Words of Love in the Septuagint and the New Testament

Veronika Černušková

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):1-40 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.038

Along with the previous article "Three Levels of Love in the Greek? Words of Love in Non-Christian writers and the Church Fathers," published in ST 16,1 (2014), this paper provides a comparison between the semantic situation of classical Greek, the language of the Church Fathers and Biblical Greek. It specifically demonstrates that no (threefold) hierarchy of the terms of love has existed in any period. A comprehensive view of the wide spectrum of Biblical words for love is presented (it is not limited to ἀγαπᾶν, φιλεῖν, ἐρᾶν, στέργειν...

Ohlasy satisfakční teorie ve spise Richarda ze Sv. Viktora Ad me clamat ex Seir

References to the Satisfaction Theory in Richard of Saint-Victor's Writing Ad me clamat ex Seir

Radomír Bužek

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):41-58 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.039

In his celebrated writing Cur Deus homo, Anselm of Canterbury († 1109) proposed the first systematical treatise on Christian soteriology in history. The greatest influence of Cur Deus homo lies in the concept of Christ's redemption which is interpreted as satisfaction, with this being the specific idea which continues to attract the attention of theologians. One of the first promoters of Anselm's idea was Richard of Saint-Victor († 1173), who, in his work Ad me clamat ex Seir, focused on the idea of satisfaction in connection with the additional soteriological questions. In comparison with Anselm's, however, Richard's concept of satisfaction...

"Ústa svá jsi proti nebi otevřel", aneb na okraj jednoho papežského pokárání olomouckého biskupa Roberta

"You Have Opened Your Mouth against Heaven" or Notes to a Papal Reprehension to Bishop Robert of Olomouc

Vít Hlinka

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):59-79 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.040

The article focuses on Olomouc bishop Robert (1202-1240) and attempts to discover the reasons behind his resignation. Pope Gregory IX issued a papal bull in 1237 in which he condemned Robert for his public rejection of reverence for the stigmata of St. Francis of Assisi, as he did not deem them genuine. Thus, within the context of the relevant events at that time, Robert criticized important aspects of papal policy. In order to determine the broader motives for Robert's denial of the stigmata of St. Francis of Assisi, the text analyses written evidence of Francis having received the stigmata, the documents of the church authority's opinions on the...

Zdroje filozofického myšlení Karla Rahnera

Sources of Philosophical Thought in Karl Rahner

Jiří Dvořáček

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):80-94 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.041

The article deals with the basics of metaphysics of the German theologian Karl Rahner, as it developed in his key works Geist in Welt and Hörer des Wortes. In both cases, the article pertains to the second edition of both works, which are revised and supplemented. The starting point for the philosophical thinking of Karl Rahner can be seen in four philosophical streams: the classical scholasticism of St. Thomas Aquinas, Immanuel Kant's transcendental reflection, the intellectual dynamism of Joseph Maréchal and the existential philosophy of Martin Heidegger. More specifically, the scope of the article is to explore the question that is the fundamental...

Okrskové vikariáty - koordinační rovina řízení pastorace

The Vicariate Forane - a Coordinating Pastoral Management Level

Monika Menke

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):95-107 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.042

The vicariate forane connects parishes, as local communities, and dioceses, as the local (particulate) church. A forane vicar (dean), a close collaborator with the diocesan bishop, stands at its head. In this article, we have summarized the rights and obligations of the vicar as they are specified in the common law plus the particular normative of the Olomouc Archdiocese. The vicar competencies are implemented on three levels: the vicar relationship with his vicariate clergy, the vicar relationship with the laity of the vicariate, and the vicar relationship with his own bishop and the diocese leadership. The vicar function is pastoral-coordination...

Biblistika v ČKD: důvody ke chvále i ke kritice. Testováno na dvou tématech: jazyk Nového zákona a Marie Magdaléna

Biblical Studies in ČKD: Reasons for both Praise and Critique. Tested with Two Topics: the Language of the New Testament and Mary Magdalene

Ladislav Tichý

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):111-122 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.044

ČKD (Journal for/of Catholic Clergy), which was published in Czech in 1828-52 and 1860-1948, also contained a number of articles on Biblical topics. This article attempts to test the quality of the contributions concerning the language of the New Testament (one article from 1852) and Mary Magdalene (articles from 1830, 1865, 1916, and 1937). Although this is undoubtedly a pioneering work (on the importance of a knowledge of the language of the New Testament) and an effort to serve the readers and corroborate the liturgical tradition (in the first three articles on Mary Magdalene), a more searching critique and better discernment would have been desirable...

