Petra Carlsson | Tingens mystik

Detta avsnitt är en inspelning från en offentligt föreläsning på CTR, med titeln: "Tingens mystik: Om Foucault, konst och teologisk aktivism" av Petra Carlsson, docent i systematisk teologi, Enskilda Högskolan Stockholm.

I sitt abstract till föreläsningen skriver Carlsson: "Om konsthistoriens teologiska rebeller – de som vägrar tro att det avbildade är verkligare än bilden, att det som är bortom är sannare än det som är här. Och om trans-nunnorna som iklär sig det som förtryckt dem, om punk-bönen i katedralen som förvandlar teologin. För om bilden är lika verklig som det avbildade, då kan verkligheten förvandlas bortom allt förnuft."

Boken som nämns i början av föreläsningen finns att köpa här: Foucault, Art & Radical Theology

Föreläsningen är även kopplad till forskningsprojektet "Öppningar mot det numinösa: Skärningspunkter mellan religion och estetik i det sekulära samhället." Se det tidigare avsnittet "Gränsens erfarenhet..." för mer info.

Oleh Kindiy | Persecution during Soviet Times & Current Revival of Catholic Church(es) in Ukraine

Dr. Oleh Kindiy, Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv recently visited CTR/CES and gave a presentation with the full title: "Experience of Martyrdom and Persecution during Soviet Times and the Current Revival of Catholic Church(es) in Ukraine."

From the abstract to the presentation "The lecture is based on memoirs and eyewitness interviews, documents from state archives, and photographs from private collections depicting the life stories of Greek Catholics in the USSR from 1946 to 1989 when the UGCC was considered officially abolished and forbidden. How does this memory shape the nature and mission of the Catholic Church in Ukraine today?"

This is the second lecture (of seven) in the series "The Many Guises of European Catholicism", that the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies is with support from the Centre for European Studies at Lund University.

Paula Fredriksen | Paul, Augustine, & Krister: On the Introspective Conscience of the West

This episode is one of four, re-podcasting of lectures from honorary doctors of the joint faculties of Humanities and Theology, Lund University. First out is Paula Fredriksen.

Paula Fredriksen is a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She was made Honorary Doctor at the Faculty of Theology as recognition of the high international standard of her research in religious studies. Professor Fredriksen's research is characterised by an explicit inter- and multidisciplinary perspective. Her research is thus linked to several successful subjects at the Faculty of Theology in Lund - New Testament studies, patristics, Jewish studies and general history of religion just to name a few. Her interest in Paul the apostle and Augustine the Church Father is a common thread throughout her research, from her thesis "Augustine’s Early Interpretations of Paul" (1979) and onward. Fredriksen has also written about Jesus as an historical figure and the early Jesus movement as a branch of Judaism at the time and, furthermore, has sought to spread her research results to the general public.

Professor Fredriksen's lecture, entitled "Paul, Augustine, and Krister, on the Introspective Conscience of the West", was recorded at LUX on June 1st, 2017
