    • Ethique de l’eau : principes et lignes directrices; Girardin, Benoît; Workshop for Water Ethics (W4W) (, 2019)
      Certains sont d’avis que des perspectives éthiques concernant la gestion de l’eau n’ont aucune importance ou n’apportent aucune valeur ajoutée. Ce texte sur l’éthique de l’eau prétend le contraire ; il convoque les valeurs et les principes éthiques de sorte à influer sur les questions relatives à l’eau et à y apporter des solutions qui améliorent les chances de résultats positifs pour tous les concernés. Les considérations éthiques entrent en jeu, par exemple, dans la manière de gérer l’eau à disposition et sa valeur marchande, comme une question d’éthique économique et d’accès équitable ; les innovations techniques relatives à l’extraction, au traitement ou à l’approvisionnement de l’eau relèvent d’une éthique de l’innovation ; la gestion de conflits relatifs à l’eau est essentielle à l’éthique de la paix ; la régulation et la gestion de l’eau requièrent une éthique politique ; et la manière de traiter des traditions religieuses et des croyances ne peut se faire sans une éthique de la religion. Le texte, élaboré par un groupe international d’experts et approuvé par le conseil de fondation de montre comment les valeurs éthiques peuvent faciliter le traitement de questions et la gestion de conflits relatifs à l’eau d’une manière qui soit efficace, durable et inclusive. De la sorte ce texte se veut une contribution à la mise en œuvre de l’objectif 6 des objectifs de développement durable des Nations unies, visant à garantir l’accès de tous à l’eau et à l’assainissement et assurer une gestion durable des ressources en eau.
    • Resisting exclusion : global theological responses to populism

      Harasta, Eva; Sinn, Simone, - 1975 (Evangelische Verlangsanstalt GmbH, 2019)
      Populist political movements pose serious challenges to churches and theology in many global contexts. Such movements promote marginalization and exclusion of those who are regarded as not belonging to “the people”, and thereby undermine core values – dignity, equality, freedom, justice, and participation of all citizens in decision-making processes. How can theology and the churches respond to these developments? Church leaders and teaching theologians from eighteen different countries offer analyses and examples for how churches take up the challenge to resist exclusion and to strengthen participation and people’s agency.
    • Religious Freedom and the World Council of Churches

      Vischer, Lukas (1926-2008) (PAULIST PRESS, 1966)
      When we compare the Declaration on Religious Freedom of Vatican Council II with the texts produced by the generalassemblies of the World Council of Churches in Amsterdam (1948) and New Delhi (1961), we see that there is a large measure of agreement. Yet the scope of the problem is not identical for all parties concerned. -After World War I many factors in Western Europe shook the assumption that the inhabitants of a given region were themembersof a given Church. The missionary movement and the gradual emergence of “young Churches” prepared the way for a new and deeper understanding of the nature of the Church. During the rule of Nazism in Germany the “Confessing Church” was an attempt to preserve the Church’s freedom within a Church and a State that were menaced by a false ideology or had already yielded to it. –In 1937, the Oxford Conference dealt with the nature of those freedoms which the Church could claim from the State. Thisdiscussion expandedin the course of time. The Churches could hardly claim freedom for themselves without likewise claiming it for others. Finally, religious freedomwas considered an essential condition for international organizationslike the World Council of Churches.The ecumenical movement had beeninaugurated to precipitate dialogue andto work together as a community. TheOxford Conference called upon the Churches “to guard against the sin of themselves conniving at repression of Churches and religious bodies of a faith and order differing from their own”. It regarded mutual respect as an opportunity for Christian witness, since it is by setting an example of tolerance that the Churches actually promote international understanding. The conferenceheld the view that aChurch which tries to attract the members of another Church by non-spiritual means (proselytism) makes it impossible for the Churches to live together. Their communion in Christ imposes upon the Churches a positive responsibility for each other. -Vatican Council II barely treated this aspect of religious freedom.One question has yet tobe discussedin the ecumenical movement: How far is the Church itself a community based on freedom? Where must we draw the line between a plurality that strengthens the witness to Christ and a plurality that destroys it?If the Churches are expected to set “an example of freedom to all”, as the Oxford Conference put it, this question is of decisive importance. The Churches should formulate their convictions in common. There is no need to stress the value of such a witness in a world whose order is imperilled by a false absolutismandundermined by indifference toward the truth as the source of life, respectively.
    • Architectural styles and identities in Hong Kong: The Chinese and Western designs for St Teresa’s Church in Kowloon Tong, 1928–32

