    Heimdallr in Hyndlu­ljóð: The role and function of the ‘enigmatic god’ in an enigmatic poem2017In: Therizing Old Norse myth / [ed] Stefan Brink, Lisa Collinson, Turnhout: Brepols, 2017, p. 88-103Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study will exemplify the relevance of a philological approach to the study of myth through a text-based examination of the role and function of the enigmatic god Heimdallr in a no less enigmatic source, the Eddic poem Hyndluljóð. Since this text is text imbued with genealogical content, the analysis will employ emic conceptual models concerning affnity and descent in order to shed light on its meaning. I shall first try to establish the status of Hyndluljóð as source material; next, provide an analysis of its main theme; and finally, turn to the question of Heimdallr’s role in the text

    Myten om Þórs fisketur2010In: Chaos: skandinavisk tidsskrift for religionshistoriske studier, ISSN 0108-4453, E-ISSN 1901-9106, Vol. 54, no 2, p. 43-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The well-known Old Norse narrative about how the god Þórr fishes the “Serpent of Middle Earth” out of the depths of the waters was obviously widely spread in pre-Christian and early Christian times. The sources in which this narrative is preserved reach from Gosforth in the west to Altuna in the east and span over at least three centuries. The narrative therefore raises interesting questions about continuity, reception, adaptation, and interpretation. This article tries to address these questions through a survey of the forms of the narrative as preserved in the extant sources.

    Towards an Islamic Discourse of Uncertainty and Doubt2002In: International Institute for the Study of Islam in the Modern World (ISIM) Newsletter, no 10, p. 22-22Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary Islam is witnessing the advent of new critical discourses from within its own modes of articulation. It confronts a new epistemic and interpretative situation, which is generally felt as something of an emergency. This emergency in epistemology and hermeneutics is largely the result of a radical shift of the categories of modern philosophy, science, culture and geography. Given the fact that the exploratory elaboration of law for centuries has been the dominant mode of self-expression in Islam, one of the key themes of contemporary Shici thought is the search for a legal identity. The current debate on the sharica (divine law) in Iran underscores the continued significance of this exploration. In the debate, the radical post-modernist Abdolkarim Soroush contests the epistemic certainty of eternal knowledge, so common among modernists.

    Religionkonflikter inom skolans värld: En studie om skildringen av antisemitism respektive islamofobi i svenska läroböcker i religionskunskap mellan åren 1968 och 20142016Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden today is a quite multicultural country with people from all over the world. A large part of the population is descended from the Middle East, from where culture and religion can be foreign to us Swedes. Due to lack of knowledge regarding these religions stereotypical images can easily arise which can lead to fear or even hatred for the alien religion or the people belonging to the foreign religion.

       This paper aims to investigate how Swedish school books of the subject religion depict the phenomena of Islam phobia and anti-Semitism in their work over the past 40 years. This paper also intends to examine the similarities and differences in the depiction. My main question of this paper is "How is anti-Semitism and Islam phobia depicted in the school books?" Method used for this study is a content analysis. Content analysis is a form of text analysis that is used to describe characteristics of the messages embedded in texts.

        The terms anti-Semitism and Islam phobia origin portrayed both as consequences of historical reference that led to negative attitude against the specific religion and this, in turn, can lead to racism and discrimination.

    Jungfruns andra natur: Magna Mater, Moder Natur och Mamma Maggan: En religionshistorisk studie med inslag av religionspsykologi om Maria och hennes alter Marior i ´feministisk generationsklyfta´2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Virgin´s Other Nature: Magna Mater, Mother Nature and Mother Maggan is a religious historical study of Mary and her alter Mary’s. The empirical material is the debate called "feminist generational division" (2009-2017) that followed the exhibition, Mary - the dream of the woman at the Historical Museum in Stockholm 2008. The purpose of this study is to examine through hermeneutic method why and how Mary was portrayed as an immanent and/or transcendent figure and whether the debaters considers Mary as relevant or not for women today. The study shows that there were other fundamental divisions beside a modern feminist crisis of “sister struggle” between essentialist and constructivist feminism. Analyzing through the theories of holy and profane, dualism and dialog Mary represented women's place in cosmos. The degree of relevance had connection with the view of Mays maternity as women’s either strength or weakness, while the Annunciation represented the sexuality in relation to the immanent and transcendent language.

