In the New Testament polemics plays an important role, both as objective dispute and as literary strategy. To reconstruct the character of Jesus it is necessary to thematically deal with polemics in oral and written form. The same applies to Paul, who was a great polemicist. This book aims to analyze the literary and objective forms of New Testament polemics, also in the writings of the second and third generation of Early Christianity, and to integrate them into the theoretical and historical contexts of literature in Antiquity and of the church writers.
