    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the political-theological question between Athens, Greece and Jerusalem. It cites the key structural contradicitions between the two regions, including polytheism and monotheism, autonomy and heteronomy, freedom and obedience, among others. It mentions the debates about the place of faith and reason in politics, education and bio-ethics which continues in the 21st century. It notes the questions raised by Leo Strauss relating to the synthesis of the Hebrew thought rendered into Greek grammar and became the basis of the Latin Church. Also noted is the attempt of the articles in the issue to create a dialogue between political theological analysis and political theory by examining the work of Karl Marx, among others through the lens of Athens and Jerusalem.
