Claiming Emanant Theology©


As a matter of public record, I hereby lay claim and copyright to the term Emanant Theology©. So far as my reasonably exhaustive research demonstrates, this term is not in generalized use, not in colloquial use, is not the expressed purview of any formal or informal religious institution or organization, nor is it featured in either conventional or academic genres specific to any location or locations, worldwide.


I seminally define Emanant Theology© as a type of lived, causative theology which emerges in the context of daily life, so much as one’s theological aspirations and conclusions are informed, and then formed, potentially, but not necessarily, by a confluence of cultural, social, political, economic, holistic, spiritual, religious and extant theological factors and influences. Emanant Theology© describes an organically emerging theology, both observable and experiential, whether constituted separately or in the aggregate as a matter of both form and/or substance, altogether hypothetical, theoretical, and practical, and neither divorced from, nor dependent on, utilitarian engagement. Emanant Theology© remains rooted in definable, foundational principles despite its tendency to be adaptable and evolutionary in nature. Emanant Theology© is not restricted to any one faith tradition nor to any individual or collective cultural, social, political, economic, holistic, spiritual, religious or extant theological setting or settings.


Emanant Theology© is and will be included as the precise subject of my present and future academic research. The term Emanant Theology©, and its meanings and applications, will evolve as that research progresses. Persons or institutions wishing to participate in that research, or wishing to conduct their own research in Emanant Theology©, are directed to: (1) first contact me via email at <>, and; (2) avoid potential acts of plagiarism by adhering to the generally accepted methods of academic citation. I encourage, and look forward to, the global academic community’s response and  subsequent engagement.
