechnique

Pilgrimage, Spiritual Tourism And The Shaping Of Transnational ‘Imagined Communities’: The Case Of The Tidjani Ziyara To Fez, Johara Berriane

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

This paper aims at analysing the role of the transnational Tidjani pilgrimage to Fez in shaping a sense of belonging among West African adepts and their identification with Morocco. It is based on the assumption that the Tidjani pilgrimage has contributed to the shaping of a religious ‘imagined community’ (Anderson, 1996) encompassing West Africa and Morocco and to the reinforcement of the position of Fez as its ‘socio-cultural centre’ (Cohen, 1992). This paper explores the different historical and political factors that contributed to the evolution and maintaining of the Tidjani pilgrimage practice and to giving sense to it, and analyses ...

Ellen White’S Use Of The Veil Imagery And Her Progressive Understanding Of The Book Of Hebrews, Samuel Pagán de Jesus 2016 Andrews University

Ellen White’S Use Of The Veil Imagery And Her Progressive Understanding Of The Book Of Hebrews, Samuel Pagán De Jesus

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

Since receiving her first visions of the sanctuary in heaven early in her ministry, Ellen White’s writings have guided the church in its understanding of Christ’s sanctuary ministry. The concept of a veil that divided the two apartments of the earthly sanctuary was a key component for Ellen White in her description of these realities in heaven. Her visions were described in mostly literal terms, although not all that she saw in heaven could be taken literally. The focus of the visions were not to give details of celestial architectural space, but rather to communicate confidence in Jesus ...

The Interplay Between Forms Of Revelation: Implications For Theological Methodology, Andrew Tompkins 2016 Andrews University

The Interplay Between Forms Of Revelation: Implications For Theological Methodology, Andrew Tompkins

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

The interplay between forms of revelation has been a matter of much discussion in theological discourse for many centuries. While this paper is not particularly concerned with the final say on the doctrine of revelation it is concerned with revelation and its relation to theological method. In other words, what is the significance of the various modes or forms that revelation takes in connection with the way theology is approached and done? The thesis of this paper is that God is not limited to one form of revelation, but rather that each revelatory form can and does inform the others ...


Gutierrez And Marx: Christian Ethics From The Roots Of Marxism, Omar Montilla 2016 Andrews University

Gutierrez And Marx: Christian Ethics From The Roots Of Marxism, Omar Montilla

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

The study of theology in the last century faced constant calls for relevance and connection with human struggles. Many responses thought to make theology more significant in relation to politics and ethics. Liberation theology is one of such responses focused on the social struggle of Central and South American countries, influencing also several countries and sectors of society around the world. The writings of Carl Marx became involved in many of the social movements in the twentieth century. It was used by liberation theology in their search for

relevance and understanding of the struggles of society. Marxist ideal is that ...


Interpretations Of Spiritual House In 1 Peter 2:4–10 And Their Implications On The Indwelling Of Divine Presence, Cory Wetterlin 2016 Andrews University

Interpretations Of Spiritual House In 1 Peter 2:4–10 And Their Implications On The Indwelling Of Divine Presence, Cory Wetterlin

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

The person-to-person paradigm of divine presence within the OT, the time of the first advent of Jesus in the NT, and after the second advent of the Jesus in the New Jerusalem poses a question of divine presence for the waiting period in between Jesus ascension and Second Advent. In what way is the Holy Spirit present with the Christian church during this time of waiting? The question for this research is in what way, if at all, does the concept of the spiritual house of 1 Peter address the issue of divine presence? The way in which this research ...


Adventism In The Shadow Of Fundamentalism, Samuel Pagán de Jesus 2016 Andrews University

Adventism In The Shadow Of Fundamentalism, Samuel Pagán De Jesus

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

Adventism emerged in the midst of the 19th century, right towards the end of the Second Great Awakening; a Protestant revival movement that swept the developing young nation. After the great disappointment of 1844, a small group of faithful Bible students continued to seek answers through the Scriptures, and came to the conviction that in 1844, Christ, our High Priest, entered the second phase of his priestly ministry. By 1863, they had organized into a church under the name of Seventh-day Adventist. At the same time that Adventism was organizing for its worldwide mission, other philosophical competitors like Darwinism, Liberalism ...


The Person And Work Of Christ As Representative Rectification: The Soteriological And Theodical Implications Of The Roles Of The Two Adams Examined In Theological Canonical Exegesis Of Romans 5:12–21, Tim Arena 2016 Andrews University

The Person And Work Of Christ As Representative Rectification: The Soteriological And Theodical Implications Of The Roles Of The Two Adams Examined In Theological Canonical Exegesis Of Romans 5:12–21, Tim Arena

Seminary Scholarship Symposium

This study will examine this issue in light of the centuries of debate about the subject, in order to more clearly ascertain the nature of the various soteriological implications that emerge. Theological exegesis of Romans 5:12–21 reveals significant doctrinal interconnectivity regarding the roles of our first parents and Christ as the Representatives of the human race—the core of the “Federal” View—with condemnation and death for all by birth in Adam, and justification and life for those receiving Christ’s gift. This representative conception seems to account best for the scriptural materials in light of the exegetical ...
