關帝崇拜:關帝的不同神格(4之3)

關帝的不同神格 關帝被視為神通廣大的神靈,受到各階層的廣泛崇祀。他之所以能取得如此廣泛的信仰,除歷代帝王的褒揚崇封外,明朝《三國演義》的廣泛傳播起了很大作用。 在關羽崇拜極盛的明清兩代,盛傳很多關帝顯靈的故事。大都為佑助官軍剿滅異己或農民起義。如關羽顯靈助戰,使朱元璋在鄱陽湖大勝陳友諒,正德(1506年~1521年)時鎮壓劉六、劉七起義,天啟… 詳閱

Chong Ho Yu 余創豪Chong Ho Yu (Alex) chonghoyu@gmail.com 美國哲學家丹尼爾‧丹尼特(Daniel Dennett )是新無神論運動四大騎士之一,他毫不含糊地宣稱,他希望有一天梵蒂岡會改名為「羅馬天主教的歐洲博物館」,而麥加會成為「亞拉的迪斯尼魔法王國」(Disney’s Magic Kingdom of Allah)。你可能以為我會在這篇文章中反駁丹尼特,但我將會說的話可能會令你感到意外:在有些情況下,將宗教場所… 詳閱
