  • Keeping Theology and Religious Studies Together

      Authors: Marcel Sarot
      Abstract: AbstractIn this article, I offer some personal reflections on the developments NTT Journal for Theology and the Study of Religion has gone through in recent years. Moreover, I argue that the continuing existence of journals like NTT JTSR is important for three reasons. (1) This type of general journals counterbalances the overspecialization that characterizes today’s universities. (2) Their rootedness in particular geographical areas and political entities makes that this type of journal makes a distinctive contribution to theology and religious studies. (3) It is important that this journal keeps theology and religious studies together in one journal, for in spite of centrifugal forces at work, they belong together.

  • Revolution statt Religion: Anacharsis Cloots – der atheistische
           Revolutionär

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Daniela Mueller
      Abstract: AbstractRevolution, not Religion. Anacharsis Cloots – The Atheist RevolutionaryOn March 24, 1794, Jean-Baptiste Cloots, a native of Kleve on the Lower Rhine who styled himself Anacharsis, lost his life under the guillotine in Paris. While the reasons for his execution are diverse, one important explanation can be found in his attitude towards religion in antithesis to that of Robespierre. Cloots’, seemingly inevitable development from deist (i.e. a representative of the natural religion in the tradition of Voltaire) to nihilist as well as his correspondingly evolving views on religion and church are very clearly connected to the different stages of his life. This article will, therefore, integrate Cloots’ biography with his religious views to illuminate his struggle against church and religion in antithesis to Robespierre. In retrospect, Cloots was pioneering not only for rejecting revelatory religion but even more so for his rejection of natural religion.

  • De afbakening, delen en opbouw van Exodus 19:1–31:18

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nico Riemersma
      Abstract: AbstractThe Delimitation, Partition and Structure of Exodus 19:1–31:18Many scholars consider Exodus 19–24 the first great story unit of the last complex of Exodus (19:1–40:38). Concerning this story unit there are three problems: (1) the delimitation, (2) the partition, and (3) the structure of this story unit. Firstly, Exodus 19:1 may form the beginning of the story unit, 19:1 is also the final clause of Exodus 18:1–27. A lot of commentators consider 24:18 the end of this story unit. I, however, argue that there is more reason to see 31:18 as the end. Secondly, the partition of the story units after the introduction (19:1–2c). The reader can distinguish three time-units: (a) 19:2d–8c+19:8d–15; (b) 19:16–20:20+20:21–24:4a; (c) 24:4b–31:18. Thirdly, the structure of Exodus 19:1–31:18 is as follows: 19:1–2c (exposition); A 19:2d–8c (programmatic oracle) + 19:8d–15 (announcement of the coming and descent of Jhwh) → B 19:16–20:20 (coming and descent of Jhwh); A’ 20:21–24:4a (working out of the promised future in the programmatic oracle); B’ 24:4b–31:18 (oracle for the institution of the cultus, in which Jhwh can come).

  • Erik H. Erikson, Young Man Luther: A Study in Psychoanalysis and History
           (1958)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hetty Zock
      Abstract: AbstractAs part of NTT JTSR’s series on Key Texts, the present article discusses Erik H. Erikson’s interdisciplinary, psychohistorical study of the young Martin Luther, its reception, and its relevance for today. Erikson showed how Luther’s own identity crisis – emerging from the troubled relationship with his father – converged with a crisis in late medieval society and theology, and how being a talented homo religiosus helped Luther to solve both crises at the same time, presenting a “religiosity for the adult man” in accordance with the Renaissance need for autonomy. It is argued that during his psychosocial study of Luther and the latter’s cultural context, Erikson developed a general, existential theory of religion that is also relevant for an understanding of the search for identity and religion in modern times.

  • Introduction: Modernity and Transcendence1

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anthony J. Carroll; Staf Hellemans
      Abstract: AbstractThe idea of a Catholic modernity, first introduced by Charles Taylor in 1996, offers a third “grand strategy” of relating modernity and religion (transcendence) in our time. In this introduction, the project is presented: six leading authors from different religious traditions (David and Bernice Martin, Francis Schüssler Fiorenza, Robert Cummings Neville, Souleymane Bachir Diagne and Jonathan Boyarin) examine the idea of a Catholic modernity and Taylor responds to their reflections and looks back 25 years on.

