Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Theologie - Religion als Schulfach, Note: 1.0, - (Studienseminar fur Sonderpadagogik Dusseldorf), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Einleitung Da horte ich eine laute Stimme vom Thron her rufen: Seht die Wohnung Gottes unter den Menschen! Offb 21,3 1.1 Im Anfang war ein Wort ... Da wohnt der Gott." Mit diesen Worten kommentierte ein Schuler den Besuch der Kirche St. Maria in den Benden in Dusseldorf-Wersten. Er probte dort mit seiner Klasse, einer Mittelstufe der Schule fur Geistigbehinderte, ein Krippenspiel fur den Schulgottesdienst. Seine Worte spiegeln nicht nur seine religiose Sozialisation - er war in diesem Jahr Kommunionkind -, sondern geben auch etwas von der Ahnung wieder, die er von der Bedeutung dieses Raumes hatte. Er stellt sich damit unbewusst in die Tradition eines Gedankens, der sich durch die Geschichte der menschlichen Religiositat zieht: den Gedanken raumlicher Gottesnahe. Antike Kultstatten befanden sich bevorzugt an exponierten Naturschauplatzen wie einem Berg oder einer Quelle. Es handelte sich um Orte, an denen sich wie im ersten Fall Himmel und Erde beruhren oder wie im zweiten Fall das Wirken gottlicher Krafte sichtbar wurde. Diese Statten wurden baulich markiert und zu Heiligen Bezirken ausgestaltet, an denen die Erscheinung Gottes festgehalten werden sollte. Ein Bauwerk wird so zum Zeichen der Gegenwart Gottes (vgl. RICHTER 22001c). Auch die Bibel kennt das Motiv des raumlichen Wohnens Gottes. Beispielhaft seien hier die Bundeslade Israels oder der Tempelbau des Konigs Salomo genannt. Als glaubiger Jude besuchte auch Jesus den Tempel, hebt aber dessen Bedeutung auf, indem er auf sich selbst als Tempel, als Wohnstatte Gottes hinweist (Jo 2,19f.). Die Gemeinde bzw. die Kirche, die nach seinem Tod sein Gedachtnis bewahrt, wird ebenso wie er mit Gottes Tempel" identifiziert (1 Kor 3,16). Wie aber verlauft die Verbindungslinie von der Hausgemeinschaft der Urgemeinde zu dem 1959 eingeweihten modernen

This original study discusses the role of women in developing and dispersing caring power and, vice-versa, the role of caring power in constituting 'women' as modern social subjects, processes which began around 1800. Based on the historian-/philosopher Foucault's concept of pastoral power, "caring power" also takes into account the vital role played by gender. Both humanitarian and religious motives fostered the ideal of serving the well-being of individual 'others' and thereby the interest of society as a whole. With the rise of caring power, this book argues, women began to feel responsible for 'those of their own sex' and to organize themselves in all-female organizations. In the process they carved out new gender identities for themselves and the women in their care. The authors illustrate this profound historical change with the work of the reformers Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845) and Josephine Butler (1828-1906) and trace their impact in Britain and the Netherlands.

In the nineteenth century, more than a third of American hospitals were established and run by women with religious vocations. In Say Little, Do Much, Sioban Nelson casts light on the work of these women's religious communities. According to Nelson, the popular view that nursing invented itself in the second half of the nineteenth century is historically inaccurate and dismissive of the major advances in the care of the sick as a serious and skilled activity, an activity that originated in seventeenth-century France with Vincent de Paul's Daughters of Charity. In this comparative, contextual, and critical work, Nelson demonstrates how modern nursing developed from the complex interplay of the Catholic emancipation in Britain and Ireland, the resurgence of the Irish Church, the Irish diaspora, and the mass migrations of the German, Italian, and Polish Catholic communities to the previously Protestant strongholds of North America and mainland Britain. In particular, Nelson follows the nursing Daughters of Charity through the French Revolution and the Second Empire, documenting the relationship that developed between the French nursing orders and the Irish Catholic Church during this period. This relationship, she argues, was to have major significance for the development of nursing in the English-speaking world.

Like medical knowledge and practice itself, most medical histories are fascinated with the bodies of patients. Bashford examines practitioners of medicine, as well as patients, as embodied and sexed subjects. She brings together recent cultural and feminist theories on the body, nineteenth-century medical history and the history of gender and Victorian feminism. Purity and Pollution is a cultural history which investigates the ways in which many different practitioners - male and female doctors, nurses, midwives, accoucheurs - were implicated in a discourse and a material practice inescapably about the pure and the polluted.
