The Protestant Principle: A Study on Paul Tillich
Dissertation, Drew University (1998)
AbstractThis is research for the Protestant principle of Paul Tillich. In this research study, the writer deals with four principal points: How this Protestant principle developed in Tillich; how Tillich made application of this principle within his historical sphere and religious socialism; How this principle was applied to his Systematic Theology; and How this principle applied to the encounter with world religions and quasi-religious spheres in his later period. ;In the first chapter, the writer deals with how the Protestant principle was formulated dialectically through his understanding between religion and culture. The second chapter deals with Tillich's application or this principle to religious socialism including Tillich's criticism of the Church and of bourgeois ideology. The third chapter deals with Tillich's application of this principle to Systematic Theology, since this principle needs realization in history and the religious sphere. In this chapter, the writer also will research how Tillich solves the tension between "the universal principle" and "concrete embodiment." The New Being as a unity between God and human being in Jesus as the Christ gives the solution of this tension. The fourth chapter deals with how this principle can be the principle for inter-religious dialogue including quasi-religions