    Den "farliga" muslimen: En diskursanalytisk undersökning om Sverigedemokraternas föreställningsvärld2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the Swedish Democrats relationship to an islamophobic worldview. The party developed from the racist party Bevara Sverige Svenskt (Keep Sweden Swedish) and is today the third largest party in Sweden, which gives them a powerful position in the society. It is therefore important to investigate their view on minorities, and in this case Muslims. In this thesis I examine the Swedish Democrat’s material during the election campaign the years of 2006, 2010 and 2014 using Ernesto Laclau’s and Chantal Mouffe’s discourse theory. This theory makes it possible to examine implicit and explicit relationships an islamophobic worldview and provides the tools to relate it to a greater context. The research questions of this thesis are how the Swedish Democrats fixate the meaning of the words Muslim, Swedish and culture, as well as how the election material differs between the years. The conclusions suggests that the Swedish Democrats produce a islamophobic worldview by picturing Muslims as a monolithic mass and articulate an antagonism between West and East, we and the Other. The islamophobic worldview produced by the Swedish Democrats is not only a Swedish phenomenon but also a part of a Western islamophobia industry, which is common to Radical Right-wing parties in Europe.

    Falun Gong i religionshistorisk kontext2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Qigong was initiated by the Chinese government in the 1950´s as a domestic medical tradition to be included within a modern scientific framework. During the first decades it became popular among the élite. During the 70´s and 80´s scientific confirmation of the existence of qi contributed to its immense popularity among the population. Charismatic leaders with a traditional background were leading their groups in parks and the movement was booming. In 1992 Falun Gong was established by Li Hongzhi as qigong taken to a higher level. Its popularity increased and Li was associated with buddha as well as the daoist messiah Li Hong. After manifestations and demonstrations Falun Gong was banned in China as a religious sect, potentially threatening to society. This reaction of the Chinese government as well as the popularity of the movement can be understood within its context of Chinese history of religion as a particular strand of traditional religion and folk sectarianism, often referred to as White Lotus, influenced by ancient Chinese traditions and Daoism as well as Buddhism and Manichaeism.

    Other Voices: A Study of Christian Feminist Approaches to Religious Plurality East and West2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation explores the contribution of feminist theology and feminist dialogue praxis to interfaith dialogue and theology of religions. Feminist dialogue praxis is studied through interviews and documentation from women’s interfaith projects; and feminist approaches to religious plurality through the works of a number of Christian feminist theologians, with special attention to Asian theologians, who in their theologizing consciously make use of their multireligious context.

    Just as feminist theology is a critical and a constructive project, so are feminist approaches to religious plurality. Women meet in interfaith dialogue in the shared experience of being marginalized in their respective religious traditions. But they also meet in a shared commitment to reshaping those traditions. There is a “common we” which is a starting point for dialogue.

    The dissertation argues that this “common we” is created through a methodology inspired by the women’s movement, where a central feature is creating a “safe space” for telling life stories and building relations. This safe space enables conflicts to be handled in a constructive manner, and differences to be respected.

    Marginalization, otherness, difference, relation and change, are themes that occur in feminist theological works on religious plurality. How to meet and understand “the other” is the crucial question in interfaith dialogue. Feminist theology starts in the experience of being “the other”, which gives a different approach to the question. The feminist discourse on difference can also provide an opening where religious difference is seen not as a problem but as a possibility.

    Interfaith dialogue among women is a discourse on the margins, and makes conscious use of its marginality. The margins offer a different perspective compared with the centre. The dissertation discusses whether this stance reifies women’s marginality in interfaith dialogue, or has the potential to bring about a shift, where the margins become the centre.

