Mozart: Traces of Transcendence

Capa
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1993 - 81 páginas
Much Has Been Written about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, but relatively little on the religious dimension of his person and his music. In this book Hans Kung offers an intriguing theological probing into Mozart's musical work. Kung begins by discussing Mozart's Catholic background--something that, surprisingly, has hardly been treated by Mozart scholars. He moves on to explore how Mozart's music itself displays to the keen ear "traces of transcendence," giving intimations of a mysterious bliss transcending even all music.

Acerca do autor (1993)

Hans Kung is Swiss and was born into a middle-class family. He studied in Rome for seven years, obtaining his licentiate in philosophy and theology from the Gregorian University there, and then receiving his doctorate in theology from the Catholic Institute in Paris. Since 1960 he has been a professor at Tubingen University, where he taught dogmatic and ecumenical theology until his permission to teach Catholic theology was removed as a consequence of statements judged to be contrary to official doctrine. Since 1980 he has taught at the University of Chicago and the University of Michigan, and occasionally in Europe as well. His difficulties with the church began with the publication The Church (1967) and became very hot with the publication of Infallible? An Inquiry (1971). More recently, his On Being Christian (1977) has raised the question of whether his theology is not simply rational Protestant theology of the turn of the century. Official inquiries were held, statements were exchanged between Kung and the Conference of German Bishops, and the Rome-based Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, but no agreement was to be had. Kung continues to declare himself a loyal member of the Roman Catholic church and seems unlikely to leave its priesthood or to be excommunicated.
