    Church and war in the theology of Karl Barth2013In: Nederduitse Gereformeerde Teologiese Tydskrif, ISSN 0028-2006, E-ISSN 2226-2385, Vol. 54, no S 5, p. 254-263Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The issues around church and war followed Karl barth during his whole career. His most extensive and systematic discussions of war are found in the Church Dogmatics. Here he questions the naturalness of war and develops a theologically motivated understanding of the practical primacy of pacifism for the disciples of Christ. However, his discussion of possible exceptions qualifies the main line of his argument to such an extent that the latter loses most of its content. His practical imagination was shaped by established semi-national churches and by his native Switzerland. This disjunction between his central theological account and his practical reasoning helps explain why his thoughts on war have been used by proponents of radically different positions. What is lacking is a display of the sort of church life and practice this kind of thinking presupposes. This is true whether one emphasises the main pacifist argument or develops barth’s thought in the direction of the just war tradition.

    Deprive them of their pathos: Karl Barth and the Nazi Revolution Revisited2007In: Modern Theology, ISSN 0266-7177, Vol. 23, p. 369-391Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of Karl Barth's theology during the church struggle after the Nazi revolution in 1933 has been endlessly debated. I argue, first, that there is more continuity between “1925”, “1933”, and “1938” than most commentators have granted and that Barth never promoted an apolitical option. Second, I maintain that his theological imagination was restrained by the practices and structures of German (and European) Protestantism and his own acceptance at this time of a Christendom order. The church that his theology presupposed did not really exist.

    Historiography and Theology: Theology in the Weimar Republic and the Beginning of the Third Reich2007In: Kirchliche Zeitgeschichte, ISSN 0932-9951, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 155-180Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The interpretation of the different roles played by Christian theology during the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich is deeply intertwined with current understandings of the nature and role of church and theology. This article is a critical discussion of the attempt of the “Munich school” centered around Trutz Rendtorff to liberate Protestant liberalism from the history writing of Karl Barth and the Barthian tradition. It discusses concrete issues of historiography dealing with Barth and liberal Protestants such as Ernst Troeltsch, Emanuel Hirsch, and Martin Rade, at the same time as it discusses how historiography is interrelated with theology, sociology, and politics.

    Neuroethics as a Brain-Based Philosophy of Life: The Case of Michael S. Gazzaniga2009In: Neuroethics, ISSN 1874-5490, E-ISSN 1874-5504, ISSN 1874-5504 (online), Vol. 2, no 1, p. 3-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Michael S. Gazzaniga, a pioneer and world leader in cognitive neuroscience, has made an initial attempt to develop neuroethics into a brain-based philosophy of life that he hopes will replace the irrational religious and political belief-systems that still partly govern modern societies. This article critically examines Gazzaniga’s proposal and shows that his actual moral arguments have little to do with neuroscience. Instead, they are based on unexamined political, cultural and moral conceptions, narratives and values. A more promising way of interpreting the belief-forming system of the brain is to say that we cannot avoid thinking in terms of wider frameworks and narratives that are socially embedded and historically developed; consequently, any moral discussion has to be in terms of these frameworks and narratives.

    Science as salvation: George Lakoff and Steven Pinker as secular political theologians2012In: Modern Theology, ISSN 0266-7177, E-ISSN 1468-0025, Vol. 28, no 2, p. 197-228Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article critically analyzes two leading cognitive scientists, George Lakoff and Steven Pinker, as competing secular political “theologians”. The idea of Science as savior is at the heart of the set of stories modernity tells about itself. The modern world, it is assumed, has left the age of religion and reached the age of Science. Lakoff and Pinker, who advocate opposing moral and political worldviews, make their claims on the basis of their scientific work, but it is implicit narratives and ontologies that give force to their broader views about morality and politics.

    'the curious fact that … the Lord always puts us on the just side': Reinhold Niebuhr, America, and Christian realism2012In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 66, no 1, p. 41-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Theologian Reinhold Niebuhr has had and still has an exceptionally large influence on American political thinking. The nation-state, in his case primarily the USA, was throughout his career both the main context and the primary object for his thinking. Christian faith, he thinks, is validated by its ability to interpret human reality, including the world of nations. However, this article argues that Niebuhr fails to show the descriptive power of Christian faith. This has to do with both an inadequate understanding of theological rationality and a weak ecclesiology.

