English summary: How does the Asian bishop Irenaeus of Lyon respond to the Gnostic challenge? What is the role of Johannine theology in his answer, and how does he allude to and explain Johannine verses or words? In giving a theological and philological commentary on the third book of Adversus Haereses, the author attempts to find an answer to these questions. In the first Christian approach to a systematic theology, the church father of the second century deals with the questions of the unity of God, Christ, creation, incarnation and salvation. In all these topics, Irenaeus bases his theories substantially on the Corpus Johanneum and Johannine theology. It is his opinion that the Gospel according to John, the Apocalypse and the Epistles of John were all written by John of Ephesus, the disciple of the Lord, as he calls him. German description: Im dritten Band seines hauptsachlich gegen valentinianische Erkenntnis (Gnosis) und gegen Markion gerichteten Hauptwerkes - es ist zugleich die erste Dogmatik der Kirche - zeigt der sudgallische Bischof von Lyon um 185 n.Chr., wie mit Hilfe des Corpus Johanneum wesentliche theologische Herausforderungen der Gnosis biblisch-theologisch beantwortet werden konnen. Dies betrifft hermeneutische Fragen nach Schrift und Tradition ebenso wie die zentralen Fragen nach Gott und nach Jesus Christus. Thematisch wird dies anhand der Einheit Gottes, seinem Schopfersein, der Inkarnation und der Soteriologie aufgezeigt. Dabei ist Irenaus der erste Autor, der mit hoher Wortlautgenauigkeit und unter ausdrucklichem Hinweis auf die Quelle zitiert und so als erster eine biblisch-heilsgeschichtliche Theologie entwirft. Bernhard Mutschler untersucht Aufbau und Einheit des dritten Buches sowie die verschiedene Reihenfolge der Evangelien bei Irenaus. Er kommentiert alle bisher identifizierten sowie neu aufgefundenen Bezugnahmen auf das Evangelium nach Johannes, die Johannesbriefe und die Johannesapokalypse.

Glaube in den Pastoralbriefen

Pistis als Mitte christlicher Existenz

English summary: The Pastoral Epistles speak more than other early Christian scriptures about faith ( pistis ), and they do it differently than Paul does. An interpretation of all the records of faith (pistis word family) shows that the scope of pistis in the Corpus Pastorale is huge. On the one hand, it is a primary word, framing all references of Christian life, and on the other hand it is completely determined by the relation to Christ and/or God. Thus faith has an integrating character, and at the same time it indicates the center of Christian existence. At the beginning of this first monograph about faith in the Pastoral Epistles, the author examines some fundamental terms, such as faith, pistis, fides/credere as well as the Corpus Pastorale, the Pastoral Epistles or the TritoPaulines. German description: Vom Glauben (Pistis) ist in den Pastoralbriefen in vielfachen Kontexten und mehr als in anderen fruhchristlichen Schriften die Rede. Trotz des sehr engen Anschlusses an Paulus sind aber z.B. nicht die Werke des Gesetzes als Gegensatz im Blick. Eine Auslegung samtlicher Belege zeigt, dass Pistis im Corpus Pastorale eine grosse Breite aufweist: Glaube bildet einerseits eine Art Rahmenbegriff und Grundwort fur das Christliche uberhaupt und bleibt andererseits christologisch bestimmt; er bildet die Grundrelation zwischen Gott und Mensch und stellt eine belastbare Basis der Gemeinschaft dar. Pistis hat integrierenden Charakter und bezeichnet die Mitte christlicher Existenz . Zu Beginn der bisher einzigen Monographie zum Thema untersucht Bernhard Mutschler die Begriffe Glaube/glauben, Pistis/pisteuein, fides/credere sowie Pastoralbriefe, Corpus Pastorale und Tritopaulinen ausfuhrlich.

