    Petitionary personal prayer as a coping strategy in irritable bowel syndrome – a correlational questionnaire study2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder in which the main symptoms are abdominal pain or discomfort combined with diarrhoea and/or constipation. Personal petitionary prayer – asking God for help and support when facing problems in life – is among the most common forms of prayer and can be viewed as a coping strategy when managing health problems. Previous research on the effects of personal petitionary prayer has showed conflicting findings and there are indications that prayer can be associated with more problems when facing stressful somatic problems such as chronic pain in Swedish settings rather than the opposite and expected benefits from praying. The present master-thesis was informed by the coping theory by Lazarus and Folkman (1984) and a theoretical perspective of prayer as a religious coping strategy.

    Aims: The aim was to investigate associations between personal petitionary prayer as a coping strategy and IBS symptoms, quality of life and anxiety. A second aim was to investigate if use of prayer would change 10 weeks later and if IBS symptoms at baseline could predict prayer assessed 10 weeks later.

     

    Methods: The data in this master-thesis were collected in association with a treatment trial on internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy for IBS (Ljótsson et al., 2010). Data were derived from all 85 self-selected participants who had been included in the treatment trial. The three-item self-report measure of prayer which is  part of  the Coping Strategies Questionnaire for pain was used. I also included data on self-report measures of IBS symptoms and IBS-related quality of life and anxiety, and finally a measure of symptoms of depression. The sample included were mainly women (85%), with some form of higher education (64%) and finally fairly young (Mean age 34.6 years). Data on prayer have not been published before. 10 week follow-up data were available for 37 participants. 

    Results: Statistically significant cross-sectional correlations were found between the prayer scale score and IBS-related quality of life (r =-.44, p<.01) and with gastrointestinal symptom-specific anxiety (r=.42, p<.01), which indicates that more use of prayer is associated with  lower quality of life and more anxiety symptoms. Regression analyses entering prayer in competition with the other variables as predictors showed that prayer was more consistently associated with IBS-related quality of life which also predicted prayer. Use of prayer did not change over the 10-week period and prayer at 10 weeks could not be predicted.

    Interpretation: In line with some previous research personal petitionary prayer can be associated with more rather than less problems with health. It is important to note that personal prayer is one form of prayer and that long term effects may show different results. Finally, the role of religious affiliation and cultural aspects need to be considered in future research.

    Eskatologiska tendenser i Svenska kyrkan: En analys av Svenska kyrkans biskopsbrev2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats kommer att undersöka om det går att dra eskatologiska slutsatser från Svenska kyrkans biskopsmöte genom dess biskopsbrev. Uppsatsens idé är sprungen från det prästlöfte som prästen avlägger i sin vigning. Löftet om att rent och klart förkunna Svenska kyrkans tro och lära. Svenska kyrkan tro och bekännelse är reglerad genom kyrkomötets officiellt bejakade dokument. Dessa dokument är den heliga skriften, trosbekännelser, historiska lärodokument och bekännelser, handböcker, psalmboken och andra samtida bejakade och fastslagna dokument av Svenska kyrkans kyrkomöte. Svenska kyrkans kyrkoordning konstaterar att det är kyrkans uppgift att i varje tid tolka och utlägga vad tron och läran innebär för kyrkan och den enskilda kristna i dess samtid.

    Häri finns en problematik av att Svenska kyrkans ledning ofta är motvillig till att fastslå vad som är dess tolkning av sin tro och lära i olika dogmer eller andra lärodokument. Detta kan skapa problem för den enskilda predikanten när det gäller att i sin tid just tolka och utlägga Svenska kyrkans tro och lära. Svenska kyrkan har olika institutioner som på olika sätt reglerar hur kyrkans tro och lära ska uppfattas. Dessa institutioner är kyrkomötet, domkapitel, läronämnden och biskopsmötet. Jag har valt att inrikta uppsatsen till att granska biskopsmötet funktion som en av de normerande instanserna för hur Svenska kyrkans ska tolka sin tro och lära. Tolkningsarbete gör biskopsmötet bland annat genom att skriva biskopsbrev. Biskopsbreven har en normerande funktion för hur Svenska kyrkan ska uppfatta och tolka sin tro och lära. Det som kommer att undersöka i uppsatsen är alltså att undersöka vilken eskatologisk lära som uttrycks i Svenska kyrkans biskopsbrev.

