Damnation

(1,397 words)

Author(s): Hock, Klaus | Sarot, Marcel | Rosenau, Hartmut
[German Version] I. History of Religions – II. Philosophy of Religion – III. Dogmatics I. History of Religions As a theological category, damnation belongs primarily in the context of the history of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The etymology of the term itself connotes a local and a judicial dimension: the punishment of expulsion to a real or imaginary place as an exclusion from salvation, either limited or unlimited in time. There are several areas of tension in all three traditions: with respect to the core of the matter, whether damnation is an “automatic” consequence of human misbehavior, the result of Divine Judgment, or the fate of a person through predestination; concerning the local and temporal characterization, whether it is an eternal sojourn in hell, a limited purgatory, or (in Islam) temporary torment in the grave; with regard to those effected, whether there will be damnation in this life or beyond, individually or collectively; and, with reference to the status of those in damnation, whether their form of existence is conceived as spiritual or physical. All kinds of combinations of these parameters are conceivable, for example, eternal condemnation for unbelievers, but temporal condemnation for believing sinners (Sin, guilt, and forgiveness), as in some Isl…

Sensation

(284 words)

Author(s): Sarot, Marcel
[German Version] General. Over the centuries, the term sensation (Ger. Empfindung, Lat. passio corporalis, sensatio) has taken on many different meanings.
