 Michael-weighing-souls-56a0009b5f9b58eba4ae6735‘Apocalyptic Theology and the Concept of Justice’

A Call for Papers

Continuing our explorations in theology and apocalyptic, we invite proposals for short papers (20-25 minutes in length) investigating the question of the concept of justice within an apocalyptic Christian theology. What is the relation of justice and apocalypse? What role is or ought to be played by the notion of justice in an apocalyptic account of salvation? How is justice treated in historic examples of apocalyptic theology, and with what significance? Is the ‘God apocalypse in Jesus Christ’ a God of justice and if so in just what sense? What approach might an apocalyptic theology take to the question of justice as category of public, legal, political discourse? What would be involved in recasting widely deployed concepts of justice in a contemporary ‘apocalyptic key’? Papers working theologically with biblical texts and resources are particularly invited.

Proposals should be no more than 300 words in length, and must be accompanied by a brief single-page CV.

Proposals should be sent to Philip Ziegler: p.ziegler@abdn.ac.uk

All proposals must be received by April 30th, 2020.
