Le regioni dell’anima. Il rapporto tra fede e ragione a partire dal pensiero di G. Bontadini

Luca Grion

The relationship between faith and reason is a central issue of Christian thought. From a philosophic perspective, can we adopt a fideistic position as a start point for our arguments? To what extent can faith accept judgment of reason? Or has reason exclusively to serve Revelation?The tradition of Christian thought repeteadly focused on this question and attempted to reconcile the autonomy of rational speculation with the fidelity at the Doctrine. Within this tradition, Sergej Averincev emerges according and thanks to the strength of his metaphors and images. The Russian writer symbolize the relation between faith and reason like a...

Atene e Gerusalemme: vie del dialogo

Giovanni Grandi

Centro Studi Veneto «Jacques Maritain»Università degli Studi di Padova – Dipartimento di FilosofiaAccording to Sergej Averincev, «Athens and Jerusalem», mean «the contrast and the meeting of two creative principles».

The Hebraic-christian universe is not the prehistory of the Greek universe. It is another...

For the purpose of this presentation, the term ‘Christianity’ will be taken to mean the time and the world view of the early church, as expressed in the New Testament and other early Christian documents, which still maintain its initial Jewish characteristics. With ‘Christendom’, I will designate the...

Dietrich Bonhoeffer – Odgovornost in svoboda

Nenad H. Vitorović

S knjigo Odgovornost in svoboda (Celjska Mohorjeva družba, 2005) smo ob 60. obletnici smrti in 100. obletnici rojstva Dietricha Bonhoefferja (1906–1945) v slovenščini končno dobili prvi celovitejši izbor iz del tega izjemnega protestantskega pastorja in teologa. V čem je njegova izjemnost? Bonhoeffer, ki se ga je v petdesetih letih dvajsetega stoletja oprijel naziv teolog »nereligioznega krščanstva«, se je v splošno zgodovino vendarle zapisal predvsem kot tisti luteranski teolog, ki je bil aktivni udeleženec nemškega antifašističnega gibanja in pozneje tudi oboroženega odpora, konkretno skupine okoli Wilhelma Canarisa,...
