Toward A Theology of Eros: Transfiguring Passion at the Limits of Discipline

Availability: Ready to download

What might it mean, at this particular moment, to theologize eros, to eroticize theology? The ascetic, the mystical, the seductive, the ecstatic-such are the places where the divine and the erotic may be seen to converge and love and desire to commingle. Such too are the shared interests that bring philosophers, historians, biblical scholars, and theologians into spirited What might it mean, at this particular moment, to theologize eros, to eroticize theology? The ascetic, the mystical, the seductive, the ecstatic-such are the places where the divine and the erotic may be seen to converge and love and desire to commingle. Such too are the shared interests that bring philosophers, historians, biblical scholars, and theologians into spirited conversation in a multi-vocal volume that traverses the limits of conventional orthodoxies, both disciplinary and theological. The eighteen chapters move fluidly across and between premodern and postmodern textual traditions-from Plato to Emerson, Augustine to Kristeva, Mechthild to Mattoso, the Shulammite to Molly Bloom, the Zohar to the Da Vinci Code. In so doing, they also link the sublime reaches of theory with the gritty realities of politics, the boundless transcendence of God with the poignant transience of materiality.

    Academic commentary is the worst kind of writing, often pompous and nearly unreadable; thus my low rating for this book. If you can cut through those obstacles, many of these essays contain glimmers of insight that any serious thinker will be grateful for, if for no reason besides the apparent dearth of material on the subject.
