    The development of the night office in the Šḥimō according to the manuscripts of Mor Gabriel monastery (1474-1900): A study in liturgical change2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis tries to answer the question of how the night office sluthō d-lilyō has developed in the Syrian Orthodox Antiochian tradition as it is expressed in the Syrian Orthodox prayerbook of ܫܚܝܡܐ Šḥimō - which is the prayerbook used on ordinary weekdays and Saturdays throughout the liturgical year except for the great Lent.

    One of the main liturgical scholars of the 20th century, Robert F. Taft S.J. (+ 2018), refined the methods of Anton Baumstark (+ 1948) and Juan Mateos S.J. (+ 2003), and studied how the Liturgy and Liturgy of the Hours have grown during the centuries. This thesis uses the method(s) of Taft and studies how the night office has grown by comparing the structure of this office in six manuscripts from the Monastery of Mor Gabriel in Tur-’Abdin – one of the major monasteries in the Syrian Orthodox world. The oldest manuscript in our study is dated to 1474 C.E. (perhaps the oldest dated MS of the Šḥimō in the entire world). Few studies have looked into how the Šḥimō tradition has changed during the centuries and in this thesis we will take the night office as an example of liturgical growth and development.

    The Shhimo of 1890 and 1934 - Uniformity or diversity?2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The ܫܚܝܡܐ Shhimo is the prayer book for normal weekdays of the Syrian Orthodox Church and it was officially printed for the first time in Dayro d-Kurkmo (Dayr Al-Zafaran) in 1890 with a printing press that Patriarch Ignatius Peter IV (+ 1894) had received in 1874 thanks to his visit to London and the Anglican Church. Prior to 1890 Shhimo was a diverse tradition expressed with different manuscripts in different monasteries showing a diverse use of different prayers and costumes. The second printing of Shhimo in 1913 and re-printing 1934, by the late Syrian Orthodox Patriarch Ephrem I Barsoum (+ 1957), was a reworked version of 1890 that included several important changes. This thesis will investigate what these changes were and what implications they carry for the understanding of Shhimo and for the Syrian Orthodox Church.

    In this paper we will also start to investigate the transmission process of the Shhimo and study some of the manuscripts prior to 1890.

    Anarchy and the Kingdom of God: From Eschatology to Orthodox Political Theology and Back2021Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Anarchy and the Kingdom of God reclaims the concept of "anarchism" both as a political philosophy and a way of thinking of the sociopolitical sphere from a theological perspective. Through a genuinely theological approach to the issues of power, coercion, and oppression, Davor Džalto advances human freedom-one of the most prominent forces in human history-as a foundational theological principle in Christianity. That principle enables a fresh reexamination of the problems of democracy and justice in the age of global (neoliberal) capitalism

    Abstract [en]

    The Coptic church became a nation in the time of pope Shenouda III (1971-2012) which is different from all the previous papacies. Additionally, the magnified role of the hierarchal body led to a deeply clericalized church community with unbalanced realms. More importantly, the difficulty to adapt with the social norms and legislative frames of the civil society in the modern state created a controversial reality with no specific stand towards an actual constructive worldview marked as an empty square

    Komparativ studie av eskatologins förståelse mellan väst och öst syrisk tradition2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Christ's words "do this in remembrance of me" (Luke 22:20) point to an eschatological realism realized in the gathering. The word of Christ institutes a liturgical praxis that was received by the ancient church and has since been practiced for several generations until today. The Syriac speaking churches, which are also in continuity with the Messianic faith, followed by the apostolic tradition, do not escape the question of eschatology, which is of great importance and central to Syriac Christianity. To answer the question of why eschatology is important in the Syriac tradition? is comprehensive, large and does not accommodate the scope of work. However, this work will try to answer the question of whether Jacob of Serugh's eschatological thinking develops in relation to Ephraim in comparison to Isaac the Syrian. Therefore, this work will try to get a glimpse of the eschatological basic view within the understanding of Syriac Christianity. There will be a positioning of Jacob of Serugh in relation to Ephraim the Syrian with comparison to Isaac the Syrian to gain a better understanding of the direction that emerges during the turning point of the fourteenth century in connection with those ecclesiological battles during that time. It may not provide an answer to everything but certainly an answer to where we started this development regarding eschatology.