Karel Statečný jako morální teolog a jeho pokus o novou koncepci etiky

Karel Statečný as a Moral Theologian and His Attempt to Establish a New Concept of Ethics

Jiří Vogel

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):123-138 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.045

The paper concentrates on Karel Statečný's contribution to the field of moral theology and ethics. It evaluates the current discourse on Statečný's life and work, his activity in the Department of Moral Theology in České Budějovice and his attempt to establish a new concept of ethics. Finally, it sets out a hypothesis regarding the persistence of the Statečný's concept of ethics in the Czechoslovak Church after his death in 1927.

Víra a přírodní vědy (1850-1950): Časopis Národního muzea, Museum - list bohoslovců česko-moravských, další doplňky a upřesnění

Faith and the Natural Sciences (1850-1950): Časopis Národního muzea, Museum - list bohoslovců česko-moravských, Further Supplements and Specifications

Ctirad Václav Pospíšil

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):139-167 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.046

In this paper the author presents publications which are significant for revealing the attitudes of Czech Catholic theologians to the challenges of the natural sciences in the period 1850-1950, published in the periodicals Časopis Národního musea and Museum bohoslovců českomoravských. He subsequently evaluates in detail the so-called Braun thesis introduced by an important exponent of evolutional thinking in Bohemia of the second half of the 19th century J. L. Čelakovský and points out to the risk of an inclination to pantheism connected with it. Finally, the not-contradictoriness between the definition of man as "an animal capable of sin" on the one...

Česká liturgika 19. století na stránkách ČKD

The Czech Liturgy of the 19th Century in the Pages of ČKD

Pavel Kopeček

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):168-181 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.047

Based on a study of liturgical articles in the Journal of the Catholic Clergy (Časopis katolického duchovenstva), I point out the concept of the liturgy in the Czech environment and the formation of the liturgy. I introduce certain important Czech figures who were engaged in the liturgy and who are worthy of our attention.

Richard Špaček o Janově evangeliu: Kapitola z dějin české biblistiky

Richard Špaček on the Gospel of John: A Chapter from the History of Czech Biblical Studies

Dominik Opatrný

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):182-191 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.048

Richard Špaček (1864-1925) is primarily known as Professor of dogmatic theology and Dean of Sts Cyril and Methodius Faculty of Theology in Olomouc. It is, however, less known that he began his academic career as a New Testament scholar. This article analyses his paper "The Fourth Gospel in Protestant Scholarship", published in the periodical Journal of the Catholic Clergy (Časopis katolického duchovenstva) in 1909. I claim that Špaček composed this text, which is a compilation of several German sources, with two intentions. First, he aimed at providing the Czech Catholic clergy with an answer to the translation of Harnack's History of Dogma. Second,...

Ignác Veselý: teolog mezináboženských vztahů a překladatel Koránu

Ignac Vesely: Theologian of the Inter-Religious Relations between Christianity and Islam

Jaroslav Franc

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):192-210 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.049

The paper deals with the Czech theologian and Catholic priest Ignac Vesely (+1964) and his contribution to inter-religious relations between Christianity and Islam. The paper summarises his texts published in the periodical Journal of the Catholic Clergy (Časopis katolického duchovenstva) and describes his translation of the Koran (the first in the history of the Czech language) from Arabic to Czech. Ignac Vesely is presented as one of the predecessors of the declaration on the relation of the Church with non-Christian religions of the Second Vatican Council, Nostra aetate.

Fundamentálně-teologická témata v Časopise pro katolické duchovenstvo v prvním desetiletí jeho existence (1828-1838)

Fundamental-Theological Topics in the Periodical Journal for Catholic Clergy (Časopis pro katolické duchovenstvo) in the First Decade of Its Existence (1828-1838)

Eduard Krumpolc

Studia Theologica 2014, 16(4):212-224 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2014.050

The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that Czech Catholic theology was developing promisingly specifically in the first half of 19th century, when the periodical Journal for Catholic Clergy (Časopis pro katolické duchovenstvo) began to be published. Only publications dealing with fundamental-theological topics, which is the field of interest of its author, are focused on in the paper. The content of the publications is briefly evaluated and compared with the contemporary status of theological knowledge.
