    What's Wrong with the Adequacy-Argument? A Pragmatic Diagnosis2011In: Sophia - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, Metaphysical Theology and Ethics, ISSN 0038-1527, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 11-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When confronted with the question of which philosophical conception of religion to consider most adequate, many philosophers appeal to what I call the adequacy-arguemnt: that we should prefer the one that looks most adequate from the perspective of religious believers. In this paper, I provide a critique of the adequacy-argument based on a pragmatic analysis of adequacy-judgments according to which reflective adequacy-judgments are forward-looking, and hence include considerations of the consequences of adopting different judgments as guides for conduct. It is this forward-looking character that is virtually absent with the current adequacy-debate. The major advantage of a pragmatic analysis if adequacy is itself forward-looking: it would enable philosophers of religion to play a more critical and constructive role vis-a-vis religious practices than presently.

    The customization of science: The impact of religious and political worldviews on contemporary science2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book explores whether and how religious and secular worldviews and political ideologies held by scientists, citizens, decision-makers and politicians influence science as practiced and understood today. In this book, customized science is defined as a science built according to - or altered and fitted to - a particular group's specifications, that is, its needs, interests or values., its political ideology or worldview. It is science governed not merely by goals such as increased knowledge and explanatory power, but also by goals such as economic growth, sustainable development, the equality of women or the end of religion. The contributions to this book discuss, with regard to particular worldviews and themes connected to the public role of science, whether science is increasingly becoming customized to fit the needs and interests of various groups in society, but also what the consequences of such a development may be both for science and society

    Religion and the Protest Movement: Christian Churches in 2020 Belarus2023In: Communist and post-communist studies, ISSN 0967-067X, E-ISSN 1873-6920, Vol. 56, no 3, p. 22-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the position of the Christian churches on the protests in Belarus in 2020. This study contributes to the research on the state-society relationship in autocratic regimes by nuancing the thesis that civil society is either marginalized or fully co-opted by the authoritarian state. The protest wave showed that the initiatives of religious groups fostered collective action in a state system that is punitive of any dissent. The article identifies churches as an ambivalent space: one where the state can exercise social control, but where potential resistance to the repressive state might also occur since they enjoy a greater degree of freedom than other organizations in authoritarian Belarus. Moreover, our study argues that religion can be seen as a privileged arena of protest within existing legal frameworks of the "contract" between the state and the church. By looking at the societal engagement of different religious confessions campaigning for their rights and promoting their visions of desirable political development on the grassroots level, this article addresses a range of opportunities to engage in civic activism in Belarus.

    Lutheran Perspectives on Mission2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) understands itself as “a communion of churches which confess the triune God, agree in the proclamation of the Word of God and are united in pulpit and altar fellowship”.[1] Together these churches participate in God’s mission across the globe. The Seven-Year Report, presented at the Twelfth LWF Assembly earlier this year (Windhoek 2017), states:

    We take part in God’s mission by sharing the good news of God’s love. Inspired by this love, we put our faith into action, working for the empowerment and liberation of people who are marginalized and in need. We advocate for justice in all areas of life—economic, social and ecological— and lift up the God-given dignity of each and every human being.[2]

    As indicated, God’s mission is carried out not in a vacuum but is situated, shaped, and negotiated in relation to diverse pastoral, economic, and socio-political contexts. Lutheran churches thus interact with the wider society and are thus “called and sent to be transformative agents in the world”.[3]

    With this overarching perspective on mission in mind, this paper intends to present some of the leading ideas on Christian mission as perceived and framed within the context of the LWF. A special focus is drawn to Mission in Context: Transformation, Reconciliation, Empowerment. An LWF Contribution to the Understanding and Practice of Mission, published in 2004 and still considered the most comprehensive document on mission within the LWF.

    The latter part of the paper indicates a number of areas in need of further reflection, which, at least in part, resonate some of the most recent study processes within the LWF; The Church in the Public Space and The Bible in the Life of the Lutheran Communion published last year. These documents were primarily written with other purposes in mind than nurturing the conversations on mission. Nevertheless, they reflect some of the major challenges Lutheran churches across the world are encountering with clear implications for how they wrestle with issues on mission and ecumenical cooperation.

