Man måste inte tro nånting – men man måste samtala: Ärkebiskop KG Hammars syn på kommunikation och språk
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
Archbishop KG Hammar has attracted attention for his liberal position in theology. His view on the role of language and communication is central in several books and articles he has published as leader of the Church of Sweden. One of his main theses is the fact that meaning is created in the encounter between text and reader. He often reiterates: God is relation. This non-traditional dynamic stance has a broad impact not only on theology. It also affects the view of church formation and leadership as well as bible interpretation and the concept of sacramentality. The paper traces the pervasive consequence in this thinking.
