    "Brödet är ett, brutet för alla...eller?": Om nattvard, dess öppenhet och konsekvens2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to study the Eucharist in three Protestant church traditions, based with a special interest in its openness and consequences. Are there any restrictions who can receive communion? What importance do these traditions attach to the Lord's supper; what consequences does it have? The essay is based on four documents, an ecumenical document from the World Council of Churches, and a document each from the United Methodist Church, the Church of Sweden and the Uniting Church in Sweden. The investigation concludes that the Church of Sweden is not completely consistent in its view of the Eucharist - the Eucharist is a meal for the baptized, but practice can vary. The presence of the Holy Spirit and the connection between the Eucharist and sanctification are less emphasized in the Church of Sweden, while it is stressed in the Uniting Church in Sweden and the UnitedMethodist Church. The author concludes that the communion table should be open to all who seek it. He also longs for a communion revival in his own Church community, which is The Uniting Church in Sweden.

    Jesus: En historisk crash course2023 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Jesus sa ”följ mig” och idag har han fler följare än någon kändis på Instagram. Men vem var han? Bibelforskningen har sökt svaret på den frågan i 250 år. Förslagen är många: en politisk revolutionär, en hippiefilosof, en judisk rabbin, en bondeprofet, en karismatisk helare – eller bara Guds son. Den här boken tecknar en skiss av den historiske Jesus och diskuterar hur han är relevant för kristendomen idag.

    Baptism in missions – Baptism Practice within Svenska Missionsförbundet 1878–1928

    During the 19th century the evangelical revival movements were gaining land in the Lutheran Sweden. Methodism, Baptistic congregations and neo evangelical Lutherans were al spreading their doctrines in the country. They were all united by the conviction to awake the population for a personal belief in Jesus Christ. To reach the non-believers in other parts of the world also united their movements. But in the second half of the century the doctrinal differences between the movements, especially between the Baptists and the neo-Lutherans are splitting the revival into two different branches, the first is the Baptistic free church movement (Svenska Baptistsamfundet) and the second is the neo-Lutheran revival movement (Evangeliska Fosterlandsstiftelsen) that still operated within the Lutheran state church. At the year of 1878 a new mission society (Svenska Missionsförbundet) sees the light of day. And one of new movements leaders, Paul Petter Waldenström, strives for the new organisation to unite al the Swedish mission-friends for the greater cause despite their differences in view of doctrine. He doesn’t succeed in that manner but the new organisation will as a result of the doctrinal dilemma not include any specific view on baptism in its own principles of doctrine. The new congregations, formed within Svenska Missionsförbundet (SMF) will therefore accept al believers of Christ as members even if they are baptised as infants or as Baptists. In this manner this new mission organisation gains the role of the “third way”, right in the middle of the Baptistic and the neo-Lutheran organisations. What is even more unique and also the subject for this paper is how this new mission-movement could be conducting missions around the world without deciding what doctrine on baptism that it should embrace. What baptism practice did SMF use in its early missions? And what role did the dilemma on doctrine of baptism play when SMF was founded in 1878?

    Kyrkbänksteologi: En studie av gudstjänstfirares liturgiska praktikers teologi2023Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to explore the theology of worshippers’ liturgical practices and to answer how theology appears in and through the worshippers’ liturgical practices. The studied phenomenon is theology in the liturgical life. This is researched through a case study where the unit of analysis is the theology of the worshippers’ liturgical practices. The empirical material is generated through methods inspired by ethnography: a field study with participant observations, and interviews. The abductive analysis is carried out in four steps with two types of theoretical resources: practice theories, and theological theories. With a strong concept of practice, I identify eleven liturgical practices: to sit, to listen, to receive, to give, to create community, to gather, to pray, to sing hymns, to read the Bible, and to confess. By using Natalie Wigg-Stevenson ́s and Christian Scharen ́s theological interpretation of practice theory, I show how theology appears as bodily knowledge that is incarnated by the worshippers and passed on to other worshippers. By showing what it is to be habituated as a worshipper, I reveal how agency varies and affects the worshippers. I show through the analysis how the worshippers conceive God as an agent whom they direct their practices toward. In that way it is possible to understand the liturgical practices as the worshippers’ ways of relating to God, whom they have gotten to know through those same practices. Therefore, I argue that theology is both embedded in and expressed through the liturgical practices. Using the “four voices of theology”, inspired by the ARCS-team’s (Helen Cameron, Deborah Bhatti, Catherine Duce, James Sweeney, and Clare Watkins) methodological framework, I then study how the aspect of language in theology relates to the liturgical practices. Various theological voices are identified. The analysis shows how the articulation of theology is characterized by polyphony and that the worshippers can, at least in part, articulate the theology of the liturgical practices. I argue that it is possible for the theology of liturgical practices to be articulated into spoken language by the sayings of worshippers. With the help from theories about theological wisdom, borrowed from the theologian Paul S. Fiddes and others, I highlight how theology emerge when the worshippers articulate their experiences of liturgical practices. The analysis, using phronesis, sofia, and hokmah, shows how the worshippers know God through the liturgical practices. The worshippers experience theology in and through the liturgical practices and can, at least in part, articulate it. Hence, I argue that there is a dynamic relationship between the personal and communal concerning the body and language as aspects of theology. This relates to the theology in the liturgical life. Thus, I discuss how the theology of the worshippers’ liturgical practices is in motion wherever worshippers engage in practices. The theology is relational by being created in the common social field where the meaning of worship is shared. I also discuss how the theology is lived by the worshippers, in the liturgy and with a God whom they know as a living God.

