CILLIERS, J.. The absence of presence: homiletical reflections on Luther's notion of the masks of God (larvae Dei). Acta theol. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.2, pp. 36-49. ISSN 2309-9089.

This paper addresses a complex but core issue of preaching, namely the experience of the elusiveness of God's presence (revelation) by taking cognisance of the notion of masking. Besides being a common cultural phenomenon, the art of masking could also be evaluated theologically and therefore homiletically. Luther's understanding of the masks of God (larvae dei) is introduced into the discussion, and a number of homiletical implications are drawn in view of the continuous tension that exists between God's revealing and his concealing.

Palavras-chave : Revelation; Presence; Absence; Masks.
