Divine Multiplicity

This chapter enlists recent work by David H. Kelsey and Ivone Gebara in theological anthropology, along with various contemporary feminist voices, in order to queer the human creature in relation to the divine. Drawing on the Christian tradition that discerns “vestiges of the Trinity” within creation, it brings the strange seraphic nature of trinitarian relationality into focus to reveal how the nature of those creaturely vestiges themselves—in both human and nonhuman vessels—takes on a strangeness that exceeds and decenters any strict anthropocentric view of creaturely identity and value. “What emerges is a divine relationality that illumines ecologically convivial, queer creatures—a blur of human, animal, bird, elements, and divine warmth—where the burning passion of seraphim in all of their suffering and ecstasy might more closely model a contemporary hope for a ‘posthuman’ vision of theological anthropology”.