  • Pointing to Transcendence: Reflections from an Anglican Context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Martin
      Abstract: AbstractAfter a critical examination of western master narratives of modernization and secularization, David Martin focuses, first, on one of the variants of Christian modernity, Anglican modernity. The Anglican Church provides a simulacrum of the universal church as it ranges from the Catholic to the Evangelical and Pentecostal and is, hence, rigged also by many of the problems confronting the church in the contemporary world. Next, Martin considers some examples of unanchored spirituality and free-floating faith that have, in his opinion, no serious future as major expressions of Christianity—he discusses, in particular, Schumann’s paradigm of Romantic music. Though inevitably fallible, churches are to be regarded as pointers to transcendence, opening, in the words of William Blake, “the doors of perception.” Without the institutional church to protect and perpetuate the Christian language of transcendence and provide ritual re-enactment of the Christian story of ruin and restoration, the Anglican/Christian vision would be as vulnerable and ephemeral as most contemporary forms of non-institutional, un-anchored “spirituality” [the editors].

  • A Pentecostal Modernity' Response to Charles Taylor’s “A Catholic
           Modernity'”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bernice Martin
      Abstract: AbstractThere are somewhere between 200 million and 600 million Pentecostal/ Charismatic Christians in the world today. Most of them live in the “majority world,” and two thirds are women. Pentecostals are proud of being modern and frequently boast of it. Yet “Pentecostal modernity” is not a straightforward clone of the intellectual and political history of Europe and the North Atlantic. It contains paradoxical elements that can be plausibly interpreted as evidence of purposefully moral selectiveness by Pentecostals among the items in the “modern” cultural program. They in effect help to “heal the wounds of modernity.” This account of Pentecostal modernity also seeks to show that in two particular respects Pentecostal modernity might be considered a “correction” of Charles Taylor’s western model of modernity: in regarding human flourishing as spiritually sanctioned; and in retaining a porous model of the self, vertically open to possession by the Spirit or by forces of evil, and horizontally open by retaining some “dividual” characteristics of embeddedness with others.

  • Transcendence, Catholicism and the Challenges of Modernity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Francis Schüssler Fiorenza
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay first outlines the distinctive and significant features of Taylor’s interpretation of modernity and secularization, especially, his emphasis on the immanent frame within a naturalism closed to transcendence. The essay then offers some different perspectives, not intended as a critique of Taylor, but rather to underscore elements in need of greater emphasis. My perspective acknowledges more lines of continuity between modernity and previous times. Traditional theological affirmations of infinity, omnipresence, and creativity have in the past spurred negative and apophatic theologies. They have also sought an interpretation of transcendence as embedded in the world of nature and human life in ways that point to the sacral and sacramental character of the world and human behavior. These interpretations can be retrieved to think the modern world as suffused with transcendence. Transcendence is not closed to modern buffered selves. Many exemplify a transcendence that goes beyond their own interests. They are aware of their finitude and realize that transcendence is a mystery.

  • Confucian Modernity, Ultimacies, and Transcendence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Robert Cummings Neville
      Abstract: AbstractI want to engage Taylor with a comparative Confucian vision of modernity. In order to do this, I need to present a metaphysics which can serve as a framework for comparisons necessary for a global philosophical historical perspective on modernity and transcendence and in which, in particular, I can represent both Christian and Confucian categories as alternative specifications of ultimate reality. Using non-personalistic metaphors of spontaneous emergence and stressing (dis)harmonies, Confucian philosophy gives its own specification of the ultimate conditions of human life. This will allow me to sketch how Confucian modernists might engage with modernity. I will thus defend in Confucian terms Taylor’s claim that genuine religious transcendence is possible within the conditions of modernity.

  • Time, Transcendence in Islamic Thought and an Embrace of “Catholic
           Modernity”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Souleymane Bachir Diagne
      Abstract: AbstractTaylor characterizes Western modernity as being very inhospitable to the transcendent, yet also as opening an opportunity for a renewed engagement with the transcendent from within modernity. This debate is also vivid in Islam and I will reconstruct it by focusing on the concept of time (dahr). Some strains in Islam condemned the posture of maximizing the “flourishing of life” within the limits of (a life)time as dahriya because it would, in their eyes, constitute a rejection altogether of the transcendent. This position was seen as the quintessence of “the philosophers” (al Ghazali) and of Western modernity (al Afghani). Opposing this view, I will then explain how and why I can make a rapprochement between Charles Taylor’s proposal of a “Catholic modernity” and Islamic modernity through the lenses of Muhammad Iqbal’s philosophy of time. Through his analysis of the hadith “Do not vilify time, because time is God,” Iqbal shows that time (dahr) should not be considered as the antithesis of transcendence, but that in time, from within dahr, transcendence is present: in “creative evolution” (Bergson), life is not enclosed in immanence, but on the contrary God is manifesting himself under his name dahr.

