Serbia and (anti)heroes
Pavi?evi? Olivera,Simeunovi?-Pati? Biljana
Sociologija , 2005, DOI: 10.2298/soc0502161p
Abstract: The paper considers a development and social meaning of social heroes, as well as the substance, functions and dichotomies of heroism, with particular view on those conditions in a social system that enable and facilitate a mutual approximation and symbolic and functional alternation of its diverse categories. The situation in Serbia during the last two decades was particularly the object of attention in an attempt to fortify the assumption that extreme turbulent processes inside the social space, followed by willing and substantial antisocial activity of certain favorably positioned groups, as well as by specific processing of social reality by those unfavorably positioned, "ordinary" people, make possible the conversion of classic antiheroes into social heroes.
The future existence of the believers according to 2 Thessalonians  [cached]
Pieter G.R. de Villiers
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2011, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v67i1.912
Abstract: This article investigated the presentation of the future existence of the believers in Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians. It analysed how the eschatological language of this letter reflects a situation in Thessalonica which has grown worse since the writing of 1 Thessalonians. It went on to explain to readers how this situation is handled by reflecting on it in terms of a divine plan and by portraying a future in which their suffering will come to an end. A close reading of some passages in 2 Thessalonians which speak of the dispensation which will follow on the glorious return of Christ at the end were presented during the course of this article. It investigated Christ’s glorification at his return and delineated the way in which this return affects and determines the existence of those who accepted Paul’s proclamation of the gospel. The future glory of the Lord is revealed, experienced and shared by believers in a mystical manner. The article ended with a brief discussion on the traditions which determined this perspective, the context in which the eschatological portrait must be understood and how the portrait of the future serves to support the community of saints in their time of suffering.

éTICA DE LOS CREYENTES ETHICS OF BELIEVERS  [cached]
Pedro Jesús Pérez Zafrilla
Veritas : Revista de Filosofía y Teología , 2011,
Abstract: En el presente trabajo analizo la relación existente entre las creencias religiosas de los individuos y sus actitudes ante ciertos asuntos morales y políticos. En algunas ocasiones, ciertos comportamientos de los creyentes contradicen las doctrinas de las religiones que afirman profesar, sin que ello les haga sentirse menos creyentes. Esta disonancia entre las doctrinas y las creencias de los fieles puede explicarse mediante el concepto de la privatización de las creencias religiosas, según el cual en la actualidad las creencias religiosas han perdido la objetividad que tenían en el contexto de monismo moral. De este modo, las convicciones de los creyentes se ven influidas de una manera determinante por las influencias sociales a la hora de interpretar y aplicar los dictados de su religión en la vida real. In this paper I analyze the relationship between religious beliefs of individuals and their attitudes to certain moral and political issues. In some cases, certain behaviours of believers contradict the doctrines of the religions that they claim to profess, although they don't feel less faithful. This dissonance between religious doctrines and beliefs of a religion's followers can be explained through the concept of the privatization of religious beliefs, according to which at present, religious beliefs have lost their objectivity in the context of moral monism. Thus, the believers' convictions are influenced by the social influences on the way the believer understand and apply the dictates of their religion in real life.
‘Heroes of the Heart’: Ideal Men in the Sacred Heart Devotion  [cached]
Tine Van Osselaer
Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality , 2009,
Abstract: The article focuses on the complexity of Catholic heroism(s) and more specifically on the rhetoric on heroic men in the Apostolat de la Prière and its spin-off movement, the League of the Sacred Heart. It points at the specificity of Catholic heroism and its (partial) correlation with sanctity. It thereby discusses the recurring “types” of heroes and their “heroic qualities” and questions the importance of these heroes’ “masculinity”.
Архетип сокровенного града в символическом пространстве старообрядчества Archetype of the ‘Invisible city' in the Russian Old Believers’ symbolic space  [cached]
Kirill Tovbin
Cultural Geography & Geohumanities , 2013,
Abstract: В статье рассматриваются пространственные мифологемы Китежа и Беловодья в преломлении старообрядческого мировоззрения. Заимствовав эти архетипы из русской православной традиции, староверы вписали их в собственный контрсекулярный проект . В статье показаны различия в интерпретации двух мифологем – нематериального Китежа и труднодоступного Беловодья. Доказывается, что от староверов эти архетипы перешли в общенародную русскую культуру, заложив некоторые особенности российского коллективного бессознательного. The article focuses on the spatial mythologemes of Kitezh and Belovodye belonging to the Russian Old Believers. Having borrowed these archetypes from the Russian Orthodox tradition, the Old Believers made them a part of their project. The differences between the immaterial Kitezh and hardly accessible Belovodye are described. The author argues that these mythologemes have become a part of Russian folk culture and collective unconscious.
ANTHROPONYMY AS AN ELEMENT IDENTIFYING NATIONAL MINORITY. THE CHARACTERISTICS OF POLISH OLD BELIEVERS’ NAMES  [PDF]
Magdalena Ziolkowska
Eesti ja soome-ugri keeleteaduse ajakiri , 2011,
Abstract: The paper focuses on Polish Old Believers’ anthroponymy as the element identifying the group. The Old Believers are one of the ethnic, religious and national minorities in Poland. They came here shortly after the schism in Russian Orthodox Church. They settled down in North-Eastern Poland in the second half of the 18th century. Their descendants live there till now. After coming to Poland, Russian immigrants were living in hermetic, homogenous communities. This protected their religion and culture from strong exterior influence. After the Second World War the community became more open to external world. Nowadays, after a number of civilizing and geopolitical transformations, the isolation practically disappeared making the Old Believers’ culture defenceless against influence of dominant Polish culture. Together with all that changes the Old Believers’ anthroponymy has been transformed. Contemporary Polish Old Believers’ anthroponymy consists of Russian and Polish (in Masuria region – Russian, Polish and German) elements, as a result of bilingualism (and multilingualism on Masuria).
The Exemplary Lives of Christian Heroes as an Historical Construct  [cached]
Alexander Maurits
Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality , 2009,
Abstract: In this text I examine how leading theologians within the Church of Sweden during the latter half of the nineteenth century elaborated on historical men as heroes in public speeches and in their works on the history of Christianity. The Christian hero as a prototype for contemporary Christians was emphasized within an evolving nationalistic discourse. The historical hero was of crucial importance for the idea of society as an organism and the conception of history and its development which some of the leading theologians within the Church of Sweden fostered. By analyzing the hero we can also elucidate the theologians’ view of manliness and masculinity. Thus the role of the heroes can be found at the intersection of ecclesiology, historiography, nationalism and gender.
