The Armenian Church in Soviet Armenia

The Policies of the Armenian Bolsheviks and the Armenian Church, 1920-1932

Jakub Osiecki

This book presents the results of comprehensive study on the history of Soviet Armenia and the Armenian Church in the years 1920-32. Through documents uncovered in the Communist Party Archive in Yerevan and the Georgian Historical Archive, press antireligious propaganda, oral testimonies, and biographical interviews conducted by the author, The Armenian Church in Soviet Armenia expands the discussion on the history of the Armenian Church in the 20th century, especially regarding the relations between the spiritual leaders of the Armenian Church and the Bolsheviks. In accordance with stipulations laid out by the Central Committee in consultation with the GPU, Khoren Muradbekian was elected as the Catholicos of All Armenians. His election was the principal reason behind the schism inside the Church– which, especially in the Armenian diaspora, divided not only clergy, but laymen themselves. These divisions, even after hundred years, are still vivid in Armenian society.

Eucharistic Communion and Rituals of Communion in Igbo Culture

An Integrative Study of Liturgy, Faith, and Culture

Mary-Reginald Anibueze

This book elucidates the dynamism of culture and how cultural expressions are often intertwined with religious expressions. The Catholic Church, while conscious of profound cultural diversities of her members, earnestly seeks to inculturate the gospel message in different cultures for a better expressed, experienced, and lived Catholicism in the modern world. Relational and theological expressions of Eucharistic communion increase in wealth and meaning when Christians of different races and cultures are able to understand the global call to unity and interconnectivity in the world today. Relating the clear theological and relational aspects of Eucharistic communion to the traditional rituals of communion expressed in Igbo culture, enriches both the encountered faith and lived culture. The rituals of communion in Igbo tradition studied, Emume Oji (Ritual Breaking of the Kolanut), Iri Ji Ohuru (New Yam Festival), and Igba Oriko (Reconciliation Ceremony), are still prevalent and valued among the Igbo people. These rituals pilot and determine the wellbeing of present and future generations of Igbo people. An integrative study of liturgy, faith, and culture, this book establishes the theological and relational aspects of both the traditional rituals of communion in Igbo culture and the Christian understanding of Eucharistic communion, for a truly inculturated Eucharistic theology.

The Faces of Depression in Literature brings together some of the best-known specialists and scholars on the topic of depression in literature worldwide to offer a multidisciplinary approach concerning the philosophical, theological, and literary narratives of depression over time and their approximations to the current, clinical understanding of Major Depressive Disorder. The authors clarify the background of depression by paying attention to its representation through these narratives and revalue them as a means of acquiring knowledge in an interdisciplinary way. This pioneering initiative fills the knowledge gap that still exists concerning the nature of depression from a multidisciplinary perspective that takes into account some cross-cutting narratives. The authors give voice to the forgotten manifestations of depression found in literature, philosophy, theology, and even early medical works. The Faces of Depression in Literature is for graduates and researchers on depression from a cultural and social point of view, including philosophers, historians, cultural theorists, literature and art experts and enthusiasts, as well as artists and writers themselves, specialists in mental health and cognitive psychology, and anyone interested in a better understanding of the human condition.

Individualstrafen im Kartellrecht

Die Bekämpfung von Hardcore-Kartellen

Series:

Maren Laura Rüdesheim

Die Frage, wie besonders schwerwiegende Kartellverstöße bekämpft werden sollen, beherrschte in den vergangenen Jahren angesichts spektakulärer Kartellfälle die rechtspolitische Diskussion. Bereits bei Einführung des GWB im Jahr 1958 und wieder in den 1970er und 1980er Jahren wurde die Einführung von Kriminalstrafen diskutiert. Bis heute ist der deutsche Gesetzgeber von seiner Entscheidung – Hardcore-Kartelle vornehmlich mit den Mitteln des Kartellordnungswidrigkeitenrechts zu verfolgen – nicht abgerückt. Dennoch mehren sich die Stimmen, die sich dafür aussprechen, Hardcore-Kartelle von der Ordnungswidrigkeit zur Straftat zu erheben. Die Autorin greift die Diskussion auf und befasst sich vertiefend mit der Frage einer Strafbewehrung von Hardcore-Kartellen. Sie zeigt die Notwendigkeit einer strafrechtlichen Regelung auf und stellt die mögliche Ausgestaltung eines Kartellstraftatbestandes dar.

