This volume is the 2018 edition of Obsculta, and it reflects and celebrates the diverse and unique culture within our community. The Saint John’s University School of Theology and Seminary is deeply rooted in the expansive Christian tradition and dedicated to equipping women and men with the necessary skills and competencies to serve our world.
Contributions to this year’s edition of Obsculta represent what it truly means to, “listen” by beginning dialogues that transcend across faith barriers. Buddhist, Protestant, and Catholic schools of thought are found within this journal; each demonstrating that after one truly listens to the ear of one’s heart, as Benedict instructs, beautiful and stimulating ideas, concepts, and lessons begin to take shape.
Our piece from the archives recalls the sometimes-turbulent atmosphere of the Protestant Reformation with a comparison between Müntzer’s and Luther’s theologies regarding the injustices within the context of the Peasants War of 1525.