      Coomans, Thomas; Ho, Puay-peng (2018)
      In 1928, the Dutch monk-artist Fr Adelbert Gresnigt was asked to make sketches for the new parish church of St Teresa’s in Kowloon Tong, which would become the Catholic monument of the new urban developments of the British colony. He sketched a Chinese-style church and a Western style one. The former was promoted by Mgr Celso Costantini in the context of the sinicisation of the Catholic Church in China, but the latter was finally chosen by the Portuguese parishioners and benefactors, who were not concerned with Catholic inculturation. At the crossing of Prince Edward Road and Waterloo Road, they preferred to see a tower like St Mark’s Campanile of Venice rather than a Chinese pagoda. The article contextualises St Teresa’s church in the ‘Catholic cluster’ of Kowloon Tong in the 1930s, where Italian, French and American missionaries built schools, residences and a hospital in different styles that expressed their national identities. Furthermore, the article sheds new light on the authorship of St Teresa’s plans and on the role of the Belgian company Crédit Foncier d’Extrême-Orient and architect Gabriel Van Wylick in the real estate investments of Catholic missionary societies.
    • Etika Kristen Dan Teknologi Informasi: Sebuah Tinjauan Menurut Perspektif Alkitab

      Alinurdin, David (Sekolah Tinggi Teologi SAAT, 2018-12-01)
      The number of regular internet users in the country of Indonesia should not be underestimated. At the year of 2018 it was noted that Indonesia was ranked fourth in the world in the length of time spent on the internet in a day; a total of 8 hours 51 minutes. The rise of internet use in Indonesia is not undergirded by a good quality connection in utilizing this form of information technology. The use of the Internet in Indonesia, the majority of which is used for social media and lifestyle, is also overshadowed by alarming crime and abuse rates. Keeping these observations in mind, this paper will highlight the values that influence the mindset, attitudes and behavior of internet users from the standpoint of Christian ethics, namely in terms of authenticity of relations, information processing, truth authority, and user identity and integrity.
    • Suppression and restoration of the Society of Jesus in China

      Mateos, Fernando (Macau Ricci Institute, 2014)
      Fr. Mateos' s thirty-two pages well documented paper is based on Jesuit correspondence and original documents and depicts three main climax periods of the Jesuit exile in China; suppression of the Society, tribulation of its former members and then their final incorporation into the New Society. The paper gives overview of the Jesuits geographical dispersion and activities in various locations in China; it also stresses the crucial role of superiors and their decisions, their sorrows and afflictions especially manifested by Fathers; François Bourgeois, Superior of the French Jesuits and by Jean Amiot, an astronomer and writer. In 1778, Fr. Louis de Poirot, one from five ex-Jesuits who survived in Peking wrote several letters to the Congregation of Propaganda requesting the re-establishment of the Society of Jesus in China. In the end, the 78-year-old de Poirot remained in Peking alone, and peacefully passed away on December 13, 1813, eight months before the solemn publication of Pius VII’s Bull, “Sollicitudo Omnium Ecclesiarum”, restoring the Society of Jesus in the whole world. Here comes account of the revival of the Jesuit presence in China, its circumstances, challenges and opportunities opened to the Chinese mission in the New Society.
    • Menalar dilema etis dalam film Silence

      Aruan, Abel K. (2018)
      Silence was a provocative film, particularly for Christians viewers. Aside from sketching stories of great interest concerning challenges endured by Jesuit missionaries to Japan, the film presents a deep ethical struggle one finds worthy of careful analysis. In the most climactic scene, the missionary Rodrigues faces an ethical dilemma. He must desecrate fumi-e, a bronze board depicting Christ Jesus, in an act of apostasy to save five tortured and dying hostages. Rodrigues must choose: apostasy or allowing people to die. In this article, the author attempts to reason through Rodrigues' ethical dilemma, without providing conclusive arguments in support of any ethical choices the author might prefer, to broaden the thinking of his readers. Following preliminary considerations for how to define the category of ethical dilemma, the author provides two key questions for evaluating solutions belonging to the moral agent. (α) Concerning competing moral demands, which one is highest in standing amid the rest? (β) Concerning available interventions by the moral agent, which action most effectively realizes the highest moral demand? These two lines of inquiry frame three proposed solutions. Finally, the author also proposes a fourth solution termed Kierkegaardian conflict, following the philosopher of ethics Phillip L. Quinn, whose own proposal, too, remains inconclusive for resolving the dilemma.
    • Bait suci: kemegahan versus penderitaan : sebuah tafsir ulang atas pembangunan bait suci Salomo menurut 1 Raja-raja 5:1-1

      Samosir, Agustina Raplina (2018)
      Construction for Solomon's Temple entailed forced labor. This is evinced, first, by several terms connoting forced labor, such as mas, sēbel, and ‘ebed, which are used in the text to describe the Temple project. Widely attested during the reigns of David and Solomon, terms such as these denote just how royal projects were carried out. A second piece of evidence concerns the outbreak of civil unrest during Solomon's day over the issue of forced labor in Israel. As such, the Temple's very construction bears enormous human cost, just as the splendor of that Temple is directly proportionate to the suffering of both denizens and working class. Here the author analyzes the Temple-construction process of Solomon's era, showcasing one example of the “human pyramid” that demands consideration amid a proliferation of interpretative work to be done in the present time.
