Part of the Radical Theologies and Philosophies book series (RADT)


Although a theoretical connection between radical theology and Hinduism is not immediately apparent, this chapter argues in support of such connectedness. As an apocalyptic reversal of orthodox doctrines and retrieval of a more authentic Christian core, radical theology deploys the main principles operative in the tradition of Yoga, and especially Tantra. The hermeneutic dialectic between hegemonic and subaltern interpretations in both Christianity and Hinduism have elicited ever deeper understandings of the original kerygma. Both are radicalizing their respective traditions and enacting revolutionary forms of coincidentia oppositorum, incorporating the other, the repressed, in all its forms.
