  • Faithful Education Madrassahs in South Asia

    Riaz, Ali.
    What do we know about madrassahs? Should Western policymakers be alarmed by the recent increase in the number of these institutions in Muslim countries? Is there any connection between them and the "global jihad"? Ali Riaz responds to these questions through an in-depth examination of the madraassahs in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India. Faithful Education examines these institutions and their roles in relation to current international politics.

  • Renungan Sejarah:Timur ke Barat, Vice Versa

    Arafah Pramasto (9674507); Baroqah Meyrynaldy (9674568) (2022-04-19)
    Secara awam, “Barat” dan “Timur” akhirnya berimplikasi sebagai klasifikasi pada tingkat modernitas yang berasal dari residu ekspansi bangsa-bangsa Eropa di masa lampau. Maka, di sini akan disajikan untaian peristiwa-peristiwa dahulu yang dipayungi oleh isu-isu seputar Timur dan Barat. Bukan untuk mencari “Salah-Benar”, melainkan demi menanamkan aspek kontemplatif atas proses historis seperti pertemuan, pergesekan, atau bahkan koeksistensi harmonis keduanya.
  • Japan on the Jesuit Stage : Transmissions, Receptions, and Regional Contexts /

    Oba, Haruka,author.; Watanabe, Akihiko,author.; Schaffenrath, Florian,author.
    Japan on the Jesuit Stage offers a comprehensive overview of the representations of early modern Japan in contemporary European Neo-Latin school theater. The chapters in the volume catalog and analyze representative plays which were produced in the hundreds all over Europe, from the Iberian Peninsula to present-day Croatia and Poland. Taking full account of existing scholarship but also introducing a large amount of previously unknown primary material, the contributions by European and Japanese researchers significantly expand the horizon of investigation on early modern European theatrical reception of East Asian elements and will be of particular interest to students of global history, Neo-Latin, and theater studies.

  • Post-Christian Interreligious Liberation Theology [electronic resource] /

    Timani, Hussam S.editor.edthttp://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/edt; Ashton, Loye Sekihata.editor.edthttp://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/edt; SpringerLink (Online service)
    This book explores the ideals of liberation theology from the perspectives of major religious traditions, including Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and the neo-Vedanta and Advaita Hindu traditions. The goal of this volume is not to explain the Christian liberation theology tradition and then assess whether the non-Christian liberation theologies meet the Christian standards. Rather, authors use comparative/interreligious methodologies to offer new insights on liberation theology and begin a dialogue on how to build interreligious liberation theologies. The goal is to make liberation theology more inclusive of religious diversity beyond traditional Christian categories.
  • Historiography and ldentity IV: The Writing of History Across Medieval Eurasia

    Pohl, Walter; Mahoney, Daniel (Brepols, 2021)
    Der Band erweitert den Schwerpunkt der Reihe 'Historiography and ldentity' auf eine globale Perspektive. Im Fokus stehen historiographische Kulturen in verschiedenen Makroregionen Eurasiens: China, Japan', Iran, Südarabien, Syrien, Byzanz, Lotharingien und Spanien. Diese breitere, eurasische Perspektive kann zu einem tieferen Verständnis der sehr unterschiedlichen Wege beitragen, auf denen in historiographischen Werken „Visionen von Gemeinschaft" und Konzepte von Zugehörigkeit kommuniziert, verbreitet und verhandelt wurden.
  • Vuoden 1948 kirkolliskokouksessa esitetyt vaihtoehtoiset ratkaisutavat eronneiden uudelleenvihkimiskysymyksessä

    Helsingin yliopisto, Teologinen tiedekunta; University of Helsinki, Faculty of Theology; Helsingfors universitet, Teologiska fakulteten; Markkanen, Anna (Helsingin yliopistoUniversity of HelsinkiHelsingfors universitet, 2018)
    Käsittelen tutkielmassani vuoden 1948 kirkolliskokouksen kysymystä eronneiden uudelleenvihkimisestä. Selvitän, millaisia vaihtoehtoisia ratkaisutapoja uudelleenvihkimiskiellolle kokouksessa esitettiin ja miten niitä perusteltiin. Lisäksi selvitän, oliko kirkolliskokousedustajien välillä havaittavissa jännitteitä sekä muuttuiko joidenkin heistä kanta kokouksen aikana. Käytän menetelmänä lähilukua, jonka avulla pyrin tarkastelemaan kirkolliskokouksessa käytyjä keskusteluja mahdollisimman tarkasti. Lähteinäni ovat vuoden 1948 keskustelupöytäkirjat, joissa eronneiden uudelleenvihkimiskysymystä käsiteltiin kirkkolakikomitean mietinnön, lähetekeskustelun, siviilivaliokunnan sekä loppukeskustelun aikana.
 Sodan aikana solmittiin avioliittoja, jotka päättyivät herkästi eroon. Eduskunnan hyväksymä avioliittolaki vuodelta 1929 salli uudelleenvihkimisen. Luterilaisen kirkon oli määriteltävä kantansa lisääntyneisiin uudelleen avioitumisiin. Kirkolliskokouksessa esitettiinkin, että kirkko ei vihkisi eronneita uudelleen kristilliseen avioliittoon. Tätä perusteltiin muun muassa Raamatulla, jota pidettiin kirkon ylimpänä auktoriteettina.
 Tutkimus osoittaa, että kokouksessa esitettiin useita vaihtoehtoja uudelleenvihkimieskiellolle. Niitä olivat erityisesti eronneiden uudelleenvihkimiseen liittyvät kirkkolain pykälät, kuten uusi vihkikaava, karenssiaika ennen uuden liiton solmimista sekä yksittäisen papin tai hiippakunnan erityislupa. Kokouksessa esitettiin myös toisenlaisia vaihtoehtoja eronneiden uudelleenvihkimiskiellolle. Vihkimiskiellon vaihtoehdoilla pyrittiin avioerotilastojen pienentämiseen sekä kansalaisten seksuaalimoraalin kasvattamiseen. Näitä olivat ennaltaehkäisevä työ sekä valistustyö. Myös kirkon järjestämiä kinkereitä sekä papin jalkautumista tiiviimmin seurakuntalaisten keskuuteen pidettiin mahdollisina keinoina vaikuttaa seurakuntalaisten epäsiveelliseen elämään ja alhaiseen seksuaalimoraaliin.
 Tutkimuksen mukaan aiheen arkaluonteisuudesta huolimatta keskustelu oli pääosin asiallista, eivätkä välit jännittyneet kuin parin edustajan välillä. Kokouksen aikana ei kukaan edustajista vaihtanut kantaansa.

