Unterrichtsentwurf aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Theologie - Religion als Schulfach, Note: 3,0, Friedrich-Alexander-Universitat Erlangen-Nurnberg, Veranstaltung: HS Fachdidaktik 1, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die von mir zu entwerfende Doppelstunde beschaftigt sich mit dem Glauben an Gott als Schopfer und den Menschen als das Ebenbild Gottes im Rahmen des Lehrplanthemas 11.2 Wer bin ich'." Dieser Glaube ist vom christlichen Glauben untrennbar und fur das Verstandnis der christlichen Grundlagen notwendig. Ausserdem spielt sie eine grosse Rolle bei dem Selbstverstandnis des Menschen und seiner Existenz. Deswegen ist seine Behandlung im Unterricht von Bedeutung. Die Lehrkraft sollte vor dem Unterricht diesen Glauben reflektieren und einen eigenen Standpunkt finden, um authentisch zu bleiben. Es muss berucksichtigt werden, dass nicht jeder diesen Glauben teilt. Daher ergibt sich die Schwierigkeit dieses Unterrichtsentwurfs in dem Bestreben, den Schulern den Glauben an die Schopfung darzustellen ohne zu indoktrinieren. Der eigene Glaube darf naturlich zur Sprache kommen, die eigene Meinung der Schuler muss aber jederzeit respektiert werden und sollte im Unterricht eine wichtige Rolle spielen. Dies ist die Herausforderung, die sich mir personlich stellt."

Aysha Hidayatullah presents the first comprehensive analysis of contemporary feminist interpretations of the Qur'an. Synthesizing prominent feminist readings of the Qur'an in the United States since the late twentieth century, she provides an essential introduction to this nascent field of Qur'anic scholarship and engages in a deep investigation-as well as a radical critique-of its methods and approaches. With a particular focus on feminist "impasses" in the Qur'anic text, she argues that many feminist interpretations rely on claims about feminist justice that are not fully supported by the text, and she proposes a major revision to their exegetical foundations. A provocative work of Muslim feminist theology, Feminist Edges of the Qur'an is a vital intervention in urgent conversations about women and the Qur'an.

What kind of literature is the Talmud? To answer this question, Daniel Boyarin looks to an unlikely source: the dialogues of Plato. In these ancient texts he finds similarities, both in their combination of various genres and topics and in their dialogic structure. But Boyarin goes beyond these structural similarities, arguing also for a cultural relationship. In Socrates and the Fat Rabbis, Boyarin suggests that both the Platonic and the talmudic dialogues are not dialogic at all. Using Michael Bakhtin’s notion of represented dialogue and real dialogism, Boyarin demonstrates, through multiple close readings, that the give-and-take in these texts is actually much closer to a monologue in spirit. At the same time, he shows that there is a dialogism in both texts on a deeper structural level between a voice of philosophical or religious dead seriousness and a voice from within that mocks that very high solemnity at the same time. Boyarin ultimately singles out Menippean satire as the most important genre through which to understand both the Talmud and Plato, emphasizing their seriocomic peculiarity. An innovative advancement in rabbinic studies, as well as a bold and controversial new way of reading Plato, Socrates and the Fat Rabbis makes a major contribution to scholarship on thought and culture of the ancient Mediterranean.

The religious transformations that marked late antiquity represent an enigma that has challenged some of the West's greatest thinkers. But, according to Guy Stroumsa, the oppositions between paganism and Christianity that characterize prevailing theories have endured for too long. Instead of describing this epochal change as an evolution within the Greco - Roman world from polytheism to monotheism, he argues that the cause for this shift can be found not so much around the Mediterranean as in the Near East. The End of Sacrifice points to the role of Judaism, particularly its inventions of new religious life following the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. The end of animal sacrifice gave rise to new forms of worship, with a concern for personal salvation, scriptural study, rituals like praying and fasting, and the rise of religious communities and monasticism. It is what Christianity learned from Judaism about texts, death, and, above all, sacrifice that allowed it to supersede Greco - Roman religions and, Stroumsa argues, transform religion itself. A concise and original approach to a much - studied moment in religious history, The End of Sacrifice will be heralded by all scholars of late antiquity.

Drawing on the methodology of collective memory this dissertation analyses representations of the Holocaust and Jews in three German Protestant theological texts (Rheinischer Synodalbeschluss 1980, F.-W. Marquardt's Von Elend und Heimsuchung der Theologie and B. Jungst's Auf der Seite des Todes das Leben). The analysis of these texts is informed by the development of narratives of collective memory of the Holocaust in German society in the 1980s and 1990s (the miniseries Holocaust and Heimat, the Bitburg Controversy, the Historikerstreit and the Goldhagen Controversy) and by the study of generational transmission of Holocaust memory in the third generation of non-Jewish Germans. In particular, the paradigms generated by Christian reflection on the Holocaust and Jews and their consequences for current Christian-Jewish relations in Germany are addressed. The theological narrative of this study becomes increasingly complex through the inclusion of social and generational issues of Holocaust remembrance in Germany. Dr. K. Hannah Holtschneider, geb. 1971, Junior Research Fellow am Centre for Jewish-Christian Relations in Cambridge, UK. 1991 - 95 Theologiestudium in Wuppertal, Bochum und Dublin, 1995 - 96 Jewish Studies in Oxford, 1996 - 2000 Promotion in Birmingham.

