Arvo Pärt: Sounding The Sacred [Toc], Peter Bouteneff, Jeffers Engelhardt, Robert Saler

Religion

Scholarly writing on the music of Arvo Pärt is situated primarily in the fields of musicology (analyzing Pärt’s signature “tintinnabuli” method), cultural and media studies (Pärt’s audience is uncannily broad within and beyond the contemporary classical world) and, more recently, in terms of theology/spirituality (Pärt is primarily a composer of sacred music).

The Scriptures And Culture: Examining The Skew Of Postmodern Christianity, Andrew J. Ondo Jun 2020

The Scriptures And Culture: Examining The Skew Of Postmodern Christianity, Andrew J. Ondo

Diligence: Journal of the Liberty University Online Religion Capstone in Research and Scholarship

Throughout history there have surely been detractors of truth and objectivity in the Christian faith, presenting at times subtly and at others with a profound transparency.

As society hurdles onward into the postmodern era there is a continuing problem which arises from that same postmodern worldview, wherein the culturally accepted "good" is in and the biblically based truth is out. It seems that the old adage, "in like sin," could not ring any more accurately than in this present age. So, in order to make this clear, the provided ...

Philosophers And Priests: Nietzsche’S Engagement With Vedanta And His Problematic Confusions In On The Genealogy Of Morals, Pranati Parikh

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Friedrich Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals seeks to deconstruct the seepage of slave morality, arising in and of Christian dogma, in the quotidian lives of people. A manifestation of slave morality is the motivation for people to imbibe or support an “ascetic ideal,” which consists of poverty, humility, and chastity. Nietzsche devotes one of his three treatises in On the Genealogy of Morals to explicating the ascetic ideal, presumptively in order to draw attention to the evils of slave morality. Nietzsche adopts a unique approach to this explication. Rather than to draw attention to the suffering of people ...
