Religion und Sprache- Religion and Language


Edited By Marietta Calderón Tichy and Georg Marko

Die Beiträge dieses Buches untersuchen verschiedene Fragestellungen zu religiösen Bezügen in nicht-religiöser Sprache, etwa in Redewendungen, Ortsnamen, Ökonomie-Diskursen oder politischer Rhetorik, und zu nicht-(nur-)religiösen Konstruktionen in religiöser Sprache, etwa in Gebeten und anderen sakralen Texten, Ritualen oder religiösen Traktaten. Dabei werden unterschiedliche linguistische Methoden angewandt, von der Diskursanalyse bis zur Onomastik, von der Soziolinguistik bis zur Metaphernanalyse. In vielen Aufsätzen wird interdisziplinär gearbeitet, etwa mit Input aus Bereichen wie der Literaturwissenschaft oder der Geschichtsforschung. Die untersuchten Daten stammen aus verschiedenen Sprachen, darunter Aramäisch, Bosnisch, Deutsch, Englisch, Französisch, Hebräisch, Italienisch, Katalanisch, Kroatisch, Latein, Portugiesisch, Sefardisch und Spanisch.

The contributions to this book explore various questions concerning religious aspects and references in non-religious language, whether in idioms, place names, economic discourses or political rhetoric, and non-religious (among other) aspects and references in religious language, whether in prayers, sacred texts, rituals and religious treatises. The research presented applies a variety of methods, ranging from discourse analysis to onomastics, from sociolinguistics to metaphor analysis. The data come from languages such as Aramaic, Bosnian, German, English, French, Hebrew, Italian, Catalan, Croatian, Latin, Portuguese, Ladino and Spanish.

Zach Gordon & Erica Sosa Pray What You Mean Balancing Integrity of Belief and Continuity of Tradition in a Secular Humanistic Jewish Congregation 1. Introduction This paper analyzes how a Secular Humanistic Jewish congregation balances shared norms of integrity of belief and continuity of tradition through Hebrew language use (cf. Chalom 2009). Secular Humanistic Judaism (SHJ) advances a human-centered, non-th.eistic philosophy, while maintaining a connection to traditional Jewish practices. Our find- ings indicate that integrity of belief is enacted by creatively rewriting traditional Hebrew language prayers to reflect SHJ ideology, for example, by excluding any mention of G.od and changing...
