REVITALISASI TRADISI DAN POLITIK IDENTITAS: DIALEKTIKA KRISTIANITAS DI MALUKU

Steve Gerardo Christoffel Gaspersz, Nancy Novitra Souisa

Abstract


One indicator in examining religious dynamics is the formation of a religious institution and its existence in its
history. This article attempts to analyze the historical dynamics of the establishment of the religious
institution, namely the Protestant Church of Maluku (GPM) in the Maluku (Ambon) socio-cultural context. The
scrutiny for exploring documents and constructing some interpretations of them is carried out using the social
hermeneutic method to understand (verstehen) the dialectic between ideal principles through the
internalization of Christian religious teachings and responses to various socio-cultural-political changes in the
context in which it lives. The hermeneutic analysis is carried out to obtain a comprehensive understanding
about the existence and religious orientation of the GPM, which is also influenced by the dialectic of
encounters with various other identities.

Keywords: identity politics, Christianity, tradition, modernity
