    Mendicants on the margins

    A one-day symposium on the theme of “Mendicants on the Margins” will take place at University College Cork on the 27 June 2018. It is organised as part of the IRC-funded project “Spiritual Infrastructure, Space and Society: The Augustinian Friars in Late Medieval Ireland”. Speakers from Ireland and abroad will tackle a variety of aspects relating to the geenral theme on Mendicants on the Margins, from mendicant orders in geographical margins, the lesser-known orders such as the Augustinian friars, female communities and the Franciscan Third Order, to mendicant communities on the margins of the traditional model of urban mendicancy, such as foundations in non-urban environments, and aspects of mendicant studies challenging the traditional historiography of mendicant orders.

    Christianity, language contact, language change

    The present workshop addresses questions of language contact and language change, as well as language standardization in the Christian context both in Europe and in the New World (Americas, Africa) through a study of diachronic and synchronic corpora. Special attention is paid, on the one hand, to the role of translation as a sight of language contact, and on the other hand, to register variation as an indicator of differential propagation of innovations appeared in Christian context.

    The Invention of Sin

    The Greek word for a fault or error is hamartia; this same word, when it appears in Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible and in the New Testament, is commonly rendered as “sin.”  If there were no word like sin or péché or Sünde or peccato in modern languages, with the religious connotation these terms have acquired, could we identify a special sense of hamartia (or the Latin peccatum) in the Bible on the basis of context alone?  This colloquium will address the question of when and how error and wrongdoing acquired the specific sense of sin commonly associated with the Judaeo-Christian tradition – if indeed there was a change.  Under examination will be attitudes toward wrongdoing in ancient cults, ideas of pollution, conceptions of God or gods, and more.

    Abraham Ibn Ezra, un savant à la croisée des cultures arabe, hébraïque et latine du XIIe siècle

    In the middle of the eighth century, with the completion of the Islamic conquest of the eastern, northern and part of the western shores of the Mediterranean, Jews managed to successfully integrate into the ruling society without losing their religious and national identity. They willingly adopted the Arabic language, spoke Arabic fluently, wrote Arabic in Hebrew letters (Judeo-Arabic), and employed Arabic in the composition of their literary works. The twelfth century witnessed a cultural phenomenon that saw Jewish scholars gradually abandon the Arabic language and adopt Hebrew, previously used almost exclusively for religious and liturgical purposes, for the first time as a vehicle for the expression of secular and scientific ideas.

    Religious diversity: comparative views East (Asia) and West (Europe)

    Issues in diversity have become crucial all around the planet for political and social reasons. In a world whose cultural and religious plurality is expanding it nevertheless expands in a variety of forms and for somewhat different reasons: diversity in the West assumes somewhat different logics and shapes than in the East. The comparison between different forms of religious diversities therefore supposes to take into account the role of religious systems themselves and the political context in which they are embedded. It otherwise requires a parallel comparison of the logics of diversity (opposition, coexistence, hybridity, syncretism …) and the social acceptation of religions and religious relationships in their specific cultural backgrounds.

    Emerging Moral Economies in Southeast Asia. Exploring the Symbolic & Material Dimensions of “New Economies”

    Like other regions of the world, South-East Asia has, since the mid-1980s, seen the rise of a new “spirit of capitalism”, linked to the growth of a middle class. Various religious mass-organizations have developed new discourses on wealth and innovative techniques of financing. At their helm, we often find charismatic figures who are responding to the demands of those in search of meaning in an increasingly de-structured modern urban life setting. In doing so, these actors operate on a “spiritual marketplace” characterized by great fluidity and competition. This conference is to look at the different ways through which tensions between religious ethics and economic rationalization are negotiated, both ideologically and institutionally.

    The Papacy and the East

    Intellectual debates and cross-cultural interactions, 1274-1439

    This symposium brings together scholars from different backgrounds to discuss intellectual relations and cultural interactions between the Papal curia and Christian communities and Churches of the Greek, Armenian, and Syriac East between 1274-1439. Fresh empirical analysis will provide new insights into this phase of East-West relations, offering a major laboratory to explore the actors, mechanisms, tools, ideas, and purposes of overseas cultural contacts.

