The key death-of-God theologian explores the that means and goal of radical theology.
In the decision to Radical Theology, Thomas J. J. Altizer meditates at the nature of radical theology and calls readers to adopt the vocation of radical theology as a fashion of residing a completely tested existence. In fourteen essays, he explores how the loss of life of God in modernity and the dissolution of divine authority have freed theology to develop into a style of final mirrored image and inventive inquiry now not sure by means of church sanction or doctrinal strictures.
Revealing a wealth of important types for doing radical theological considering, Altizer discusses the paintings of philosophers equivalent to Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Marion, Derrida, and Levinas, between others. assets also are present in the paintings of imaginitive writers, particularly Milton, Blake, and Joyce. within the spirit of Joyce’s the following Comes every person, Altizer is confident that theology is for everybody and that everybody has the authority to do theology authentically.

212 ff. D AV I D Q U I N T Epic Tradition and Inferno IX W hen Dante’s itinerary stalls before the gates of Dis, he and Virgil stand at a crossroads where two epic traditions of underworld descent diverge in opposite directions. The Furies misapply the typology of Theseus to the pilgrim; but Dante has not come to deprive the infernal kingdom of one of its denizens, nor will he, as the guardians of Dis demand, retrace his steps back to earth by the way he came. Passing through and beyond the underworld, Dante’s journey rather imitates the descent of Aeneas.
Pﬂaum shows a clear understanding of the situation in his Die religiose Disputation in der europäischen Dichtung des Mittelalters (GenevaFlorence, 1935). Recently (in Romania, LXIII) his sound understanding of the word ﬁgura enabled him to give a correct interpretation of some Old French verses that had been misunderstood by the editor and to restore the text.