    Luthersk prästutbildning vid Makumira i Tanzania - Svenska kyrkans insatser 1942-19822012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Såväl utgångspunkter som förutsättningar för arbetet med teologisk utbildning inom luthersk kyrkotradition i Tanzania har förändrats avsevärt de senaste hundra åren. Missionsinsatserna under förra seklets början inom utbildningsområdet understödde kyrkornas territoriella expansion. Att bedriva undervisning betraktades som en självklar del av missionsuppdraget och var ett sätt för kyrkan att etableras i det omkringliggande samhället. Det var genom ökad kunskap som Afrika skulle civiliseras och tanzaniern gå från ett obildat till ett bildat tillstånd. Denna utbildningsdiskurs, i vars kölvatten dagens teologiska utbildningssystem ännu befinner sig, innebar i flera stycken en ideologisk, ekonomisk, kulturell och teologisk import av västvärldens ideal. 1960-talets konstitutionella omdaningsprocess i både samhälle och kyrka bidrog till att frågor om kritiskt reflekterande forskningsmiljöer samt ändamålsenliga och kontextuella utbildningar kom i fokus på ett nytt sätt. Arbetet med teologisk utbildning, som i stor utsträckning handlade om en strukturellt etablerad prästutbildning i hela sin bredd, ledde fram till en reflektion kring formerna för och innebörden av ett relevant kyrkligt ledarskap.

    Ekonomiskt och personellt stöd till verksamheter inom fältet teologisk utbildning har historiskt sett kännetecknats av en enkelriktad insats från kyrkorna på norra halvklotet till kyrkorna i syd. Även om 1900-talet uppvisar en påtaglig förskjutning från ett ensidigt ekonomiskt och personellt stöd till tydligare satsningar på regionala kapacitetsstärkande insatser och på ömsesidiga utbyten genom olika nätverk är maktasymmetrin allt fort uppenbar. Dessa ojämlika maktrelationer blir tydliga när det t.ex. handlar om utbildningsinstitutionernas finansiering, akademiska paradigm och personella kompetens. Under de senaste decennierna är det dock tydligt att allt starkare och mer självständiga institutioner vuxit fram på den afrikanska kontinenten som ett resultat av ett strategiskt och långsiktigt arbete.

    Jag har i min uppsats visat hur ovan nämnda utvecklingslinjer haft direkt bäring på såväl verksamheten vid Makumira som på Svenska kyrkans stöd till samma institution fram till uppsatsperiodens slut 1982. Min historiska exposé från de nordvästra delarna av landet visar hur motiven till och det praktiska arbetet med den teologiska utbildningen - om än i liten skala - redan från början varit central för arbetet i sin helhet. Vidare har jag visat hur arbetet med teologisk utbildning vid Makumira tagit intryck av såväl lokala, regionala som internationella impulser. Flera av de frågor som var föremål för diskussion bearbetades parallellt på samtliga nivåer inom kyrkan. Det visar hur verksamheten vid Makumira varit insatt i ett komplext samspel med många aktörer som tillsammans, och ibland omedvetna om varandras intressen och existens, ville bedriva teologisk utbildning. Makumira hade till uppgift att försöka gestalta den ”enhet i mångfald” som sedan 1963 varit en stor utmaning för ELCT i stort. Drömmen om en unierad kyrka för hela den östafrikanska regionen förverkligades aldrig. Däremot fördjupades i samma region samarbetet inom och mellan kyrkor och institutioner av skilda slag. Den utbildning som växte fram på Makumira var rotad i den lutherska traditionen och samtidigt ekumeniskt öppen med ett ökat antal studenter från olika kyrkor och länder på den afrikanska kontinenten. Rapporter och brev från de svenska lärarna vid Makumira och de externa examinatorerna från Uppsala Universitet visar inte bara hur delar av utbildningen de facto förändrades över tid utan också hur och på vilka sätt man försökte förhålla sig till det av västvärlden importerade och i praktiken dominerande vetenskapsparadigm som präglade undervisningen.

