An interesting venue for an interview with Dr. John Milbank, who is known for his work in “Radical Orthodoxy“, is interviewed while on a trip to Russia. The conversation has quite a bit of historic characters and events shared, so prepare your wikipedia tab. Quite a bit of conversation on the West and Eastern Orthodoxy of the faith.
In this interview with Fr Antoniy Borisov, Professor Milbank, Director of the Centre for Theology and Politics at Nottingham University, discusses religion in modern and ancient everyday life, the place of romanticism in theology, and “Radical Orthodoxy“.
Stanley Hauerwas always has something fun to say. He is like a hot spice to the academic theologian world. A talk on politics reflecting on the actions of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his actions to subvert the Nazi empire. Who can resist!
Dietrich Bonhoeffer is well known for his heroic opposition to the Nazis. Martin Hauerwas examines Bonhoeffer’s understanding of lying and why it’s appropriate to hold politics to a higher standard of truthful speech. This relationship between truth and politics is a particular challenge for democratic regimes. Series: Burke Lectureship on Religion & Society [4/2004] [Humanities] [Show ID: 8498]
