Das Motiv einer Gottheit, die ein Schlangenmonster bekampft, ist in verschiedenen Kulturraumen zu finden. Anna-Katharina Hopflinger untersucht in ihrer religionswissenschaftlichen Arbeit Bilder und Texte zu diesem Motiv anhand von Quellen aus dem griechischen und altorientalischen Kulturraum. Sie befasst sich mit Zeus im Kampf gegen Typhon, Phytons Erschiessung durch Apollon und Marduks Kampf gegen Tiamat. Die ausgewahlten Bilder und Texte werden anhand eines semiotischen Zugangs in parallelen Schritten analysiert und einem mehrschichtigen Vergleich unterzogen. Die Arbeit bietet neue Einsichten zum Drachenmotiv und leistet einen Beitrag zur aktuellen Diskussion um den religionswissenschaftlichen Vergleich sowie zum Wechselspiel zwischen Bildern und Texten als Medien von Religion. Anna-Katharina Hopflinger, Dr.sc.rel., Jahrgang 1976, ist Religionswissenschaftlerin an den Universitaten Zurich, Neuenburg und Graz.

This re-evaluation of the place of Nemesis in the Roman World shows that the goddess was associated less with the lower classes than with the emperor and state. It also reveals her as particularly connected with the "munus" and "venatio" as the result of a function peculiar to these games.

Jesus Christ, Sun of God

Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism

The early Christian Gnosis did not spring up in isolation, but drew upon earlier sources. In this book, many of these sources are revealed for the first time. Special emphasis is placed on the Hellenistic doctrine of the "Solar Logos" and the early Christian symbolism which depicted Christ as the Spiritual Sun, the illumination source of order, harmony, and spiritual insight. Based on 15 years of research, this is a unique book which throws a penetrating light on the secret traditions of early Christianity. It clearly demonstrates that number is at the heart of being. Jesus Christ, Sun of God, illustrates how the Christian symbolism of the Spiritual Sun is derived from numerical symbolism of the "ancient divinities."