    Reciprocity and the Risk of Rejection: Debate over Sacrifice in the Hebrew Bible2018In: Religions, ISSN 2077-1444, E-ISSN 2077-1444, Vol. 9, no 12, article id 422Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sacrifice is a central but contested topic in the prophetical literature in the Hebrew Bible. Whereas some texts criticize the sacrificial cult vehemently, other texts express strong support for such a cult. Interestingly, and somewhat paradoxically, a certain writing, such as the book of Jeremiah, may contain both cult-critical prophecies and passages that promote sacrifices. Divergent interpretations of this ancient debate have engendered an intense scholarly debate. Adopting a new approach, informed by sacrifice theories that emphasize the notion of reciprocity, this article refutes the view that prophets like Amos and Jeremiah rejected all sacrifices. Rather, they (that is, the authors of these books) addressed specific situations, or explained specific catastrophes in retrospect. Viewed from this perspective, the cult-critical prophecies, as well as other references to rejected sacrifice, are in fact compatible with a basically positive attitude towards the sacrificial cult.

    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a study of how Norse religion and early Christianization is presented in three Swedish museum contexts. Empirical studies of the exhibitions relating to religion have been conducted at The Historical Museum in Stockholm, The Museum of Gotland and Östergötlands Museum and interviews with the museum staff compliment the empirical data. The concept of religion has been problematized to facilitate the analysis. The result of the study is that there are tendencies to make a hierarchical order between the different religions and that Christianity is an organized religion while the Norse religion is semi-organized.

    Christological Marathi in Cristanchi Sastrazza Cathexismo (1778)2019In: Translating Wor(l)ds: Christianity Across Cultural Boundaries / [ed] Sabine Dedenbach-Salazar Sáenz, Baden-Baden: Academia Verlag , 2019, p. 73-96Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I analyse the theological language of a bilingual Catholic catechism from 1778, written in Portuguese and a Marathi dialect from northern Konkan, India. The Portuguese title of the catechism is Cathechismo da Doutrina Cristam and the Marathi title Cristanchi Sastrazza Cathexismo. The author is unknown. More specifically, I concentrate on terms and phrases used for expressing ideas about Christology in the Marathi text, and try to find potential points of encounter with forms of religious language in influential Hindu traditions in the Marathi speaking region in western India, especially with Jñāneśvarī and the non-dualistic Vaiṣṇavite Vārkarī movement on the one hand, and Gurucaritra and the three-headed god Dattātreya on the other. The catechism apparently follows an already established practice of rendering Christian theology in the sister languages Marathi and Konkani. One criterion for choices between (1) Indic words, (2) Portuguese loan words and (3) Marathi paraphrase for various theological concepts seems to be desired efficiency to communicate the intended meaning without provoking misunderstandings due to association with ideas belonging to worldviews incompatible with the intended one.

    Plants mentioned in the Islamic Scriptures (Holy Qur'an and Ahadith): Traditional uses and medicinal importance in contemporary times2019In: Journal of Ethnopharmacology, ISSN 0378-8741, E-ISSN 1872-7573, Vol. 243, article id 112007Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ethnopharmacological relevance: Over the past thousand years, Islamic physicians have collected cultural, philosophical, sociological and historical backgrounds for understanding diseases and medications. The Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him (PBUH) said: "There is no disease that Allah has created, except that Allah also has created its cure." Therefore, Islamic scholars are encouraged to explore and use both traditional and modern forms of medicine. Aim of the study: (1) To identify some of the medicinal plants mentioned in the Holy Qur'an and Ahadith textbooks of the period 700-1500 AD; (2) to compare them with presently used traditional medicines; (3) to evaluate their value based on modern research; and (4) to investigate the contributions of Islamic scholars to the development of the scientific branches, particularly medicine. Materials and methods: A literature search was performed relating to 12 medicinal plants mentioned in the Holy Qur'an and Ahadith using textbooks, Al-Azhar scholars, published articles, the plant list website (http://www.theplantlist.org/), the medicinal plant names services website (http://mpns.kew.org/mpns-portal/) and web databases (PubMed, Science Direct, and Google Scholar). Results and discussion: The Islamic Golden Age was a step towards modern medicine, with unique insights and multi-disciplinary aspects. Traditional Islamic Medicine has had a significant impact on the development of various medical, scientific and educational activities. Innumerable Muslim and non-Muslim physicians have built on the strong foundation of Traditional Islamic Medicine by translating the described natural remedies and effects. The influences of different ancient cultures on the traditional uses of natural products were also documented in Islamic Scriptures in the last part of the second millennium. The divine teachings of Islam combine natural and practical healing and incorporate inherited science and technology. Conclusion: In this review, we discuss Traditional Islamic Medicine with reference to both medical recommendations mentioned in the Holy Qur'an and Prophetic Traditional Medicine (al-Tibb al-Nabawi). Although the molecular mechanisms and functions of some of the listed medicinal plants and their derivatives have been intensively studied, some traditional remedies have yet to be translated into clinical applications.