  • Out of the Depths of Modernity: Fragments of a Response to Charles
           Taylor’s “A Catholic Modernity'” in a Jewish Idiom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jonathan Boyarin
      Abstract: AbstractFor two main reasons, I am not much tempted to articulate a “Jewish modernity” analogous to “a Catholic modernity” as presented by Charles Taylor. First, modernity is “lost”. In the last decades, dreams of a bright secular future of modernity (“later is better”) have collapsed. This affects also the possible role one envisages for non-scientific allegiances and worldviews. It renders this engagement with Taylor seem almost nostalgic or retrospective. Second, I have reservations about many of the concepts Taylor is using. Some of them, like theology and transcendence, are specific to a tradition in ways that must be specified. Others, like religion, the secular and modernity, likewise demand more definite settings. Taylor’s generous Catholicism, extending to the (pre-Christian) past, is a post-Catholicism as it attempts, like various post-Judaisms, to find a new place for Catholicism in a modernity characterized by skepticism and naturalism. Finally, Taylor’s critique of “rights talk” is contrasted to a Jewish notion of mutual obligation.

      Authors: Charles Taylor
      Abstract: AbstractIn this essay, I comment on the contributions of the six authors who have critically reflected on my notion of a ‘Catholic Modernity’ from their own perspectives. Selecting particular issues from these authors to comment on was challenging due to the richness of each contribution. I comment, among others, on the crucial question of religious violence and intolerance in our world and the related issue of how to deal with pluralism among and within religions: we can no longer identify a particular religion with “its” civilization or nation, be it in the form of Christendom, Islamicate, or religious nationalism.

  • A Catholic Modernity 25 Years on

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Charles Taylor
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay develops central themes which I have originally set out in my lecture “A Catholic Modernity'” of 1996. I extend those initial reflections by offering further considerations which I have elucidated over the last 25 years. These include the significance of understanding disenchantment and unbundling in coming to terms with the changes involved in modernity. I also sketch a multi-layered hermeneutical approach for “reading the signs of the times” from a Christian perspective.

  • Afterword: From Catholic Modernity to Religious Modernities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anthony J. Carroll; Staf Hellemans
      Abstract: AbstractIn a time when the two major strategies followed by Christian religious traditions in modernity have lost traction—Christendom and subcultural isolation on the one hand and liberal and socialist assimilation with modernity on the other hand—Charles Taylor’s Catholic modernity idea opens up a “third grand strategy,” a new perspective on the relationship between religion and modernity. Moreover, the perspective can be put to use in other religious traditions as well. We will, hence, argue for the extension from a Catholic modernity to a religious modernities perspective. With the help of the arguments and suggestions as well as the critiques put forward by Taylor and the other authors in this volume Modernity and Transcendence, we will chart some of the main axes of this vast research field: (1) the clarification of Catholic/religious modernity; (2) the generalization of the Catholic modernity idea into a religious modernities perspective; (3) the invention of an inspiring, post-Christendom Christianity/post-fusional religion and theology; (4) the issue of religious engagement in our time—what Taylor calls “the Ricci project”; (5 and 6) the need for encompassing theories of modernity and religion (transcendence).

  • Introduction: Views on the Mediterranean

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pieter B. Hartog; Elisa Uusimäki
      Abstract: AbstractThis brief article introduces the theme of this issue as well as the contents of the individual contributions it contains. The issue brings together the topic of travel and movement in the ancient eastern Mediterranean and the Mediterranean as a category of research. Furthermore, it highlights a range of visual matters with a focus on visionary experiences and the motif of seeing. More specifically, the studies included in the issue concentrate on such themes as eyewitnessing, visits to religious and other sites, engagement with material objects, and the practise of imagination in visualization. In so doing, the present issue offers diverse perspectives on the intersections of movement and visuality in late antiquity, including in ancient Jewish, early Christian, and ‘pagan’ contexts.
