Never Mind Grendel! Can Beowulf Conquer The 21st-Century Guilt Trip?, Stephen Asma Dec 2007

Never Mind Grendel! Can Beowulf Conquer The 21st-Century Guilt Trip?, Stephen Asma

Stephen T Asma

The writer casts doubt on whether the emasculated Beowulf put forward by J. R. R. Tolkien and in the recent movie version of the story transcends and nullifies the heroic original. He suggests that both Beowulfs may be necessary.

The Ur-Quiver In The Pro-Stiff Upper Lip: Secrecy And Reserve From Keble To Clough, Patrick Scott Nov 2007

The Ur-Quiver In The Pro-Stiff Upper Lip: Secrecy And Reserve From Keble To Clough, Patrick Scott

Patrick Scott

A paper for the Victorian Institute, 2007, where the theme was Victorian Secrets. Discusses the Tractarian doctrine of reserve in Isaac Williams and John Keble, and the non-reserve of R.H. Froude and F.W. Faber, and then considers the influence of the idea in Tennyson, Arnold, and Clough, concluding that far from the Tractarian doctrine of reserve being specifically Tractarian, ... reserve, concealment, the principled rejection of promiscuous self-expression, is a widespread phenomenon in Victorian culture because of cognitive or epistemological self-consciousness...  The Tractarians, pompous, prickly, self-important, self-deluding, snobbish, ... nonetheless were onto something significant for their age, for many who ...

Fanning The Flames: Religious Media Consumption And American Politics, Brian Newman, Mark Smith Oct 2007

Fanning The Flames: Religious Media Consumption And American Politics, Brian Newman, Mark Smith

Brian Newman

Both religion and mass media are politically important in the United States. However, little is known about the political role of religious media. Religious media might be politically influential because they help translate religion into political thinking and because their consumers are likely to internalize the political cues these media provide. We find that almost a quarter of the public claims to have relied on religious media when making voting decisions in 2000. Religious media users felt significantly closer to George W. Bush and Pat Buchanan and farther away from Al Gore and were more likely to vote for Bush ...

Imagining Cannibals: European Encounters With Native Brazilian Women, Carole A. Myscofski Oct 2007

Imagining Cannibals: European Encounters With Native Brazilian Women, Carole A. Myscofski

Carole Myscofski

In his “Introduction” to Imagining Religion, Jonathan Z. Smith contends that second-order reflection on religion—imagining religion per se—is a relatively recent human endeavor.1 It is one, of course, that has engaged our
group of essayists—indeed, as our life’s work and preoccupation. It is also the issue at stake in this essay: how human behaviors and groups are distinguished and labeled.

Hearts Go Walking: Conversations Between Poetry, Prayer And Theology, Vaughan S. Roberts Sep 2007

Hearts Go Walking: Conversations Between Poetry, Prayer And Theology, Vaughan S. Roberts

Vaughan S Roberts

There are many potential connections between poetry, prayer and theology. This presentation briefly explores each subject in turn before looking at how they might converse with each other through various poems under the headings of: (a) prayer in the world; (b) prayer as lover; (c) prayer as apophatic encounter; and (d) prayer as divine meeting.


Moving Towards Faith: A Phenomenological Inquiry Into Spirituality In Adult Education , Frederick Milacci Sep 2007

Moving Towards Faith: A Phenomenological Inquiry Into Spirituality In Adult Education , Frederick Milacci

Fred Milacci

This study examined how eight adult education practitioners understand spirituality. The investigation defined and grounded the notion of spirituality within a specific religious/theological tradition, Christianity broadly defined. Data were collected via informal, conversational, taped interviews, and several themes emerged. The study used these results to interrogate the discourse of spirituality and found several serious problems including: the nondefinition and misuse by the discourse of the term spirituality, the hazards of individualized spirituality caused by imprecise definitions of the term, a failure to address the issues of faith substantively, and the separation in the discourse of religion from spirituality. The ...


Religious Imagery And The American Association For Adult Education: The Gospel Of The Aaae, Frederick Milacci Sep 2007

Religious Imagery And The American Association For Adult Education: The Gospel Of The Aaae, Frederick Milacci

Fred Milacci

Using the findings from an analysis of articles appearing in the Journal of Adult Education, this paper shows how early adult educators used religious imagery to express their fervor and enthusiasm for the field of adult education. This religious-like sense of mission and purpose among early leaders in the field was grounded in the belief that adult education could bring hope and help to a troubled world and provides a refreshing alternative to the present-day push towards professionalization.

The Apostle Table - Part Ii - Competent (Pressures: Response) Intransitivity, David Randall Jenkins Sep 2007

The Apostle Table - Part Ii - Competent (Pressures: Response) Intransitivity, David Randall Jenkins

David Randall Jenkins

The Apostle Table illustrates a New Testament encryption scheme revealed in the Book of Matthew. Specifically, the list of the twelve apostles in Matthew, 10:1-4, points to the Matthew, Chapters 8 and 9, disciple characterizations. The disciples metaphorically characterize the social choice theory aspect of the scripture writers' (ordered relations theory: social choice theory: welfare model) regression. The paper is written in two parts: I. The Exogenous Pressures; and, II. The Endogenous Response. Interestingly, the paper explains why the crucified Jesus could not get off the cross.

How To Survive The Apocalypse, Stephen Asma Aug 2007

How To Survive The Apocalypse, Stephen Asma

Stephen T Asma

The article presents a guide on how people with skepticism and critical thinking can survive the Rapture and Armageddon. According to the Book of Revelations, the Lord will return to the earth to separate the good and the bad. When the Great Tribulation comes, people have no more time for repentance. The impostor strategy is one way to avoid the Tribulation.

From Sweet Potatoes To God Almighty: Roy Rappaport On Being A Hedgehog, Brian A. Hoey, Thomas E. Fricke Jul 2007

From Sweet Potatoes To God Almighty: Roy Rappaport On Being A Hedgehog, Brian A. Hoey, Thomas E. Fricke

Brian A. Hoey, Ph.D.

Recognized as a principal figure in ecological anthropology, Roy Rappaport is best known for his studyPigs for the Ancestors(1968). His work in the anthropology of religion has received less attention. Least acknowledged is Rappaport’s role in defining an “engaged” anthropology. Drawn from interviews Tom Fricke conducted with Rappaport in the year before his death in October 1997, this article gives insight into these three facets of his professional life. Beginning with an account of Rappaport’s fieldwork with the Tsembaga Maring, the discussion takes up his core themes, ideas that evolved out of his early field experience and ...

Gathered For The Journey: Moral Theology In Catholic Perspective, M. Lysaught, David Mccarthy Jun 2007

Gathered For The Journey: Moral Theology In Catholic Perspective, M. Lysaught, David Mccarthy

M. Therese Lysaught

Gathered for the Journey sets moral reasoning in a theological context of worship and discipleship (part 1), provides a framework for the moral life based on questions of human fulfillment (part 2), and demonstrates how these theological resources shape a distinctive approach to questions of globalization, Catholic social teaching, the family, war and peace, bioethics, and the environment (part 3). McCarthy and Lysaught have crafted a distinctively unified collection. Gathered for the Journey represents a common project among Catholic scholars who are struggling with similar questions about living faithfully.