    1970-talets expansiva period då institutionen strävade efter ökad ekonomisk och teologisk självständighet aktualiserade många frågor som fram till idag inte besvarats i tillräcklig omfattning. Det handlar bl.a. om ramar och förutsättningar för arbetet med kontextuell teologi, hälsofrågor kopplade till pastoralteologi samt gender och jämställdhet.  Visionen om en dynamisk och relevant utbildning – både till dess innehåll, studiemiljö och struktur – lever allt fort men måste samtidigt omformuleras på nytt i varje ny tid.

    Made in Africa? Mapping the Field of Theological Education in East Africa: Paper presentation, Divinity Faculty, University of Cambridge, December 3, 20142014Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals primarily with theological education in a Protestant context and has a particular focus on African evangelicalism. But to search for an educational model that is genuinely African is, as the title of this presentation indicates, a tricky task. I argue that the debate on theological education crosses national and denominational borders and what might first be seen as unique regional expressions or experiences are evidently interwoven with an even wider and more complex pan-African history of theological education. The landscape of higher education, in which the churches have to navigate, is therefore filled with ambiguities. Public and private institutions alike relate, in one way or the other, to the field of religious or theological studies. But the churches have responded differently to these challenges depending on their views upon what theological grounds education might be perceived and developed. The way theological education is motivated, performed and developed is highly dependent on the denominational identity of the institution and the particular context in which, let say evangelical theology, is shaped and promoted on the African continent and elsewhere.

    My presentation is divided into three parts. The first section will deal with higher education in the East African setting mainly from an historical perspective with a particular focus on the churches involvement. In the second section I will focus more specifically on the case of African evangelicals in regard to their stand on theological education and call for theological reflection. The arguments used from their side are most certainly not unique for evangelicals only but they may serve as an example of what it might mean for a particular denomination to be involved in theological education and what impact that might have for theology as a whole. In the last section my intention is to say something about how and why the issues addressed in this presentation will be further dealt with in the context of my PhD project during the years to come.

    Made in Africa? Visions and Debates of Theological Education amongst Lutherans and Evangelicals in Africa2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to analyse some of the major debates on theological education - its theological departure points, motives and objectives - amongst Lutherans and Evangelicals in sub-Saharan Africa.  

    The number of African institutions involved in higher education, public and private institutions alike, have rapidly grown during the last decades. Together they form global or regional networks with an on-going exchange of knowledge, ideas, technology, money, students and staff. The largest growth of private higher education has been identified amongst institutions with religious affiliation. Due to their increasing involvement, the churches have been challenged to modify their views on what it might mean to be a relevant actor for societal change.

    The field of theological education is situated in the midst of this complex context. Drawn into an expanding, expensive and competitive educational discourse, the churches, regardless of denominational affiliation, have questioned, problematized and challenged many of their old concepts and practices. The debate on theological education crosses national and denominational borders and is clearly interwoven with an even wider and more complex pan-African history.

    Based upon the discussions in two African theological periodicals - Africa Theological Journal, founded in 1968 in a Lutheran context in Tanzania, and Africa Journal of Evangelical Theology founded in an evangelical setting in Kenya in 1982 - this paper seeks to draw attention to some of the visions for the future on the African continent.

    Mission, Visions, and Debates of Higher Theological Education. Lutheran Encounters with Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity in Tanzania2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores some of the present challenges related to Lutheran higher theological education in Tanzania with special regard to the encounters with Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity.

    The number of African institutions involved in higher education, public and private institutions alike, have rapidly grown during the last decades. Together they form global or regional networks with an on-going exchange of knowledge, ideas, technology, money, students and staff. The largest growth of private higher education has been identified amongst institutions with religious affiliation. Due to their increasing involvement, the churches have been challenged to modify their views on what it might mean to be a relevant actor for societal change.

    The field of theological education is situated in the midst of this complex context. Drawn into an expanding, expensive and competitive educational discourse, the churches, regardless of denominational affiliation, have questioned, problematized and challenged many of their old concepts and practices. The debate on theological education crosses national and denominational borders and is clearly interwoven with an even wider and more complex pan-African history.

    Based upon interviews with lecturers at the Faculty of Theology at Tumaini University Makumira, including some of the bishops in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT), this paper seeks to draw attention the idea of mission and ministry in higher theological education and its impact on the visions for the future on the African continent.

