Ztracená ovce (Mt 18,12-14; Lk 15,4-7)

The Lost Sheep (Mt 18:12-14; Lk 15:4-7)

Ladislav Tichý

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(1):1-17

The relatively short parable of "The Lost Sheep", whose versions are not only in the New Testament in the Gospels of Matthew (18:12-14) and Luke (15:4-7), but also in the apo-cryphal Gospel of Thomas (log. 107), poses several questions for its interpreters. For the author of the article, the origin of the parable in the preaching of Jesus and the secondary character of the version in the Gospel of Thomas are sufficiently clear. The oldest form of the text cannot be determined, however, with certainty. Notwithstanding the editorial work of the third evangelist, the context of the parable in Lk 15:4-7 seems to correspond in all probability to the situation...

Ježíšovo vzkříšení v Sk 2,14-41

The Resurrection of Jesus in Act 2:14-41

Petr Mareček

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(1):18-41

The resurrection of Jesus, which is the pivotal theme of the New Testament and the central element of the preaching of the early Church, is also the main subject matter of Peter's Speech at Pentecost (Acts 2:14-41), the first public proclamation of the gospel, at which time the activity of the Church begins as well. The crucial importance of the resurrection of Jesus in this speech is evident both in the speech's structure and content. The compositional organization of the speech, which originates from the author of Acts, emphasizes a threefold dimension: to expound the event of Pentecost (2:14-21), to announce the resurrection of Jesus (2:22-36) and...

Teologie mezi kontinuitou a diskontinuitou. Nástin postmoderní metody teologie u Lievena Boeve

Theology between Continuity and Discontinuity: An Outline of the Postmodern Theological Method in Lieven Boeve

Martin Kočí

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(1):54-79

The Flemish systematic theologian Lieven Boeve is a promoter of serious theological engagement with contextual critical thinking. The aim of this study is to present Boeve's interpretation of the contemporary context of Christianity, which he refers to as Postmodern and consequently point out the challenges posed by Postmodernity toward systematic theology. This includes, on the one hand, a critical evaluation of Modernity as the preceding epoch and, on the other hand, an evaluation of the theological methods which deal with the Modern world (i.e. correlation and anti¬ Modern theology). Finally, there is an analysis of Boeve's attempt to discover...

Katolická církev ve světle Věstníku katolického duchovenstva

The Catholic Church in the Light of Věstník katolického duchovenstva

Martin Weis

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(1):80-98

In April 1949, the Communist regime officially terminated the last free Catholic press in Czechoslovakia, the official diocesan circulars. In its stead the uniformly printed Věstník katolického duchovenstva (Bulletin of the Catholic Clergy) was published by the State department for churches in Prague over 1949-54. This study, based on this publication, presents the image of the diocese's religious life in South Bohemia, as imposed by Communist propaganda. Using selected examples, the study confronts the information provided by the Věstník katolického duchovenstva with the reality based on the testimony of South Bohemian archives.

Animace liturgie

Animation of Liturgy

Zdeněk Demel

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(1):99-120

This paper deals with the animation of the liturgy. The general idea of animation is presented initially followed by a description of the animation of liturgy. Liturgical animation is a process which needs to be managed by a group of people: some of them participate in the animation directly and the others indirectly. The animateur, who is in charge of the liturgical celebration, plays an especially important role. He or she, along with others, develops the project and program of the liturgical celebration and then directs the process of its complete preparation. Animateurs of liturgy must have, of course, adequate qualities and abilities. After the...

Právně-pastorační aspekty pohřbívání

Legal and Pastoral Aspects of Burial

Tomáš Kotrlý

Studia Theologica 2011, 13(1):121-154

The objective of this paper consists of an organic comparison of close relationships mutually linking Canon and Liturgical laws, ecclesiastical funeral rites and popular piety. It serves to remind one of the principles guiding these relationships, and in offering an assessment of their implementation in the Czech Roman Catholic Church under its specific tradition. The author describes in historical sequence the major trends in burying practices inside a church, in the cemetery and in the crematorium under Church and civic regulations. The author has also drawn from particular norms which have been laid down at the Bishops' conference, the individual...
