29.10., Arte, 20.15 Uhr: "Der Luther-Code" Mit 95 Thesen hat Martin Luther vor 500 Jahren eine Erneuerung des Glaubens und eine Revolution des Wissens ausgelöst und das Tor zur Zukunft weit aufgestoßen. Unser heutiges Bild der Welt gründet ganz wesentlich auf den Folgen der Reformation und den Errungenschaften der Renaissance im 16. Jahrhundert. Die Moderne ist entstanden, weil der Mensch sich damals plötzlich gefragt hat: "Wer bin ich eigentlich, was ist meine Rolle in der Welt? Was kann ich tun und an was soll ich glauben?" Heute stehen wir erneut inmitten einer Zeitenwende von epochalem Ausmaß: Die Globalisierung und die digitale Revolution arbeiten sich in kaum vorstellbarer Geschwindigkeit an fast allem bis dahin Gültigen ab; und wi...

Our current picture of the world is based essentially on the consequences of the reformation and the achievements of the Renaissance in the 16th century. Modernity has arisen because man is then suddenly asked: "who am I really, what is my role in the world? What can I do and what should I believe?" Today, we are once again in the midst of a new era of epochal proportions: globalization and the digital revolution is hardly imaginable speed almost everything until there valid work in off; and wi...

Anzeige Im Sommer 1522 schien es eine sehr gute Idee zu sein, eine deutsche Bibel auf den Markt zu bringen. Deutschland war in Unruhe. Die Weltsicht der alten kirchlichen Autoritäten wurde angezweifelt. Also wollten die Menschen selber verstehen, was in dem Buch stand, auf dem das ganze Christentum gründete. Obendrein hatte sich der Buchdruck rund 70 Jahre nach seiner Erfindung durch Gutenberg und sein Team erheblich verbilligt. Doch leider war die Bibel, die im Juli des genannten Jahres in Halberstadt herauskam, nicht von Martin Luther. Und zu diesem Zeitpunkt wollte ganz Deutschland eine Übersetzung der Heiligen Schrift nur noch von einem lesen: von dem Mann, der durch seine 95 Thesen und Schriften wie „Von der Freiheit eines Christenm...

It's tempting, Ivan Illich admits (Gender), to think that “gender” is tribal and primitive, and that “social sex” inevitably arises in advanced, complex social and economic settings. He offers the gendered world of the Middle Ages as a counter-example.Tenants and freeholders paid rent to the lord, and these payments were done in “a gender-specific way”: “A large number of contracts carefully determined not only the amount of rent due for the land but also the gender from whom it was due. For instance, Ingmar paid the abbey fifteen days’ labor, presenting himself each day with two draught animals, and also owed one sheep every second year; his wife – and in the case of her death, a maid – delivered five chickens each fall.”In these contra...
