La Ley de Dios: Historia filosófica de una alianza (Ensayos by Rémi Brague,José Antonio Millán Alba

By Rémi Brague,José Antonio Millán Alba

Hoy los angeles inspiration de ley divina se ha vuelto extraña e incluso, para algunos, ofensiva. Sin embargo, ha dominado las creencias y las costumbres durante casi tres milenios. los angeles alianza entre Dios y l. a. ley, forjada en los angeles Grecia antigua y en l. a. tradición bíblica, ha asumido formas diferentes en el judaísmo, el cristianismo y el islam. Rémi Brague describe en l. a. ley de Dios< l. a. larga génesis de esta alianza, su desarrollo en cada una de las tres religiones medievales, y finalmente de su disolución con l. a. modernidad europea, a través de los angeles relectura de los textos fuentes de l. a. filosofía y el pensamiento religioso.En el judaísmo de l. a. diáspora, l. a. Ley se erigía como l. a. única presencia de Dios en medio de un pueblo que había perdido su reino y su Templo: coincidía con Dios. Es con el cristianismo cuando nace y se desarrolla su separación. El Dios cristiano ya no es solamente el legislador del tiempo de los judíos, es los angeles fuente de los angeles conciencia humana y comunica l. a. gracia que permite obedecer a los angeles ley. Esta separación dará posteriormente forma a las instituciones políticas de los angeles cristiandad medieval, tanto al Imperio como a l. a. Iglesia. Por el contrario, el islam se convertirá cada vez más en una religión centrada completamente sobre l. a. Ley, que preside el conjunto de las prácticas de los hombres a partir de los angeles caída del califato. A diferencia de las dos religiones bíblicas, aquí es Dios quien debe dictar directamente l. a. Ley. Con los angeles modernidad, l. a. alianza entre Dios y l. a. ley será denunciada y después expulsada de los angeles ciudad: nuestro Dios ya no es legislador, nuestra ley ya no es divina. Pero ¿cómo es un mundo, como el nuestro, en el que el hombre se concibe como único soberano? ¿Cómo una ley sin huella de lo divino puede ofrecer razones para vivir?
