This book provides a new approach to Albrecht Ritschl’s theology. Leif Svensson argues that Ritschl’s theological project must be related to three cultural developments – historical criticism, materialism, and anti-Lutheran polemics – and understood in the context of the de-Christianization of the Bildungsbürgertum in nineteenth-century Germany. “Albrecht Ritschl remains the great unknown of nineteenth-century theology. In this important study, Leif Svensson sheds new light on Ritschl’s thought by relating it to contemporaneous social and cultural developments. Rooted in deep familiarity with German intellectual life of the time, the book convincingly illustrates the value of a history of theology that is mindful of its various contexts.” – Johannes Zachhuber University of Oxford “I confess I was hesitant to blurb a book on Ritschl, but then I read it. Svensson’s well researched presentation of Ritschl’s thought is compelling and forceful. I highly recommend this book.” – Stanley Hauerwas Duke Divinity School “Svensson’s work ably places Ritschl’s contribution to theology in the broader context of the intellectual and cultural history of the nineteenth century. Students of Protestant theology and thought and all interested in the complex relationship between Christian theology and modernity will learn something of value from this important study.” – Thomas Albert Howard Valparaiso University

Religion has dominated colonialism since the 16th century. 'Religion and the Secular' critically examines how religion has been used to subject indigenous concepts to the needs of colonial powers. Essays present the colonial relationship from the perspective of colonized cultures - including Mexico, Guatemala, Vietnam, India, Japan, South Africa and Canada - and colonizing powers, namely England, Germany and the United States. The volume offers a historical and ethnographical analysis of the relationship between the sacred and the secular, examining religion in relation to politics, economics and civil power.

The Protestant Social Cong. (¿Evangelish-Sozialer Kongress¿), met each year from 1890 to 1914 to discuss Germany¿s sudden transformation into an industrial capitalist society. It served as a forum for Wilhelmine Germany¿s educated middle class. Prof. & public leaders such as Friedrich Naumann, Max Weber, Ernst Troeltsch, Gertrud Baumer, Adolf von Harnack, & Hans Delbruck addressed the yearly meetings. A cross-section of the occup. making up the ¿Bildungsburgertum¿ listened to them, with church officials, teachers, civil servants, academics, businessmen, & doctors in attendance. The printed protocols of the Cong. allow us to reconstruct how these educated Protestants responded to the political & social forces impinging on their culture.

Thomas Mann S Joseph Und Seine Br Der And The Phallic Theology Of The Old Testament

When Thomas Mann began to work on his Joseph novel, he was motivated to do so by the image of the beautiful seventeen-year-old youth and the erotic attraction this image exercised on him personally. He undertook to retell the biblical story of Joseph in order to explore the meaning of this attraction. In the phallic theology of the Old Testament - Israel's covenant with Yahweh was a sacred marriage, outwardly marked by circumcision, for the purpose of mutual sanctification and aggrandizement - Mann discovered the framework of a metaphysics of homoerotic desire. This book explores the many implications Mann found in his biblical source, including the paradoxical notion that a certain degree of suppression of the original desire is required if it is to continue to play its all-important role as a motivating force.

This study traces how Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), founder of Anthroposophy and the Waldorf schools, and the sociologist Max Weber (1864-1920) confronted the societal transformations in fin-de-siecle Germany as their primary identity marker - Bildung or self-formation - began to break down. The book documents the German bourgeoisie's failure to modernise as an - imagined community, shedding new light on the larger question about the interrelationship of science, religion, and culture by situating Weber's and Steiner's work into the broader context of the sociocultural and socio-political transformations during which it was created. Moreover, by exploring the influences across disciplines in a historical context the book provides insight into the cultural implications of new social science and religion at the beginning of the twentieth century."

The German Jewish Dialogue Reconsidered

Was there a German-Jewish dialogue? This seemingly innocent question was silenced by the Holocaust. Since then, it is out of the question to take comfortable refuge to a distant past when Mendelssohn and Lessing started this dialogue. Adorno/Horkheimer, Arendt, and above all Scholem have repeatedly pointed out, how the noble promises of the Enlightenment were perverted, which led to a complete failure of Jewish emancipation in Germany. It is against this backdrop of warning posts that we dare to return to an important chapter of Jewish culture in Germany. This project should not be seen, however, as an attempt to idealize the past or to harmonize the present, but as a plea for a new dialogue between Germans and Jews about their common past.

Heidegger And Theology

Martin Heidegger is the 20th century theology philosopher with the greatest importance to theology. A cradle Catholic originally intended for the priesthood, Heidegger's studies in philosophy led him to turn first to Protestantism and then to an atheistic philosophical method. Nevertheless, his writings remained deeply indebted to theological themes and sources, and the question of the nature of his relationship with theology has been a subject of discussion ever since. This book offers theologians and philosophers alike a clear account of the directions and the potential of this debate. It explains Heidegger's key ideas, describes their development and analyses the role of theology in his major writings, including his lectures during the National Socialist era. It reviews the reception of Heidegger's thought both by theologians in his own day (particularly in Barth and his school as well as neo-Scholasticism) and more recently (particularly in French phenomenology), and concludes by offering directions for theology's possible future engagement with Heidegger's work.

Antisemitismus Paganismus V Lkische Religion

Antisemitismus und Antijudaismus gehören zur gesellschaftlichen Wirklichkeit Europas seit der Antike. Die politischen, ökonomischen und sozialen Umbrüche im letzten Drittel des 19. Jahrhunderts bereiteten Weltanschauungen den Boden, die sich in starkem Maße über Feindbilder definierten. In der völkischen Bewegung verbanden sich an der Wende zum 20. Jahrhundert antisemitische mit nicht-christlichen religiösen Strömungen. In der Folge entstanden in Deutschland und Österreich Gemeinschaften und Bewegungen, die den Antisemitismus als Legitimation von so genannten "arteigenen" Religionen benutzten. Bestandteil des synkretistischen neuheidnischen Paganismus ist der Rückgriff auf antike Religionen, während "germanische" Modelle in die völkischen Religionsentwürfe eingegangen sind. Der Sammelband stellt Antisemitismus als Sozialmythos, als System von Stereotypen und als Glaubenssystem in den Rahmen von Religionswissenschaft sowie Religions- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte. Die Beiträge vermitteln Einblicke in das gesellschaftliche, kulturelle und religiöse Umfeld, in dem das "Neuheidentum" zu verorten ist, und in die ideologischen wie organisatorischen Verbindungen mit dem Antisemitismus.
