Definire il pluralismo religioso:

un “research hub” per lo studio delle religioni

Descrizione e organizzazione

Gli ultimi decenni hanno messo in evidenza una contraddizione comune in tutta Europa: da una parte vi è un crescente dibattito sul sempre più diffuso analfabetismo religioso; dall’altra la conoscenza della diversità religiosa diviene sempre più importante come strumento di integrazione e costruzione di un complesso sistema di coesistenza e pacifica interazione. L’emergenza di conflitti, la trasformazione delle società in senso plurale, il fenomeno globale delle migrazioni, il corrispondente fenomeno delle religioni diasporiche e, più in generale, la stratificazione delle identità, delle credenze, dei costumi e delle tradizioni determinano la necessità di nuovi strumenti che permettano di moltiplicare la comprensione e la conoscenza. Questo ciclo di incontri mira a costruire una rete di collaborazione fra studiosi del fatto religioso all’interno della Sapienza. L’obiettivo principale consiste nel creare un lessico interdisciplinare degli approcci metodologici allo studio delle religioni. I punti di vista adottati sono quelli della storia (storia delle religioni, storia del cristianesimo), dell’antropologia, della filosofia, della sociologia e del diritto. A partire da questa prima fase che si risolve nell’ambito delle scienze umane, il gruppo di ricerca intende allargarsi a livello ancor più interdisciplinare e interattivo.

Présenté par :

Anna Van den Kerchove
Luciana Gabriela Soares Santoprete

avec la participation de Jean-Daniel Dubois

L’ouvrage témoigne de la richesse du parcours intellectuel de Jean-Daniel Dubois, depuis les oasis d’Égypte jusqu’à la Route de la Soie…
Il fait le point sur les dernières avancées de la recherche dans les études gnostiques, manichéennes et apocryphes, en croisant les disciplines et les périodes et en tissant des liens avec l’environnement philosophico-religieux tardo-antique.
Venez rencontrer J.-D. Dubois, auquel ce livre est dédié, et A. Van den Kerchove et L.G. Soares Santoprete, directrices de la publication, qui nous en présenteront les principales thématiques.

À l’occasion du départ à la retraite de Jean-Daniel Dubois de la direction d’études « Gnose et Manichéisme » à l’École pratique des hautes études en 2015, plusieurs de ses collègues et amis ont tenu à lui rendre hommage. La diversité des thèmes, des écrits et des communautés culturelles et linguistiques étudiés dans les quarante-quatre contributions ici publiées, témoigne de la richesse du parcours intellectuel de Jean-Daniel Dubois, lequel s’étend des oasis d’Égypte jusqu’à la Route de la Soie.
Ce volume s’adresse aux spécialistes de la Méditerranée, du Proche-Orient et de l’Extrême-Orient anciens. Il intéressera les historiens des religions, particulièrement ceux des mouvements chrétiens – dont les courants gnostiques -, du manichéisme, des cultes polythéistes et de l’islam, les philologues ainsi que les historiens de la philosophie de l’Antiquité tardive.

Hermès Trismégiste

Le messager divin

Anna Van Der Kerchove, Paris: Entre Lacs, 2017

Description

Hermès Trismégiste est une figure importante dans l’Antiquité durant les premiers siècles de l’ère commune. Il est considéré comme une figure de sagesse, et les écrits (les Hermetica) qui lui sont attribués font entendre sa voix et constituent une voie de salut pour ceux qui s’y engagent et qui croient en l’historicité du maître. Une véritable tradition hermétique se met ainsi en place, avec un enseignement et des pratiques rituels. Celle-ci eut des ramifications dans le monde musulman et aussi dans le monde occidental jusqu’à l’époque moderne. L’ouvrage a pour but de rendre plus accessibles une figure et des écrits qui sont pour le moment essentiellement connus des spécialistes. Il aborde aussi bien la figure d’Hermès Trismégiste, qui tient à la fois du dieu grec Hermès et du dieu égyptien Thot, que la «sagesse hermétique» qui est proposée dans les Hermetica. Hermès Trismégiste, une figure qui tient à la fois de la tradition grecque et de la tradition égyptienne, représente surtout une voie de sagesse, une voie d’immortalité qui prétend apporter le salut à ceux qui s’engagent dans cette voie.
C’est une voix qui se fait entendre à travers des écrits qui miment l’enseignement d’Hermès, lequel mime déjà la Révélation primordiale dont il aurait bénéficié. Cette voix se fait aussi probablement entendre à travers des maîtres historiques qui poursuivent la tradition hermétique.
En effet, il est difficile d’affilier la tradition hermétique à un culte spécifique ni à une « école » philosophique particulière, mais la tradition hermétique, qui se déploie dans le temps dans une grande diversité, emprunte à différents courants philosophico-religieux et s’adapte, afin de s’adresser au plus nombre, tout en ne voulant être accessible qu’aux plus dignes.

