GLOBAL HUMANITY AND THEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES FROM AN EASTERN VIEW
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThe corporate nature of human existence and endeavours is coming into evidence in the present day world order. At present the religious sense of ‘corporate personality’ and ‘communal behaviour’ patterns, seen in the Biblical history, are getting incarnated even in the secular sphere. In the Christian vision there are prominent strands evolved from the ‘Greek East’ and ‘Latin West’, both of which are indebted to a far prior set of Christian foundations based on the Semitic Judeo-Christian legacies evolved through the Old and New Testament worldviews. At present, ‘Syriac Orient’ is the surviving heir to the Semitic Judeo-Christian legacies. Together with the Greco-Roman thrust of Christianity, ‘Syriac Orient’ preserved and made flourish such Semitic Judeo-Christian legacies very prominently in the history of Christian theology and spirituality.
