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 ...


The Clash Of Modernities: The Islamist Challenge To Jewish, Turkish, And Arab Nationalists, Khaldoun Samman Nov 2010

The Clash Of Modernities: The Islamist Challenge To Jewish, Turkish, And Arab Nationalists, Khaldoun Samman

Khaldoun Samman

Professor Samman’s latest book, Clash of Modernities: The Islamist Challenge to Jewish, Turkish and Arab Nationalism was released in December 2010. Samman challenges Eurocentric theorists who peddle the clash of civilization thesis by demonstrating that what in fact is clashing are not civilizational differences but rather a number of modernist discourses that are all trapped in a discursive tradition that has its origins in colonial modernity. This book argues that to understand the Middle East we must also understand how the West produced a temporal narrative of world history in which westerners placed themselves on top and all others ...

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 ...


Kants Vorsehungskonzept Auf Dem Hintergrund Der Deutschen Schulphilosophie Und - Theologie, Ulrich Lehner Dec 2006

Kants Vorsehungskonzept Auf Dem Hintergrund Der Deutschen Schulphilosophie Und - Theologie, Ulrich Lehner

Ulrich L. Lehner

Reviews: "Quiconque voudrait désormais étudier la compréhension moderne de l’histoire, du progrès et de la religion nuirait à la précision de son propos s’il s’exemptait de la lecture de Kants Vorsehungskonzept. On relèvera enfin à ce livre le trop rare mérite d’avoir concilié avec une grande compétence l’étude des approches à la fois philosophiques et théologiques." Charles Morerod O.P., bishop of Fribourg, in Nova et Vetera (French Edition), 4/2011.

"Lehner’s extensive research fills a gap in a unique way. He enriches the study of Kant’s philosophy in an as yet neglected ...


The Intellectual Origins Of Popular Catholicism: Catholic Moral Theology In The Age Of Enlightenment, Michael Printy Dec 2004

The Intellectual Origins Of Popular Catholicism: Catholic Moral Theology In The Age Of Enlightenment, Michael Printy

Michael Printy

The popular Catholic revival of the nineteenth century was preceded by an intellectual revolution that enabled the Catholic Church to overcome its traditional suspicion of popular religious practices. Central to this transformation was the elaboration of the moral-theological doctrine of equiprobabilism in response to rigorist Augustinian moral pessimism, most fruitfully by Alphonsus of Liguori (1696-1787). His moral theology would set the Church in confrontation with the Catholic Enlightenment. On account of this shift in moral theology, Catholicism was best able of the major Christian churches to preserve within its institutional fold the broad religious revival of the nineteenth century.


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 ...
