Abstract

The meaning of "reformatory theology" is often summarised by a number of "alone"-statements: Christ alone (solus Christus) by grace alone (sola gratia) through faith alone (sola fide) on the basis of the Scripture alone (sola scriptura). But can these terms express concisely what recent (Protestant) Christianity stands for? The articles look into this question from a systematic, historical and ecumenical perspective.

Abstract

"The Protestant Reformation began in Germany in 1517, and the adoption of Lutheranism was the decisive impetus for literary development in Finland. As the Reformation required the use of the vernacular in services and ecclesiastical ceremonies, new manuals and biblical translations were needed urgently. The first Finnish books were produced by Mikael Agricola. He was born an ordinary son of a farmer, but his dedication to his studies opened up the road to leading roles in the Finnish Church. He was able to bring a total of nine works in Finnish to print, which became the foundation of literary Finnish. 

The first chapter outlines the historical background necessary to understand the life’s work of Mikael Agricola. The second chapter describes Agricola’s life. Chapter three presents the Finnish works published by Agricola. The fourth chapter is a depiction of Agricola’s Finnish. Agricola carried out his life’s work as part of a network of influential connections, which is described in chapter five. The sixth chapter examines the importance of Agricola’s work, research on Agricola and Agricola’s role in contemporary Finnish culture. The book mainly focuses on language and cultural history, but in terms of Church history, it also provides a review on the progression and arrival of the Reformation to Finland.

Finnish is a Uralic language but the source languages of Agricola’s translations – Latin, German, Swedish and Greek – were all Indo-European languages. Thus, the oldest Finnish texts were strongly influenced by foreign elements and structures. Some of those features were later eliminated whereas others became essential constituents of standard Finnish. To illustrate this development, the Finnish in Agricola’s works has systematically been compared with the standard contemporary language."

Abstract

Das vorliegende Buch "Differenzen und Interferenzen" ist eine Sammlung wissenschaftlicher (slavistischer) Studien, die vom Autor im deutschen bzw. englischen Sprachraum bereits veröffentlicht oder vorgetragen wurden. Als Ganzes ist es jedoch den südosteuropäischen Themen zugeordnet, wobei sich die einzelnen Beiträge konsistent in drei Problemkreise einordnen ließen. Der erste Kreis zeichnet sich durch grundsätzliche theoretische und literarhistorische Texte aus. Der zweite Kreis gilt den Fragen der Entstehung der Slavistik als einer wissenschaftlichen Disziplin und der Problematik, die ihr durch die vielseitigen Aktivitäten J. Kopitars auferlegt wurde. Den dritten Kreis bilden jene Texte, deren Thematik auch ein breiteres Lesepublikum anzusprechen vermag: die Entstehung und Entwicklung der slovenischen Literatur.