La culture comme facteur d’européisation

Le rôle de l’argument culturel dans la politique européenne de la Grèce (1944-1979)

Series:

Antigoni-Despoina Poimenidou

Ce livre examine les initiatives gouvernementales grecques dans le domaine de la culture, leur relation à la politique européenne ainsi que le rôle de l’argument culturel dans le cadre des efforts de la Grèce en vue de son insertion dans la famille européenne du lendemain de la Seconde guerre mondiale jusqu’à la signature du traité d’adhésion à la CEE (1944-1979).

Dès la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale, les gouvernements grecs choisissent l’Occident à travers l’affirmation de la priorité à l’ancrage européen de leur pays. A la suite de la création de la CEE, la Grèce réussit à devenir le premier pays associé à la CEE (1961). Ce processus, interrompu par la dictature (1967-1974), se conclut par la signature du traité d’adhésion en 1979. Mais à côté de motivations économique, ce choix renvoyait en réalité à des motivations beaucoup plus profondes.

Relevant de l’histoire des relations internationales et plus précisément de l’histoire de l’intégration européenne durant la période d’après-guerre, ce livre cherche à combler les lacunes historiographiques sur les relations entre la Grèce et l’Europe occidentale, en donnant une image renouvelée de cette relation au-delà de sa dimension économique. Il s’agit d’une tentative d’expliquer comment se développe une politique culturelle, comment cette politique est liée aux questions d’identité, de modernisation et d’appartenance à un certain environnement, et dans quelle mesure les initiatives dans le domaine culturel constituent le cœur de la politique européenne de la Grèce.

Peilin Li, Jingdong Qu and Yabin Yang

La Chine de la première moitié du 20ème siècle a connu de nombreux bouleversements dont la fin des dynasties, les mouvements pour la république, les Seigneurs de guerre, de multiples invasions … Elle a aussi vu son milieu culturel et académique s’épanouir. Pendant cette période, la sociologie chinoise contemporaine a pris forme, s’est développée, et a exercé une influence non négligeable dans le monde intellectuel. La variété des approches et la qualité des recherches en sociologie ont atteint un niveau remarquable. Les travaux réalisés durant cette période constituent un héritage précieux et une base solide et incontournable pour les recherches contemporaines en la matière. Après l’arrêt de toute recherche sociologique pendant presque 30 ans (les années 50–80), il est important et intéressant de faire connaître les chercheurs qui ont bâti la sociologie chinoise d’aujourd’hui, ainsi que leurs travaux, aux étudiants et chercheurs de nos jours.

This book takes a narrative-critical approach to the meaning and function of debate in the Gospel of Mary. The debate scene in the Gospel of Mary has been interpreted with the assumed framework of the Gnostic-orthodox conflict and feminist biblical studies’ particular interest in the gender issue. When approached narrative-critically, the portrayal of the debate is fundamentally concerned with the narrative’s rhetoric of persuasion. The function of the debate scene is meant to make truth-authority claims by appealing to the authority of divine revelation and the authority of the shared knowledge about Mary, the Savior’s favorite, according to the two models of authority, which were widely used in antiquity (i.e., revelatory authority and literary authority). Scholars and students who are interested in early Christian texts and methods of interpretation could use this book to gain a new look into the meaning of the texts, especially the roles of the interactions among the characters.

Scholars and postgraduate students in the humanities comprise this work’s primary audience. However, all those interested in contemporary China will find in it an accessible key to decode China’s present and past.

Rechtspraktikerliteratur und neuhochdeutsche Schriftsprache

Conrad Heydens Klagspiegel und Ulrich Tenglers Laienspiegel

Series:

Barbara Aehnlich

In der Frühen Neuzeit kam es durch die Rezeption des römischen Rechts in Deutschland zu einer Umgestaltung des Rechtssystems. Die Anwender des neuen Rechts waren oftmals nicht universitär ausgebildete Laien, für die lehrbuchartige Texte auf Deutsch verfasst wurden. Zwei dieser Rechtsquellen – der Klagspiegel Conrad Heydens und der Laienspiegel Ulrich Tenglers – werden in der vorliegenden Arbeit in einem interdisziplinären Forschungsansatz hinsichtlich ihrer sprachlichen Gestaltung sowohl qualitativ als auch quantitativ ausgewertet. Dabei werden die Bemühungen um eine überregionale Verständlichkeit und die Etablierung juristischer Fachtermini, die Verwendung von Paarformeln und Handlungsanweisungen für die Rede vor Gericht sowie die längerfristige Entwicklung der Texte beleuchtet.
