    Face to face with the absent Buddha: The formation of Buddhist Aniconic art1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    Early art in Buddhist cultic sites was characterized by the absence of anthropomorphicimages of the Buddha. The Buddha was instead represented by different signs, like awheel, a tree, a seat and footprints. This study emphasizes the transformation this artunderwent from simple signs to carefully made aniconic compositions representing theBuddha in a narrative context.

    Buddhist aniconic art has been explained by a prohibition against images of theBuddha or by a doctrine that made it inappropriate to depict the body of the Buddha.This study rejects such explanations. Likewise, the practice of different meditationalexercises cannot explain this transformation. Instead, it is important to understand thatearly art at Buddhist cultic sites consisted of simple signs belonging to a shared sacredIndian culture. This art reflected a notion of auspiciousness, fertility and abundance.The formation of Buddhist aniconic art was indicated by the connection of these auspi- cious signs with a narrative tradition about the life and teachings of the Buddha.

    The study emphasizes the importance Sakyamuni Buddha played in the formation ofBuddhist art. The Buddha was interpreted as an expression of auspiciousness, but hewas also connected with a soteriological perspective. Attention is also focused on thefact that the development of Buddhist art and literature was a gradual and mutualprocess. Furthermore, Buddhist aniconic art presaged the making of anthropomorphicimages of the Buddha. It was not an innovation of motive for the Buddhists when theystarted to make anthropomorphic images of the Buddha. He was already there.

    The Formation of Early Buddhist Visual Culture2006In: Material religion, ISSN 1743-2200 , Vol. 2, no 1, p. 68-95 Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the cultural context of Buddhist images. In the early stages of Buddhism, there is an absence of anthromoprhic images of the Buddha because visual symbols belonged to a shared sacred Indian culture. Auspicious symbols, mythological creatures and local deities are used by Buddhists to protect themselves and popularize their religion.

    ”Det är inte möjligt för er att ge era hustrur lika behandling i allt”: En analys av muslimska feministiska författares syn på polygami2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The discussion of Islam and their view of the Koran is constantly ”under fire” where everyone has an opinion, even the non-muslims. In this paper, the goal was to find out how the believers themselves interpret and see the Koran. The focus of this study is mainly on two suras in Koran, sura 4 verse 3 and sura 4 verse 129. The purpose of the study is to analyze the Muslim feminist authors’ views on polygamy and their focus on the two suras. The material is from four different feminist authors that writes about polygamy, their view and opinion on polygamous marriages and about the polygamous message in the Koran. The study demonstrates that the feminist authors argue from similar basis when discussing polygamy. The two most common arguments that the authors use is argument of fairness, where there is no logic to why, the otherwise so fair God, isn’t it then it comes to the terms of polygamy. Another argument that the authors bring up is the evolutionary argument, which the authors believe that the interpreters of the Koran in the present should take into account the historical development when they interpret the suras. The four different authors bring up similar arguments but different views on how polygamy in Islam and in the Koran should and can be interpreted.

    Vad jorden gömmer vi ej glömmer: En studie om symbolanvändningen på gravstenar i Tibro kommun 1916-20162016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka symbolanvändningen, texten på och utformningen av gravstenar i Tibro kommun under perioden 1916–2016.

    Jag har valt att utgå från Steve Bruce beskrivning av sekulariseringsteorin för att se hur de passar in på utvecklingen av symbolanvändning och textanvändning på de gravstenar i Tibro kommun under 1916–2016, som mitt material till största del består av.

    Jag har i den är uppsatsen gjort en huvudsakligen kvantitativ undersökning med en kvalitativ del. Jag har samlat in materialet, bestående av 2 781 gravstenar, under tre dagars tid på Tibro kommuns fyra kyrkogårdar: Ransbergs gamla kyrkogård och Ransbergs nya kyrkogård som ligger utanför Tibro centralort, och Kyrkefalla kyrkogård och Tibro nya kyrkogård som ligger i Tibro centralort. Dokumentationen har skett genom fotografering och jag har fotograferat alla gravstenar på de fyra kyrkogårdarna där den tidigast avlidna som finns skriven på stenen är död från och med år 1916 till och med de första fyra månaderna år 2016.  Jag har även gjort en kvalitativ del, en intervju och ett telefonsamtal med begravningsentreprenörer i  Tibro kommun.

    Resultatet visar att bruket av religiösa symboler såsom korset minskar medan sekulariserade och individualiserade symboler ökar.