    Att bevara traditionen i skrift: En jämförande studie mellan ”den västliga” kodex Bezae Cantabrigiensis och den Alexandrinska kodex Vaticanus2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The field of New Testament textual criticism is a vast area with a multitude of manuscripts to examine. Codex Bezae Cantabrigiensis (hereafter referred to as D) is one of the most diverse manuscripts and has fascinated scholars for centuries with its many peculiar and notable read-ings. Where, in textual criticism, the Alexandrian text-type is the normative, D is a landmark within the “Western” text-type. This thesis examines D by collating it and one of the Alexan-drian text-type’s most attested manuscripts, codex Vaticanus (hereafter B). The collation is done using Nestle-Aland’s critical edition Novum Testamentum Graece 28 ed., because of its critical apparatus. However, due to the size of the critical apparatus the collation involves only the Gospel of John. The aim of this thesis is to search for readings in D that could indicate what context it was written in and, further, finding what tradition lies behind D. For this purpose, a database has been constructed, containing all differences between the manuscripts, classified according to types of differences and the parts of speech they involve.This thesis argues that D clarifies many of the readings of the Gospel of John with stylistic and narrative techniques, such as narrative explanations and the addition of prepositions, accu-satives, genitives and reflexive pronouns. Thus, implicit structures are avoided. Because of said clarifications this thesis argues that D was written in an environment where it was necessary to clarify uncertain aspects of the storyline. It is proposed that while Greek was the main language in the context where D was written it was not the first language of the scribe, and dialects may have affected the language in D.This thesis also argues that D reinforces the perception of the story. The Gospel of John uses the perfect tense more often than any of the other gospels, which results in the story often being perceived as ongoing rather than finished, as would be the perception of the reader. D has reinforced this tendency and also avoids theological utterances applicable to anybody, conse-quently keeping the perception in the gospel that of the story. Some passages in D also show that D has incorporated thinking from the synoptic gospels and created its own tradition.In summary, this thesis argues that some of D’s differences in comparison to B are related to provisions made for needs present in the context it was written in.

    Empiri och teori i ecklesiologiska studier belysta genom "den nya kyrkosynen" och "den tjänsteinriktade folkkyrkosynen"2015In: Svensk teologisk kvartalskrift, ISSN 0039-6761, Vol. 91, no 3, p. 90-100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article begins with a description of how ecclesiological research within Practical Theology (PT) has changed over time. By a critical analysis of the ecclesiologies "the new view of the Church" (den nya kyrkosynen), and "the service-centric view of the Folk Church" (den tjänsteinriktade folkkyrkosynen), the use of empirics and theory in church research and its impact on church practices is problematized. While "the empirical turn" in the 1960’s became associated with PT, the empirical turn in Sweden instead developed within the social sciences of religion. One underlying possible factor for this development was a predominant scientific view that emphasized the difference between descriptive and normative science. Theology was criticized for resting on metaphysical assumptions and theologians reacted by making a clear distinction between what they saw as "scientific" and "Church" theology. Hence, theory and practice came to be separated. On the basis of the two ecclesiologies both a "top-down perspective" without empirical approach in Church research, and a typical "bottom-up perspective" without a theologically normative approach are problematized. The conclusion emphasizes the importance of intradisciplinary research for dynamic interaction between empirical analysis and theological interpretation, and interaction between induction and deduction that allows continuous interplay between theory and empiricism. This enables a critical attitude to be maintained both to the Church practice that is empirically analyzed, and to the ecclesiological theories by which analysis and interpretation are made.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to analyze the ecclesiology implicit in the documents Teologiska grundprinciper för arbetet i 2006 års kyrkohandboksgrupp [Basic Theological Principles for the work in the Church manual group of 2006] and Mässans grundordning [Basic order of the Mass]. These documents, composed on behalf of the Church of Sweden's Church board, are intended as the basis for a new church servicemanual in 2015. By means of ecclesiological theories drawn from Avery Dulles and Alexander Schmemann, I analyze the documents in the light of the Swedish Folk Church tradition. A shift over time in this tradition is described, from the understanding of the Church as "Church for the people", to the Church as "the people's Church". My underlying hypothesis is that this shift has generated a dualism where two different aspects of the church have drifted apart, namely, with Dulles' terminology, the Church as "a mystical communion of grace" and the Church as "a network of friendly interpersonal relationships". In this process, the latter has come to dominate. This pattern is revealed in Basic order of the Mass, in which frame and content tend to be separated. The dualism also stands out in the Basic Theological Principles in terms of the identity and role of the Church. Finally, I offer a discussion of this dualism inspired by Schmemann’s account of the Church and secularism, and I remark on the lack of understanding of the Church as "body of Christ" in later Lutheran perceptions of sacrament.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to discuss contemporary perspectives on preaching and worship in the Church of Sweden. The starting point of the analysis is venia concionandi (permission to preach) and the way the organization of lay preaching changed in connection with the relational change between church and state in 2000. The article continues with a discussion about a changed understanding of the doctrine of the priesthood of all believers and its possible implications for the way we perceive preaching and worship. The discussion relates to research by Swedish theologians Henry Cöster and Ragnar Persenius, together with Timothy J. Wengert who provides perspectives from international Luther research. The general ecclesiological pattern that the article brings to the fore indicates that the understanding of the church as a community in the Word has lost ground. The position of preaching in the contemporary Swedish folk church can thus be seen as weakened. This raises the question of what long-term consequences this will have with regard to the Lutheran tradition’s understanding of the preaching of the gospel as constitutive for the church.

