Herinneringen aan de Holocaust (eBook) Herinneringen aan de Holocaust,  

Eerste volume in de nieuwe reeks'Historisch denken'. Samenlevingen hebben een diepe drang om te herdenken en te herinneren. Zeker vandaag is het verleden alomtegenwoordig, en is er sprake van een ware memory boom. Collectieve herinnering is echter niet neutraal. Ze wordt ingezet in het nastreven van allerlei politieke, sociale, culturele en morele doelen. De noodzaak van een kritische houding tegenover herinnering dringt zich dan ook op. Herinneringen aan de Holocaust richt zich op de educatie over herinnering, en analyseert het selectieve, politieke en evoluerende karakter van herinnering. Het boek onderzoekt de verschillende vormen van herinnering en de gespannen relatie tussen herinnering en geschiedenis. Via de analyse van onder meer films, stripverhalen, musea, monumenten en memorialen focussen de auteurs zich daarbij specifiek op de evolutie van de holocaustherinnering vanaf 1945, in Europa en in de Verenigde Staten. Bovendien krijgt de lezer bij elk hoofdstuk verschillende didactische scenario's aangeboden, geschikt voor het secundair geschiedenisonderwijs. Kortom, een toegankelijk boekje voor iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in geschiedenis, en in het bijzonder een aanrader voor leerkrachten en al wie werkzaam is in de educatieve sector.

Charity and Social Welfare (eBook) Charity and Social Welfare,  

How churches in Northern Europe reinvented their role as providers of social relief. Charity is a word that fits well in the history of religion and churches, whereas the concept of social reform seems to belong more to the vocabulary of the modern welfare states. Christian charity found itself, during the long nineteenth century, within the maelstrom of social turmoil. In this context of social unrest, although charity managed to confirm its relevance, it was also subjected to fierce criticism, as well as to substitute state-run forms of social care and insurance. The history of the welfare states remained all too blind to religion. This fourth volume in the series'Dynamics of Religious Reform' unravels how the churches in Britain and Ireland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium shaped and adjusted their understanding of poverty. It reveals how they struggled with the'social question' and often also with the modern nation states to which they belonged. Either in the periphery of public assistance or in a dynamic interplay with the state, political parties and society at large, the churches reinvented their tradition as providers of social relief.

Universalism and Liberation (eBook) Universalism and Liberation, Jacopo Cellini

The changing attitude of Catholic culture towards modernity. After decades of a problematic, if not plainly hostile, approach to modernity by Catholic culture, the 1960s marked the beginning of a new era. As the Church employed a more positive approach to the world, voices in the Catholic milieu embraced a radical perspective, channeling the need for social justice for the poor and the oppressed. The alternative and complementary world views of'universalism' and'liberation' would drive the engagement of Catholics for generations to come, shaping the idea of international community in Catholic culture. Because of its traditional connection with the papacy and because of its prominent role in the map of European progressive Catholicism, Italy stands out as an ideal case study to follow these dynamics. By locating the Italian scenario in a broader geographical frame, Universalism and Liberation offers a new vantage point from which to investigate the social and political relevance of religion in an age of crisis.

Van mensen en muizen (eBook) Van mensen en muizen, Liesbet Nys

50 jaar onderwijs en onderzoek aan de Faculteit Geneeskunde. In 1963 werd de medische faculteit van de toen nog unitaire Leuvense universiteit gesplitst. Franstaligen en Nederlandstaligen volgden vanaf dan hun eigen koers. Aanvankelijk deelden zij nog de medische campus, maar nadat in 1968 de hele universiteit werd gesplitst, verhuisden de Franstaligen naar Brussel. Intussen was de Nederlandstalige Faculteit Geneeskunde al aan een langdurig expansieproces begonnen. Van mensen en muizen belicht de ontwikkelingen die zich de voorbije halve eeuw onder tien decanen - van internist Jozuë Vandenbroucke tot neurochirurg Jan Goffin - aan die Nederlandstalige Faculteit Geneeskunde hebben afgespeeld. ¿De auteur haalt professoren en studenten voor het voetlicht en ¿schetst de grote veranderingen in de onderwijsopleidingen en de onderzoekslaboratoria. Ook de ethische controverses engezondheidsdebatten gaat zij niet uit de weg.

Christian Homes (eBook) Christian Homes,  

Christian ideas on family, religion, and the home in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The cult of domesticity has often been linked to the privatization of religion and the idealisation of the motherly ideal of the'angel in the house'. This book revisits the Christian home of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and sheds new light on the stereotypical distinction between the private and public spheres and their inhabitants. Emphasizing the importance of patriarchal domesticity during the period and the frequent blurring of boundaries between the Christian home and modern society, the case studies included in this volume call for a more nuanced understanding of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Christian ideas on family, religion, and the home.

