Jesus' Disputation with the Citizens of Jerusalem (John 7:25-30)

Vojtěch Brož

Studia Theologica 2012, 14(2):1-28

The article presents an exegesis of John 7:25-30. This passage from the Scriptures contains Jesus' debate with the Jews in Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles. The essential question of the debate concerns Jesus as the Messiah. This is challenged by Jerusalem citizens on the basis of the "messianic dogma", the unknown origin of the Messiah. In addition, the pericope contains the first of four affirmations of Jesus in which he proclaims that he knows God the Father (John 7:29, 8:55, 10:15, 17:25). Jesus affirms his knowledge of the Father, his own being from the Father, as well as his mission. Thereby, he exposes the deepest mystery of his own...

Je možné zachránit princip subsidiarity?

Is it Possible to Save the Principle of Subsidiarity?

Roman Míčka

Studia Theologica 2012, 14(2):99-117

This article responds to critical notes in Vaclav Klaus's book European Integration Without Illusions (2011) and attempts to outline the historical and content development of the concept of subsidiarity in the context of Catholic social doctrine. It describes its particular aspects and connections, ways of use in the tradition of the social encyclicals and in the area of Catholic social thought. The article comes to the conclusion that the concept of subsidiarity is a formal principle which is filled with a varied content. Its use in documents of the European Union and in discussions about European integration is therefore problematic. It also suggests...

About Enthusiasts and Educated Theologians or Once More on one Translation

Eva Hrdinová

Studia Theologica 2012, 14(2):118-132

The study deals with one of the youngest translations of St. John Chrysostom's Eastern liturgy into Czech. The translation analysed represents an innovative act not only within the Eastern Orthodox Church, but also outside it, and for many reasons has been accepted in different ways. The study also aims at providing space to critical voices and endeavours to discuss these views in the context of theory and practice of translation. Equally, it strives for an complete analysis of the linguistic-translatological characteristics of the translations by Marek Krupica and Jiří Stránský. One of the important factors of the concerned translation by Krupica...
