Brill Research Perspectives in Theology covers state of the art analyses and critical studies in major and emerging fields in systematic, practical, historical, and intercultural theology. It provides the most up-to-date research written by a leading theologian in the field.
Each issue consists of 50 to 100 pages, including an annotated bibliography. Topics range from theologians and specific periods in the history of theology to recent trends and themes in contemporary theology, from confessional traditions to methodological debates, from classic doctrinal themes to current developments in theology and society. The Brill Research Perspectives in Theology is an invaluable resource for scholars wishing to draw on the latest theological research, as well as a dynamic resource for teaching and for students of theology and related fields.
The Editors of this series take 'Catholic Theology' to be theology that reflects on themes in systematic theology, moral theology and historical theology as these have presented or now present themselves in the Roman Catholic tradition. Moreover, Brill’s Studies in Catholic Theology includes studies that contribute to the theology of the one, holy, apostolic and Catholic Church as confessed in the Nicene Creed (as opposed to theologies of particular churches and traditions). Manuscripts published in the series will mainly be either studies on the history of Catholic theology that are relevant for the present time or constructive contributions to the articulation of Catholic theology for today. We aim at publishing high-quality academic monographs by established scholars, coherent volumes of essays and excellent PhD dissertations.

This is a new series with an average of 1,5 volumes per year.

In der mittelalterlichen Theologie waren die "Mysterien des Lebens Jesu" ein großes christologisches Thema. Es ging dabei um die theologische Substanz, wie sie sich im Gedächtnis der Feste und der Frömmigkeit anschaulich verankert hatten.

New Materialism and Theology reflects on questions of human embodiment, nonhuman agency, technological innovation, and what really matters now and in possible futures. Bringing theological inquiry together with the philosophical movement of new materialism, Sam Mickey points toward a variety of ways for thinking about matter and everything that materializes in human and more-than-human worlds. Mickey provides introductory definitions and historical context for understanding the relationship between various theological and materialist ideas and practices. He examines the self-declared novelty and materiality of new materialism, noting the limitations of those labels while articulating the very new and quite material challenges that new materialism does indeed pose, challenges of urgent existential importance that demand theological responses. New Materialism and Theology faces the theological implications and material possibilities facing humanity while ecological and technological realities seem to be pointing toward posthuman or transhuman futures or perhaps something else entirely.
Mit diesem ersten Band erfolgt die dogmatische Grundlegung der ostkirchlichen Theologie, Anthropologie und Spiritualität.
Die Studien zur ostkirchlichen Theologie und Spiritualität sind auf mehrere Bände hin angelegt. Was ein weiterer Band zu den praktischen Vollzügen geistlichen Lebens entfaltet, findet hier im ersten Teil seine theologische Grundlegung. Dabei werden zentrale Themen der abendländischen Geistes- und Theologiegeschichte bedacht und in Vergleich gesetzt mit dem östlichen Denkansatz, teils unter Berücksichtigung von Einzelfragen, die in der gegenwärtigen Dogmatik behandelt werden (z.B. Schriftauslegung, Traditionsverständnis, christologischer Ansatz, eucharistische Ekklesiologie, Leben nach dem Tod). Das Buch möchte eine Gesamtdarstellung orthodoxer Theologie sein.

Abstract

This work articulates the main problems and questions that arise at the intersection of new materialism and theology. Rather than proffering a particular framework to resolve those problems and questions, the author points toward a variety of ways for engaging with them. The text is divided into three part. Part 1 provides some introductory definitions and historical context for understanding the relationship between new materialism and theology. Part 2 examines the novelty and materiality in new materialism, questioning both categories, while enumerating very new and quite material challenges that new materialism poses to theology. The concluding part considers the theological implications and material possibilities of technological developments for facilitating posthuman or transhuman futures.

Antimanichäische Inhalte aus dem gesamten Werkkorpus Augustins werden, auch unter Berücksichtigung manichäischer Originaltexte, mit Blick auf ihr polemisches Gepräge untersucht.
Zunächst werden mit dem antimanichäischen Exkurs in Psalmenpredigt 140 und mit dem Manichäerkapitel aus Augustins Spätwerk De Haeresibus zwei bislang wenig berücksichtigte Textpassagen einer detaillierten Kommentierung unterzogen. In einem zweiten Schritt präsentiert die Autorin auf der Basis von Textanalysen antimanichäische Inhalte aus dem gesamten Werkkorpus Augustins, zu zwölf Topoi zusammengestellt. Ihnen wird jeweils die Vorstellung des „manichäischen Hintergrunds“ und argumentativer Einwände Augustins an die Seite gestellt. Spannungen zwischen Fremd- und Selbstdarstellung des Manichäismus geraten ebenso in den Blick wie Gewichtungen und Typisierungen, die Augustin als Polemiker vornimmt.