Mission&Science (eBook) Mission&Science,  

Science as an instrument to justify religious missions in secular society. The relationship between religion and science is complex and continues to be a topical issue. However, it is seldom zoomed in on from both Protestant and Catholic perspectives. By doing so the contributing authors in this collection gain new insights into the origin and development of missiology. Missiology is described in this book as a"project of modernity," a contemporary form of apologetics."Scientific apologetics" was the way to justify missions in a society that was rapidly becoming secularized. Mission&Science deals with the interaction between new scientific disciplines (historiography, geography, ethnology, anthropology, linguistics) and new scientific insights (Darwin's evolutionary theory, heliocentrism), as well as the role of the papacy and what inspired missionary practice (first in China and the Far East and later in Africa). The renewed missiology has in turn influenced the missionary practice of the twentieth century, guided by apostolic policy. Some"missionary scholars" have even had a significant influence on the scientific discourse of their time. La relation entre religion et science a beauêtre complexe et toujours actuelle, protestants et catholiques s'étaient rarement penchés sur le sujet. En se livrant à l'exercice dans ce livre, les auteurs ont fait de nouvelles découvertes sur la naissance et le développement de la missiologie. Celle-ci est décrite dans l'ouvrage comme un« projet de modernité », une forme contemporaine d'apologétique. Cette « apologétique scientifique » était le moyen par excellence de justifier l'existence des missions. Cette publication aborde tant l'interaction avec les nouvelles disciplines scientifiques (historiographie, géographie, ethnologie, anthropologie, linguistique) et les nouvelles théories scientifiques (évolutionnisme de Darwin, héliocentrisme) que le rôle de la papauté et l'inspiration de la pratique missionnaire (d'abord en Chine et en Extrême-Orient, puis en Afrique). Cette missiologie « enrichie » a à son tour agi sur la pratique missiologique du XXe siècle, soutenue dans cette voie par la politique apostolique. Certains « missionnaires savants » ont même influencé de manière remarquable le discours scientifique de leur époque.

Milk sauce and paprika (eBook) Milk sauce and paprika, Vera Hajtó

The compelling story of Hungarian children living with Belgian families during the interwar period. Children who migrated without their families were noteworthy participants of interwar European migration history. Milk Sauce and Paprika tells the story of Hungarian children who were sent to Belgium in the framework of a humanitarian project between 1923 and 1927. Based on a wide variety of sources such as official documents, contemporary newspapers, photographs, family correspondences, biographies and interviews, this book examines the history of the Belgian-Hungarian child relief project and describes its social and cultural impacts on the families involved in both countries. This compelling story of one of the first mass European child migration movements offers new insights in the dynamics of national and religious communities. Furthermore, it sheds light on intimate family life and contemporary habits and values regarding parenting and co-parenting in the interwar period. Cutting across national and cultural borders, this monograph connects individual and collective memory with the experiences of childhood and migration.

Religious institutes and catholic culture in 19th- and 20th-cent (eBook) Religious institutes and catholic culture in 19th- and 20th-cent,  

A broad perspective on the role of religious institutes in social and cultural practices This volume examines the cultural contribution of religious institutes, men and women religious, and their role in the constitution of Catholic communities of communication in different European countries (England, Germany, Liechtenstein, the Low Countries, the Nordic Countries, Switzerland). The articles focus on social and cultural history by comparing both discourses and cultural and social practices, as well as examining international networks and cultural transference. How did religious institutes function as cultural elites in the production and mediation of knowledge, ideologies, cultural codes, and practices? What kind of discursive and operational strategies did they use to help construct and propagate social Catholicism, ultramontanism, and confessionalism, and to establish and promote the Catholic communication system? What were the central mechanisms in the production of knowledge and how were they incorporated within identity politics? The volume also takes a broad perspective on the role of religious institutes in the production and propagation of religious, cultural, and social practices, and in the socialisation of the Catholic population. The focus is on cultural practices, on the transmission and transformation of attitudes, and on the rites and customs in everyday religious and social practices.

The Pious Sex (eBook) The Pious Sex, Tine Van Osselaer

The construction of gender in Belgian Catholicism. Although women were called the'pious sex' much earlier, it was during the nineteenth century, when the differences between men and women were being made more explicit, that an intense bond between women and religion was developed. Religiosity was thought to be a'natural' part of femininity and turned religious masculinity into an oddity. This clear-cut gender ideology, however, remains an ideology (prescribed and contested) that needs to be put in the perspective of its context of origin, the bourgeois milieu. How were these gender identities constructed and by whom? With this volume Van Osselaer seeks to clarify how the gender differentiation was created among Belgian Catholics. She brings to light the extent to which religiosity was inscribed in these constructions and how religious teachings contributed to it. It is clear that the limitations of the'feminization' thesis, a master narrative that has strongly contributed to the introduction of women in religious history, have gradually become more visible. Documenting pastoral care, the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Catholic Action, The Pious Sex offers critical commentaries on the master narratives, suggesting that even men could belong to a'pious sex'.

World Views and Worldly Wisdom· Visions et expériences du monde (eBook) World Views and Worldly Wisdom· Visions et expériences du monde,  

The attraction and repulsion between the Roman Catholic Church and modernity in Europe between 1750 and 2000. Emiel Lamberts (1941), professor emeritus of contemporary history at KU Leuven, is an international expert in the political and religious history of Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries. His work and the central themes in his research are the starting point in World Views and Worldly Wisdom. No less than eighteen leading international researchers put different aspects of his work in the spotlight. A recurring theme, however, is the attraction and repulsion between the Roman Catholic Church and modernity in Europe between 1750 and 2000. The ambivalent relationship with modernity is therefore the leitmotiv of the first part of this volume, whereas the second part focuses on the repositioning of the Church and the tensions between religion, ideology and politics. In this way the volume reflects Lamberts's fascination for the history of political institutions as well as his research on Christian democracy. The contributions address - in a comparative way and from a transatlantic viewpoint - this broad period of time in history, which gave rise to different social movements and different models of society in Belgium and elsewhere.
