Thomist

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Thomist

From the journal website:

The THOMIST appeals to a wide international readership in the university, the seminary, and the Church. In the tradition and spirit of Thomas Aquinas, it seeks to promote original and penetrating inquiry into the full range of contemporary philosophical and theological questions. It undertakes particularly to support sustained discussion of issues of philosophy and systematic theology, where such discussion can be advanced by creative use of the thought of Aquinas and significant authors in the Thomistic tradition. In this way The Thomist seeks to cultivate a fruitful dialogue between modern and contemporary philosophical systems and the classical tradition of philosophy and Christian theology.

“The Thomist (ISSN 0040-5325) is published by Dominican Fathers Province of St. Joseph.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 29 (1965) to present.

Four of my father’s wives lived at Provo during my childhood, a situation particularly fortunate for the swarm of Taylor kids. Santa Claus came twice to us, instead of just the single time he visited homes of those unfortunates whose fathers had only one wife.  We were taught how blessed we were, to be among the very last to be privileged to live the fullness of the gospel; and here was a tangible evidence.

Philosophy and Theology

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Philosophy and Theology

karl_rahner_by_letizia_mancino_cremerFrom the Philosophy Document Centre website for the journal:

Philosophy & Theology is a peer-reviewed journal that addresses all areas of interest to these two ancient disciplines and explores the common ground that joins them. While not a journal of the philosophy of religion, one issue each year includes articles devoted to the thought and legacy of the theologian Karl Rahner. Rahner’s appropriation of diverse theological and philosophical sources provided an innovative conceptual framework that established his reputation as one of the most influential systematic theologians of the Vatican II era.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1986) to present.

Digital Karl Barth Library

Cambridge University Library, the Divinity Faculty Library, and ebooks@cambridge have collaborated to make accessible the Digital Karl Barth Library here:

http://ezproxy.lib.cam.ac.uk:2048/login?url=http://bart.alexanderstreet.com

The Library features the entire corpus of Barth’s Gesamtausgabe. Published under the TVZ imprint, this definitive edition of Barth’s works in German currently comprises more than 40 volumes of sermons, letters, lectures, conversations, and academic writings. Also slated for inclusion in The Digital Karl Barth Library is Barth’s magnum opus, the 14-volume Kirchliche Dogmatik.

Every document in The Digital Karl Barth Library is hand-keyed and features metadata tagging specifically designed to meet the research needs of religious-studies scholars. The same dedication to scholarly research has guided the development of the search and presentation platform, which enables users to perform highly sophisticated searches and to view, organize, and analyze results with extraordinary speed and precision. For example, researchers can return comprehensive, accurate results in seconds for the following kinds of queries:

  • Find all references to Hitler in Barth’s letters;
  • In Barth’s academic writings, identify words that occur most frequently in close proximity with the keyword λογος;
  • Locate instances where Barth discusses tribulation and suffering in his sermons;
  • Searching all Barth’s works, find all citations of Romans, chapter one.
