Abstract

The volume is a programmatic manifesto for the new series MythoS. The author develops new methods - the hyleme analysis and the stratification analysis - and applies them on mythological materials, reconstructing myths as Stoffe and making them understandable in their polymorphic nature. In this groundbreaking work, the author sets the stage for a general theory of myth based on a new comprehensive, transmedial and comparative Stoff-research.

Abstract

Describing the boundaries of what society conceives as ‘religion’ means establishing a social order with its respective areas of politics, law, or science. These areas are sometimes opposed to what we conceal as ‘religion’. In this book, the social boundaries of religion are explored with a specific focus on threshold narratives in the contemporary history of religion.Threshold narratives, as mythopoetic forms of social self-description, are used to describe a new origin that not only includes a diagnosis, but also proposes a therapy to treat the diagnosed crisis. The positioning and limitation of religion in these threshold narratives is the condition that makes ‘religion’ governable. The analysis follows different metaphors of European religious history: the ‘end’, the ‘axis’ and the ‘hour zero’.Der Autor geht den Grenzen von Religion in der Ordnung der Gesellschaft mit einem spezifischen Fokus auf Schwellenerzählungen in der zeitgenössischen Religionsgeschichte nach. Er zeigt dabei auf, dass solche Erzählungen als mythopoetische Formen der gesellschaftlichen Selbstreflexion immer dazu verwendet werden, einen neuen Ausgangspunkt zu beschreiben, der nicht nur eine Diagnose, sondern gleichzeitig einen Therapievorschlag zur Behandlung der diagnostizierten Krise beinhaltet. Die in diesen Schwellenerzählungen vorgenommene Positionierung und Begrenzung von Religion gegenüber Recht, Politik oder Wissenschaft ist die Bedingung, unter der Religion überhaupt erst regierbar gemacht werden kann. Die vorliegende Analyse geht verschiedenen Metaphern in der europäischen Religionsgeschichte nach: dem ‘Ende’, der ‘Achse’ und der ‘Stunde Null’.

Abstract

Nachdem das Antikendrama im 19. Jahrhundert nur eine untergeordnete Bedeutung besaß, kommt es nach 1890 unter dem Eindruck von Nietzsches ""Geburt der Tragödie"" erneut zu einer intensiven Beschäftigung mit Figurationen der griechischen Antike. Die vorliegende Studie unterzieht Antikendramen von Hofmannsthal, Hauptmann, Werfel, Pannwitz, Jahnn und Brecht einer struktur- und gattungsbezogenen Analyse, um die Verschiebungen des den Texten zugrundeliegenden Mythosverständnisses zu spezifizieren.

Abstract

"Heroes have to die because they are human. Their death, however, may vary in its relevance to their status as heroic figures. In Greek antiquity, death is the prerequisite for heroisation; expecting to continue their existence in the afterlife, martyrs sacrifice their lives in acts of killing that are often taken to the extreme; the war hero follows the call to commit his life to a greater good, without death being the necessary goal. Based on examples from the time between antiquity and the present age, the contributions to this book show from an interdisciplinary perspective how heroic action, dying, and death are respectively related to each other and how the representations of heroic dying mediate between heroes and their audience. The essays discuss questions such as: How do heroic figures die? What role does violence play in the process? How is the hero’s death presented and staged? What types of media in particular lend themselves to depictions of heroic death and the death of the hero? With contributions byAchim Aurnhammer, Cornelia Brink, Ulrich Bröckling, Jürgen Dendorfer, Nicolas Detering, Peter Eich, Nicole Falkenhayner, Andreas Gelz, Olmo Gölz, Joachim Grage, Barbara Korte, Dietmar Neutatz, Johanna Pink, Sitta von Reden, Anna Schreurs-Morét, Magnus Striet, Stefan Tilg, Ralf von den Hoff.

Abstract

Video game studies are a relative young but flourishing academic discipline. But within game studies, however, the perspective of religion and spirituality is rather neglected, both by game scholars and religion scholars. While religion can take different shapes in digital games, ranging from material and referential to reflexive and ritual, it is not necessarily true that game developers depict their in-game religions in a positive, confirming way, but ever so often games approach the topic critically and disavowingly. The religion criticisms found in video games can be categorized as follows: religion as (1) fraud, aimed to manipulate the uneducated, as (2) blind obedience towards an invisible but ultimately non-existing deity/ies, as (3) violence against those who do not share the same set of religious rules, as (4) madness, a deranged alternative for logical reasoning, and as (5) suppression in the hands of the powerful elite to dominate and subdue the masses into submission and obedience. The critical depictions of religion in video games by their developers is the focus of this special issue.
