Abstract

APOSTOLIDES, Anastasia  and  MEYLAHN, Johann-Albrecht. The lived theology of the Harry Potter series. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.1, pp.01-06. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V70I1.2713.

This article will argue that the recent turn towards lived theology or religion in practical theology can offer a useful hermeneutic to interpret the impact of the Harry Potter series on the spiritual formation and identity creation of adolescents. In practical theology there has been a turn towards lived theology or religion as lived religion has moved out of institutions into social-cultural phenomena as people seek to find meaning and purpose for their lives in alternative places to institutionalised religion.