    Transfiguring Lutheran Identities and Theological Education in Tanzania2017In: Mending the World?: Possibilities and Obstacles for Religion, Church, and Theology. / [ed] Niclas Blåder and Kristina Helgesson Kjellin, Eugene: Oregon.: Pickwick Publications, 2017, p. 469-485Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this chapter is to explore some of the perceptions of Lutheran identity in the context of theological education in Tanzania in past and present time. Two different types of material have specifically been of relevance, namely Africa Theological Journal, that was launched in 1968 in a Lutheran academic context in Tanzania and that ever since has been an important platform for theological reflection amongst churches and institutions in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond. Moreover, a current perspective on Lutheran identity will be further discussed in relation to a number of interviews recently conducted in Tanzania amongst theological educators and Lutheran church leaders.[1]

    This chapter will be divided into two sections. The first section draws attention to three aspects of Lutheran identity in the life of the ELCT. First, it highlights the theological and socio-political context in the mid 1960s onwards when Lutheran identity was problematized and discussed in the wake of decolonization. Second, it focuses on the Lutheran Reformation anniversary from the mid 1980s when the African Lutheran debate was situated in its wider global and ecumenical context. Third, it pinpoints the Lutheran call for denominational consciousness in the 21st century. With these three examples in mind, the issue of Lutheran identity will be further discussed in relation to the educational discourse on higher theological education in in the ELCT in specific and in sub-Saharan Africa more broadly. Thus this chapter will show that the reflections on denominational identity and the current interpretations of Lutheran tradition draw attention to the complex interplay between theology and theological education.

    [1] The interviews were conducted during my fieldwork in northern Tanzania in January 2016 and will be further elaborated upon in my PhD thesis on visions and debates of theological education amongst Lutherans in Tanzania (forthcoming 2018).

    Transfiguring Lutheran identities in the debate on theological education in sub-Saharan Africa2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Africa Theological Journal was launched in 1968 and has ever since been an important platform for theological reflection amongst churches and institutions in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond. The initiative to establish the periodical was taken in the wake of the All-Africa Lutheran Conferences in Tanzania (1955), Madagascar (1960), and Ethiopia (1965). Initially the periodical was financially supported by the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and throughout the years edited and produced by the Faculty of Lutheran Theological College Makumira (now Tumaini University Makumira) in Tanzania. Despite such strong and multifaceted ties to Lutheran tradition and its many transnational links and networks, the perceptions of what it means to be Lutheran in the discourse of higher theological education remain rather vague.

    The overall aim of this paper is to explore some of the perceptions of Lutheran identity in relation to the conversations on higher theological education in sub-Saharan Africa. In order to do that a partial aim is to examine some of the main features of the Lutheran educational discourse on higher theological education and ministerial formation in Africa. Another partial aim, based upon the 1983 and 2015 special issues of Africa Theological Journal that specifically focused on the Lutheran reformation, is to discuss some specific examples that clearly show what is at stake. Thus this paper will show that the reflections on denominational identity and the current interpretations of Lutheran tradition draw attention to the complex interplay between theology and theological education.

    Abstract [en]

    The article tries to explain the recent emergence of the new religious rank within the Jain Śvetāmbar Terāpãth community in India. Traditional Jainism makes a clear distinction between two groups of followers, namely ascetic monks and laymen. Under the sect’s late leader Ācārya Tulsi (1914–1997), prolific author and founder of the Vishva Bharati Institute in Ladnun (Rajasthan), an intermediary rank between the ‎monks and the laity was introduced. This paper argues that the main motivation to introduce the new rank follows socio-economic considerations relating to the large and economically prospering Jain diaspora that has been growing outside of ‎India in recent decades. The paper discusses the foundation and ‎development of the Samaṇ Śreṇi, as the new rank became known, through original materials published by ‎the community as well as fieldwork findings and interviews made in the Śvetāṃbar religious centre of Ladnun (Rajasthan).

    När livet oväntat förändras: Föräldrars erfarenheter efter spädbarnsdöd, med särskild hänsyn till ritualers funktion. En religionspsykologisk studie.2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The study examines rituals’ psychosocial functions for Swedish parents with experience of SIDS. Focus is on: the parents’ experience of religious rituals such as funerals; private indivudal rituals such as interaction with things belonging to the child; private collective rituals in the Swedish SIDS Society for parents who have lost an infant through SIDS (Spädbarnsfonden); and, informal and formal help support structures.