    Läronämndens bekännelse: Svenska kyrkans Läronämnds yttranden till kyrkomötet 2009-20192020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenska kyrkan är en luthersk evangelisk kyrka som vila på den apostoliska traditionen genom Confessio Augustana. Svenska kyrkan har valt att vara en episkopal kyrka där den främsta företrädaren för kyrkan är ärkebiskopen. Övriga biskopar är de främsta företrädarna för sina respektive stift. Svenska kyrkan har valt att vara demokratisk genom kyrkomötet där folkvalda representanter styr Svenska kyrkan. Under de senaste 150 åren har kyrkomötet omformats och därmed biskoparnas roll i det. Biskoparna gick från att vara självskrivna ledamöter till att ingå i en läronämnd med syftet att yttra sig kring olika frågor som uppstått i kyrkomötet med läromässiga implikationer. Det denna uppsats vill undersöka är hur läronämnde utför sitt arbete att yttra sig angående sådana frågor i kyrkomötet. Därför kommer ett antal yttranden att granskas systematiskt för att undersöka om mönster finns i läronämndens sätt att skriva yttranden.

    Svenska kyrkans episkopé: En stuide om Svenska kyrkans episkopala ecklesiologi2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how the Church of Sweden's episcopal expression has changed over the past 40 years. The purpose of the study has been to see the change and understand the consequences it may have given the church. What emerges from the study is that there has been a change in the episcopal expression and with the help of the essay's method, it can be said to be an expression in a change that can be explained as from an egalitarian episcopal order to a decentralized episcopal order. The expression of the change could be said to culminate with the recent crisis in the diocese of Härnösand and the causes of the crisis can be said to be linked to the proven change egalitarian-decentralized episcopate.

    Från hotfull och främmande till accepterad?: Bilden av romersk katolska kyrkan i svensk kristen press 1962-19662013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är att studera bilden av den romersk katolska kyrkan från det protestantiska perspektivet i Sverige. Historiskt har den protestantiska bilden sedan reformationen betraktat romersk katolska kyrkan antingen som hotfull eller främmande.

    Uppsatsens primärmaterial består av ett representativt urval av svensk kristen press, med olika Svenskkyrkliga riktningar samt de större frikyrkliga samfunden som avsändare. Avgränsningen är förlagd till år 1962-1966, och följer Andra Vatikankonciliets pågående.

    Uppsatsens resultat uppvisar flera olika uttryck. Bilden av Andra Vatikankonciliet och romersk katolska kyrkan betraktades relativt positivt i delar av de svenskkyrkliga tidningar, medan uttrycken var generellt negativa i frikyrklig press. Enstaka tendenser vittnar även om att historiska uppfattningar av en hotfull romersk katolsk kyrka var fortsatt närvarande under Andra Vatikankonciliets pågående.

    Early Sunnī Historiography: A Study of the Tārīkh of Khalīfa b. Khayyāṭ2018 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Early Sunnī Historiography, Tobias Andersson presents the first full-length study of the earliest Islamic chronological history extant: the Tārīkh (‘Chronicle’) of the Basran ḥadīth scholar and historian Khalīfa b. Khayyāṭ al-ʿUṣfurī (d. 240/854). The book examines how Khalīfa worked as a historian in terms of his social and intellectual context, selection of sources, methods of compilation, arrangement of material and narration of key themes in comparison to the wider historiographical tradition. It shows how Khalīfa’s affiliation with the early Sunnī ḥadīth scholars of Basra is reflected in his methods and concerns throughout the Tārīkh, while also highlighting similarities to other histories compiled by ḥadīth scholars of the third/ninth century.

