Am 7,10-17 jako střet pohledů na svět

Amos 7:10-17 as a concurrence of world views

Adam Mackerle

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):1-17

The text of Am 7:10-17 is primarily a dialogue, not a biographical narrative. Therefore, this article analyses the text of Am 7:10-17 as a dialogue between Amaziah and Amos. The former interprets Amos' words in a worldly, horizontal way. He views Amos as a rebel preaching against the state. In the same way he also interprets his own ministry. As a priest, he is a royal official, a servant of the "king's sanctuary". Amos, in contrast, corrects his view. He affirms that he is not merely a prophet who prophesies in order to earn money, but that he prophesies because he has been called by God. The basic difference between both figures resides in their...

Sókratovsko-platónská a křesťanská podoba péče o duši

The Socratic-Platonic Form of the Care of the Soul and its Christian Pendant

Martin Cajthaml

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):18-31

The aim of this paper is to expound upon the relationship between the Socratic-Platonic form of the care of the soul and its Christian pendant. This relationship is considered essential in Jan Patočka's late concept of the spiritual roots of Europe. Patočka, however, does not develop this theme systematically. The attempt to develop this theme presented in this paper is inspired by Patočka's interpretation of the Socratic-Platonic care of the soul, but it breaks with this interpretation in important ways, as well. The difference in both approaches, however, is left implicit as the focus of the paper is on a systematic analyses of the relationship between...

Analytický tomizmus

Analytical Thomism

Peter Volek

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):32-48

The article identifies and further specifies the basic features of Thomism, analytical philosophy, and analytical Thomism. It draws upon the respective encyclicals on this topic, viz. Aeterni Patris and Fides et ratio, as well as upon certain other studies (Haldane, Poiuvet, Berti). It does not, however, consider these studies as fully sufficient, and thus proposes the following features of analytical Thomism: (1) openness to analytical thinking; (2) openness towards contemporary findings in the natural sciences and their philosophical interpretation; (3) openness to solving theological issues, particularly in Catholic theology; (4) the adoption of...

Příčiny a důsledky Motu Proprio Omnium in mentem ve vztahu k manželskému právu

Causes and Consequences of Motu Proprio Omnium in Mentem in Relation to Marriage Law

Libor Botek

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):49-58

An obligatory legal form for the validity of marriage was required by the Church for the first time by the Tametsi decree of the Council of Trent in 1563. The Ne temere decree (1907) and the Code of Canon Law (1917) confirmed this. For Eastern Catholic Christians the form was introduced in 1949 with Motu proprio Crebrae allatae. The form additionally applied to those who had abandoned the Catholic Church through a formal act. After the Second Vatican Council, however, an exception for them was incorporated into the Code of 1983. This exception was not found in CCEO (1990), as it was incompatible with the Eastern tradition. Adjustments to the CIC 1983,...

Poradní hlas při rozhodování v církvi

The consultative vote in the decision making process in the Church

Marie Kolářová

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):59-71

The Church is a society with a hierarchical structure in the same fashion as the community of the people of God. In this context, the roles of the consultative vote and the deliberative vote in the course of acts of a superior have to be understood, particularly in the light of the teachings of the Second Vatican Council regarding the Church as the community of the people of God. The law grants that this right be consulted in a double manner. The first one is the obligation of a superior to hear (audire) individuals or group of persons, the second one is the right of individuals or a group of persons to express a consultative vote (consilium). A superior...

Posuny topoi náboženských posolstiev v mediálnom spracovaní

How the Media Change the Topoi of Religious Messages

Terézia Rončáková

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):72-96

The study offers conclusions on research aimed at the transmission of religious messages through the media. The main research question, if media language is able to communicate religious messages, is analyzed by the author through the antique topoi, common ideas, fundamental convictions, on which the communicated messages are based and which guarantee their transmitting to the recipient and the effect on his or her thinking and doing. The author compares the topoi of the original religious messages in the church media and the religious messages processed in the secular media. She comes to certain findings as to their clear difference and synthesizes...

Volný čas jako výzva pro teologii

Leisure Time as a Challenge to Theology

Michal Kaplánek

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):97-117

Free time is one of the significant phenomenon of contemporary life. People's attitude towards time and leisure is influenced by the Judeo-Christian tradition as well as by contemporary consumer trends. The author builds on the teachings of J. Pieper and R. Bleinstein and seeks to establish the place of leisure in theology. From philosophical reflections about understanding time he moves to topics of social ethics which are linked with the modern concept of leisure. Leisure consequently appears as an area for the realisation of interpersonal relationships as well as for searching for God, as it corresponds with the biblical idea of the Sabbath. At...

Wojtyłova personalistická koncepcia manželstva a sexuality ako alternatíva k odosobnenej sexualite súčasnosti

Wojtyła's Personalistic Concept of Marriage and Sexuality as an Alternative to Contemporary Depersonalised Sexuality

Daniel Demočko, Inocent-Mária V.Szaniszló

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):118-125

The paper presents an outline of the personalistic concept of marriage and sexuality proposed by the eminent 20th century thinker Karol Wojtyła. As a philosopher, he contributed to progress in the area of sexuality when he, in accordance with personalist principles, characterized marital sexuality as two people giving mutually in love (not excluding openness to procreation of life), wherein he challenged the earlier views of his predecessors who viewed marriage as an institution established above all for the procreation of children. In the paper, the essential lines of Wojtyła thinking about humans, sexuality, love and marriage are presented offering...

Prolegomena ke studiu české christologie 19. století - knižní produkce a odborné studie v ČKD

Prolegomena to the Studies of Czech Christology of the 19th century - Published Books and Academic Papers in the Časopis katolického duchovenstva

Ctirad Václav Pospíšil

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(2):126-162

In this paper the author classifies the christological publications of Czech authors and the christological literature translated into Czech in the 19th century. In each group, the entries are listed in chronological order and provide basic information regarding the content and the genre. This foundation can be used for future preparation of a treatise dedicated to the theme of Czech christology of the 19th century. The overview of collections of sermons, in particular from the first half of the 19th century, points to the possibility of their successive rendering in student theses which will constitute the basis for the subsequent evaluation.
