Majesty and Humanity

Majesty and Humanity

In reinterpreting two of Lope de Vega's plays, Forcione places his texts in the context of political and institutional history philosophy, theology, and art history.

In the Golden Age of Spanish Theater, an age of highly dramatized coronations and regal spectacles, Alban Forcione has discovered a surprising but persistent preoccupation with the disrobing of the king. In both the celebrations of majesty and the enthrallment with its unveiling, he finds the chilling recesses in which a culture struggled to reconcile the public and the private, society and the individual, the monarch and the man. In brilliantly reinterpreting two of Lope de Vega’s plays, long regarded as conventional royalist propaganda, Forcione places his texts in the context of political and institutional history, philosophy, theology, and art history. In so doing he shows how Spanish theater anticipated the decisive changes in human consciousness that characterized the ascendance of the absolutist state and its threat to the cultivation of individuality, authenticity, and humanity.

By becoming Pope, the philosopher Wojtyla precipitated the hitherto obscure school of phenomenological personalism on to the central stage of Catholic thought. This philosophical approach does not contradict the more traditional Thomistic tradition, but it is new and modern in several important respects. However, it is unfamiliar to Anglo-Saxon philosophers who have not specialized in Continental thought, and there are very few books that explain it in a way that students of philosophy - as well as students of the Pope - would find useful and enjoyable. This is one of the first books to do so. The question that the author finds at the heart of the Pope's thinking is not the abstract question of how to define the human person, but the Gospel and existential question, 'Who is my neighbour?'. By answering this, Wojtyla provides a footbridge into the very heart of Christian experience and the meaning of love.

The Dramatizing of Theology

The Dramatizing of Theology

As Farlow discusses, it is through the dramatizing of theology that we find ourselves best equipped to participate faithfully in the role of a lifetime.

Author: Matthew S. Farlow

Page: 252

View: 401

Matthew Farlow traces the thoughts of Balthasar and Barth so as to enter into theological truth of God's Being-in-Act. This exploration embarks on a journey into the reality of our Triune God who has engaged his creation so as to elicit fellow actors. God seeking out humanity is God with us, a truth that not only informs our theological endeavors, but invites us into the dramatic performance of reconciliation. As Farlow illumines, God is an acting God who seeks fellow participants in his ongoing drama of salvation. Through the dramatizing of theology, the church and her theologians come to realize God's threefold movement--revelation, invitation and reconciliation. It is a unified act that startles humanity, and thus theology, out of its "spectator's seat," so as to drag it onto the world's stage. As Farlow discusses, it is through the dramatizing of theology that we find ourselves best equipped to participate faithfully in the role of a lifetime.