    Svenska kyrkan samma kyrka?: ecklesiologi före och efter relationsförändringen mellan kyrka och stat2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is an ecclesiological study, conducted in the form of a case study that examines worship praxis in six parishes in the diocese of Luleå between 1990 and 2009. The specific research problem of the dissertation is whether the organizational changes that took place in connection with the relational change between Church and State in 2000 are reflected in local worship and in church service related decisions in diocese and parishes, and how the concrete relationship between worship praxis and regulations is manifested. The research problem also includes what ecclesiological impact the organizational changes may have had in the studied parishes and what the empirical results can reveal about the ecclesiality of the Church. The dissertation addresses four research questions. In response to the first question: “Are the organizational changes of 2000 reflected in local worship and in worship related decisions in dioceses and parishes and, if so, in what way?” it is noted that organizational change is reflected indirectly in expressions of growing autonomization. In response to the second question "What is the relationship between worship praxis and regulations in the Church ordinance and The Swedish Church manual 1986?” there is a tangible difference between worship praxis and regulations throughout the studied period, i.e. even before the relational change, although the difference over time has increased. Regarding the third question "What impact could the organizational change, associated with the relational change between the Church of Sweden and the State, have had on the ecclesiologies in the worship praxis which the studied parishes represent and hold?” I have not found that the new order has affected, in any direct way, the parishes’ implicit ecclesiologies during the time span covered by the study. Rather, it seems that the Church ordinance that was established at the time of the relational change has reinforced an already existing implicit ecclesiology where the parishes are considered to be autonomous. The fourth question "How can the empirical result be interpreted theologically with regard to its implicit ecclesiology, and what does that say about the ecclesiality of the Church of Sweden?” The theological interpretation of autonomization indicates an overall "immanent ecclesiology", which can be visualized in current praxis in the diocese of Luleå. The ambition that the Church of Sweden despite organizational change in the year 2000 would be the same also indicates a similar implicit ecclesiology. This is because the Church was not thought to change its identity despite being subjected to a revision in form. The study shows that the arsenal of theories and the methodical approach have implications for how much can be clarified and that different ways of studying the Church should be combined. The present study is an example of this by the study's abductive approach and exploratory character, which have allowed both interaction between praxis-related empiricism and theory and interaction between descriptive analysis and hermeneutic interpretation. The study also shows that “ordo-related theories” may be applicable to the study of the Church as an organizational structure.