    Som spridda sädeskornen: Perspektiv på nattvardens levda teologi2024Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I många av Svenska kyrkans församlingar firas mässa en eller flera gånger i veckan. Nattvarden är i högsta grad både aktuell och angelägen – och den engagerar. Med anledning av en ny kyrkohandbok 2017 och ett biskopsbrev om nattvarden 2020 har såväl gamla som nya frågor väckts, och diskussionen om nattvarden har intensifierats. Inte minst har förhållandet mellan teologin i de nya normativa dokumenten och den levda teologin i församlingarna aktualiserats. Till detta samtal samlar den här antologin tolv skribenter från olika akademiska och kyrkliga traditioner för att ge perspektiv på nattvarden i Svenska kyrkan idag. 

    Bokens kapitel behandlar exempelvis frågor om språk, musik, praktik, barn och delaktighet. Här diskuteras också nattvarden i förhållande till ämnen som ekumenik, klimat, diakoni och digitalisering. Historiska perspektiv blandas med analyser av nutida praktiker och teologiska nytolkningar för vår tid och framtid. Till synes spridda sädeskorn från den teologiska forskningen möts med utgångspunkten att nattvarden är central – för såväl kyrkan i stort som den enskilda gudstjänstfiraren.

    Medverkande: Teresia Derlén (red.), Judith Fagrell, Ulrica Fritzson, Elin Lockneus, Mattias Lundberg, Frida Mannerfelt (red.), Michael Nausner, Karin Rubenson, Carina Sundberg, Karin Tillberg, Andreas Wejderstam, och Johannes Zeiler.

    Abstract [en]

    A study among novice clergy shows that for some the encounter with local congregations in the Church of Norway has been quite demanding in that they have experienced a mismatch between the content and emphasis of their training and their everyday tasks. From a practical theological perspective, and drawing on knowledge and practice theory,the article discusses how this problem can be interpreted. It is argued that rather than being a matter of insufficient knowledge resources, this indicates a normative discrepancy between the theological and liturgical ideals that the novice pastor brings from his/her training, and local congregational traditions. Finally, there is a discussion of how the training can deal with this challenge.

    Putting a tired dichotomy to rest: Steven Pinker and the problem of nature and nurture2024In: Steven Pinker: Critical Reponses / [ed] Ray Scott Percival, Berkeley: Open Universe , 2024Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    From great classics of literature to Psychology 101 the question of nature or nurture seems to haunt us. It is quite a surprise then to read that Steven Pinker sees it as ‘a tired dichotomy’ that one better ‘think around’.[1] It soon becomes evident though, that he spends much time and though on the question rather than ignoring it. Not unlike Raskolnikov, the question leaves Pinker no rest. He even devotes 500 pages to it in The Blank Slate.[2] It was not so simple to ‘think around’ the question of nature versus nurture after all. It can even be argued that the dichotomy between nature and nurture, heredity and environment, is of central importance if we are to critically evaluate Pinker’s thinking about the human being at all.

    The relationship between the social on the one hand and the biological on the other is a lynchpin into Pinker’s anthropology. Or if we are to borrow Pinker’s image about verbs,[3] nature versus nurture is a rabbit hole, small and insignificant, but once you enter it, a whole world is opened up. The question of nature/nurture reveals some critical points about Pinker’s view of the human being at large. But in order to reveal those greater questions we need to begin with the question of how Pinker understands the relationship between nature and nurture. [1] Steven Pinker, The Language Instinct: The New Science of Language and Mind (London: Penguin, 1995), 277.[2] Steven Pinker, The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature (New York: Penguin, 2003).[3] Steven Pinker, The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature (London: Penguin, 2008), 25.

