Puritanism: a piety of joy

kategoria10.jpgDas Journal kategorial: a critical review of modern life hat 1998 einen Artikel über die Puritaner veröffentlicht. Der Beitrag beginnt mit einem wunderschönen Zitat von Richard Siebes (1577–1635):

We do all for joy. All that we do is that we may joy at length. It is the centre of the soul. As rest is to motion, so the desire of all is to joy, to rest in joy. So that heaven itself is termed by the name of joy, hap­ piness itself … What is our life without joy? Without joy we can do nothing … A Christian, which way soever he look, hath matter of joy …; the state of a Christian is a state of joy.
