By Prof. Dr. Peter A. Berger, Prof. Dr. Klaus Hock, Prof. Dr. Thomas Klie (auth.), Peter A. Berger, Klaus Hock, Thomas Klie (eds.)

Posttraditionale Gemeinschaften tragen durch die Erschaffung ortsgebundener Utopien mit eigenen Mythen und Ritualen zur Wiederverzauberung der Welt bei, so der französische Soziologe Michel Maffesoli. An der Universität Rostock wird untersucht, inwiefern diese Gemeinschaften Ausdrucksgestalten einer Religionsproduktivität darstellen. Bilden sich über eine religionshybride Kultur neue Formen von faith oder religiös überformte Lebensstile jenseits institutionalisierter Religionspraktiken heraus? Entgegen der revisionsbedürftigen those vom Verschwinden der faith soll in Erfahrung gebracht werden, wie sich faith an alten Dorfkirchen und anderen auratischen Orten möglicherweise neu und anders herausbildet. In den Blick geraten somit auch die besonderen Formen von Vergemeinschaftung und Vernetzung, Festkulturen und occasions wie Hoffeste, Werthaltungen und soziale Motive.

By Susan Haskins

The conventional inspiration of Mary Magdalen has been one in every of a prostitute who committed herself to following the methods of Jesus. All that readers understand of the true Mary Magdalen comes from 4 biblical references within the gospels. utilizing facts from early Christian writings, medieval sermons, and the paintings and literature of approximately 2,000 years, Haskins exhibits how Mary Magdalen got here to epitomize the situation of ladies within the Church and in society.
Reviews:
From Publishers Weekly
A interesting trip via heritage and its texts (poems, performs, work, motion pictures) to determine the numerous pictures of Mary Magdalen. What Haskins emphasizes as she finds how every one period has shaped Mary Magdalen in accordance with its personal particular pursuits and wishes, is that those differing representations regularly negate Mary Magdalen's robust place in Christ's ministry. From her gospel roles as Christ's leader lady disciple and His apostle to the apostles (roles Haskins unearths elaborated in Gnostic texts), Mary Magdalen has been remodeled into the penitent whore. As such, she has develop into the embodiment of the sinful frailty and temptations of her intercourse. therefore, Haskins exhibits, the Western Church has used its photos of Mary Magdalen to justify and perpetuate the subordinate place of girls. the significance of Haskins's e-book is that it turns Mary Magdalen right into a image for women's correct to complete participation in Christian ministry. Illustrations no longer visible by means of PW. BOMC, historical past booklet membership, QPB selections.
From Library Journal
In The final Temptation of Christ , Nikos Kazantzakis calls Mary Magdalen "sexual temptation personified." in response to Haskins, an English writer and translator, she is "woman, flesh--the common, undying image of man's temptation to stray from God." From this psychosexual quagmire Haskins hopes to redeem her. the writer chronologically supplies an erudite, complete examine the myriad myths and metaphors surrounding Mary Magdalen, beginning with the Gospel list itself, then tracing Western written historical past as much as and together with the Church of England's momentous selection to ordain ladies in 1992. Haskins evidently enjoys her topic. The tangled internet of male sexual paranoia, ecclesiastical machinations, and cultural mores are eloquently provided during this wealthy biographical tapestry of the much-maligned "first apostle." greatly famous and good documented, this is often hugely urged for faith, seminary, and women's reviews collections.