    I want to thank my supervisor, Michael Hjälm for the good advice, support and guidance through the work. I also hope that reading this essay will be useful and continued studies in the subject.

    Hagiographical discourse in Medieval Arabic Christianity: A study of Anthony al Qurashi and Bulus ibn Raja as a discourse of parrhesia2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have faced many challenges in the classification of the literary genre of the hagiographical texts. In addition to their various styles and structures, hagiographical texts tend to move beyond the classical rhetorical approach. So, it is preferable to regard hagiography as a discourse which was mainly written for the purpose of the production of new heroes through the imitation of Christ and His holy men/women.

    The hagiographical discourse continued in Early Medieval Arabic Christianity, yet its purpose has expanded to address both Christians and Muslims. Through the examination of the Arabic hagiographical texts of two neo-martyrs, Anthony al-Qurashi and Būlus ibn Raja, it has been revealed that Christians pursued the figure of speech of parrhesia to address the mixed audience. On the one hand, to urge Christians to behold to their faith and, on the other hand, to encourage Muslims to convert.

    Anastasius of Sinai and His Participation in the Monothelite Controversy2019In: Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, ISSN 0013-9513, Vol. 95, no 3, p. 505-527Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Anastasius of Sinai was one of the most creative theologians in the period when Late Antiquity was transforming to the Middle Ages. His passionate rhetoric targeted the Christological unorthodoxies of his time, primarily Monenergism and Monothelitism. In his polemics against these doctrines, Anastasius creatively elaborated on the arguments of his predecessors. He developed a complex, and sometimes surprising, taxonomy of Christ’s activities and volitions. This taxonomy included mixed human-divine, pure divine, and pure human energeiai and wills, which, to Anastasius, proved duality of Jesus Christ.

    Abstract [en]

    The article examines various theological aspects of the perception of the coronavirus pandemic in the global Orthodoxy in general and the Russian Orthodox Church in particular. Among other aspects, it touches upon issues pertinent to the practices of celebration and distribution of the Eucharist under the conditions of hygienic restrictions. It also explores Christological arguments in support of each practice. The article proposes some particular interpretations of both phenomenology and etiology of the so‑called Covid dissidence. It argues that artificial polarization on the ideological grounds between the so‑called “liberals” and “conservatives” is one of the reasons why many bishops, priests, and laypeople in the Russian Orthodox Church mistrust the quarantine measures.

    Abstract [en]

    The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has affected in nuanced ways variousreligious niches and subcultures. This article explores some reactions to thepandemic as they have been developed and articulated in the Russian OrthodoxChurch. These reactions are diverse and often not public. On the upper levelof the church’s leadership, the official standpoint of the Russian hierarchy isusually coherent with the official policies of the Russian state. On the lowerlevels, lay persons, priests, and even bishops often disobey the official line andpropagate opposition to the anti-COVID-19 measures.

    Abstract [en]

    Can a compilation from the past be creative? Does the notion of tradition contradict the idea of innovation? The case of a Syrian theologian, who lived in the Arabic caliphate when Antiquity turned to the Middle Ages, whose name was John of Damascus, demonstrates that the answer to both questions can be positive, contrary to the common wisdom. The article explores the concepts of Tradition with capital T, traditions with lower case t, and traditionalism, through the prism of the writings of John. It argues that the best illustration to what tradition was for John, is not the famous »Black square« by Kizimir Malevich, but the Farbstudie Quadrate by Wassily Kandinsky.

