Abstract
The aim of this thesis is to study the anthropology of contemporary Swedish ecotheology and theo­logy of creation, Bo Brander, Per Larsson and Wilfrid Stinissen, in comparison with the ecofeminist theology of Sallie McFague.

Man is responsible in relation to the real Owner... (More)
The aim of this thesis is to study the anthropology of contemporary Swedish ecotheology and theo­logy of creation, Bo Brander, Per Larsson and Wilfrid Stinissen, in comparison with the ecofeminist theology of Sallie McFague. The Swedish theologians in this study describe man as steward, micro­cosm, priest, co-sufferer and the image of God. McFague use the term partner when describing man, a term which is connected to the responsibility of man, but also the fellowship between man and God. The relationship between man and creation is by all theologians in this thesis described by both pointing to the responsibility of man but also the love and the mutual relationship between man and creation. Man is responsible in relation to the real Owner of the world, therefore man is in his relationship with God both a steward and a mediator. The contribution of McFague is her focus on the body, both creation as made up of bodies but also the view of the world as the body of God. This is also one of the strongest connections between Stinissen and McFague. McFague also focuses on the importance that man know who he is, and to know (in both sense of the word) the place in which he lives. Man, according to ecotheology is in a double relationship. He is the image of God and steward/partner of God and as someone who is created, is part of Creation with his place in and with the rest of creation. (Less)