    Islamisk vinpoesi från Ibn al-Farid till Ian Dallas2023In: Tidsskrift for islamforskning, E-ISSN 1901-9580, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 215-234Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Genom islams historia har sufiska poeter ofta beskrivit den överväldigande kärleken till Gud som en berusning på vin – den gudomliga kärlekens eviga vin som genomsyrar allt som existerar. Föreliggande artikel utforskar tre uttryck för sufisk vinpoesi från olika historiska sammanhang: först den egyptiske poeten ʻUmar b. al-Farids (1181–1235) omtalade vinsång, khamriyya, därefter den marockanske sufishejken Ahmad b. ʻAjibas (1747–1809) kommentar till Ibn al-Farids vinsång och slutligen den skotske sufishejken Ian Dallas (1930–2021, även kallad Abdalqadir as-Sufi) kommentar till Ibn ʻAjibas tidigare nämnda kommentar. Syftet är att lyfta fram vinpoesins betydelse i sufiska sammanhang som ett sätt att inte bara beskriva Guds kärlek och uttrycka erfarenheten av denna kärlek utan även vägleda andra människor till liknande andliga tillstånd. Artikeln belyser därmed vinpoesins didaktiska användning som utgångspunkt för sufisk undervisning och som uttryck för de andliga insikter och tillstånd som denna undervisning avser att förverkliga. Det framträder särskilt tydligt i Ibn ʻAjibas och Ian Dallas kommentarer. Artikeln belyser även vinpoesins fortsatta betydelse i sufiska sammanhang, långt efter genrens stora genomslag på 1200-talet, numera även i engelskspråkiga sammanhang. Medan Ibn al-Farids poesi är förhållandevis väl utforskad har varken Ibn ʻAjibas kommentar eller Ian Dallas superkommentar inkluderats i tidigare studier av islamisk vinpoesi.

    Kommentar till Sanusi: En systematisk studie i islamisk teologi2022Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout the postclassical period (c. 650/1250 to 1300/1900) commentaries on earlier texts dominated the literary output of Muslim theologians. Scholars have debated whether these commentaries were repetitive and unoriginal, symptomatic of stagnant traditionalism, or whether they often made profound contributions to ongoing theological conversations. This study extends these debates by exploring the potential significance of the commentarial format for constructive Islamic theology within the academic field of systematic theology. It suggests that commentaries may still contribute to dialogue between past and present theologians, but that this would require a considerable renewal of their usual forms and functions as well as a greater hermeneutic awareness of theology as an ongoing interpretative process taking place within particular traditions. 

    The study draws on Alasdair MacIntyre’s concept of traditions as historically extended arguments in which certain agreements are defined and redefined in terms of both internal and external conflicts. This concept contributes both to the analysis of commentarial literature, which arguably exemplifies it more than any other format, and to understanding the study of Islamic theology as taking place within different, albeit overlapping, traditions. 

    The first part of the study (Chs. 1–3) outlines MacIntyre’s concept in relation to Islamic theology, examines Islamic commentarial practices until today and introduces the material explored in the second part: the manuals and commentaries of the North African Ashʿarī theologian Muḥammad b. Yūsuf al-Sanūsī (d. 895/1490). The second part (Chs. 4–6) consists of a threefold commentary on al-Sanūsī’s most famous manual, al-ʿAqīdat al-ṣughrā, focusing on meta-ethics, natural theology and prophetology. Each chapter contains its own theological inquiries and arguments, critically engaging the Ashʿarī tradition to which al-Sanūsī belonged. Taken together they provide a case for the enduring relevance of commentaries and an example of how the format may be renewed today. The study as a whole contributes to the ongoing discussion about critical and constructive approaches to Islamic theology – within systematic theology and philosophy of religion – going beyond the exclusively historical approach that still dominates contemporary Islamic studies.