    The aim of this article is to discuss the current legislation, and power structures in and between different levels of the Church of Sweden in terms of church–state relations and secularisation, with the help of theories from sociology of religion and ecclesiology drawn from José Casanova, Grace Davie and Avery Dulles. With themes from Lutheran theology, including the two regiments and the common priesthood of all believers, we analyse the current legislation and power structures from the perspective of the so-called ‘dual line of responsibility’. The underlying hypothesis is that the structures of the former state church are still deciding the power structures in the Church of Sweden. This creates obscurity concerning the role of the church in public society and negatively affects the ecclesiastical development of the church now that it has lost its earlier status as a state church.

    En bild säger mer än tusen ord: Analys av gudabilder i religionsläroböcker2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Images in swedish schoolbooks for religions studies in secondary school will be analysed in this essay. The purpose of the essay is to review and analyse how iconic and aniconic images of gods within hinduism are presented in images from textbooks that are produced since the new swedish policy documents (Lgr11) were introduced. The intent with the analyse is to find if the images represent a domestic perspective (hindu iconography) or an oriental perspective. The results from that will then be compared to how the swedish school policies about religion education present that iconic and aniconic images of gods within hinduism should be mediated in religious studies. The essay includes semiotic analyses of the images and analyse of the belonging texts, also an analyse of the policy documents. The results shows that the images in the schoolbooks meet the hindu iconography, while the text and explanations that comes with the images have an oriental perspective. The result also shows that the images meet the school documents guidelines but there is a lack of information and facts. This may affect the students ability to properly understand what hindusim is from a domestic perspective and will instead continue the be influenced with an oriental perspective.

    Religionskunskap i gymnasial undervisning: En studie av styrdokumenten och den praktiska hanteringen av dem2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna studie undersöks hur gymnasielärare använder sig av styrdokument för att utforma den gymnasiala religionsundervisningen. Syftet med studien är att undersöka vilka religioner och livsåskådningar som lyfts fram i den gymnasiala religionsundervisningen, både i styrdokumentets skrivningar och i den praktiska hanteringen av dem. Ytterligare en del handlar om att undersöka bakgrunden till varför just dessa religioner och livsåskådningar lyfts fram som centrala.Studien innehåller både analys av dokument och intervjuer med religionslärare på gymnasieskolor. Resultaten visar att det finns vissa religioner som utmärks i styrdokumenten och att dokumenten öppnar upp för en möjlighet att i praktiken lyfta fram andra religioner i undervisningen. Detta är något som lärare själva bestämmer över i tid och utrymme. Resultaten visar även att informanternas undervisning överensstämmer väl med styrdokumentens riktlinjer och mål.

    Gay sexuality is seen as a great sin and consequently punishable in several countries in parts of the Muslim community’s. Homosexual persons are being subjected to related violence and dignity because of the expression of their gender, sexuality or honorary norms. The purpose of this paper is to find out how homosexual Muslims living in the city of Umeå unite their sexual orientation with their beliefs and see if they believe Islam as a religious obstacle   or if there are other cultural phenomena that prevent them from ”coming out”

    Motivation och religionskunskap: En intervjustudie om motivationsarbete inom religionsämne på gymnasiet2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is that I want to find out how teachers can go about creatingmotivation and engagement in the subject of religious knowledge. This survey is based onfive qualitative interviews with teachers. All teachers teach religious studies on uppersecondary school in Sweden.The results showed that all teachers felt that the students' motivation and commitment tothe subject of religion is low and that the majority of the students do not experiencereligious knowledge as interesting to study. To make religious studies interesting forstudents the teaching should be based on the students' thoughts about life and should bestudent-centered. The majority of the students who consider that they do not benefit fromthe subject are students who should not study further at a university. In motivationalresearch one usually calls that there is no idea of the target pursuit of the individual andthat the students do not need reward and verbal praise, which leads to the pupils becomingreasonably motivated who then leads to internal motivated of the students. Motivationresearch means that teachers should seek for to, strengthen students 'inherent motivationby giving them praise and confirmation with the aim of strengthening students' selfconfidenceto cope with the school taskReligious didactics mean that it is important for teachers to have a purpose in theirteaching by starting from the didactic basic questions what, how and why teach religion, tomaking the subject interesting for students. Religious didactics also mean that teachersshould give room to start from the students' thoughts on life and give the students freedomto discuss thoughts about life in relation to religion.
