Constructing a Žižekian Political Theology of Forgiveness

image of International Journal of Public Theology

Political theology finds itself at an impasse between those which trumpet traditional views of divine surplus and transcendence, and atheologies which deconstruct faith and the divine to a barely coherent (let alone recognizable) point. This article aims to map out the contours of a reworked political theology, one with forgiveness and divine suffering at its centre (juxtaposing the transcendent in the immanent) yet one which is neither held confined by the need for dogmatic assent nor rendered unintelligible by a rejection of the conceptual.
