Twelfth Century Literal Bible Commentaries: Comparing Jewish And Christian, Devorah Schoenfeld Dec 2013

Twelfth Century Literal Bible Commentaries: Comparing Jewish And Christian, Devorah Schoenfeld

Theology: Faculty Publications and Other Works

In the twelfth century, both Jewish and Christian Bible commentators began to emphasize literal, or historical, or contextual, approaches to interpreting scripture. These commentators wrote predominantly line‐by‐line commentaries that focused the reader's attention on linguistic questions in the biblical text. There was also a renewed interest in seeing the Bible in its own terms rather than exclusively through the lens of earlier midrashic or patristic commentaries, although those continued to play an important role. These developments happened at the same time for both Christian and Jewish scholars, who were often in conversation with each other about how ...

Medicine As Friendship With God: Anointing The Sick As A Theological Hermeneutic, M. Therese Lysaught Apr 2009

Medicine As Friendship With God: Anointing The Sick As A Theological Hermeneutic, M. Therese Lysaught

Institute of Pastoral Studies: Faculty Publications and Other Works

A theological bioethics needs, first, a theological politics. The thesis of this essay rests on the claim that the contours of a theological politics are found in the nature of sacramental practices. More specifically, a theological politics of medicine is found in the sacramental practice of anointing of the sick. Anointing provides a radically theological hermeneutic—a theologically robust vision for interpreting medicine that, if enacted, can powerfully make real God's work in the world. Such a vision is embodied in one particular twentieth-century exemplar—the organization called Partners In Health (PIH) and its cofounder, Paul Farmer. Farmer and ...


Christian Love, Material Needs, And Dependent Care: A Feminist Critique Of The Debate On Agape And ‘Special Relations', Sandra Sullivan-Dunbar Jan 2009

Christian Love, Material Needs, And Dependent Care: A Feminist Critique Of The Debate On Agape And ‘Special Relations', Sandra Sullivan-Dunbar

Theology: Faculty Publications and Other Works

THE RECENT CONVERSATION WITHIN CHRISTIAN ETHICS ABOUTTHE RELA tionship between universal obligations and particular, intensive relations—be tween agape and "special relations" —largely accepts Gene Outka's formula tion that these are separate and competing moral claims that must be balanced within the Christian moral life. I examine the relationship between agape and special relations through the lens of dependency and dependent-care rela tions. Attention to dependent care and the material needs addressed within them raises questions about the sharp division between universal and partic ular obligations. Drawing on the work of feminist philosopher Eva Feder Kit tay, I argue ...

Genetic Testing's "Soft Underbelly": Christian Vision And Bio-Utopia, M Therese Lysaught Apr 2001

Genetic Testing's "Soft Underbelly": Christian Vision And Bio-Utopia, M Therese Lysaught

Institute of Pastoral Studies: Faculty Publications and Other Works

To distinguish genetic testing's positive aspects from its downsides, we who work in Catholic health care must begin examining these new technologies in the light of our faith tradition. In this article, as a first step in creating such a theological-moral critique, I identify: • four dimensions of genetic testing that belie its benevolent image • Three central Christian beliefs that are useful in assessing or challenging various assumptions and practices associated with genetic testing By bringing the latter to bear on the former, I hope to provide a model for how further theological-moral critique might proceed.
