Glenn E. Snyder's Acts of Paul: The Formation of a Pauline Corpus PDF

By Glenn E. Snyder

Acts of Paul is a suite of early Christian traditions that weren't integrated within the canonized Acts: the Acts of Paul and Thekla , three Corinthians , the Martyrdom of Paul , and different superb tales, corresponding to Paul baptizing a lion. through the top of the second one century, there has been a rumor in North Africa that 'Acts of Paul' have been fabricated through a presbyter in Asia Minor (Tertullian, De baptismo 17.5); and to at the present time, it truly is alleged that Acts of Paul is later than and not so good as the traditions preserved in Acts - traditionally, theologically, and in a different way. yet what proof is there for the composition and reception of Acts of Paul ? during this examine Glenn E. Snyder significantly examines Greek, Latin, and Coptic witnesses to Acts of Paul from the second one to 6th centuries, with chapters at the independently circulating acts, extant collections, and different facts for the formation of Acts of Paul.

Das Konstanzer Konzil: Kirchenpolitik - Weltgeschehen - by Thomas Martin Buck,Herbert Kraume PDF

Das Konstanzer Konzil (1414-1418) zählt zu den bedeutendsten Konzilien der Kirchengeschichte. Es conflict nicht nur das erste Konzil auf deutschem Boden, sondern auch das einzige, dem es mit der Wahl Martins V. erfolgreich gelang, eine Kirchenspaltung zu beenden. Schon für die Zeitgenossen stand fest, dass es sich beim Constantiense um die bis dahin größte, längste und bedeutendste Kirchenversammlung des Mittelalters handelte, deren Ergebnisse bis heute in vielfacher Weise nachwirken.

The Fate of the Dead in Early Third Century North African by Eliezer Gonzalez PDF

The ideology and imagery within the ardour of Perpetua are mediated seriously through conventional Graeco-Roman tradition; specifically, via conventional notions of the afterlife and of the ascent of the soul. This context for realizing the eagerness of Perpetua aligns good with the on hand fabric proof, and with the writings of Tertullian, with whose ideology the textual content of Perpetua is in an implicit polemical discussion.