    Abstract [en]

    Eastern Orthodox Christianity has developed a wide variety of theories and practices of meditation. Among these, this chapter covers the contemplation of sins, the recitation of the Jesus prayer, hesychasm, and the contemplation of Divine Light. This latter form of meditation, where God’s uncreated Light is revealed to the individual, is particularly important in the Eastern Christian tradition, as it is linked to theosis, the human capacity to seek and reach divinization. This is not only important as an individual goal but also a key theological notion in Eastern Christianity. The chapter ends by considering the present interest in meditation practices within this tradition.

    Abstract [en]

    The article explores the document For the Life of the World: Toward a Social Ethos of the Orthodox Church (FLW) in the contexts that had instigated its promulgation. It maps this document in the coordinates of the Orthodox political theology during the long twentieth century. FLW corresponds to a line in “the theology of the 1960s,” which advocated for liberal democracy and against anti-Westernism. The article argues that FLW fulfills the unaccomplished mission of the Panorthodox council in producing a comprehensive Orthodox social doctrine. It compares FLW with the social corpus adopted by the Russian Orthodox Church during the 2000s.

    Imago Dei, imago Trinitatis, and imago Christi according to Anastasius Sinaita2021In: Imago Dei. Forscher aus dem Osten und Westen Europas an den Quellen des gemeinsamen Glaubens / [ed] Theresia Hainthaler, Franz Mali, Gregor Emmenegger, and Alexey Morozov, Innsbruck: Tyrolia , 2021, p. 395-402Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper explores some original ideas of Anastasius Sinaita about human beings as imago Dei. He developed these ideas in the context of polemics against various anti- Chalcedonian and Monothelite groups. Speaking about imago Dei, Anastasius dif- ferentiated between the image of Christ, image of God, and image of the Trinity. All three sorts of image are reflected in the humankind in different ways. Thus, Anastasius presented the first human family, which consisted of Adam, Eve, and their son, as the reflection of the Father, the Holy Spirit, and the Son. Human soul, for him, is the re- flection of the divine essence. In the framework of this imagery, Anastasius argued that the human activity and volition are images of God’s energeia and thelema. Therefore, in Christ they coexisted without confusion or conflation into a single activity and will.

    The article explores the phenomenon of nationalism in general and its Eastern Christian nuances in particular. It describes two major theories of nationalism: modernist and primordial. It also distinguishes between two stages of nationalism: emancipatory and oppressive. The former is healthier than the latter. The article focuses on the Orthodox editions of nationalism, which seemingly coheres with the traditional structure of local churches. In the Orthodox world, national particularity combined with ecclesial locality, can be either ethnic or civilizational. In the former case, it enhances a homogeneous national identity of the Balkan style. The latter case is an Orthodox neo-imperialism, which is incompatible with nation-building on the basis of one ethnicity. Their incompatibility often leads to conflicts and even wars.

    Patristics and Sociolinguistics2019In: Scrinium, ISSN 1817-7530, E-ISSN 1817-7565, Scrinium, ISSN 1817-7530, Vol. Advanced Articles, p. 1-10Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper suggests a new hermeneutical take on receptive patristics. Receptive patristics means here the ways in which patristic texts are perceived in the community of patristic scholars and in ecclesiastical communities. The perceptions of the patristic materials that these two kinds of communities demonstrate are not always convergent. Their divergence can be explained on the basis of the distinction between normative linguistics and sociolinguistics. Ecclesiastical communities tend to treat the language of the Fathers and Mothers of the church in coherence with the way in which the proponents of normative linguistics treat the phenomenon of language. Patristic scholars, in contrast, usually treat them along the line of sociolinguistics. The approach to the language, which is applied by sociolinguistics, if adopted by ecclesiastical communities, could lead to a better understanding between them. It could foster the ecumenical rapprochement between confessional traditions, especially if they are based on patristic identities, such as in the case of Byzantine and Oriental churches. The academic method of sociolinguistics, thus, can be applied to the ecumenical studies and can positively contribute to practical ecumenism.
