Synopsis: Wrath and mercy of the gods were some of the significant religious features in antiquity. They interpret human experiences of suffering and affliction as well as those of protection and welfare. Due to the different characters and responsibilities of the deities, a remarkable range of constellations of divine benevolence and malevolence becomes evident, sometimes without allowing insight into the motives of the decisions made. This is why the actions of the gods are often viewed as emotional and arbitrary, lacking any degree of transparency. Consequently, the gods are subjected to philosophical and theological criticism. They are regarded by some as unreliable and obscure in any case, while others launch an attack on them, questioning their existence. The relationship between divine wrath and mercy requires a great deal of perception in the monotheistic religions, as it is no longer possible to attribute wrath and mercy to different deities. Wrath and mercy become characteristic features of one god only. In all monotheistic religions, it is a matter of theological concern to question the relationship between wrath and mercy on the basis of authoritative texts and religious experience. The comparison of these approaches provides valuable information on the very essence of the religions investigated from this central perspective.

Book Description Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2008. Gr.-8°, Brosch. VIII, 279 S. Neubuch / New Copy // Zorn und Barmherzigkeit gehören zu den charakteristischen Zügen vieler Gottheiten in der Welt der Antike. Sie sind ein Erklärungsversuch für Erfahrungen sowohl des Leidens und der Anfechtung als auch des Wohlergehens und der Behütung. Polytheistische Konzeptionen eröffnen eine große Vielfalt der Verhältnisbestimmung, während monotheistische Konzeptionen darauf bedacht sein müssen, das Verhältnis von Zorn und Barmherzigkeit in ein Verhältnis zu bringen, das mit dem dominierenden Gottesbild in Einklang steht. Nicht selten ist es gerade das Verhältnis von Zorn und Barmherzigkeit, das für das autoritative Gottesbild zentrale Bedeutung hat. Die vorliegenden Studien, die den komparatistischen Zugang zu den Religionen aus Orient und Antike unter dem Aspekt göttlichen Zorns und göttlicher Barmherzigkeit ermöglichen, liefern damit zugleich wichtige Einsichten in das Selbstbild der untersuchten Religionen.