    The study’s mixed methods design has a qualitative approach, with qualitative (semi-structured interview) and quantitative (survey) methods. The qualitative method is central.

    Three different points of time are examined. Two are included in the survey. The first relates to the child’s death, where data are collected with a retrospective perspective. The second is the cross-sectional survey in 2002, in which 111 parents participated. The third is the semi-structured interviews in 2008, in which a sub-group of  8 women participated.

    The main results show, in the Swedish context, that individual private rituals are important during the first year. These rituals contribute to the parents’ working through the grief process at both intrapersonal and interpersonal levels. The collective, private rituals become more important after some time and are implemented mainly within the family and through the Swedish SIDS Society. Religious rituals are important at the time of the child’s death and serve a marking function of both the parents’ and child’s situations. Over time, attending funerals and visiting the child’s funeral church are important ritual functions for maintaining a symbolic contact with the child as well as for the grief work process.

    En verkligt overklig Gud: om sambandet mellan non-realism och religiös pluralism2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I examine the relation between religious non-realism and religious pluralism. Religious pluralism is celebrated by it's adherents, to be benevolent and tolerant towards other religions truth claims and practices. Religious non-realism is also, by its adherents, praised for its including way to look upon truth claims and differing opinions about reality. When it comes to questions like what there is and what is not, does God exist or does he not etc. the religious non-realist is prone to less dogmatism and definite answers than metaphysical realists. Or at least so does the non-realists themselves like to think. What I examine in this essay is whether religious non-realism pragmatically implies religious pluralism, or if a non-realist judiciously can dismiss religious pluralism and instead adopt a form of confessional view of a specifik religion. Religious exclusivism, like the one Alvin Plantinga defends, rejects the possibility of x being both true and false. If a religious claim is taken to be true then incompatible claims have to be considered false according to this view. This fits poorly whith religious non-realism since the latter does not embrace a correspondance theory of truth. Religious pluralism is strongly criticized, among others for leaving “God” or other religious entities empty and whithout characteristics or content. This, because if God is litterally indescribable and unreachable, we would have no reason to believe that God has the chatacteristics we think he has. If religious pluralism cannot answer to the criticism, and if non-realism can not help pluralism evade the problems, then we are in need of a religious inclusivism that does not depend on metaphysical realism. I propose, what I have called, a pragmatic non-realistic inclusivism as an answer to the problem. This is a non-realistic theory that evades metaphysical realism and reductionism of religion, but nevertheless can prefere one religion before others. Not because one religion is concidered to have metaphysical and objective truth while others do not, but because one could prefere a specific religious language and consider that religion to be the most adequate response to human life

    Försonar Jesus alla?: en undersökning av försoningslärors relation till pluralism och inklusivism2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay the coherence between three theories of atonement are analysed with religiouspluralism and religious inclusivism. The atonement theories analysed are the classical, theobjective, and the subjective theory. The result shows if the role of Jesus as saviour in the Passionchanges if the specific theory of atonement is combined with religious pluralism or religiousinclusivism. Through an analysis of the coherence between the three theories of atonement andpluralism and inclusivism, it is made clear that the notion of truth is not viewed in the same waywithin the theories of atonement and religious pluralism and inclusivism. The classical and theobjective theory meets problems when combined with religious pluralism because of this. Only oneform of religious pluralism, the restrictive pluralism, is compatible with theese two theories ofatonement. All forms of religious inclusivism are coherent with the classical and the objectivetheory but not with the subjective theory wich is much more compatible with religious pluralism.

