Re-Envisioning Christian Humanism : Education and the Restoration of Humanity, Hardback Book

Re-Envisioning Christian Humanism : Education and the Restoration of Humanity Hardback

Edited by Jens Zimmermann


Since the early 1980s, there has been renewed scholarly interest in the concept of Christian Humanism.

A number of official Catholic documents have stressed the importance of 'Christian humanism', as a vehicle of Christian social teaching and, indeed, as a Christian philosophy of culture.

Fundamentally, humanism aims to explore what it means to be human and what the grounds are for human flourishing.

Featuring contributions from internationally renowned Christianauthors from a variety of disciplines in the humanities, Re-Envisioning Christian Humanism recovers a Christian humanist ethos for our time.

The volume offers a chronological overview (from patristic humanism to the Reformation and beyond) and individual examples (Jewell, Calvin) of past Christianhumanisms.

The chapters are connected through the theme of Christian paideia as the foundation for liberal arts education.
