Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses
  • Mystical Theology and Contemporary Thought poj©peeters-leuven.be


  • For the Love of God! poj©peeters-leuven.be

    This contribution concretizes the intersection of medieval mystical theology and contemporary challenges in fundamental theology through a dialogue between a fundamental theologian, engaged in constructing a renewed and contemporary Christian theological self-understanding in dialogue with postmodern thought, and a specialist in the Middle Dutch mystical tradition. We first question the use of such an exchange: why are we engaging in this exchange and what do we hope to achieve? In a second step, we discuss negative theology, which has often been retrieved in postmodern theology and which is rooted in the mystical tradition. The similarities and differences between the tradition of negative theology and its postmodern retrieval are explored. Third, we talk about the ways in which postmodern thought, inspired by the mystical tradition, might stimulate contemporary theological debate. The contribution concludes with some reflections on the so-called spiritual revival that is currently occurring.

  • The Citizenship of Nowhere poj©peeters-leuven.be

    Taking as a starting point the views of certain British political theologians on the meaning of the vote for Brexit, I show how the moral and spiritual self-transcendence at the centre of the apophatic tradition can be used to critique their conservative communitarian conceptions of the common good, dependent as they are on closed reifications of identity and belonging. I suggest that an apophatic anthropology supports a political theology that is, instead, open, inclusive, and universalist. The resources of the Christian mystical tradition point towards an embracing of the interdependence and increasing connectedness of our globalising world and the new possibilities for human flourishing it creates. I conclude by considering a negative but inclusive model of ethical citizenship, a 'citizenship of nowhere', and how this can be the basis of transformative social and political action on issues of multiculturalism and immigration.
