Monotheism And Tolerance: Recovering A Religion Of Reason, Robert Erlewine Dec 2009

Monotheism And Tolerance: Recovering A Religion Of Reason, Robert Erlewine

Robert Erlewine

Why are religious tolerance and pluralism so difficult to achieve? Why is the often violent fundamentalist backlash against them so potent? Robert Erlewine looks to a new religion of reason for answers to these questions. Drawing on Enlightenment writers Moses Mendelssohn, Immanuel Kant, and Hermann Cohen, who placed Christianity and Judaism in tension with tolerance and pluralism, Erlewine finds a way to break the impasse, soften hostilities, and establish equal relationships with the Other. Erlewine's recovery of a religion of reason stands in contrast both to secularist critics of religion who reject religion for the sake of reason and ...

Out Of India: Immigrant Hindus And South Asian Hinduism In The United States, Chad M. Bauman, Jennifer Saunders

Chad M. Bauman

The article provides a survey of research on immigrant Hindus and South Asian Hinduism in the United States, focusing in particular on certain trends in the development of American Hinduism (e.g., Americanization, protestantization, ecumenization, congregationalization, homogenization, ritual adaptation) and prominent themes in more recent scholarship on the topic (e.g., race, transnational connections, and Hindu nationalism).

Global Human Thriving: A Christian Perspective, Christoffer H. Grundmann Dec 2009

Global Human Thriving: A Christian Perspective, Christoffer H. Grundmann

Theology Faculty Presentations

(excerpt) "Talking about global human thriving from a decidedly religious point of view requires interpreting a particular religious tradition in light of today’s ubiquitous ecological, economic, and political challenges. One cannot any longer stay content with a monologic explanation of happenings based on an authoritarian, unilateral interpretation of holy writ and the wisdom of old, at least not according to the Christian perception of life and human responsibility, because global issues like climate change, water scarcity, and nuclear overkill—to mention only a few—indiscriminately threaten the continuation of all of life as known so far. These issues compel ...

Unity, Charity, And Fraternity: Father Michael Mcgivney And The Knights Of Columbus, Kathleen A. Bruno Dec 2009

Unity, Charity, And Fraternity: Father Michael Mcgivney And The Knights Of Columbus, Kathleen A. Bruno

Pell Scholars and Senior Theses

My thesis discusses the reasons for the creation of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization, in 1881. I discuss why Father Michael McGivney, a Catholic priest in New Haven, Connecticut, believed that the organization was necessary to prevent Catholic men from joining the "secret societies" of the nineteenth century. I also explain the present-day Knights of Columbus and how McGivney's vision is carried out today through the Order.

Scattering Flowers, Eileen Admo James Cotter

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"One of the most important missions we have as parents is to instill in our children those values that we view as critical to living a successful life. Although the early parent-child years are filled with countless, explicit small lessons and recommendations, it is our unspoken values that teach the most during that time. Children are very keen observers and can see through (and often make their best attempt to ignore) our verbal recommendations, especially if they do not align with our non-verbal actions. For example, teaching children ...

"Walking out of the tunnels of Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium, even after the roaring crowds had departed in compressed streams of red taillights, was the best part of the evening, John Angelina had decided early in the baseball season. Especially now that the Orioles were headed for a pennant and possibly the World Series, the line of groupies would wait for the pitchers. Not that the other players or positions were any less attractive, it was just something about the pitchers. Particularly that battery of pitchers that year ...


Developing One's Character: An Aristotelian Defense Of Sportsmanship, Tim Madigan Dec 2009

Developing One's Character: An Aristotelian Defense Of Sportsmanship, Tim Madigan

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"While he lived long ago, the ethical writings of the Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) still have relevance to the present day, particularly when we try to understand the meaning of the term “sportsmanship.” For Aristotle, the purpose of ethical training was to help human beings achieve personal excellence, what he called “eudaimonia” or “self-fulfillment.” Since we are by nature social animals, such fulfillment can only occur within a communal setting. One judges an individual by the way in which that individual excels, and one judges ...

"When I started the transfer process to enter St. John Fisher College, I had intended to be an English major. After seeing an article about the internship program through the Religious Studies department, I sought out Fr. Costanzo to ask about that opportunity. Less than a week later I entered Fisher as a Religious Studies major. That internship program directly resulted in my current position as Ministry Staff Assistant at my parish. My job encompasses many areas, not the least of which is secretarial in nature; however, the ...


Truth About Wicca, Emily Heiden Dec 2009

Truth About Wicca, Emily Heiden

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Wicca. A five letter word that is many of a time mistaken for another five letter word; witch. Yet in present definitions the two are far from interchangeable. Wicca is a religious practice that is slowly being recognized in the United States and other areas around the world. It’s not a form of association with the devil, nor do Wiccans even believe in the devil. In truth Wicca is more about nature and the beauty of nature than anything else."

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"It has been two academic years since I graduated with a B.A.in English and Religious Studies. I found college a great experience, but as it came to a close I was itching to get out of the classroom and begin a fulfilling career. I was of the impression that, just as diplomas are distributed upon graduation, employers would automatically provide studious and hard-working graduates stellar jobs. I felt entitled to such a position. After all, I worked hard for four years, was involved in clubs and ...

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

“If I can teach a woman whose brain has been fried by 25 years on drugs to knit, I can certainly teach you.” With those words to bolster my courage, I began my first knitting lesson. I hadn’t really planned to learn to knit or crochet, but the women at my church were starting a shawl ministry and I liked all the women in the group, and thus had to learn how to knit to be a member of this start-up. My instructor was an elderly woman ...
