Tudor Arghezi between sacred and profane
Cristina SAVA
Studii de Stiinta si Cultura , 2013,
Abstract: The study Tudor Arghezi between sacred and profane” proposes an approach of the dialectic of sacred-profane inside the arghezian creation, in the terms of the perpetuation of the sacred sense. The poet is addressing the divine authority and is also assuming the responsability of the imaginary dialogue. The research is based on preliminary studies of literary criticism, out of the controversy of which emerges the image of homo duplex in a monumental ars poetica . The conscious of the limits coexists with the aspirations towards certainty, towards essential communication with a deus absconditus . The desire of transcending intertwines with the dramatic character of the knowledge. The tensions generated by the tribulations of an ece homo lead to an attitude that seems to oscillate between faith and hide .
The semiotics of the sacred  [cached]
Bernard LAMIZET
Essachess : Journal for Communication Studies , 2011,
Abstract: What is called sacred is an identity, a practice or a social actor who escapes ordinary social practices. In the 18th century, Kant call transcendancy a non religious way of sublimying identities, independant from space and time. So, speaking about sacred and transcendancy is a way to define political matters by their contrary. It is why sacred is a reference for psychic sublimation in unconscious crises. It is why psychoanalysis allows us to understand these forms of sublimation. Sacred is questioned when political identities are contested, and it is why sacred is a more important reference in middle age times (christianism and cathedrals building) or, today (islamic or other religious references). On the contrary, secularism, which means separation between political powers and religious identities, is a major way of taking distance from sacred matters.
CONSTRUCTION OF THE SACRED IN THE MOVING IMAGE
Ine?s GIL
The Turkish Online Journal of Design, Art and Communication , 2012, DOI: 10.7456/10202100/003
Abstract: Contemporary moving image (film and video) is looking for a new form of expressing the sacred, after decades of refusing all kinds of explicit “religious” content. The notion of Sacred changed with the social evolution and today its representation is directly related to the image of reality, that allows a sincere and immediate contact with the viewer. The body’s image can be a strong mediator between the expression of the sacred and reality, because it questions the position of man in the world and its relation to others. Bill Viola and The Dardenne Brothers – among others, are directors who work with a totally different cinematographic form but they have the same challenge: to reveal the potential sacred of life through light and image movement.
The sacred, philosophical and sociological Janus  [cached]
Marcel BOLLE DE BAL
Essachess : Journal for Communication Studies , 2011,
Abstract: Symbolically, Janus, as the god of initiations, is supposed to be the Sacred's keeper. The Sacred, like Janus, has two faces : the religious and the non-religious one. The latter has a reconnecting function. As an illustration of its reality is presented its specific existence inside Free-masonry. Are successively analysed the relations between the Sacred and divinity, humanity, secret, profane and modern communication.

Marriage in the theology of Martin Luther – worldly yet sacred: An option between secularism and clericalism
J Buitendag
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2007,
Abstract: Marriage, according to Martin Luther, is an institution both secular and sacred. It is secular because it is an order of this earthly life. But its institution goes back to the beginning of the human race and that makes marriage sacred, a divine and holy order. It does not – like the sacraments – nourish and strengthen faith or prepare people for the life to come; but it is a secular order in which people can prove faith and love, even though they are apt to fail without the help of the Word and the sacrament. The author applies this view of Luther in terms of two unacceptable extremes: the creation ordinances of Brunner and the analogy of relation of Barth. The dialectic of Law and Gospel should never be dispensed. HTS Theological Studies Vol. 63 (2) 2007: pp. 445-461

Abstract: Marriage, according to Martin Luther, is an institution both secular and sacred. It is secular because it is an order of this earthly life. But its institution goes back to the beginning of the human race and that makes marriage sacred, a divine and holy order. It does not – like the sacraments – nourish and strengthen faith or prepare people for the life to come; but it is a secular order in which people can prove faith and love, even though they are apt to fail without the help of the Word and the sacrament. The author applies this view of Luther in terms of two unacceptable extremes: the creation ordinances of Brunner and the analogy of relation of Barth. The dialectic of Law and Gospel should never be dispensed. Marriage is necessary as a remedy for lust, and through marriage God permits sexual intercourse. Similar is the allegory which Paul employs: that Adam and Eve, or marriage itself, is a type of Christ and the church.
Technological, mediatic and cultural hybridisation: Cultural mediations in the context of globalisation  [PDF]
Laan Mendes de Barros
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 2009,
Abstract: We live in a context of borders that are dissolving in many senses, of the convergence and hybridisation of technologies, mass media and cultures. The context is the resizing of practical time, of movements and links between the local and the global. In these times of interculturality, communication plays a very important role; not so much in its technological media dimension, but particularly in the dynamics of cultural mediations that are dividing off from mediatised relations. This article aims to reflect on the transformations in present-day communication processes, marked by strong movements of hybridisation, as well as examining how to consider interculturality in the context of cultural mediations, based on dialogue between Latin American and French authors. Also, using media material, the article presents illustrations of the Brazilian cultural scene, which is marked by a long history of hybridisation that is filled with intercultural dynamics.

Advances in Orthopedics , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/987910
Abstract: Background. Pectoralis major tendon ruptures have been reported in the literature as occupational injuries, accidental injuries, and sporting activities. Few cases have been reported with respect to rodeo activities. Purpose. To describe a series of PM tendon ruptures in professional steer wrestlers. Study Design. Case series, level of evidence, 4. Methods. A retrospective analysis of PM ruptures in a steer wrestling cohort was performed. Injury data between 1992 and 2008 were reviewed using medical records from the University of Calgary Sport Medicine Center. Results. Nine cases of pectoralis major ruptures in professional steer wrestlers were identified. Injuries occurred during the throwing phase of the steer or while breaking a fall. All athletes reported unexpected or abnormal behavior of the steer that contributed to the mechanism of injury. Seven cases were surgically repaired, while two cases opted for nonsurgical intervention. Eight cases reported successful return to competition following the injury. Conclusion. Steer wrestlers represent a unique cohort of PM rupture case studies. Steer wrestling is a demanding sport that involves throwing maneuvers that may predispose the muscle to rupture. All cases demonstrated good functional outcomes regardless of surgical or non-surgical treatment. 1. Introduction Pectoralis major (PM) tendon ruptures have been reported in the literature. These ruptures present as occupational injuries [1, 2], accidental injuries [3], and sporting activities [4–7] primarily in weight lifting. Ruptures have also been reported in elderly patients during procedures for transferring, positioning, and dressing the patients [8–10]. Ruptures of the muscle belly typically present as the result of direct trauma or traction injuries. Falls onto outstretched arms often result in ruptures at the musculotendinous junction, whereas excessive tension on a maximally contracted muscle often results in ruptures of the tendinous insertion from the humerus [6, 8]. Sport-related PM ruptures usually result from activities requiring a large amount of upper body strength. Two articles have reported PM ruptures resulting from a rodeo event: one reported a professional bull rider who tore his left PM during a bull riding [11]; the other reported three cases of PM ruptures during steer wrestling but failed to describe the events surrounding the injuries [12]. These three cases are included in this study and reported in further detail. The purpose of this paper is to describe a series of PM ruptures in professional rodeo steer wrestlers in order to
The Plurality of the Sacred—Critical Remarks on Mircea Eliade’s Conception of the Sacred  [PDF]
Yaser Mirdamadi
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2015.57048
Abstract: Mircea Eliade’s conception of the sacred, confining it to religious sacred, is criticized. A more comprehensive model of the sacred, which includes non-religious sacred, is developed and human love is suggested as a good candidate for non-religious sacred.
