Theology as Performance

Philip Stoltzfus

Theology as Performance breaks new ground in the growing conversation between modern theology and philosophical aesthetics. Stoltzfus proposes that significant moments in the Western development of the concept of God, in particular as represented in the figures of Friedrich Schleiermacher, Karl Barth, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, have been deeply influenced by concepts and approaches borrowed from the discipline of musical aesthetics. Each thinker develops fundamentally different ways of writing about God that have in significant respects been derived from each ones reading and writing about music. The aesthetic implications of Schleiermachers so-called subjectivist turn, Barths objectivist reaction, and Wittgensteins language-game pragmatism can thus be fully understood only by attending to the musical culture and distinctly musicological discourses that gave rise to them. Stoltzfus constructs two trajectories of thought with which to trace theological reflection upon music throughout the pre-modern period: the traditions of Orpheus and Pythagoras. Schleiermachers aesthetic approach, then, becomes a modern representative of the Orpheus trajectory, and Barths approach a representative of the Pythagoras trajectory. Stoltzfus interprets Wittgenstein as putting forward a radical critique of these trajectories and pointing toward a third, performative theological-aesthetic method. Theology as Performance offers a provocative rethinking of the aesthetic roots of modern theology.