    The aesthetic turn: Exploring the religious dimensions of digital technology2016In: Approaching Religion, E-ISSN 1799-3121, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 156-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The arena for developing digital technology has undergone an aesthetic turn, broadening the focus from a functionalist approach producing centralized systems in the 1970s and 1980s to an increased awareness of the aesthetic aspects of the individual user’s interaction with technology in the 1990s and 2000s. Within the academic research fields studying digital technology (e.g. Human-Computer Interaction and Interaction Design) the aesthetic turn has resulted in a shift from a strong emphasis on user behaviour to an increased interest in aesthetic perspectives on the role of the designer, the design process, and the design material. Within these fields, aesthetics has often been interpreted as belonging to the realm of the individual; personal experiences such as pleasure, engagement, and emotions have been emphasized in both technology development and technology research. Aesthetics is not, however, only an individual phenomenon but also has relational and structural components that need to be acknowledged. Structural aspects of aesthetics condition the possibilities for individuals interacting with digital technology. Thus, the tension between individual and relational aspects of aesthetics in digital technology also reflects a tension between freedom and limitation; between change and permanence; between destabilizing and stabilizing forces. Such a broadened understanding of aesthetics offers a model of digital technology that roughly corresponds to Mark C. Taylor’s definition of religion. Taylor argues that religion is constituted by, on the one hand, a figuring moment characterized by structural stability and universality, and, on the other hand, a disfiguring moment characterized by disruption, particularity, and change. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the aesthetic turn and Taylor’s definition of religion to illustrate similarities between the two, suggesting possible religious dimensions of digital technology and how that can inform our understanding of people’s interaction with digital technology.

    Liknelsernas dubbla budskap om kvinnor: En narrativ-kritisk och feministisk studie av tre liknelser i Lukasevangeliet med kvinnliga huvudkaraktärer2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen analyseras hur kvinnorna framställs i de tre liknelserna i Lukasevangeliet med kvinnliga huvudkaraktärer: Lukas 13:20-21; 15:8-10; 18:1-8. Genom att analysera liknelsernas presentation av kvinnor är målet att nå fram till ett ställningstagande kring hur kvinnorna framställs i dessa. Förhoppningen är också att uppsatsen ska leda fram till insikter som kan bidra till den större diskussionen kring Lukasevangeliets övergripande kvinnobild. 

    Analysen sker med en narrativ-kritisk metod. Med olika narrativ-kritiska verktyg analyseras textens berättarteknik, för att se vad som lyfts fram och tonas ned, samt hur detta påverkar framställningen av kvinnorna. I analysen används också ett feministiskt perspektiv. Detta perspektiv bygger på att problematisera och visa på förhållanden mellan kön och makt, samt en vilja att förändra ojämlika maktförhållanden mellan könen. Med detta perspektiv utförs en analys av texterna som inte förbiser kvinnofientliga inslag i texten, men samtidigt försöker överkomma dessa kvinnofientliga inslag på ett befriande sätt. Analysen av de tre liknelserna sätts sedan i relation till varandra, för att studera likheter och skillnader mellan dessa.

    Uppsatsen argumenterar för att liknelserna förmedlar ett dubbelt budskap om kvinnor. I liknelserna framställs de kvinnliga karaktärerna som subjekt, deras agerande lyfts fram och värderas högt. Detta genom att kvinnorna framställs som ett ideal, eller används som en bild för det gudomliga. Samtidigt innehåller Lukas 13:20-21 och 15:8-10 könsspecifika uppdelningar där kvinnor begränsas till den privata sfären i hemmet. Detta leder till argumentet att det inte är rimligt att anta att Lukasevangeliet som helhet skulle presentera en enhetlig föreställning om kvinnor.

    Uppsatsen undersöker hur Jesu mor Maria karaktäriseras i Lukas- och Markusevangeliet. I Lukasevangeliet inleds karaktäriseringen av Maria med jungfrufödelsen, denna finns inte med i Markusevangeliet. I uppsatsen undersöks därför vad jungfrufödeslen har för betydelse för karaktäriseringen av Maria i Lukasevangeliet, genom en jämförelse med Markusevangeliet.

    Breaching Civilisation: Iconoclasms of the Taliban Regime and the Islamic State2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores the changed perception of what value material cultural heritage has, and to whom it is valuable. This is done by examining how the western world’s media coverage of iconoclastic activities changed over the course of fifteen years [2001—2015]. The research explains how the material cultural heritage [MCH] is given values as a manifestation of a collective identity per Assmann’s theory of cultural memory. Through critical discourse analysis [CDA], this essay explores how these theories result in a few liberally democratic countries ascribes so called sacred values to the values of MCH, merging these values with a collective identity. This is then set in relation to Isak Svensson’s theories of conflict resolution, with focus of sacralisation of conflict, and how MCH has increasingly become sacralised issues of conflict.

