The Book Song of Songs as an Answer to Qohelet's Vanity
This thesis is concerned with, in the words of Song of Songs, finding an appropriate answer to Qohelet's vanity - vanity of a human life and things that inherently come with it, as Qohelet himself proclaims in his book. The first chapter introduces the Book of Qohelet and aims to capture the main themes of vanity and transience, while also providing the ways out from this situation, as presented by Qohelet. The second chapter introduces the reader to the Song of Songs book while also describing its content which concerns the interpretation of love between a man and a woman. The third chapter brings forward efforts of the author and the main themes and conclusions of the book are analysed. This allows - in the conclusion of this thesis - to answer the question of whether the love in the Songs of Songs is a possible answer to Qoheleth's vanity - the transience of a human life, as brought out by Qohelet in his work.
Trinitological Readining of 8th Sermon on Song of Songs by Bernard of Clairvaux
Macek, Karel ; Ventura, Václav (advisor) ; Pospíšil, Ctirad Václav (referee)
The Sermons on Song of Songs by Bernard of Clairvaux belong in the tradition of interpretation of the Song of Songs to the most renowned. The eighth sermon differs since the author applies the analogical exegesis not to the relationship between God and soul or church, but to relationship between divine persons Father and Son, where the relationship, denoted by the metaphor of kiss, is identified with the Holy Spirit. This bachelor thesis aims to examine the eigth sermon thoroughly. At first, the broader context is provided, namely facts related to the biblical text, Bernard's life, as well as terms and structures of dogmatic theology, especially trinitology. Consequently, this context is used for the reading itself and subsequent analysis of the examined text. The thesis offers two main results: on the one hand, it points out the double aplication of analogia entis, while on the other hand, it points out the relationship between the examined text and the trinitology of Richard of Saint Victor.
