CURSOR_: Identität

The second issue of Cursor_, the journal for explorative theology, is about the question of what "Christian identity" is and how early Christianity succeeded in forming Christian identity in ethnically mixed groups? It is about individual and collective identities and whether identity formation must always lead to exclusion or appropriation of the other? A topic with numerous facets and with a lot of conflict potential.


Uwe Israel, Marius Kraus, Ludovica Sasso (Eds.): Agonale Invektivität. Konstellationen und Dynamiken der Herabsetzung im italienischen und deutschen Humanismus

What does humanism mean, who belongs to the humanists? This was clarified by contemporaries, not least through diatribes. The authors of the 17th volume of the “Beihefte” (supplements) to the journal “Das Mittelalter. Perspektiven mediävistischer Forschung" examine in an interdisciplinary synopsis these mutual personal disparagements as a means of asserting one's own positions.

Jérôme Verdoot: Une clôture hermétique? Isolement régulier et intérêts séculiers au monastère Saint-Pierre de Lobbes, VIIe–XIVe siècle

Au Moyen Âge, les abbayes bénédictines justifiaient leur existence par leur isolement du monde. Mais pour survivre, les abbayes devaient échanger des biens ou des services avec leur environnement politique et économique en dehors des murs du monastère. Jérôme Verdoot examine ce paradoxe de la vie monastique à travers l'exemple des moines qui ont vécu à l'abbaye Saint-Pierre de Lobbes (Hainaut, Belgique) du VIIe à la fin du XIVe siècle.