    The results are that the media’s discourse have increased the number of instances where the MCH’s value originate from the principle communication. This result suggests a dominant discourse where MCH is viewed as communicating globalist ideals rather than storing a heritage valued because of its historical identity and historical data.

    Because of this, there is less likelihood of desacralisation when MCH are issues of conflict. This since the MCH is consistently valued as manifestations of a sacred value attributable to an international community, rather than local cultures and their identities. The essay argues that because valuing MCH as communicative is much like viewing them as implementations of perceived universal rights, human right. MCH is therefore become symbolically loaded. This results in it becoming targeted by iconoclastic activities as they are perceived as antithetical communicative units to the iconoclasts sacred values.

    From Ancients to Dust...: Through Veneration and Condemnation: Exploring of the role of Cultural Heritage and Iconoclasm2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay attempts to discover a correlation between a perceived veneration of an inherent value of the cultural heritage which is enlightened in the face of the iconoclastic acts of IS (Islamic State). Firstly, the essay establishes how UNESCO could be perceived as a Social System which educates its central binary codes through communication. The codes central to the System are cultural preservation and cultural destruction. Through examining the official documents of the System and analysing their content through Content Analysis, the essay delineates how an inherent value is manifested in cultural heritage. Further it examines whether the System is successful in communicating and implementing its positive binary code into its surrounding environment. The conclusions are that the System aspires to connect what it deems an “outstanding universal value” with an inherent value of democratic human rights. It is also concluded that the System is successful in implementing its positive core binary code into its environment. However, there are indications that this efficiency could dramatically decrease in the future, thereby rendering the System’s value as an ideological standpoint less valuable in the face of theologically motivated iconoclasms.

    Contemplation et dialogue: Quelques exemples de dialogue entre spiritualités après le concile Vatican II : [examples of spiritualities in dialogue emerging after the Second Vatican Council]1998Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the latter half of the 20th century interreligious dialogue has become a necessary and important feature in human co-existence. This study discusses the dialogue of religious experience. The essentials in this dialogue are mutual understandings of prayer and contemplation as practiced in differing religious and cultural contexts.

    The dissertation consists of four parts. The first is a survey of missiological theology on interreligious dialogue, contemplation and inculturation in the Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council.

    The second part considers initiatives taken in dialogue in the Benedictine Order from early 1960-ties to mid 1990-ties. Attention is given to "East-West Spiritual Exchange" which has taken place regularly between European participants in "Dialogue Interreligieux Monastique" and Zen Buddhists in Japan.

    The third section focuses on Japan. Three Japanese Catholic theologians are discussed. In efforts to establish theological and pastoral communication with Zen tradition, moving towards an integration of details emerging from Zen practice to Catholic spirituality, the Japanese theologians theologize in a fashion similar to the Benedictines.

    The final section analyses initiatives in dialogue of religious experience discussed in the thesis. Key concepts draw attention to distinctive characteristics of specific expressions in dialogue, partly in monastic contexts, partly in Japanese contexts. Because the particular form of dialogue presented is an ongoing process which has only recently commenced, no final results in developments can yet be identified. Suffice it to state that initiatives described are new inputs in Catholic missiological study. Both Benedictine and Japanese theologians have in many ways paved the way for official Catholic theology on interreligious dialogue.

    Kristnas tal om Gud i ljuset av feministisk kritik2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to examine how Christians can and should speak about God if they take feminist criticism seriously. This purpose concerns two problems: the first starts with the proposition that God is essentially different from humans and things and at the fact that the language that we use to describe and speak about God is a human language. God is infinite, incorporeal, and timeless, while the human language normally is used to apply to finite, corporeal, and temporal things. How – if ever – can this language apply to God? To examine this problem further, I present four different theories of religious language.

    The second problem is actualized by feminists who criticize the standard within the Christian tradition to characterize God in predominantly masculine terms. Feminists have criticised religious language for being oppressive in several ways, and particularly to establish and maintain hierarchical structures in which women are subordinated men. In this essay I present and discuss feminist criticism of religious language and then distinguish four different strategies for feminists. I further examine three of these strategies, represented by Sallie McFague, Gail Ramshaw and Janet Soskice, dealing with the problem of religious language within the Christian tradition. In all three of these feminist strategies metaphors are found to be of great importance.

