Abstract

Unique states of consciousness and the early Christian religion. An alternative opinion
concerning psychological exegesis: This essay addresses the early Christian dealings with
“Altered States of Consciousness” (ASC: vision, ecstasy, trance, mystic). It refers to current
religio-psychological trends which are interested in “ASC”, especially for their cross-cultural
and neuro-psychological aspects. The psychology of “ASC” offers the Bible exegesis an
alternative to others, often using reductionist proceeding psychological models. It allows
vision and ecstasy as universal anthropological phenomena to be perceived.
Der Aufsatz widmet sich dem urchristlichen Umgang mit „Altered States of Consciousness“ (ASC: Vision, Ekstase, Trance, ‚Mystik’). Er nimmt Bezug auf aktuelle religionspsychologische Strömungen, die sich für „ASC“ interessieren, besonders für ihre kulturübergreifenden und neuropsychologischen Aspekte. Die Psychologie der „ASC“ bietet der Bibelexegese eine Alternative zu anderen, oft reduktionistisch verfahrenden psychologischen Modellen. Sie erlaubt es, Vision und Ekstase als universelle anthropologische Phänomene wahrzunehmen.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
