From Just War To Just Intervention, Susan J. Atwood Sep 2003

From Just War To Just Intervention, Susan J. Atwood

New England Journal of Public Policy

What is Just War? What is Just Intervention? This paper examines the evolution of the criteria for Just War from its origins in the early Christian church to the twenty-first century. The end of the Cold War era has expanded the discussion to include grounds for intervention. Indeed, in the 1990s, a number of multilateral interventions took place on humanitarian grounds. But the debate is ongoing about whether the criteria applied in the Just War theory — proper authority, just cause, and right intent — remain valid in an era of Just Intervention. The author examines as case studies some multilateral interventions ...

Patience And/Or Politics: Augustine And The Crisis At Calama, 408-409, Peter Iver Kaufman Feb 2003

Patience And/Or Politics: Augustine And The Crisis At Calama, 408-409, Peter Iver Kaufman

Jepson School of Leadership Studies articles, book chapters and other publications

Few scholars would quarrel with Ernst Dassman's observation that early Christian "reserve" toward the political cultures of antiquity--a mixture of difference and indifference, which only occasionally gave way to hostility--turned Christians' outcast status into something of a virtue.Still fewer are likely to dispute the assertion that influential fourth-century Christians unreservedly welcomed the changes that came with Constantine and anticipated the "Christianization" of imperial, if not also local, politics. But evaluations of Augustine's enthusiasm later that century and early the next never fail now to elicit disagreement


“We Are Satisfied!” - A Sermon For The Commemoration Of St Philip, Craig Satterlee Jan 2003

“We Are Satisfied!” - A Sermon For The Commemoration Of St Philip, Craig Satterlee

Institute of Liturgical Studies Occasional Papers

(excerpt) Each time that I gather around this table in preparation to leave this Liturgical Institute, I feel the way I imagine Philip felt at that other table, when Jesus prepared to leave the disciples to return to God. After these days of inspiring addresses, stimulating conversations, cherished comradery, and glorious worship, like Philip, I want to squeeze out just a little more before everything comes to an end. Give me just one more conversation with someone who understands what paschal mystery means. Just once more let me join my voice with people unafraid to sing a new hymn. Just ...


Orthodoxy And Allusions In "A Good Man Is Hard To Find", Conley Greer Jan 2003

Orthodoxy And Allusions In "A Good Man Is Hard To Find", Conley Greer

The Corinthian

The confrontation between the grandmother and the Misfit may provide the moment of grace, but the Biblical allusions throughout the story certainly merit just as much analysis. Flannery O'Connor uses scriptural allusions throughout "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" to invoke her orthodox critique of a society seething with nominal Christians not fulfilling the requirements of the Bible. By examining these allusions, O'Connor's message becomes much clearer.
