Translated tears : exegesis and politics in seventeenth-century versions of Lamentations

Barreiro-Isabel, E. J. 2005 (has links)
Chapter One focuses on the role of Jerome’s Vulgate at the intersection of interpretative practice and politics in humanist sixteenth- and seventeenth-century exegesis. Catholic and Protestant reactions to Jerome are represented by those of Donne and Quevedo. Chapter Two discusses the 1575 Tremellius Latin Bible and Martín Antonio Del Río’s 1608 Commentarius litteralis in Threnos. These were major sources respectively for Donne’s and Quevedo’s versions of Lamentations and are representative of the Calvinist mainstream in the English Church and of the Spanish-Jesuit slant in the Catholic Habsburg Empire. Chapter Three reads the implicit political dimension of Donne’s undated metrical paraphrase ‘The Lamentations of Jeremy, for the most part according to Tremellius’, in the context of the explicit political dimensions of his undated sermon on Lam 3.1 and his sermon on Lam 4.20 delivered on November 5th 1622. Chapter Four shows how Quevedo applies essential features of the Old Testament text as lessons applicable to Philip Ill’s Pax Hispanica, and sets his verse and prose commentaries in the context of contemporary commentaries on Tacitus, making explicit the political dimension of the text. Quevedo’s self-appropriation of the prophet Jeremiah and his Lamentations is an admonitory lamento patrius in the tradition of ubi sunt and an urgent call against the enemies of Spain and contrasts in form and explicitness with the 1609 version of the Franciscan Andrés de Soto. Chapter Five compares Donne’s and Quevedo’s appropriations of Jeremiah and his Lamentations, emphasising their handling of Jeremiah in the context of the topos of tears and laughter, and their treatment of the historical and allegorical dimensions of Lam 4.20 regarding the figures of the Biblical kings Zedekiah and Josiah. The interpretative and formal flexibility of exegetical practice makes possible a consideration of the similar and diverse ways and ends in which Donne and Quevedo appropriate the Biblical text and reflect the complexities and preoccupations of their age.  The Conclusion shows that the task of establishing similarities and differences in exegetical practice is complex and sometimes paradoxical.

A theology of disgust

Freeman, Doreen Patricia 2010 (has links)
'A Theology of Disgust' is a personal journey through the bodily experience of physical impairment and the social oppressions of sexism and disabilism. This journey has highlighted the extraordinary power of the emotion of disgust to distort relations throughout the natural order. Utilising the phenomenological approach of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and the theological critique and insights of feminist theologies as well as the resources of contextual theological reflection, a new appreciation of the human body and body of the earth is sought by engaging more viscerally with the fears (and hopes) of flesh which have troubled the Christian tradition. It is claimed that the effects of human disgust have compromised Christianity’s life giving message of divine love and God given power of relationality throughout creation. It argues for a deeper consciousness of the need for pyschic and social change in our human relationships, with each other and with the whole earth, believing this can be achieved through renewed ecomystical liturgy in the church, labelling and uncovering paralyzing fears so that the church could be seen as a beacon of hope and knowledge for all sentient life. A variety of methods to revitalise and empower liturgy are considered as pointers to enable the church to become an ‘ecclesial spa’ which would lead to deeper engagement with the often neglected physical realities within creation. The aim is also to help all those who suffer, to become theological agents of their embodied lives. The overall goal is to love at a deeper level those constitutive elements of the earth which sustain the world, before the disabled earth founders due to human indifference to both the joys and suffering of creation which, it is believed, are captured and held in tandem at the heart of the gospel of the incarnation and resurrection of Christ.
