JUSTICE = RIGHTEOUSNESS = RELIGIOUS FAITH

  • According to Plato, justice also means righteousness
  • Righteousness (also called rectitude) is a theological concept in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. It is an attribute that implies that a person’s actions are justified, and can have the connotation that the person has been “judged” or “reckoned” as leading a life that is pleasing to God.
  • we should think of God as the paradigm, the locus, the source of all righteousness
  • The Bible says: “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
  • “…a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith.'” Romans 1:17
  • In the Eastern Orthodox Church, “Righteous” is a type of saint who is regarded as a holy person

SAINTS IN CONTEMPORARY ART

  • Sankt Nimmerlein (Various & Gould)
  • This screen-print series consisting of 10 Holy Helpers is named after the fictional patron Sankt Nimmerlein (translated to Saint Neverever) and is based on the traditional depiction of Christian saints. Each print deals with a particular relevant social issue such as climate change, globalization or the financial crisis. Due to the high complexity and ambivalence of these topics, they require being discussed and considered from different point of views.