    Traditionens gränser: Teologiska reflektioner över al-Ghazālīs Fayṣal al-tafriqa2024In: Svensk teologisk kvartalskrift, ISSN 0039-6761, Vol. 99, no 4, p. 345-363Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the themes of tradition and renewal in Islamic theology through a reading of Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī's Fayṣal al-tafriqa bayna l-islām wa-l-zandaqa ("The Decisive Criterion for Distinguishing Islam from Heresy"), a classic work about the boundaries of theological tolerance in Islam. The article begins by discussing descriptive and normative usages of the term "Islamic" and then moves on to reflect on al-Ghazālī's distinction between revelation and interpretation, his "rule of interpretation" (qānūn al-taʾwīl) and his emphasis on the importance of ethical and spiritual virtues for all intellectual activity, including theology, in relation to questions concerning tradition and renewal. It draws on Alasdair MacIntyre's notion of tradition as "an historically extended, socially embodied argument" and argues that attempts at theological renewal must, of course, be rooted in the foundational texts of the overarching Islamic tradition, mainly the Qur'an and the hadith corpus, but also in the historically extended and socially embodied arguments of its subtraditions, such as the Ashʿarī and Māturīdī schools of theology. The purpose of the article is to contribute to the ongoing discussion about theological renewal in the Islamic tradition and to the ongoing discussion about normative studies of Islamic theology at European universities by putting al-Ghazālī in dialogue with MacIntyre.

    Blir det skolavslutning i kyrkan eller inte?: En innehållsanalys kring diskussionen om kyrkan som lokal eller inte under skolavslutningen.2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is about the discussion concerning graduation celebrations in The Swedish Church. Since this discussion is recurrent in the media when it is getting close to the end of the term in the Swedish schools, it is interesting to see how people choose to discuss this issue. This essay will look at how this issue is discussed within the Swedish school and the Swedish church. My research questions that I will use are: How is the issue of the church as a venue for the end of school year discussed in the Swedish Church's newspaper and in the Teachers' Union's trade magazine, Läraren.  This will be done through a content analysis of articles taken from these two newspapers where they discuss the church as a venue for the graduation. I will use a secularization theory developed by the sociologist of religion Thomas Luckmann in which he assumes that one can look at religion from two perspectives, church-oriented religion, and individual-centered religion. The survey in this paper shows that most people are in favor of using the church as a venue for the graduation’s celebrations and that they see it more as a tradition to be there such as something religious.

    The Nonracist Racist: A Discursive Psychology Approach to Anti-immigration Sentiment in Sweden2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Immigration is one of the effects, one of the symptoms of the ill-functioning and outdated machine that is the elite. Immigration and asylum-seeking have been frequent topics in public debates for years. The number of refugees making their way from war-torn regions of the world to Sweden makes the citizen versus asylum-seeker dichotomy highly relevant for social psychology research about discursively constituted identities. That is to say: how social-categorizations, emotions and attitudes are created in text and talk. Today, public opinion is largely produced online, this makes it possible to explore the motivations, strategies and goals of “the nonracist racist” on Facebook. This study utilizes a dual-edged approach in that coding is done both from an inductive- and a deductive direction. It adheres to a discursive psychology approach and follows Potter and Edward’s (2001) situated, action-oriented and constructed features of discourse. These theoretical features inform the deductive coding and are contextualized using Sakki and Pettersson’s (2016) three representation of otherness with subsequent six discourses produced by the populist radical right.

    Findings indicate that cultural comparison constructing cultural incompatibility is the main rhetorical resource for constructing the citizen versus asylum-seeker dichotomy. However, this dichotomy is not the most dominant “us and them” construction by the “nonracist racist”. “The elite versus the people” is the most common “us and them” construction. It carries significant weight that the seemingly unfiltered expressions of hatred on anti-immigration pages on Facebook are more concerned with what “we” are doing wrong rather than what is wrong with any “deviant others”. It is more about an internal clash of moral compasses than it is about a supposed clash of civilizations. Along with the occasioned feature of discourse, this partly explains why anti-immigration advocates for example position themselves as victims or defenders.

