Several Systematic-Theological Ideas on the Spiritual Dimension of Work of (not only) a Historian
Languages of publication
The aim of this paper is to highlight a common denominator in the work of a historian, theologian and scholars in each of the humanities. The author first clarifies his concept of the spiritual dimension, pointing out that the rectification of one’s relationship to the past as a prerequisite of the undistorted present and the future and that this remedy is, from the spiritual point of view, a sort of conversion. Another problem involves how to present the ideal in the post-ideological time. An awareness of the multi-dimensionality of reality leads us to humility in making judgements while protecting us from their absolutisation. The common denominator of the spiritual dimension of the efforts of a humanities scholar is undoubtedly an openness to transcendence, which in the work of a historian, takes a specific form, and does not have to be influenced by an explicit Christian faith.