    The Face of the Dead and the Early Christian World

    The theme chosen for this meeting is the study of funerary images in the transition between late antiquity and the Middle Ages. The central question will a reflection on the function of the funerary images in a broad sense, but also their impact on the early christian world. The choice of the chronological time also shows the second intention of the colloquium: this is an attempt to explain why the ancient funerary tradition of the image will eventually disappear, replaced by other figures of the representative functions. Through various media - from the mosaic and painting, through sculpture and ending with gilded glasses - there will be presented one of the nodal representation of the self: the human face on the border between life and death.

    École d’été « Religion, culture et société en Europe (1750- ) »

    Religion et modernité. Louvain, du 17 au 26 août 2009

    Traditionnellement la signification sociétale et culturelle de la religion à été représentée pendant la modernité de façon dichotomique, voire ambiguë. Adhérents de la thèse de la sécularisation argumentent que les transformations économiques, sociales, culturelles et politiques entourant la modernité, ont affaibli linéairement l’impact de la religion dans la société. La prépondérance de cette thèse a fait que bon nombre de chercheurs ont sous-estimé le rôle de la religion comme facteur explicatif dans l’histoire des XIXe et XXe siècles.

    Reconnaissance et liberté

    La section philosophique du projet de recherche « Changements structurels de la reconnaissance au XXIe siècle » organise les 27 et 28 juin prochains, à l'Institut de recherche sociale (Francfort), une journée d'études consacrée au thème : « Reconnaissance et liberté ». Le but de la journée d’étude est de déchiffrer le rapport du concept de reconnaissance aux différentes conceptions philosophiques et politiques de la liberté. S’agit-il, dans les cas de lutte pour la reconnaissance, de demandes articulées en termes de liberté « négative » ou « positive » ? Quelles sont les conséquences qu’ont, pourrait ou devrait avoir une « politique de la reconnaissance » pour notre compréhension des libertés politiques ?

    Innovations religieuses et dynamiques du changement culturel en Océanie contemporaine

    Anthropologie du christianisme océanien

    La présence et l'influence des églises chrétiennes en Océanie sont aujourd'hui devenues des données incontournables de l'analyse de ces sociétés insulaires et des dynamiques régionales. Alors que les églises dites « historiques » ou « traditionnelles » avaient élaboré un discours chrétien sur les identités culturelles locales face à l'occidentalisation, l'essor des églises mormones et adventistes, puis de la « troisième vague » du christianisme océanien - les mouvements évangéliques et pentecôtistes - semblent aujourd'hui remettre en cause ces équilibres. Ces journées d'études visent à la fois à dresser un état des lieux du christianisme océanien contemporain et à réfléchir aux approches anthropologiques disponibles pour rendre compte des rapports entre christianisme et culture dans cette région du monde.

    La Vie monastique dans le miroir de la parenté/Monastic life in the mirror of kinship

    Vers une comparaison des différentes formes de vie monastique/Towards a comparison of the different forms of monastic life

    Cet atelier a pour dessein d’amorcer une réflexion comparatiste et pluri¬disciplinaire sur la manière dont ceux que l’on dit « moines » et « moniales » se situent, au sein de la société, par rapport à l’organisation de la parenté, notamment en empruntant le langage de la famille pour penser leur communauté.Une question fondamentale se pose : existe-t-il un dénominateur commun entre les modes de vie communautaires assurément hétérogènes des moines dans le monde ? L’une des hypothèses avancées est la suivante : ce qui singularise ces hommes et ces femmes qui décident de partir pour le monastère, c’est qu’ils doivent rompre avec leur famille de façon temporaire (le temps de l’initiation ou d’une retraite) ou définitive (en faisant vœu de célibat) et, par là même, qu’ils défient alors dans leur vocation et/ou dans leur vie communautaire l’organisation de la parenté tout entière.Cette réunion est la première du groupe de travail organisé autour de ce thème. Elle rassemble historiens et anthropologues spécialistes de différentes régions du monde.Our prospect with this workshop is to open a comparative and pluridisciplinary approach on the ways the said “monks” live and place themselves in relation to the kinship organization and on how they use the language of kinship to think of their monastic community.At the beginning of this reflection is the question whether there is a common factor between the obviously heterogeneous communal life styles of monks in the world.One of the assumptions is the following: What marks out these men and women who decide to leave for the monastery is that they have to break with their family whether temporarly (initiation, retreat) or definitively (through vows of celibacy) challenging in that way through their vocation and/or their community life the whole kinship organization.This meeting is the first one of the research group organized on this subject. It gathers together historians and anthropologists specialized in different regions of the world.
