Abstract

This article will look at the ideology of veganism in the AHIJ. Since the early 1970s their diet has been a core part of their ideology and of their message to the world. Acknowledging that a black/Jewish meat-free diet is far from the exclusive property of the group, let alone a new development on their part, I will argue that it is an expression of the syncretic “bricoleur” nature of Black Israelite thought (Dorman 2013), reflecting, drawing on, and transforming traditions existing in both African American and Jewish thought in and before the twentieth century – principally articulated as a concern for health in the former and a messianic return to the peaceful Edenic existence in the latter. However, Ben Ammi skillfully intertwines it into their theology by arguing that a return to the veganism of the Garden of Eden is part of the community’s redemption of humanity from primordial sin and ultimate overcoming of the curse of death.

Brill's Companions to Religious Studies, Theology and Philosophy Online is an expanding e-book collection of specially commissioned research companions. The focus is on contemporary religion, theology and philosophy. Peer reviewed and written by experts, these handbooks offer balanced accounts at an advanced level, along with an overview of the state of scholarship and a synthesis of debate, pointing the way for future research. Designed for students and scholars, the books explain what sources there are, what methodologies and approaches are appropriate in dealing with them, what issues arise and how they have been treated, and what room there is for disagreement. All volumes are in English.

“Brill’s Companions to Religious Studies, Theology and Philosophy Online offer both students and scholars a range of topics and approaches to the study of religion. Whether they seek to engage with developments and currents in established religions like Christianity or new religious movements or look for topics such as anarchism or religion and science, they will find in this series a collection of essays that will introduce them to current scholarship on that topic. With each volume a considerable resource in its own right, combined, the companions form a repository and platform of academic discussion and study, offering peer-reviewed content which covers the state of existing research, methodologies, contemporary debates, and the directions future research might or should take.”
Elisabeth Arweck, University of Warwick

“The Brill’s Companion series has established itself as one of the essential reference collections that should find a place in the library of every Religious Studies scholar. Building on state-of-play surveys on a wide variety of topics, they also point to exciting new avenues for investigation. These volumes bring together cutting edge research by both established and emerging thinkers, and are invaluable both in the classroom and the study.”
Douglas E. Cowan, Renison University College

“Brill Companions greatly expand the possibilities for the study of religions, theologies and philosophies. Individual volumes are already a remarkable resource that enrich understanding of specific complexes and arenas of debate. They are focused and expert but accessible and inspiring. Together, this online collection not only surveys the state of the field but offers rich provocations for improved approaches, methods and discussion.”
Graham Harvey, The Open University, UK

“This new Brill online series is a great resource for scholars and students, drawing on twenty outstanding handbooks of sharp, accessible essays.

Sozialethiker, Wirtschaftswissenschaftler, Politikberater, Bischof: Joseph Kardinal Höffner (1906–1987) zählt unbestritten zu den zentralen Figuren im theologisch-gesellschaftlichen Diskurs der frühen und mittleren Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Ob es unter Ludwig Erhard um die Etablierung der Sozialen Marktwirtschaft oder unter Johannes Paul II. um die Weiterentwicklung der Katholischen Soziallehre ging – stets war Höffner beteiligt, wenn es darum ging, Neuformatierungen kritisch zu begleiten und sozialethische Hintergründe präzise zu erhellen. Über mehr als vier Jahrzehnte prägte er, erst als Professor und seit 1962 als (Erz-)Bischof in Münster und Köln, gesellschaftliche und kirchliche Debattenlagen entscheidend mit.
Die Bandbreite der von Höffner behandelten Themen – u.a. Wirtschaftsethik, Fragen sozialer Gerechtigkeit, Internationale Zusammenarbeit – wirkt dabei unmittelbar auf gegenwärtige Herausforderungen: Welche Rolle muss der Staat spielen, wenn Wirtschaft im Dienst des Menschen stehen soll? Wie sollen Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftsordnung beschaffen sein, um das Attribut „gerecht“ zu verdienen? Welche Auswirkungen hat eine global vernetzte Wirtschaft auf gewachsene Strukturen im Verhältnis von Arbeitgebern und -nehmern?
Die bis 2016 in sieben Bänden erscheinenden Schriften Höffners zur Wirtschafts- und Sozialethik verfolgen nicht nur den Anspruch, über 100 seiner wichtigsten Artikel und Beiträge zugänglich zu halten, sondern gleichzeitig die Entwicklung seines Denkens in den verschiedenen Bereichen nachzuzeichnen. So enthalten die Bände unter anderem auch seine wissenschaftlichen Qualifikationsarbeiten, die Höffners wissenschaftliche Bildung wie auch seine Weitsicht bereits in frühen Jahren dokumentieren. Dies sind u.a. seine beiden (!) theologischen und die wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Dissertation sowie die Habilitationsschrift.
Eingeleitet werden die nach Themenfeldern geordneten Bände jeweils mit einem Essay von renommierten Expert_innen, die Höffners Schriften in ihren zeitlichen Kontext einordnen, vor allem aber zeigen, wo seine Beiträge in Diskussionen unserer Zeit ihre Wirksamkeit entfalten.

Die bewegte Biographie des Paderborner Erzbischofs Lorenz Kardinal Jaeger (1892–1975) wird unter Verwendung seines neu erschlossenen Nachlasses in einem interdisziplinären Forschungsprojekt anhand von Themenschwerpunkten erarbeitet.
Patristics have traditionally been a domain of Central and Western-European Scholars, their predilections and prejudices. As the center of Global Christianity is gradually shifting towards regions formerly considered to lie on the "margins", this long-established picture is about to change. The series Patristic Studies in Global Perspective appreciates this development. Focusing on topics of Patristic and Byzantine Theology, History and Culture from 150 A.D. to 1500 A.D Patristic Studies in Global Perspective welcomes historical, theological, philosophical and philological research, from Latin American, African, Asian, Australasian and Pacific, Eastern European and Near Eastern Scholars. As a peer-reviewed and cross-disciplinary series Patristic Studies in Global Perspective is open to academics working in the areas of history, philology, theology, philosophy and related disciplines. It is intended to publish two volumes per year. Both monographs and multi-authored volumes in English, German, French and Spanish are accepted.