    Finally, I promote Soskice metaphor theory combined with an apophatic theory of language. Soskice stresses the importance of anthropomorphous metaphors and offer the possibility of using both male and female images when speaking about God. This strategy positively handles the proposition of God as essentially different but makes it possible for believers to refer to God (through metaphors). This is also the preferable strategy in line with feminist criticism.

    "the face of humanity can no longer be the face of one particular man": Bidrag från en feministisk religionsfilosofi till det filosofiska samtalet om religiös mångfald2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen syfte är att undersöka mötet mellan feministisk religionsfilosofi och frågan om religiös mångfald. Utgångspunkten för uppsatsen är religionsfilosofiska texter av Pamela Sue Anderson och Grace Jantzen och dessa texter får här representera och ligga till grund för en feministisk religionsfilosofi. Som representant för det filosofiska samtalet om religiös mångfald använder jag mig av Mikael Stenmarks översikt över den typologi som präglar det filosofiska samtalet om religiös mångfald. Uppsatsens frågeställning lyder: Vad kan en feministisk religionsfilosofi som tar sin utgångspunkt i Grace Jantzens och Pamela Sue Andersons religionsfilosofiska texter bidra med till det filosofiska samtalet om religiös mångfald?

    Genom att läsa Andersons och Jantzens litteratur svarar jag för det första på hur en feministisk religionsfilosofi som tar sin utgångspunkt i Andersons och Jantzens texter skulle kunna se ut. För det andra undersöker jag hur en feministisk religionsfilosofi förhåller sig till det filosofiska samtalets typologi (exklusivism, inklusivism och pluralism) vad gäller religiös mångfald. Slutligen svarar jag på vad en feministisk religionsfilosofi kan bidra med till det filosofiska samtalet om religiös mångfald. Ett första bidrag kan innebära en medvetenhet och erfarenhet om mångfalden som finns ibland oss. Ett andra bidrag kan innebära en diskurskritik och en medvetenhet av att religionen inte går att separera från samhälleliga normer och diskurser. Ett tredje bidrag kan handla om fantasi och föreställningsförmåga som strategi.

    På grund av globalisering, migration och kommunikation som snabbt tar oss över jordklotet uppstår möten mellan människor med olika erfarenheter, traditioner, kulturer och religioner. Detta innebär nya utmaningar som inte bör lösas genom att dela in människor i påstått homogena grupper och försöka lösa konflikter och oenighet mellan dessa grupper. Den feministiska religionsfilosofin med dess utmaningar - att granska maktstrukturer, söka alternativa bilder och våga göra nya tolkningar av religioners funktioner och betydelser i ljuset av feministisk teori - riktar blicken mot mellanmänskliga relationer, oavsett religionstillhörighet.

    The Purpose of Romans2022Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study determines the purpose of Paul’s Letter to the Romans, a purpose that does justice to the content and the flow of argument as well as to the syntactic structure of the letter text. The overall approach is to conduct a particularly close reading and detailed analysis of the introductory and concluding parts of Romans. Based on these analyses and a reconstruction of the historical and social context, a preliminary thesis of the letter purpose will be formulated. The thesis will then be tested and assessed to determine if it is reasonable against the flow of argument and the line of thought in the letter body at large.

    The detailed analyses of the introductory and concluding parts will be performed in two steps for each part. First, a close reading and detailed analyses to understand the textual arrangement and the content in each part. Second, a study of what observations can be perceived from the content and flow of argument that provide information about the purpose. 

    The thesis is then tested and assessed against the content and flow of argument in the letter body at large, and what can be noted that are in line with the thesis, what arguments run against the thesis, and what additional observations have a direct impact on the thesis.

    The conclusion is that Paul writes the Letter to the Romans as an apostle of God and Jesus Christ to proclaim the good news among all the nations. The good news is for all people, both Jews and gentiles. The good news both includes doctrinal statements and requires an ethical response from the believers in Christ. The previous work in the East is coming to an end. Paul wishes to work with the addressees in Rome in his coming mission to the West, a work that first begins in Rome and the area around, and eventually leads all the way to Spain. Paul in a way begins his future apostolic work in Rome by sending the letter, which will continue when he comes in person to the capital of the Roman Empire.
