Hear ye! Hear ye!



Am aflat astăzi de la dna Francisca Băltăceanu că la Humanitas se pregătește pentru publicare o lucrare de teologie care în mod cert va fi interesantă atât pentru cititorii specializați, cât și pentru amatorii dornici să se informeze cu privire la evoluția doctrinei creștine de-a lungul secolelor.

Între timp am primit de la Editura Humanitas și anunțul privind lansarea cărții. Dacă sunteți în București și aveți timp și energie pentru un drum până la Cișmigiu, nu ratați întâlnirea cu autorul și invitații lui.

Astăzi am fost în „inspecția periodică” la una dintre librăriile Humanitas, dar am plecat în buzunar numai cu lucrarea lui Lucian Boia despre Suveranii României, fiindcă Îndreptarul e încă la tipar. Ca să rămân o clipă la cartea lui Boia: bine cunoscutul istoric se întreabă chiar în titlu dacă monarhia e o soluție. Nu știu ce răspuns dă, însă voi încerca să revin zilele acestea cu note de lectură.

După atâta alergătură anul acesta, nu cred că mă mai țin picioarele să ajung la noua ediție a simpozionului C.S. Lewis. Dar e îmbucurător că s-a creat deja o mică tradiție. Felicitări organizatorilor!

Mai multe expoziții și documente de epocă și mai puțină isterie „evlavioasă”.

Gabi D


Today, during a break, professor Wim François (KU Leuven) drew my attention to this conference about the “16th century reformations”. I am glad that the series of conferences on this topic continues and I am really tempted to submit a proposal. If it is accepted, I hope to be able to return to Leuven in May. Full information about submitting a proposal can be found HERE.

The Fifth RefoRC Conference 2015 will be held May 7-9, 2015 and will hosted by the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Version of this webpage: June 18, 2014.

Short Papers and General Attendance

The conference is open to individual short paper presentations (20 minutes presentation, 10 minutes discussion) and to thematic sessions of two or three short papers. It is also possible to attend the conference without presenting a paper. While we encourage papers on the conference theme, papers can focus on all disciplines related to the 16th century reformations, such as arts, philosophy, law, history, theology etc., independent of the theme of the plenary papers.

Short Paper Submission and Registration

Short paper proposals and registrations can be submitted via the registration form. Short paper proposals are welcome before February 15, 2015.

Theme of Plenary Papers

The theme of the plenary papers is: Crossing Borders: Transregional Reformations.

In recent decades, the field of transnational/transregional history has yielded novel insights: the constant movement of persons, goods, ideas, books and images across boundaries induced a transfer of culture and knowledge shaping the early modern world much more profoundly than previously thought. Although alert to the universal aspect of religion, theologians and (church) historians are only starting to apply this methodology to the study of religious reform in the sixteenth century.

The conference aims to emphasize the shift in the field of Reformation Studies to a cross-border and multi-confessional approach: How were religious exile, confessional identity and transregional transfers connected? What were the routes and networks of religious reform, along and across borders? How did the printing press support transregional exchange? In what ways did global, transregional and local dimensions of religious reform interact?

The Fifth RefoRC Conference Leuven explores transregional dimensions of the Catholic and Protestant Reformations in the early modern period.

Communication

General communication of the conference is in English, but also papers in French and German will be welcomed. Presenters who prefer to give their paper in French or German, are invited to provide the audience with an English summary of about 150-200 words.

New Conference: “Theology of the Holy Spirit: Personal Experience and Charismatic Movements in Contemporary Churches” (12–15 Nov. 2014, Sibiu, Romania)

International Conference

THEOLOGY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT:

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND CHARISMATIC MOVEMENTS IN CONTEMPORARY CHURCHES

12–15 November 2014

Sibiu, Romania

THEME OF THE CONFERENCE

The idea of the real indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the Church and in the human person, stressed already in the New Testament, plays an important role in contemporary Christianity; it is especially explicit in Pentecostal churches but also in charismatic movements in many traditional churches. The emphasis is placed on the felt experience of the presence of the Spirit, with particular attention to certain charismas, connected to the event of Pentecost.

