Das Corpus Johanneum bei Irenäus von Lyon

Studien und Kommentar zum dritten Buch von Adversus Haereses

English summary: How does the Asian bishop Irenaeus of Lyon respond to the Gnostic challenge? What is the role of Johannine theology in his answer, and how does he allude to and explain Johannine verses or words? In giving a theological and philological commentary on the third book of Adversus Haereses, the author attempts to find an answer to these questions. In the first Christian approach to a systematic theology, the church father of the second century deals with the questions of the unity of God, Christ, creation, incarnation and salvation. In all these topics, Irenaeus bases his theories substantially on the Corpus Johanneum and Johannine theology. It is his opinion that the Gospel according to John, the Apocalypse and the Epistles of John were all written by John of Ephesus, the disciple of the Lord, as he calls him. German description: Im dritten Band seines hauptsachlich gegen valentinianische Erkenntnis (Gnosis) und gegen Markion gerichteten Hauptwerkes - es ist zugleich die erste Dogmatik der Kirche - zeigt der sudgallische Bischof von Lyon um 185 n.Chr., wie mit Hilfe des Corpus Johanneum wesentliche theologische Herausforderungen der Gnosis biblisch-theologisch beantwortet werden konnen. Dies betrifft hermeneutische Fragen nach Schrift und Tradition ebenso wie die zentralen Fragen nach Gott und nach Jesus Christus. Thematisch wird dies anhand der Einheit Gottes, seinem Schopfersein, der Inkarnation und der Soteriologie aufgezeigt. Dabei ist Irenaus der erste Autor, der mit hoher Wortlautgenauigkeit und unter ausdrucklichem Hinweis auf die Quelle zitiert und so als erster eine biblisch-heilsgeschichtliche Theologie entwirft. Bernhard Mutschler untersucht Aufbau und Einheit des dritten Buches sowie die verschiedene Reihenfolge der Evangelien bei Irenaus. Er kommentiert alle bisher identifizierten sowie neu aufgefundenen Bezugnahmen auf das Evangelium nach Johannes, die Johannesbriefe und die Johannesapokalypse.

Glaube in den Pastoralbriefen

Pistis als Mitte christlicher Existenz

English summary: The Pastoral Epistles speak more than other early Christian scriptures about faith ( pistis ), and they do it differently than Paul does. An interpretation of all the records of faith (pistis word family) shows that the scope of pistis in the Corpus Pastorale is huge. On the one hand, it is a primary word, framing all references of Christian life, and on the other hand it is completely determined by the relation to Christ and/or God. Thus faith has an integrating character, and at the same time it indicates the center of Christian existence. At the beginning of this first monograph about faith in the Pastoral Epistles, the author examines some fundamental terms, such as faith, pistis, fides/credere as well as the Corpus Pastorale, the Pastoral Epistles or the TritoPaulines. German description: Vom Glauben (Pistis) ist in den Pastoralbriefen in vielfachen Kontexten und mehr als in anderen fruhchristlichen Schriften die Rede. Trotz des sehr engen Anschlusses an Paulus sind aber z.B. nicht die Werke des Gesetzes als Gegensatz im Blick. Eine Auslegung samtlicher Belege zeigt, dass Pistis im Corpus Pastorale eine grosse Breite aufweist: Glaube bildet einerseits eine Art Rahmenbegriff und Grundwort fur das Christliche uberhaupt und bleibt andererseits christologisch bestimmt; er bildet die Grundrelation zwischen Gott und Mensch und stellt eine belastbare Basis der Gemeinschaft dar. Pistis hat integrierenden Charakter und bezeichnet die Mitte christlicher Existenz . Zu Beginn der bisher einzigen Monographie zum Thema untersucht Bernhard Mutschler die Begriffe Glaube/glauben, Pistis/pisteuein, fides/credere sowie Pastoralbriefe, Corpus Pastorale und Tritopaulinen ausfuhrlich.

The Politics of Translation in the Middle Ages and the Rennaissance

Author: Renate Blumenfeld-Kosinski

Publisher: University of Ottawa Press

ISBN: 0776619756

View: 3202

The articles in this collection, written by medievalists and Renaissance scholars, are part of the recent "cultural turn" in translation studies, which approaches translation as an activity that is powerfully affected by its socio-political context and the demands of the translating culture. The links made between culture, politics, and translation in these texts highlight the impact of ideological and political forces on cultural transfer in early European thought. While the personalities of powerful thinkers and translators such as Erasmus, Etienne Dolet, Montaigne, and Leo Africanus play into these texts, historical events and intellectual fashions are equally important: moments such as the Hundred Years War, whose events were partially recorded in translation by Jean Froissart; the Political tussles around the issues of lay readers and rewriters of biblical texts; the theological and philosophical shift from scholasticism to Renaissance relativism; or European relations with the Muslim world add to the interest of these articles. Throughout this volume, translation is treated as a form of writing, as the production of text and meaning, carried out in a certain cultural and political ambiance, and for identifiable - though not always stated - reasons. No translation, this collection argues, is an innocent, transparent rendering of the original.

By interpreting key passages from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, Rhetorics and Politics, Friederike Rese shows the fundamental relevance of reason and speech for action.

Colonial and Global Interfacings

Imperial Hegemonies and Democratizing Resistances

How space is owned through practices of domination that emerged through colonialism and have been sustained through capitalist social relations in a 'post-colonial' context. How Imperial power created, in Foucault's words, a 'boomerang effect' whereby the techniques developed to control and subjugate colonial subjects worked with such efficiency that they were imported back into Western societies to create new orders of control. How while new social movements such as the Zapatistas have remapped the rural and developed new ways to challenge and transform politics, Western societies have sought to reconstruct the world order through economic processes and military strategy. How the self-image of the West is shaped by its relationship with the 'Rest,' but also how the rest has found news ways of constructing identity that are now transforming the West as people, images, commodities, and meanings flow through the global economy. The cases considered cover every continent, contrast the West with the East as well as the global North with the global South, and prompt us to take history seriously in the construction of the present. Addressing the current buzzwords that have spread from geography across the social sciences and the humanities, this book will appeal to researchers and practitioners fascinated by the connections between cultural representation, power, spatiality, and how the ways we have been thinking about the world are open to question.

Al-Farabi and His School

Author: Ian Richard Netton

ISBN: 113495980X

Category: Philosophy

Page: 128

Examines one of the most exciting and dynamic periods in the development of medieval Islam, from the late 9th to the early 11th century, through the thought of five of its principal thinkers, prime among them al-Farabi. This great Islamic philosopher, called 'the Second Master' after Aristotle, produced a recognizable school of thought in which others pursued and developed some of his own intellectual preoccupations. Their thought is treated with particular reference to the most basic questions which can be asked in the theory of knowledge or epistemology. The book thus fills a lacuna in the literature by using this approach to highlight the intellectual continuity which was maintained in an age of flux. Particular attention is paid to the ethical dimensions of knowledge.
