M18-113 Grundtvig Study Center, Aarhus University, Denmark, Church of Sweden Research Department, and Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht Theme: Passionately Human! The Future of Scandinavian Creation Theology  Saturday, 10:00 AM–12:00 PM Sheraton Boston-Beacon E (Third Level) Jakob Wirén, Church of Sweden, Presiding The three founding figures of Scandinavian creation theology (SCT) —K.E. Løgstrup, Regin Prenter, and Gustaf Wingren—combined seminal insights from Martin Luther, mediated through the Danish theologian N.F.S. Grundtvig. The world outside the churches is not God-less. The world is God-given and imbued with a divine presence; therefore it is religiously valid to approach the world from a secular perspective, and from embodied experiences. Thus, SCT offers a model for reconfiguring reformation theology for a post-secular age, holding the view that the doctrine of creation is not just another theological locus to be followed by other loci, such as justification and fulfillment. Rather, creation constitutes the universal horizon for any Christian theologizing, also regarding Christ and church, baptism and salvation.
