Am 3,3-8: obhajoba proroka, nebo charakteristika Božího slova v knize Ámos?

Am 3:3-8. Apology of a Prophet, or a Characterization of God's Word in the Book of Amos?

Adam Mackerle

Studia Theologica 2016, 18(1):1-19 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2016.001

The passage in the Book of Amos 3:3-8 is often understood as Amos' apology for his own prophetic mission, arguing that Amos (like any other of God's prophets) had no choice but to proclaim God's message when the Lord talked to him. After a detailed analysis of the passage, its structure, words and especially its internal logic and also taking in consideration the context of the entire third chapter, the author proposes a somewhat different interpretation. The text from Amos characterizes the nature of God's word of judgement present in the third chapter and in the Book of Amos as a whole. It explains the Lord's decision to punish expressed in 3:1-2...

Racionalita ako základ duchovného rozvoja: Analýza alegorickej exegézy v Živote Mojžiša II,1-18 od Gregora z Nyssy

Rationality as the Basis of Spiritual Development: An Analysis of Allegorical Exegesis in the Life of Moses II,1-18 by Gregory of Nyssa

Helena Panczová

Studia Theologica 2016, 18(1):21-32 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2016.002

Gregory of Nyssa's allegorical exegesis in the Life of Moses II,1-18 is extremely coherent and well structured. There is one main idea - the development of human ra¬tionality. This is expressed in three images demonstrating its gradual growth and final sovereignty: the baby boy threatened with death, a Hebrew fighting with an Egyptian, and a shepherd tending sheep. A supporting stream of images speaks about the changing role of profane culture in this process (the ark and Pharaoh's daughter, the Hebrew and the Egyptian, and Moses at the water sources in Madiam). The passage ends with the image of the sovereign rule of reason as the basic prerequisite...

Niekoľko postrehov k liturgickej "reforme" Jozafáta Kunceviča

A Few Remarks on the Liturgical "Reform" of Josaphat Kuncevič

Šimon Marinčák

Studia Theologica 2016, 18(1):33-41 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2016.003

The Archbishop of Polotsk Josaphat Kuncevič supposedly supervised over the editorial work on the liturgicon published in Vilnius in 1617, although the references sug¬gesting this do not appear very persuasive. Such a reference, however, cannot be neglected and a survey of the sources is consequently necessary. The present paper demonstrates the extent of Josaphat's reforming efforts in the liturgical ritual, based on three documents of his authorship, the Catechismus, the Regulae, and the Constitutiones. The liturgicon Vilnius of 1617 has also been examined. A comparison of Jospahat's intentions published in his documents with the liturgicon Vilnius...

Stvoření a(neb) příroda: K hermeneutickému přístupu raně novověké teologie ve vztahu k přírodní vědě

Creation and(or) Nature: On the Hermeneutical Approach of Early Modern theology in Relation to the Natural Sciences

Lucie Kolářová

Studia Theologica 2016, 18(1):43-62 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2016.004

The text examines Early Modern theology's explanation of the world and nature in the context of the gradually differing hermeneutical approach of the natural sciences. Using the criterion of systematic theoretical difference, distinguishing from an objectivi-sing and performative perspective, it reflects on the nature of the approaches of theology and natural science as they are being shaped in the Late Middle Ages (Nicholas of Cusa, nominalism) and during the Early Modern period (theologia naturalis, Baroque scholasti¬cism). The text refers to the interconnectedness at the time of metaphysical rationality with the religious world-view and looks...

Získanie príslušnosti k cirkvi sui iuris podľa platného zákonodárstva katolíckej cirkvi

Ascription in a sui iuris Church in the Current Legislation of the Catholic Church

Miroslav Adam

Studia Theologica 2016, 18(1):63-80 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2016.005

The author intends to analyse the discipline of the ascription of a certain sui iuris Church and the passage from a certain sui iuris Church to another after the promulga¬tion of the Codex Iuris Canonici of 1983 and of the Codex Canonum Ecclesiarum Orientalium of 1990. The traditional rule that children belong to the rite of the father, in a marriage in which the parents belong to different sui iuris Churches, has never been questioned in canon law. After the promulgation of the CIC and the CCEO, which contemplate the pos¬sibility of the ascription of children in the sui iuris Church to which the mother belongs "… si ambo parentes concordi...

Diakonie v perspektivě teorie sociálních systémů

Diakonia from the Point of View of the Social Systems Theory

Karel Šimr

Studia Theologica 2016, 18(1):81-95 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2016.006

This article is devoted to the differentiation of diakonia in modern society based on Niklas Luhmann's social systems theory. It first addresses the inner differentiation of the religious system, the framework of which is to assign diakonia the task of creating a re¬lationship to other systems of society. Dierk Starnitzke attempts to formulate theologically a diakonia-code which facilitates diakonia in order to receive input from other systems it relates to, while at the same time, maintaining its identity. The article further reflects on the formation of the diaconal work-structures at the three levels where social systems operate: interaction,...

The Institute "Stefania" and the Activity of the Sisters of Mary Ward in Prešov in 1882-1918

Miroslava Špaková

Studia Theologica 2016, 18(1):115-133 | DOI: 10.5507/sth.2016.008

The positive impact of secularization lies in the restoration of those religious orders and congregations which were responsible for the education of youth in the 19th century. These orders founded schools for young girls who were educated in manners, Christian doctrine prepared for their role as mothers. In Prešov, part of former Hungary, at present a city in Slovakia, the sisters of Mary Ward established a finishing school. The study captures the internal development of the school from its beginning to the point of the establishment of the first Czechoslovak Republic. More types of schools were located within the institute which shaped the overall...