    ”I See You”: Vulnerabitility and Integrity in Relation to Wide-Eye Surveillance2022In: Vulnerability & Integrity, 2022, p. 57-58Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Smart technologies, political circumstances, economy, and globalization are some of the factors that form a new era of surveillance – a condition Shoshana Zuboff descibes as surveillance capitalism. Some of the most important issues about tomorrow’s society and ethics concern these big arenas. But focus of this paper is not to address such big and complex matters, even though they are a necessary background out of which the limitations will be analyzed. Much of the inspiration for the discussion in this paper is influenced by philosophers, theologians, and scolars of political science, as they understand the practice of (potential) surveillance technologies as a re-mapping of the political as well as the human landscape. I will apply some examples from wide-eye surveillance in relation to vulnerability and integrity - two central sibling-concepts when it comes to interpretations of the human condition. Through this interaction I intend to show different interpretations of the concepts in focus, as well as the practise of surveillance.The content of this paper refers to three points of the call for paper, namely: clarification of the concepts; the impact, and political ethics. The themes are intertwined as the theoretical discussion mirrors the impact and vice versa. However, during the procedural analysis, one overall question will frame the paper, namely: How does vulnerability and integrity contribute to an understanding of what it means to be human in a surveillance society? To reflect on this question I will take my starting point from a conceptual analysis of integrity and vulnerability from a theological and a philosophical interpretation (Buber; Tillich;Butler). Whereas Buber and Tillich, more or less, identify an essence of being, Butler makes no such claim. Despite the theoretical differences between them, all three argue for the importance of vulnerability: as vulnerable we become human beings, facing each others existence. It is, I will argue, from the position as vulnerable one can relate to the understanding of integrity, since to be integer one’s integrity will become visible first when the integrity activates, when one faces a situation when the urge to protect or defend oneself occurs. A person’s integrity will be recognized as, for example, a feeling, a conscience, as an embodied experience or as an opinion.The second part of the paper concerns implications of integrity and vulnerability in relation to what it means to live in a surveilliance society. In this regard especially in relation to vision monitoring, for example the complexity of what CCTV’s and face-scanning may entail in an existential, political and ethical sense. Finally, to be clear, the main issue for the analysis in this paper is not to address surveillance per se, but to apply the concepts of vulnerability and integrity for a deeper understanding of those concepts in relation to the applied discussion.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I am not addressing populism and freedom of expression per se, i.e. as two issues that I closely focus upon. Rather the perspectives are intertwined in the overall discussions and examples. Surveillance technologies can be used to stimulate populism and limit freedom of expression, as well as they can contribute to the opposite.The outcome does not only depend on the technology and its capacities, but on the persons, citizens, states, religious groups, and companies who use it. After centuries of technological innovations alongside industrialisation, the concept of surveillance has been associated with a Big Brother society, i.e. asymmetrical surveillance by the state or employer to surveil citizens or employees with different tools, visible or invisible. The aims of surveillance are a multitude: protection, security,efficiency, steering of behaviour and opinions, prevention of unwanted actions, et cetera. After the 9/11 terror attack in New York and Washington in 2001, the idea and implementation of surveillance technology has increased unimaginably, in parallel with a political view of the ‘war against terror’, and in parallel with possibilities for advanced technology that has become an essential part of how we, as humans, understand our life as individuals and as communities. One consequence of the paradigm is a certain gaze upon religious communities, where some become more visible than others.

    Abstract [en]

    In April 1919, the publication of the first part of the edited collection Det andliga nutidsläget och kyrkan ("The Contemporary Spiritual Condition and the Church") caused an intense debate within the Church of Sweden and in the daily press. The editors of the book were driven by ideals of open and honest dialogue about religious and ethical reformation in a time of deep spiritual distress and invited contributions from academia and lay people as well as clergy. Some of the contributions have been analyzed in previous research, as examples of contemporary theological debates. This article presents an analysis of the contributions of the books and of the most salient themes in the debate, covering 192 newspaper articles between April 1919 and May 1920. The analysis contributes to previous research by the additional new material concerning how theological issues were connected to contemporary political and cultural debate. This concerns the implications of modernization in contemporary Sweden, such as individualization, social justice, and secularization. Furthermore, the debate in the newspapers, previously not thoroughly researched, highlights how the book became a locus for issues such as participation of the laity in theological debate, and the role of the Church as a public authority in a secular, modernized society. These themes present fruitful openings for further research on the role of Christian actors in new forms of public debate shaping modernity in Sweden.
