The authors of the articles in this volume explore the biblical and philosophical roots of the concept of freedom, trace their historical development and describe the current debates over freedom in theology and philosophy.
The concept of freedom shaped the history of Christianity from the very beginning; at the same time it is one of the central concepts of the modern Western world. It is the debate over freedom on which the often tense relationship between Christianity and the modern age is focused. The authors of the articles in this volume explore the biblical and philosophical roots of the concept of freedom, trace their historical development and describe the current debates over freedom in theology and philosophy. In their common focus on the subject of freedom, they open up promising perspectives and at the same time raise our awareness of ambivalences, challenges and the potential of the concept of freedom.
