Boksläpp: Dionysios Areopagita, Paradoxernas Gud – verk i urval

Översättaren Tord Fornberg och Fredrik Heiding S.J., som har skrivit inledning och sammanfattning, berättar om boken i samtal med Helena Bodin.

Dionysios Areopagitas verk har fått stor betydelse i både öst och väst. Dionysios dialektiska tänkande pendlar mellan ljus och mörker, stillhet och rörelse, enhet och mångfald. I denna bok ges en ny svensk översättning från den grekiska grundtexten av drygt hälften av Dionysios Areopagitas samlade verk (Artos förlag).
Tid: Onsdag den 22 november kl.16-18

International Conference on Theology of Religion

Theology of Religions – Roman Catholic Perspectives
International Conference October 68, 2017 The Newman Institute, University College, Uppsala

”Theology of Religions” is among the most burning issues within Christian theology today. Systematic and fundamental theologians, as well as specialists in non-Christian religions, will study and discuss different ways of handling conflicting truth claims and religious narratives between religions. This international conference, sponsored by the Newman Institute, will draw some of the most prominent Catholic and Protestant experts within the field. The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the present status of ”Theology of Religions” from a Roman Catholic perspective, as well as to further discuss open and controversial issues within this field. The formulation ”Roman Catholic perspective” should not be understood as excluding Protestant voices, nor as indicating a monolithic pre-understanding of the topic. However, even if the issues are common for all theologians focusing on this topic, confessional traditions play an important, though not always articulated, role.