    Differently different?: – Changing the perception of ‘US & THEM’2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study uses a longitudinal case study approach to observe change in ‘US and THEM-thinking’. Its purpose is to increase awareness of identity processes among participants and to test if the Attitude-Behaviour-Context-Triangle (the ABC-triangle) may be a way to achieve that. The ABC-triangle is modified as an ‘identity-analysis tool’ rather than a ‘conflict-analysis tool’.               Aspects relating to recognition of multiple identity affiliations compared to singular-identity categorisation is of interest. The traditional identity theories suggest that high identity salience increase singular-identity categorisation and thereby increase positive emotions for ingroup and negative emotions for outgroup. This study is partly based on the social identity perspective but complements it with Thoits’ identity-accumulation hypothesis and Hogg’s uncertainty-identity theory. Hogg’s theory locates uncertainty reduction as a main contributor to singular-identity categorisation together with its’ implied negative consequences. Hogg’s solutions are located both in multiple identity affiliations, as do Thoits, and in perceived cognitive ability to deal with uncertainty. This study emphasises awareness of identity processes to be the single most important factor for decreasing negative views of ‘THEM’. Overlooked in the more dominant theories of this area, it finds that recognition of multiple identity affiliations influences the perceived singular-identity terms imposed by an ‘US and THEM-situation’. Thereby, challenging imposed identity-restrictions and perceived intergroup competition. Furthermore, it questions the theoretical importance given to identity salience in previous research and theories since high identity salience, in this case, does not equal a singular-identity categorisation or increase negative views of ‘others’.

    Religiös symbolik i marknadsföring: En studie om religiösa symboler på Malta, i Jugoslavien och i Indien och hur dessa används för att skapa en regional identitet i turistsammanhang2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The world is filled with symbols which possess great meaning to people all around the world. Some of these symbols may be considered religious, thus bearing an occult and mystic meaning to those close to them. In Malta the Sovereign Military Order of Malta is a key part to the islands history and is these days also utilized as a symbol for the tourism industry.What happens when these symbols meet with the world hand in hand with media and other commercial instances? The purpose of this paper is to take a closer look at what consequences a commodification of the knights of Malta might breed and to compare the situation on the island with two other similar situations in India and in former Yugosla-via. With a hermeneutic approach I look at tourism material in form of websites and mer-chandise to make an analysis with the help of two theories, one being the theory of Banal Religion by Stig Hjarvard; the other being Colleen McDannell’s theory on Material Christianity.Results indicate that a de-contextualization from the institutionalized religion can be wit-nessed on Malta. However, with Hjarvards theory applied - this is not necessarily a nega-tive change. It should instead be seen as a product of a secular society without any com-pulsory changes on views on the religion from the average catholic person on the island. McDannell’s theory strengthens this thesis by suggesting that symbols are a part of the belief and not a simplification of the religion. The comparing studies from India and for-mer Yugoslavia with their own consequences should not be viewed as an imminent con-cern for Malta but could be used as instruments to compare certain aspects.

    God in the act of reference: A conceptual analysis of reference and reality and its consequences for the debate on religious realism and nonrealism2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The dissertation addresses the problem of reference actualised in religiousrealism's claim that religious nonrealism is religiously inadequate since init "God" does not refer to a God existing independently of human conceptualisations. The study aims to show that the referential argument against religious nonrealism is not necessarily successful once the existential and referential presumptions of the argument are critically examined. To that end a gradual distinction between conceptualisations with lower and higher dependencies on physical characteristics is introduced to account for how we conceptualise our surroundings and why we consider something to be real or not. Further, Donnellan's referential-attributive distinction is understood in the light of the dissolution of the strict division between semantics and pragmatics, and is used for suggesting a view on the referent as constituted by the speaker's directive intentions as manifested and interpreted in the context of utterance. From ordinary language use, including contexts such as children's make-believe play, it is shown that both physically existing and so called non-existing objects are constituted as referents with higher or lower dependencies on physical characteristics and as having various conceptual relations and functions. It is finally argued that such a pragmatic analysis of what constitutes the referent to "God" can account for why God in a religious context can be considered to be real without additionally asserting God's metaphysical and independent existence.

