DE VILLIERS, P.G.R.. Towards a Spirituality of Peace. Acta theol. [online]. 2008, vol.28, suppl.11, pp.20-58. ISSN 2309-9089.

This article contributes towards designing a Spirituality of Peace within Spirituality as a discipline. It first analyses the increasing attention to violence and peace generally and within religious contexts specifically. It then critically evaluates some approaches that view violence and peace as moral issues and shows how these approaches inherently move towards a spiritual approach to peace. The article finally discusses work by Hauerwas and Levinas in order to prepare the way for an alternative, more complementary approach to violence and peace from the perspective of Spirituality as a discipline.

Keywords : Spirituality; Peace; Violence; Hauerwas; Levinas; Spiritualiteit; Vrede; Geweld; Hauerwas; Levinas.