    Muhammed Ibn Abd al-Wahhab och de islamska feministerna: Ett möte om kvinnans roll i äktenskapet2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The religious school of thought that is involved in the control of Saudi Arabia is called Wahhabism and is a form of Islam that is usually accused by outsiders of being misogynist. This paper will deal with the founder of this alignment of Islam, Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, and his view of women in marriage. Another movement which in turn goes to work to lift the women's rights is Islamic feminists. Two branches of Islam who belief that Islam is the only right path to take for issues surrounding gender and life. In this essay, I will compare their respective interpretations of three points which concern the role of women in marriage; men's right to polygamy, men's higher status than the woman and the men's right to beat his wife. The purpose of this paper is to ask two different interpretations of the same issues, with the same verses in the Quran against each other to see how they resemble or differ from each other to try to contribute for a greater understanding of the interpretative pluralism in Islam. The paper concludes that these two movements are looking at the three points with different eyes and in different ways as they are originated from two different contexts and have different purposes when their interpreting the verses from the Quran.

    Origins of Kingship Traditions and Symbolism in the Great Lakes Region of Africa2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Considering myth as the bearer of important symbolism with potentials to reveal history, this dissertation undertakes a historical interpretation of kingship traditions and/or myths in the Great Lakes region. While the historical sources describe the cultures of the peoples of the interlacustrine region, this study goes a step further to develop analytic categories using symbolism to interpret and explain the socio-political developments, which previously have been mystified and hence crystallised in theories as the well-known Hamitic theory. The analysis combining a historical linguistic approach with the ecology of religion has facilitated an interpretation of the symbolism surrounding kingship and thereby elucidating the development of cultural history pertaining to the interlacustrine peoples.

    Mindful of local variations, regionally applicable symbolism gained from lan-guage and the meaning of words and names have been interpreted and appropriated within the perceptual framework of the peoples concerned. The perspective from within presupposes a continuous interaction between the material and the immaterial world. In this new multi-faceted dimension of history the kingship symbolism of the white cow illustrates how the visible and the invisible world interact.

    Abstract [sv]

    Finns det något behov av att ge ut ännu en bok om islam, dess uppkomst och historia samt den nutida utvecklingen i muslimska länder? Med tanke på de förändringar som har ägt rum i muslimska länder under senare tid, att det finns en stor grupp människor här i väst som bekänner sig till islam och i takt med att främlingsfientliga och islamofobiska partier fått plats i så gott som alla europeiska parlament framstår behovet som mycket stort. Utgångspunkten för dessa partier är att sprida sina vrångbilder om islam och muslimer. I deras tankevärld framstår islam antingen som en andra rangens religion eller också reduceras den till en ideologi som är totalt väsensskild från andra abrahamitiska religioner. Detta trots att islam har sprungit ur samma religiösa idétradition, samma sociala och kulturella miljö som judendom och kristendom, följer en gemensam monoteistisk lära och att muslimerna bekänner sig till samma Gud som dessa religioner.

    Att teckna bilden av utvecklingen under islams historia och de nutida strömningarna inom nutida islam visar en mångfald av röster och tolkningstraditioner. Detta är dock inte någonting som är unikt för islam och muslimer. Vi ser liknande tendenser bland kristna, judar och andra religiösa grupper. Bokstavstrogna, traditionalistiska, fundamentalistiska och modernistiska grupper är involverade i en kamp om tolkningsföreträdet.

    Det behövs en djupare insikt om och förståelse av islam som tro och praktik och den mångfald av tolkningar som förknippas med tolkningen av islams lära under historisk tid och under vår nutid.

    Shiitisk politisk idétradition2011In: Islam och politik / [ed] Göran Larsson & Susanne Olsson, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2011, p. 65-92Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan slutet av 1970-talet har politisk shia haft en framträdande roll för utvecklingen i länder som Iran och en rad andra länder i Mellanöstern. Dit hör omstruktureringen av den politiska kartan i Irak efter diktatorn Saddam Husseins fall, som innebar att shiitiska politiska partier och ledande shiitiska rättslärda spelar en avgörande roll i landets politik samt Hizbollahs framträdande roll i Libanon. Shiitiska grupper i en rad länder med sunnitisk majoritet har också flyttat fram sina positioner.