In contemporary culture much attention is given to individual perception and experience. This results within Christian churches in the question of many believers: “How can I experience the Christian message in my own life?” Pentecostal churches and charismatic movements are closely connected to this attitude, which seems to form the basis of their success. On the other hand, traditional churches treat this kind of experience with suspicion because they regard it as purely emotional and not in line with traditional church teaching. This does not mean however that the idea of personal experience of the Holy Spirit is absent from the teaching of traditional churches. Thus, the idea of the gaining of the Holy Spirit by each and every Christian during his/her life is central to the teaching of the Orthodox Church, although this is understood in a different way than in Pentecostal churches.

In the course of the Conference, it is intended to address the following questions:

How much room do traditional churches (Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant) give to personal (religious) experience and experiences of the Spirit?

How do they relate to charismatic movements within their own churches and to Pentecostal churches? How do they perceive each other?

What does this mean for the theological vision of the Holy Spirit? Is it possible to reconcile traditional church teaching about the Holy Spirit and theosis with the experience of the Spirit in Pentecostalism and charismatic movements?

The program of the Antwerp conference is now in its final form. See HERE.

I am scheduled to give a presentation on Saturday, 20 September.

Alas, I won’t be able to visit Bruges this time, because I will return to London the next day.

The 22nd annual conference of the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading & Publishing (SHARP) will be held in Antwerp (Belgium), Wednesday 17 September through Sunday 21 September 2014.

The program takes place primarily at the University of Antwerp, in the old centre of the city, but includes events at different venues of book historical interest as well as preconference workshops/tours and excursions. The central theme is ‘Religions of the Book’, but in conformity with tradition the conference also welcomes other book historical papers, sessions and round tables. Sponsors include the Plantin-Moretus Museum, the Hendrik Conscience Library, the Antwerp University Library, the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, the FWO, the Flemish House of Literature, the Antwerp Bibliophile Society, Cultura, KBC Banking & Insurance, Boek.be, Brill, René and Susanne Braginsky-Foundation (Zurich), the Flemish Book Historical Society and the University of Antwerp.


Cartea la care lucrez acum, în perioada șederii la Cambridge, și din care am început să public pe blog fragmente, are un titlu:

Cornilescu. Din culisele publicării celei mai citite

traduceri românești a Sfintei Scripturi

Fiindcă textul va depăși 140.000 de cuvinte, mă aștept ca numărul de pagini să fie undeva între 400 și 450. Dacă așezarea în pagină va fi generoasă, s-ar putea să ajungem chiar la 500.

Studiul introductiv, care se bazează pe un articol nepublicat, scris pentru volumul Omul evanghelic (rămas „la roșu” de câțiva ani) are circa 20.000 de cuvinte.

Cartea va fi prefațată de o importantă personalitate a biblisticii românești. Nu spui cine; veți afla la vremea potrivită.

Am inserat note de subsol cu zgârcenie, de aceea numărul lor nu va trece de 300. Dacă aș fi fost mai zelos, numărul lor s-ar fi dublat. Însă n-am vrut să-l sufoc pe cititor în savantlâcuri. Și apoi, mi-am lăsat însă de lucru și pentru o viitoare ediție revăzută și adăugită.

Am pregătit și numeroase fotografii, pentru că nu sărbătorim în fiecare zi a nouăzecea aniversare a Bibliei Cornilescu.

Lucrarea va avea următoarea structură:

1. Prefață

2. Mulțumiri

3. Lămuriri preliminare

4. Informații biografice

5. Tabel cronologic

6. Studiu introductiv

7. Scrisori și documente din arhiva SBB

8. Postfață

9. Bibliografie

10. Indice