    Finns det en klyfta mellan kyrkan och folket?: Intervjuer med församlingsbor och präster i Stockholmsområdet2009Doctoral thesis, monograph
    Abstract [en]

    Aim. To describe and compare parishioners’ and minister’s 1) existential, spiritual and religious experiences, 2) expectations and conceptions regard-ing the Church and the ecclesial activities and 3) in theological terms reflect over these experiences and conceptions.

    Method. A random, stratified, sample was constructed relating to parishion-ers and ministers in 24 parishes in the Stockholm bishopric, concerning men and women in the ages 25-65. The educational level of parishioners, was comparable to the average of Stockholm residents.

    Results. Both parishioners and ministers described several existential and spiritual/religious experiences. It was not clear if there were any differences between the two groups concerning spiritual/religious experiences. Yet, their experiences were interpreted in different ways, inasmuch that ministers more often interpreted their experiences in confessional terms. Parishioners thought that religion could be expressed in many different ways. They considered the divine services to be too rigid and distant and wished that ministers should be on their own level and not set themselves above ordinary people. The ministers could be placed on an continuum from sender orientation to receiver orientation due to their expectations and con-ceptions regarding the Church and the ecclesial activities. Sender orientation means to primarily start with the Church statement of faith. Receiver orienta-tion means, to primarily start with the parishioners from their own world-view where religion can be expressed in many different ways. The ministers presented in total 48% sender orientation descriptions and 52% receiver ori-entation. Comparable figures for the parishioners were 5% sender orientation and 95% receiver orientation.

    Conclusions. There seems to be a tension between, on one hand the view of a Church with an aim to meet the existential and spiritual needs of the pa-rishioners, and on the other hand a Church with a primary mission to com-municate the Christian articles of faith. If half of the ministers have a direc-tion in which parishioners have no interest and do not ask for, this might be a problem for the Church.

    Is there a Gap between the Church and the People?: Interviews with Parishioners and Ministers in the Stockholm District2010In: Journal of Empirical Theology, ISSN 0922-2936, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 82-103Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Twenty-four parishioners and 24 ministers of the Church of Sweden were interviewed concerning their beliefs about religion, the Church and ecclesiastic activities. The results showed that ministers could be placed on a continuum ranging from sender orientation to receiver orientation. Sender orientation means, primarily, directed towards reaching people who proceed from a definite opinion, namely the Church's teaching. Receiver orientation means, primarily, directed towards reaching people who proceed from their own worldview where religion may be expressed in many different ways. Parishioners gave a total of 5% sender-oriented and 95% receiver-oriented descriptions. Comparable figures for ministers were 48% sender-oriented and 52% receiver-oriented. If more than half the ministers have an orientation that neither interests nor attracts parishioners, this can be a problem to the Church.

    The Chora of God: Approaching the Outskirts of Mariology in the Akathistos2021In: Journal of Orthodox Christian Studies, ISSN 2574-495X, E-ISSN 2574-4968, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 127-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the more-than-human characterization of the Theotokos in the famous Akathistos Hymn. The Mother of God emerged as an intercessional figure in the Christian imagination during late antiquity, but the formative period of mariology is still partly uncharted territory to modern scholarship. Reflecting on its rich landscape imagery and chora language, the article argues that the Akathistos minimizes the human traits of the Theotokos, rendering her more as a spatial phenomenon. In the hymn, we may glimpse traces of Marian ideas less developed during subsequent periods, ideas which gesture toward what we may call a "dark mariology." The Logos incarnates into more than human flesh, and the womb has a close affinity with the landscape. The Akathistos evokes the vision of a wider nonhuman participation in the incarnation rooted in the natural landscape of the Theotokos.