    De senaste decenniernas utveckling i shiadominerade områden anses grunda sig på en shiitisk politisk idétradition som vuxit fram under shiaislams 1400-åriga historia. Karaktäristisk för politisk shia har varit de rättslärdas roll i politiken samt deras hänvisning till en politisk idétradition inom shia, som enligt deras synsätt, utesluter en boskillnad mellan stat/politik och religion. Frågan är om denna bild stämmer med synen på förhållandet mellan stat och religion bland shiitiska tänkare. En tillbakablick på shias historia visar dock att synen på politik och förhållandet mellan stat och religion inom shia inte varit entydig. Sett ur ett idéhistoriskt perspektiv är det inte möjligt att tala om en oförändrad politisk tradition som skulle ha präglat allt politiskt tänkande under shias historia. Vi finner snarare ett brett spektrum av olika föreställningar bland de shiitiska rättslärda. Bland dessa föreställningar finns revolutionär radikalism, realpolitiskt tänkande och politisk aktivism.

    Artikeln studerar den shiitiska politiska idétraditionens framväxt genom att undersöka om denna har varit en oförändrad metahistorisk diskurs som har präglat allt politiskt tänkande under shias 1400-åriga historia eller om den skall ses som en produkt av den historiska utvecklingen. En central fråga är på vilket sätt de shiitiska rättslärdas syn på politiken har utformats och förändrats genom deras interaktion med de faktiska sociala och politiska förhållandena i de shiadominerade regionerna i framför allt Mellanöstern.

    Tro eller fönuft i politisk islam2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    År 874 inledde den tolfte shiitiske imamen Al-Mahdi ett liv i underjorden. Sedan dess har de rättslärda brottats med frågan om hur de ska leva tills han återkommer.

    Inom islams historia finns en lång kamp mellan de religiösa ledarna och de sekulära politiska över vilka som är bäst lämpade att styra de muslimska länderna, men den händelse under 1900-talet som framför alla andra markerade religionens – eller rättare sagt de religiösa ledarnas – återkomst på den politiska scenen var revolutionen i Iran 1979.

    Bland de shiitiska rättslärda finns dock många olika politiska föreställningar. Skillnaderna beror till stor del på rådande politiska och historiska omständigheter, sociala strukturer och ekonomiska förhållanden. Men är dessa omständigheter tillräckliga för att förstå varför en grupp shiitiska rättslärda drogs till revolutionär radikalism, andra till politisk pragmatism och ytterligare andra till total avhållsamhet från den politiska scenen? Och vad har förhållande mellan tro och förnuft för betydelse för religion och politik i de olika shiitiska skolorna?

    Hiding in plain sight: A descriptive content analysis of the Muslim Brotherhood politicizing Islam 2005-20112019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis highlights the ways in which the Muslim brotherhood politicizes Islam, depicted in the group’s official documents. The study theorizes a social-constructivist approach to politicized religion and argues the concept as an effort to manipulate an understanding of religion with political intentions. Through a descriptive content analysis, this thesis analyzes three official political documents from the Muslim brotherhood’s English website, ‘Ikhwanweb’. The analysis identifies the religious ideology of the group as all-encompassing Islamic, as well as concludes the Muslim brotherhood as utilizing politicized religion extensively in the chosen material.

    Survival, memory and identity: The roles of saint worship in Early Modern Castile2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to explore the connections between the rural communities of Early Modern Castile and the saints they venerated through their festivities, relics and advocations and the roles that these relationships fulfilled in their societies. The Castilians of the sixteenth century seem to have used their interactions with saints not only for the purpose of the salvation of their souls, but rather, as ways to ensure the survival of their population, to cement social cohesion and identity, or to preserve the memory of their communities.

    Through the topographic relations of Philip II, a fantastic source that reproduces the voices of members of rural communities of Central Castile, this paper analyses the boundaries between the utilitarian and the cultural in the worship of saints, and the limits of local culture and identity.