PLOTINUS

Ennead II.9: Against the Gnostics

Plotinus, Sebastian Gertz (trad.), Las Vegas: Parmenides Publishing, 2017

Description

How was the universe created, and what is our place within it? These are the questions at the heart of Plotinus’ Against the Gnostics. For the Gnostics, the universe came into being as a result of the soul’s fall from intelligible reality—it is the evil outcome of a botched creation. Plotinus challenges this, and insists that the soul’s creation of the world is the necessary consequence of its contemplation of the ideal forms. While the Gnostics claim to despise the visible universe, Plotinus argues that such contempt displays their ignorance of the higher realities of which the cosmos is a beautiful image. Against the Gnostics is a polemical text. It aims to show the superiority of Plotinus’ philosophy over that of his Gnostic rivals, and poses unique challenges: Plotinus nowhere identifies his opponents by name, he does not set out their doctrines in any great detail, and his arguments are frequently elliptical. The detailed commentary provides a guide through these difficulties, making Plotinus’ meandering train of thought in this important treatise accessible to the reader.

The Routledge Guidebook to The New Testament

Patrick Gray, London: Routledge, 2017

Description

As part of the Christian canon of scripture, the New Testament is one of the most influential works in history. Its impact can be seen in many different fields, but without an awareness of the historical, cultural, social, and intellectual context of early Christianity, it can be difficult for modern-day readers to fully understand what the first-century authors were trying to say and how the first readers of the New Testament would have understood these ideas. The Routledge Guidebook to the New Testament offers an academic introduction to the New Testament examining:

  • The social and historical context in which the New Testament was written
  • The primary text, supporting students in close analysis from a range of consensus positions
  • The contemporary reception and ongoing influence of the New Testament

With further reading suggestions, this guidebook is essential reading for all students of religion and philosophy, and all those wishing to engage with this important work.

Critical Spirituality

A holistic approach to contemporary practice

Westerink H. (eds.), London: Routledge, 2017

Description

A central issue in the study of the correlation between modernity, the turn to the religious subject and the history of mysticism, concerns the critical – some would argue ‘subversive’ – character and practice of mysticism and spirituality. Is this critical practice merely the resistance effect of the modern pastoral investment in the subject? Or is there something distinctive in mysticism and spirituality that draws it strength from various sources – knowledge, experience, desire or perhaps even one’s body – and operates from a specific position or ‘locus’? This volume explores these questions with the aim of developing a theory of critical spirituality, that is to say, of its historical appearances and its contemporary forms and characteristics.

Plato and Plotinus on Mysticism, Epistemology, and Ethics

David J. Yount, London: Bloomsbury, 2017

Description

This book argues against the common view that there are no essential differences between Plato and the Neoplatonist philosopher, Plotinus, on the issues of mysticism, epistemology, and ethics. Beginning by examining the ways in which Plato and Plotinus claim that it is possible to have an ultimate experience that answers the most significant philosophical questions, David J. Yount provides an extended analysis of why we should interpret both philosophers as mystics. The book then moves on to demonstrate that both philosophers share a belief in non-discursive knowledge and the methods to attain it, including dialectic and recollection, and shows that they do not essentially differ on any significant views on ethics. Making extensive use of primary and secondary sources, Plato and Plotinus on Mysticism, Epistemology and Ethics shows the similarities between the thought of these two philosophers on a variety of philosophical questions, such as meditation, divination, wisdom, knowledge, truth, happiness and love.

Waardenburg’s magisterial essay traces the rise and development of the academic study of religion from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, outlining the establishment of the discipline, its connections with other fields, religion as a subject of research, and perspectives on a phenomenological study of religion. Futhermore a second part comprises an anthology of texts from 41 scholars whose work was programmatic in the evolution of the academic study of religion. Each chapter presents a particular approach, theory, and method relevant to the study of religion.
