Hindu-Catholic Engagements in Goa: Religion, Colonialism and Modernity

By: Alexander Henn

Price: $14.65

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Orient BlackSwan: 2014

Seller ID: 101756

ISBN: 8125055215

Condition: New


Hindu–Catholic Engagements in Goa offers a novel perspective on the Portuguese empire and Catholic hegemony in Asia that for almost half a millennium—from 1510 to 1961—had its capital in Goa. Based on fresh archival studies and extensive ethnography, it reveals the dramatic role of religion at the beginning of colonialism and modernity and provides insight into Goa’s intricate Hindu-Catholic syncretism today. Vasco Da Gama’s celebrated passage to India (1497–99) not only initiated a period of Christian expansion, in which Jesuit missionaries declared war to the alleged ‘idolatry... View more info

Without belittling the monotheistic faiths, a clear exposition is given of the differences between the Hindu way of thinking in spiritual matters and that of the followers of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Attempts to modify the core of Hinduism to show that it is in essential agreement with the monotheistic faiths deprive it of its uniqueness and identity, and threatens its existence as a unique and vibrant tradition. Dharma and Karma form the determinants of action that guide Hindus in daily lives. The evolutionary nature of the decision-making process is based on dharma. Karma, contrary t... View more info

Discerning the Spirits: Theological and Ethical Hermeneutics in Paul

By: Andre Munzinger

Publisher: Cambridge, UK, Cambridge University Press: 2007

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 018644

ISBN: 0521875943

Condition: Brand New


How did Paul determine ethical and theological truth? Were all believers expected to be able to 'discern the spirits' (1 Corinthians 12.10)? This study shows that discernment must be understood against the backdrop of an extensive hermeneutic, by which Paul inherently relates ethical and theological knowledge. Understanding the will of God requires noetic and existential transformation, in short, the 'renewal of the mind' (Romans 12.2). Munzinger argues that Paul implies a process of inspiration in which the Spirit sharpens the discerning functions of the mind because the believer is liberated... View more info

Tracing the concept of `being saved' from the book of Acts to various missiological conversations on biblical salvation, this book investigates into a missiological soteriology, focusing on the question of who is saved and who is not. On the same topic, a case study was conducted among the Mizo Baptist Missionaries to find out their viewpoints on the Christian concept of salvation, especially in relation to the unevangelized. The findings have added rich local views on knowing who is saved and who is not. Seeing the importance of the relationship between missional theory and practice resulting... View more info

In this book, author have consistently discussed and explained the influence of religion in political development from divine power to public power. It is no doubt that religion has given our society much of its character and coherence, permeating human behaviour in various ways either directly or indirectly. It is undeviable that the rise of modern political system was strongly influenced by the Jewish Christian religious heritage. Despite the great secularising process that has taken place during the last four centuries, belief in God has continued to play a relevant role in political ideas.... View more info

The Intimate Other explores the theme of the devotional element in Indic Religions not only in Hinduism in which bhakti has become the dominant form, but also in Budhism, Jainism, Sikhism and Islam. The essays by scholars of international repute, show the strength of this devotion to the divine as a living and powerful source of value, aesthetic imagination, creativity and well-being . They also analyse the sometimes divergent interests of scholar and devotee, problematising devotion and exposing its historical development as complex, contested and 'political'. Of particular interest are the c... View more info

What does it mean to forgive? The answer is widely assumed to be self-evident but critical analysis quickly reveals the complexities of the subject. Forgiveness has traditionally been the preserve of Christian theology, though in the last half century - and at an accelerating pace - psychologists, lawyers, politicians and moral philosophers have all been making an important contribution to questions about and our understanding of the subject. Anthony Bash offers a vigorous restatement of the Christian view of forgiveness in critical dialogue with those both within and without the Christian tra... View more info

This Book presents the multi-faceted Hindu deity Dattatreya from his puranic emergence up to modern times. Dattatreya's Brahmanical portrayal, as well as his even more archaic characterization as a Tantric antinomian figure, combines both Vaisnava and Saiva motifs. Over the course of time, Dattatreya has come to embody the roles of the immortal guru, yogin and avatara in a paradigmatic manner. From the sixteenth century Dattatreya's glorious characterization emerged as the incarnation of the trimurti of Brahma, Visnu, and Siva. Although Maharastra is the heartland of Dattatreya devotion, his p... View more info

Most of the art in Tibetan religion or Lamaism is used for worship-the thangkas, images, votive tablets and ritual masks. There are many things such as metal works, jewelry, charm boxes, musical instruments and other objects which are used for lay purposes, but are decorated with religious symbols.

While secularism has been integral to India's democracy for more than fifty years, its uses and limits are being debated anew. Signs of a crisis in the relations between state, society, and religion include the viloence against Muslims in Gujarat and the precarious situation of India's minorities more generally; personal laws that vary by religious community; the affiliation of political parties with fundamentalist religious organizations; and the rallying of sections of the diasporic Hindu community behind nationalist Hinduism.

However, the prophetic understanding corrected the notion that health and healing is not just physical but it was also emotional, relational, spiritual, and ecological. Therefore, ... View more info
