To The Jew First: A Socio-Historical And Biblical-Theological Analysis Of The Pauline Teaching Of `Election' In Light Of Second Temple Jewish Patterns Of Thought, Anthony Thornhill Dec 2012

To The Jew First: A Socio-Historical And Biblical-Theological Analysis Of The Pauline Teaching Of `Election' In Light Of Second Temple Jewish Patterns Of Thought, Anthony Thornhill

A. Chadwick Thornhill

Paul's "doctrine" of election has remained a controversial and enigmatic topic for centuries. Few studies, however, have approached Paul's doctrine through the context of Second Temple Judaism. This study examines Paul's view of election through the lens of Second Temple Jewish texts written prior to 70 CE. In doing so, it is argued that the best framework through which to view Paul's discussion of election is through a primarily corporate model of election. While such a model is rooted in Judaism, Paul departs from his Jewish contemporaries in arguing that the locus of election is in ...

Enlightenment And The Creation Of German Catholicism, Michael Printy Dec 2008

Enlightenment And The Creation Of German Catholicism, Michael Printy

Michael Printy

This book tells the story of how eighteenth-century German Catholics rethought the Church. Educated German Catholics envisioned a Church that would solidify the link between religion, civilization, and morality. The first account of the German Catholic Enlightenment, this book explores the ways in which eighteenth-century Germans reconceived the relationship between religion, society, and the state. Seeking a balance between Germany and Rome, Catholic reformers desired a national Church that would enjoy a large measure of autonomy but would still be in communion with the universal Church. In trying to reform the Church, educated Catholics in the Holy Roman Empire questioned ...


Beda Mayr Osb: Vertheidigung Der Katholischen Religion Nach Den Bedürfnissen Unserer Zeit (1789). Der Erste Schritt Zur Künftigen Vereinigung Der Katholischen Und Evangelischen Kirche, Ulrich Lehner Dec 2008

Beda Mayr Osb: Vertheidigung Der Katholischen Religion Nach Den Bedürfnissen Unserer Zeit (1789). Der Erste Schritt Zur Künftigen Vereinigung Der Katholischen Und Evangelischen Kirche, Ulrich Lehner

Ulrich L. Lehner

The monastic erudition of the old religious orders was a pillar of the Catholic Enlightenment within the Holy Roman Empire and many other European countries. Despite the enormous importance the monks had as champions of programmatic Enlightenment ideas, few of their original texts are available in modern editions. The present edition contributes to filling this lacuna by making available the main work of the Benedictine monk, Beda Mayr (1742a "1794), who developed a modern and ecumenical Catholic theology. Reviews: "'Ulrich Lehner must be congratulated for this fine edition of the third volume of Mayr’s Defence. It is a welcome ...


Die Scholastische Theologie Im Zeitalter Der Gnadenstreitigkeiten I: Neue Texte Von Diego Paez († 1582), Diego Del Mármol († 1664) Und Gregor Von Valencia († 1603), Ulrich Lehner Dec 2006

Die Scholastische Theologie Im Zeitalter Der Gnadenstreitigkeiten I: Neue Texte Von Diego Paez († 1582), Diego Del Mármol († 1664) Und Gregor Von Valencia († 1603), Ulrich Lehner

Ulrich L. Lehner

Die Gnadenstreitigkeiten des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts bilden die entscheidende geistesgeschichtliche Auseinandersetzung der frühen Neuzeit. Sie führen vor Augen, wie die katholische Theologie zum letzten Mal aus eigener rationaler Anstrengung heraus die christliche Welt zu polarisieren verstand, indem sie - gespalten in die Lager von Molinisten, Augustinisten und Thomisten - das Wirken der göttlichen Gnadenhilfe zu erklären versuchte. Die hier versammelten Editionen zweier bisher unbekannter Jesuitentheologen, Diego Paez und Diego Marmol, verfolgen den Gang der spanischen Jesuitentheologie im 17. Jahrhundert und bereichern dadurch auch die Geschichtsschreibung der neuzeitlichen Philosophie. Ein Dossier über Gregor von Valencia gibt weiteres Material an die Hand, um ...


Martin Knutzen Philosophischer Beweis Von Der Wahrheit Der Christlichen Religion (1747), Ulrich Lehner Dec 2004

Martin Knutzen Philosophischer Beweis Von Der Wahrheit Der Christlichen Religion (1747), Ulrich Lehner

Ulrich L. Lehner

Review: This text, and the series it introduces, are of interest to Anglophone scholars on a number of grounds. Martin Knutzen (1713-51), although forgotten in Germany as well as in the west, was in his day a bright light of Ko¨nigsberg scholarship and bridged the period between the time when Halle Pietism was the dominant force in the scholarship of East Prussia and the Enlightenment of the later eighteenth century. That Immanuel Kant and Johann George Hamann (who referred to him as 'the famous Knutzen') were his pupils suggests clearly enough that he was man of substance; and the ...
