    1. The Kingdom and the Glory is an almost unbelievably erudite book, surveying a huge array of material while also managing to read like a good detective story (yet minus any outright conspiracism, thankfully).For all the textual analysis and detail, Agamben advances a fairly straightforward argument: that the ancient Greek split between polis (public, city-state rule) and oikonomia (home management) was appropriated over time by Christian theology in order to rationalize the conceptual paradoxes w [...]


    2. Part V of author’s Homo Sacer project.Very impressive. The most substantial, rigorously sustained, and abjectly humbling argument in the Home Sacer series.Prefaced by the statement of purpose to investigate “why power in the West has assumed the form of an oikonomia, that is a government of men” (xi). It’s good to set modest goals for oneself, I suppose.Chapter 1 – The Two Paradigms The argument proceeds from the distinction between “political theology, which founds the transcendence [...]


    3. After many months reading this when I could steal some time away from myself, from school and work, reading just a few pages usually at a time, I am finally done with this. A lot of it was profoundly interesting, primarily the idea of tracing a genealogy of power in the west back through Christianity (which also owed much to obvious pagan influence as well, but become paradigmatic within the discourses of the early Christian church), to the particular ways in which it made use of Oikonomia/econo [...]


    4. The weirdest book on Trinitarian history you will ever read. Agamben (an atheist political philosopher, as it happens) starts from a basic question: why does power need glory? If power is, in its essence, action, activity, motion, why does it need the cumbersome ornamentation of ceremony, ritual, acclamation? To answer this question Agamben embarks on both a genealogy and archeology of glory. In short, Agamben argues at length that our forms of Kingdom, and our forms of Government, and the relat [...]


    5.

    6. Of the many things that can be said about the work of Giorgio Agamben, being lazy with his research isn't one of them. In fact, I imagine that if by some freak accident, all our sources regarding ancient and medieval theology were somehow lost to fire, one could, with a bit of extrapolation, reconstruct it all again just using Agamben's corpus of works. And if that really did come to pass, The Kingdom and the Glory - encyclopaedic as it is in its scope and its grasp - would be the go-to book fro [...]


    7. I testi di Agamben si inscrivono all'interno quel filone di pensiero che fa uso di un metodo chiamato "archeologia delle idee". In sostanza, Agamben va alla ricerca di quello che è stato il passato remoto di alcuni concetti contemporanei. In questo caso, il concetto analizzato è quello di "economia". Il punto di partenza è strabiliante: il termine greco "oikonomia", dal quale deriva la più moderna parola, venne utilizzato in ambito teologico, soprattutto per indicare il rapporto tra Dio e Ge [...]


    8. Agambens Art zu schreiben ist definitiv eine der schwierigsten, die mir begegnet ist. Wer an "Homo sacer" und "Ausnahmezustand" verzweifelt ist, dem kann von "Herrschaft und Herrlichkeit" nur abgeraten werden. Gewohnt dicht geschrieben springt Agamben mühelos durch die Jahrhunderte und thematisiert Denker verschiedenster Epochen. Ein Dutzend Debatten der Kirchenväter werden untersucht und interpretiert, so dass der normale Leser ohne gelegentliches Nachschlagen grenzenlos überfordert ist. Ein [...]



    9. «… a un libro come Il Regno e la Gloria manca fondamentalmente la descrizione di tutto ciò che manca sia al regno (cioè, la ‘tradizione degli oppressi’ e l’archeologia dei contropoteri) sia alla gloria (cioè, la tradizione delle oscure resistenze e l’archeologia delle ‘lucciole’). All’archeologia delle acclamazioni, derivata da Ernst Kantorowicz e da Carl Schmitt, manca un’archeologia delle manifestazioni, ossia delle rivoluzioni in cui i popoli fanno molto più che dire [...]


    10. L'essenza di questa puntigliosa analisi sulle correlazioni tra regno e governo, la troviamo in una pagina quasi alla fine del libro: La gloria, tanto in teologia che in politica, è precisamente ciò che prende il posto di quel vuoto impensabile che è l'inoperosità del potere. E il sovrano/dio è ozioso perchè non governa se non attraverso un'amministrazione delegata (oikonomia) che si incarica di esercitare il potere in suo nome. Ciò che precede la creazione del mondo e rimane dopo la sua f [...]


    11. The analysis is super interesting, providing insights on political theology in general, the way it is applied by Schmitt and the way it is applied by Peterson. Furthermore, it deals in great detail with theology, angelology and providence. Agamben's greatest contribution with this book is probably that it unravels the history of the term 'economy'. What it does not do, in spite of what it promises, is a radical theory of the political. It wants to, but ends up juxtaposing Habermas and Grimm. Lea [...]


    12. The more I come across Agamben, the more I am in affection to the way he's pouring out his brilliant mind. The Kingdom and Glory is the culmination of his 'Homo Sacer' and his 'State of Exception.' One book that provokes us who are thinking that reality is just as it is. Reality is construction. Christian reality is political construction. So, what is Truth?


    13. This is a really good volume and has a lot of insight into the condition of the theology underlying governance but also has this like *extremely irritating* and pedantic tone that Agamben is fond of along with just bricks of untranslated Latin that assume i (or any reader) is fluent that really keep it from being a 4 star book (more 3.5 stars)


    14. Note to self:Recommended by Davide "We need a new political model which means we need a new economy".Youtube video to watch by the author : youtube/watch?v=jz7dxe


    15. This book ned a lot of time to read for me a non philosophical man. One has to know the 20th centrury philosophy of Europe to fully appreciate the idea behind the bookill fighting with it :-)
