Narrative Theology in the works of Ukrainian Protestant researchers
Keywords:Narrative Theology, Ukrainian Protestantism, Apostolic Creed, Linguistic Religious Studies
The article reviews the variety of narrative methodologies in contemporary Ukrainian Protestant Theology and reveals universal instruments that could be used in textual analysis from the position of Religious Studies.The author suggests her own approach to classification of narrative sources of domestic Protestantism. Basing on this approach, she clarifies the discrepancies between Protestant self-presentation of their narrative sources and analysis of these sources from the position of Religious Studies. In particular, she proves that Ukrainian Protestant thought, mastering the achievements of Narrative Theology, made special accent on the role of community that interprets the Bible and itself. Ukrainian Protestant intellectuals, granting this central place to local community, consciously used Narrative Theology in order to interpret the domestic Protestant tradition (A. Puzynin). Another domestic researcher (R. Soloviy) claimed that this accent on special significance of community and its spiritual experience, characteristic for Ukrainian Protestants, betokens Post-Conservative type of Protestant Theology in Post-Modern times.