The characteristic feature of the Christian moral life remains the very person of Jesus Christ. As the Eternal Word of the Father, Christ supplies the universal, personal, and concrete norm for all moral comportment. When human action flows from the agent's union with Christ, human freedom meets up with its own graced source of energy. From the moment that a human creature encounters the triune God, the creature discovers who he is: For when God chooses a person to share in the blessed communion of his own life, the individual achieves a quality of personal being that only God can bestow. The more authentic our relationship with the Persons of the blessed Trinity becomes, the more the divine life takes hold of us and, through the virtues, shapes our daily actions. This new book treats the virtues of the Christian life from a Trinitarian perspective. The chapters pursue a common theme: To show believers how they can decide what is morally good and, by embracing the moral good, grow to the full statue of Christ's own loving kindness. To achieve this aim, the text treats in an innovative and fresh manner both the theological virtues, faith, hope, and charity, as well as the cardinal moral virtues, prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. The author also reflects on allied questions of moral theology and so provides a significant commentary on the third part of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

From the first centuries of Islam to well into the Middle Ages, Jews and Christians produced hundreds of manuscripts containing portions of the Bible in Arabic. Until recently, however, these translations remained largely neglected by Biblical scholars and historians. In telling the story of the Bible in Arabic, this book casts light on a crucial transition in the cultural and religious life of Jews and Christians in Arabic-speaking lands. In pre-Islamic times, Jewish and Christian scriptures circulated orally in the Arabic-speaking milieu. After the rise of Islam--and the Qur'an's appearance as a scripture in its own right--Jews and Christians translated the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament into Arabic for their own use and as a response to the Qur'an's retelling of Biblical narratives. From the ninth century onward, a steady stream of Jewish and Christian translations of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament crossed communal borders to influence the Islamic world. The Bible in Arabic offers a new frame of reference for the pivotal place of Arabic Bible translations in the religious and cultural interactions between Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Some images inside the book are unavailable due to digital copyright restrictions.

The "Word of God" emerged and evolved as a divine response to changing human needs in biblical history. By tracing the historical trajectories of six paradigms of salvation, including exodus, kingship, and sacrifice, through a millennium of biblical history, this volume reveals a vibrant current of meaning underlying the texts and expresses growing insight into God's redemptive intentions, which can be extended to the present predicaments of humankind. Klaus Nrnberger is professor emeritus of systematic theology and theological ethics at the University of Natal in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

Dreaming the Land: Theologies of Resistance and Hope is a theme that testifies to the contextual nature of practical theology. This present volume contains a collection of essays with international contributions to practical theology. In their original form, these essays were presented at the seventh biennial conference of the International Academy of Practical Theology (IAPT) held at Brisbane/Australia in June 2005. The dreaming and the land are both concepts central to the thinking of the aboriginal peoples of Australia. The dreaming encompasses the creative and life-giving forces which govern and express the lifeworld of these same people, while the land is sacred space where the spirits of the ancestors of all human, plant, and animal life are represented. The theme is the common thread in the first part of the book. Here, the search for theologies of resistance and hope is related to experiences in the southern hemisphere, to issues of the land as a concept for practical theology, and to questions of human rights. Hans-Georg Ziebertz is professor at the University of Wuerzburg (Germany). Friedrich Schweitzer is professor at the University of Tubingen (Germany).

The concept of a preferential option for the poor calls for a special attention to the weakest members of a particular society. Such an option is a challenge for the ethics of science as well. How can we pursue an "option for the poor" in the humanities? Can we do that without generating "ideologies"? This volume gives an account of these questions. Representatives of sociology, religious studies, law, economics, theology, history and philosophy try to answer this question. It is manifest that the discussion of an option for the poor is also a matter of intellectual integrity.

Research into the field of religious leadership in relation to Christian identity is highly complex. What is meant by religious leadership? What do we really mean if we talk about Christian identity? And most of all, what is the implied relationship between religious leadership and Christian identity? Is there a necessary substantial relation between both? If so, how has leadership contributed in the past to Christian identity and how will it in the contemporary context stimulate a Christian identity? This book explores and addresses such questions. Doris Nauer teaches theology at the University of Tbingen, Germany. Rein Nauta is professor of psychology of religion at the Tilburg University, The Netherlands. Henk Witte teaches theology at the Tilburg University, The Netherlands.
