Abstract

Mit der Ausrufung Deutsch-Ostafrikas zur Kronkolonie des deutschen Kaiserreiches 1891 begann ein weiteres Kapitel seiner offiziellen Kolonialgeschichte. Inwieweit deutsche protestantische Missionsgesellschaften „kolonialbegeistert“ das neuerrungene „deutsche“ Gebiet, das sich in etwa mit der Fläche des heutigen Tansanias deckt, als neues Missionsfeld für ihre Missionstätigkeit in Anspruch genommen haben, ist Gegenstand dieses Buches. Die Erarbeitung dieser Thematik erfolgte aus kritischer, religions–wissenschaftlicher, nicht aber missionstheologischer Perspektive.

Abstract

In a time when conservative politicians challenge the irrefutability of scientific findings such as climate change, it is more important than ever to understand the conflict at the heart of the “religion vs. science” debates unfolding in the public sphere. In this groundbreaking work, John H. Evans reveals that, with a few limited exceptions, even the most conservative religious Americans accept science’s ability to make factual claims about the world. However, many religious people take issue with the morality implicitly promoted by some forms of science. Using clear and engaging scholarship, Evans upends the prevailing notion that there is a fundamental conflict over the way that scientists and religious people make claims about nature and argues that only by properly understanding moral conflict between contemporary religion and science will we be able to contribute to a more productive interaction between these two great institutions.

Abstract

The grand thesis that the spirit of Protestantism is one of modern capitalism's great driving forces originated from Max Weber. According to him, religious foundations of inner world asceticism, Luther's concept of vocation, Calvinism, and English Puritanism had a direct influence on the development of modern kinds of economy. The thesis was not undisputed and to this day remains a prominent starting point for discussions. What can be said now in the twenty-first century about the spirit of capitalism? Do ethics still hold any sway over global financial markets and systems of production? This volume's four authors seek answers to these and other related questions from different perspectives.

Abstract

The law's cultural and especially its religious contexts present a fresh challenge to a globalised world. Did the Reformation's demand for the abolition of canonical law have particular consequences for legal development? Various answers are given to this question. It has been the objective of recent confessionalization research to highlight the uniformity of confessions and their cultural effects. There is great concern that, as happened a hundred years ago, Protestantism is once again being awarded a special proximity to modernity. The authors of this volume discuss the consequences the Reformation had for the development of various branches of the law. In the sense of a comparative analysis, Catholic law is also investigated for the connection between law and morality.
