„Mitten auf dem Areopag“. Überlegungen zu den Schnittstellen zwischen antiker Philosophie und Neuem Testament


Vollenweider, Samuel (2012). „Mitten auf dem Areopag“. Überlegungen zu den Schnittstellen zwischen antiker Philosophie und Neuem Testament. Early Christianity, 3(3):296-320.

Abstract

In front of the Areopagus speech of Acts 17 this essay queries which historical and herme-neutical aspects are to be considered when one deals with the relationship of ancient phi-losophy and early Christian literature. With that, different perspectives must be joined: Both, Christian reception of philosophical contents and methods on one hand and ap-proaches for an explicit dialogue respectively controversy on the other hand, can be drawn into the discourses in the overarching context of Hellenistic culture, in which both philoso-phy and Christianity present themselves as guides to an extensive orientation of life.

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.