  • LA TEOLOGÍA ASIÁTICA DE LA LIBERACIÓN: UN CASO DE RECEPCIÓN, APROPIACIÓN Y REELABORACIÓN DE IDEAS

    Devés-Valdés, Eduardo (Universidad de Talca. Instituto de Estudios Humanísticos, 2017-07-01)
    RESUMEN En el marco de un amplio proyecto que se ocupa del estudio de las ideas y particularmente de sus circulaciones, se elabora un modelo sobre el proceso de recepción-apropiación y reelaboración. Para ello se abordan las maneras en que fue "recepcionada" la teología de la liberación de América del Sur en Asia, cómo se produjo la apropiación de elementos y reelaboraron nuevas formulaciones. En particular se estudia la obra del teólogo esrilanqués Aloysius Pieris, y su propuesta de una teología asiática de la liberación.

  • Relations between the Church and the Council for the Russian Orthodox Church Affairs in the Tashkent and Central Asian Diocese in 1946–1961

    Olga Borisova (St. Philaret’s Christian Orthodox Institute, 2017-05-01)
    The article is focused on the church life in the Tashkent and Central Asian diocese in 1946–1961, namely on how it was influenced by the Council for the Russian Orthodox Church Affairs and its appointed commissioners at the local level. In 1946–1960, when the church was oppressed and later openly persecuted by Soviet power, primarily through the appointed commissioners, the church life in the Tashkent and Central Asian diocese went through the period of revival. This became possible due to the uncompromising ministry of the devotees of faith, their loyalty to God and the firm position of the ruling bishop and the like-minded clergy and laity.

  • Considering medical missions in all its different forms – a viewpoint from the Asia-Pacific Region

    Nyalpi Nungarai; Matthew Paul; Nathan G John; Wei-Leong Goh (Health for All Nations, 2021-01-01)
    Whereas some medical missionaries may already have moved away from “traditional” models of medical mission, in the experience of the authors from the Asia-Pacific region, many potential medical missionaries in the region still imagine a stereotypical generalist medical missionary who runs a mission hospital. The authors argue that with the economic and socio-political development of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in recent decades, the landscape for medical missions has changed. Hence, contemporary medical missionaries should be well-advised to have specialist qualifications and be more likely to teach, mentor, and do research rather than only doing hands-on clinical work. Professionalism and quality, rather than “make-do,” should be the norm. There are more opportunities to partner with and strengthen existing local institutions rather than setting up a Christian health service. Furthermore, mission opportunities may be available in academia, government, or secular organisations, including places where Christianity has a hostile reception. Multi-disciplinary expertise and collaboration within health services are increasingly important and provide another opportunity for missions. Medical missionaries may also come from other LMICs, or from within the same country. Job-sharing, self-funding, or fly-in-fly-out, may be a viable and legitimate means of sending more medical missionaries. These non-traditional models of medical mission that incorporate a diversity of approaches, but without sacrificing the “traditional” missional values and practices, should allow even more people to serve in medical missions. The purpose of this paper is to survey this topic in hope of stimulating discussions on non-traditional medical mission opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

  • Kırgızistan’da bir din eğitimi kurumu: Medreseler

    Uludağ Üniversitesi/İlahiyat Fakültesi.; Pay, Salih; Kılavuz, M. Akif (Uludağ Üniversitesi, 2021-02-05)
    Kırgızistan’da ilk ve ortaöğretim düzeyinde din eğitimi-öğretimi veren okullar bulunmamaktadır. Yaygın eğitim alanında bireyler din eğitimi ve öğretimi ihtiyaçlarını medrese ve cami kursları aracılığıyla karşılamaktadırlar. Medreselerdeki öğretim programları çağdaş sorunlara cevap verecek nitelikte değildir. Bu programlar genellikle XII.-XV. asırlarda hazırlanmıştır. Medreselerdeki ders programlarında genellikle sosyal bilimler ve eğitim bilimlerine yer verilmemektedir. Medreseler devletten ve vakıflardan düzenli destek almamaktadırlar. Kırgızistan medreselerinde geleneksel medrese kuruluş yapısı ve ders programları konusunda köklü ve düzenli yeniliklere ihtiyaç duyulmaktadır.
