Biblické argumenty apoštola Pavla v Gal 4,21-31

The Apostle Paul's Biblical Arguments in Gal 4.21-3

Ladislav Tichý

Studia Theologica 2009, 11(4):1-14

The article deals with the pericope Gal 4.21-31 (thus it is delimited by the author) in which the apostle Paul once more uses arguments from the Old Testament to convince the recipients of the Letter of the right way to reach justification before God. Actual quotations of the Old Testament are only in the verses 27 and 30. However, in the first part of the pericope (4.22-26) Paul alludes to the story of Abraham's two sons and two wives adding the interpretative key in v. 24: "these things are said allegorically". Although there is no consensus among authors in what sense Paul applies this principle to the biblical texts it is preferable to see here...

Zdôvodnenie vojny v prácach sv. Augustína

Justification of War in the Works of St. Augustine

Ivan Koniar

Studia Theologica 2009, 11(4):15-36

This paper examines Augustine's writings dealing with the justification of war, and concentrates on the thesis that Augustine has a reasonably coherent just war theory. It strives to explain what the main principles of that theory are and argues that Augustine's view of war is closely related to his general political and theological assumptions. The article starts with an analysis of selected works of Augustine and demonstrates that Augustine does not subscribe to either of the two main rival positions on the issue in question, namely pacifism and permissivism. On the contrary, it is maintained that, according to Augustine, war - under some specific...

Zápas E. Rádla a J. L. Hromádky o možnost zjevení a teologie

The Defense of Emanuel Rádl and J. L. Hromádka of the Possibility of Revelation

Karel Skalický

Studia Theologica 2009, 11(4):37-46

This study sheds light on the argument of Emanuel Rádl concerning the need to admit the fact of Divine revelation and therefore also theology as science against the rationalist philosophy of Thomas G. Masaryk. It is Joseph L. Hromádka, who builds on Radl´s thinking and tries to constitute theology as science using Masaryk´s own philosophy. Hromádka´s attempt is set forth, clarified and moreover - is further elaborated here in the direction of the resurrection of Jesus (left out of consideration by Hromádka as well as his interpreter, Smolík).

Zmocněnci Ministerstva školství, věd a umění na biskupských konzistořích v období 1949-1967

Assignees of the Ministry of the Education, Science and Arts at the Episcopal consistories in 1949-1967

Tomáš Faber

Studia Theologica 2009, 11(4):47-57

This study deals with one of the methods used by the communist state authority to take control and paralyse the activities of the Catholic Church in Czechoslovakia during the period of communism. An important aspect of this activity was the isolation and neutralization of bishops and the gain of substantial influence on the course of Episcopal consistories in the dioceses. The administrators of the state's church policy were the assignees that were appointed to the consistories at the end of 1940s by the Ministry of the Education, Science and Arts. The reasons and the legal basis of the assignees' appointment, the scope of their activities and duties,...

Niektoré pastorálno-teologické dôsledky sociologického výskumu religiozity katolíkov na Slovensku z roku 2007

Some Pastoral-theological Consequences of Sociological Research on Catholic Religiosity in Slovakia in 2007

Ladislav Csontos

Studia Theologica 2009, 11(4):58-68

In 2007 the Department of Sociology of the Philosophical faculty of the University of Trnava together with the support of the Theology faculty of the same university held the first Slovak- wide representative research of catholic religiosity in Slovakia. The purpose was to improve the quality of pastoral theology lectures at all the Theology faculties in Slovakia. The sociological analysis is followed by our pastoral-theological reflections based on the research. The research showed that the life of Slovak Catholics is on the one hand strongly sacramentalised but on the other hand this is not adequately transformed into life in their community. Parochial...

The Relationship of the Church and Charity Seen Through the Eyes of Its Employees: The Survey Among Employees of the Diocese Charity Plzeň and Comparison of the Results with Selected Church Documents

Michal Opatrný

Studia Theologica 2009, 11(4):69-83

This study deals with the relation of the Charity to the Catholic Church, which is its founder and is based on the survey conducted on this topic among the employees of the Diocesan Charity Plzeň. Results of the above mentioned survey are compared mainly with conclusions of the Pastoral Constitution of the 2nd Vatican council Gaudium et Spes as well as with the Encyclical letter of pope Benedict XVI. Deus caritas est. The result is that employees of the Charity are open to the appropriate pastoral work, which in turn will support the social activities of the Charity as well as its concepts and core values.
