I: CIVIL SOCIETY: A THEORETICAL SEDUCTION? and SECULARISATION AND EUROPEAN IDENTITY

Description

Two essays originally presented to the 2004 Scribani Network Conference on Europe.

In the first, Dr Patrick Riordan SJ offers an analysis of the terms under which religion, largely confined to the private realm by secularist thought, is acknowledged as an important part of civil society. 

In the second, Dr Anthony Carroll explores the prevailing models of secularization, taking up Habermas's suggestive description of contemporary Europe as 'post-secular'.

VI. LOST IN TRANSLATION: FAITH-BASED CHARITIES AND 'PUBLIC BENEFIT' IN THE EYES OF THE STATE

VI. LOST IN TRANSLATION: FAITH-BASED CHARITIES AND 'PUBLIC BENEFIT' IN THE EYES OF THE STATE

Description

Why are faith-based charities different? And why does it matter? These questions are at the heart of Words in Action, a project from the Heythrop Institute for Religion, Ethics & Public Life. 

Volumes 6 and 7 in The Institute Series start looking for answers.

The 2006 Charities Act means the Charity Commission must review the 'public benefit' each charity provides. New research by Angela Cheyne, specially commissioned for this project, looks at how faith-based charities describe this, and how the state understands it. And a paper by Patrick Riordan proposes debates which might usefully take place within and between faith-based charities and the secular environment. 

The Authors: 

Angela Cheyne is an independent researcher with a background in Parliamentary affairs 

Dr Patrick Rordan SJ is an Associate Director of the Heythrop Institute

VII. CHARITY WHICH MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

VII. CHARITY WHICH MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

Description

Why are faith-based charities different? And why does it matter? These questions are at the heart of Words in Action, a project from the Heythrop Institute for Religion, Ethics & Public Life. 

Volumes 6 and 7 in The Institute Series start looking for answers.

Does Christian charitable activity only generate ‘social capital’, or does it point to an alternative social and political domain, beyond the limitations of party concerns or sectional interests? James Hanvey draws on Catholic theological insights to argue that the work of charity opens new opportunities to realise what is human and creates a new quality of public space. 

Modern France builds laïcité into its constitution and cultural life. Considering the place of Christian charitable activity in French society, Pierre Martinot Lagarde traces its shift from meeting objective need to ‘recognition’ and accompaniment of those at the margins, and probes what that might mean, both for Christians and for society. 

The Authors: 

Dr James Hanvey SJ is a former Director of the Heythrop Institute for Religion, Ethics & Public Life 

Dr Pierre Martinot Lagarde SJ is Director of CERAS (Centre de recherche et d’action sociales), La Plaine Saint Denis, France