Hippokrates und die Heilenergie

Alte und neue Modelle für eine holistische Therapeutik

Es besteht ein Defizit an dynamischen interpersonellen Theorien, die das subtile Geschehen und Spannungsfeld zwischen Menschen ausleuchten und Grundlage für einen Dialog zwischen somatischer Medizin und anderen heilenden Erfahrungen sein könnten. Diese Phänomene müssten eine Sprache erhalten, die wir verstehen, die unserem Bewusstseinsstand angemessen ist, sich mit unserem Wesen und Lebenssinn befasst und uns bis ins Innerste berührt. Die Autorin hat auf der Suche nach Heilwissen die Schriften der hippokratischen Tradition untersucht, ahnend, dass die alten Weisheitslehren vielleicht Schlüssel zum Verständnis unserer aktuellen Nöte werden könnten. Das alte Wissen wird verbunden mit aktuellen Strömungen der Heilkunde, besonders der Psychotherapie. Dadurch werden neue Heilressourcen und unbekannte Erfahrungsweisen vom Menschsein erschlossen. Die Studie stellt Modelle einer energetischen Heilkunde dar, die von der somatischen zu unterscheiden ist. Schwerpunkte sind die alte Diätetik als Wissenschaft von den Umwelteinflüssen, die Energiegesetze des Heilens, die subtile Diagnostik, die Säftelehre als Prozessphasen und die bis auf den heutigen Tag erhaltene Temperamentenlehre als umfassende Typologie. Der hippokratische Eid wird als Initiationsritual gedeutet. In ihm liegt eine Botschaft aus unseren kulturellen Wurzeln an unsere heutige Kultur. Die Vollendung heilenden Wirkens führt in die Spiritualität. Es zeigen sich Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten für die Therapeutik auf subtilste Weise.

The Framing of Sacred Space

The Canopy and the Byzantine Church

The Framing of Sacred Space offers the first topical study of canopies as essential spatial and symbolic units in Byzantine-rite churches. Centrally planned columnar structures--typically comprised of four columns and a roof--canopies had a critical role in the modular processes of church design, from actual church furnishings in the shape of a canopy to the church's structural core. As architectonic objects of basic structural and design integrity, canopies integrate an archetypical image of architecture and provide means for an innovative understanding of the materialization of the idea of the Byzantine church and its multi-focal spatial presence. The Framing of Sacred Space considers both the material and conceptual framing of sacred space and explains how the canopy bridges the physical and transcendental realms. As a crucial element of church design in the Byzantine world, a world that gradually abandoned the basilica as a typical building of Roman imperial secular architecture, the canopy carried tectonic and theological meanings and, through vaulted, canopied bays and recognizable Byzantine domed churches, established organic architectural, symbolic, and sacred ties between the Old and New Covenants. In such an overarching context, the canopy becomes an architectural parti, a vital concept and dynamic design principle that carries the essence of the Byzantine church. The Framing of Sacred Space highlights significant factors in understanding canopies through specific architectural settings and the Byzantine concepts of space, thus also contributing to larger debates about the creation of sacred space and related architectural taxonomy.

Al-Farabi and His School

Examines one of the most exciting and dynamic periods in the development of medieval Islam, from the late 9th to the early 11th century, through the thought of five of its principal thinkers, prime among them al-Farabi. This great Islamic philosopher, called 'the Second Master' after Aristotle, produced a recognizable school of thought in which others pursued and developed some of his own intellectual preoccupations. Their thought is treated with particular reference to the most basic questions which can be asked in the theory of knowledge or epistemology. The book thus fills a lacuna in the literature by using this approach to highlight the intellectual continuity which was maintained in an age of flux. Particular attention is paid to the ethical dimensions of knowledge.

How space is owned through practices of domination that emerged through colonialism and have been sustained through capitalist social relations in a 'post-colonial' context. How Imperial power created, in Foucault's words, a 'boomerang effect' whereby the techniques developed to control and subjugate colonial subjects worked with such efficiency that they were imported back into Western societies to create new orders of control. How while new social movements such as the Zapatistas have remapped the rural and developed new ways to challenge and transform politics, Western societies have sought to reconstruct the world order through economic processes and military strategy. How the self-image of the West is shaped by its relationship with the 'Rest,' but also how the rest has found news ways of constructing identity that are now transforming the West as people, images, commodities, and meanings flow through the global economy. The cases considered cover every continent, contrast the West with the East as well as the global North with the global South, and prompt us to take history seriously in the construction of the present. Addressing the current buzzwords that have spread from geography across the social sciences and the humanities, this book will appeal to researchers and practitioners fascinated by the connections between cultural representation, power, spatiality, and how the ways we have been thinking about the world are open to question.
