Lebenskunst als Gottesdienst : Epiktets Theologie und ihr Verhältnis zum Neuen Testament


Vollenweider, Samuel (2013). Lebenskunst als Gottesdienst : Epiktets Theologie und ihr Verhältnis zum Neuen Testament. In: Vollenweider, Samuel. Epiktet. Was ist wahre Freiheit? Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 119-162.

Abstract

Der Essay ist Teil einer kommentierten und mit Essays und Exkursen verbundenen griechisch-deutschen Ausgabe von Epiktets Diatribe "Über die Freiheit" (IV 1). Der Essay beschäftigt sich mit der Frage von Analogien, von Konvergenzen, Parallelen und Differenzen zwischen Epiktets theologischen Texten und neutestamentlichen Schriften, besonders den paulinischen Briefen. In einem Anhang wird die Epiktet-Verwendung im "Neuen Wettstein", einer modernen, umfassenden Sammlung der "Parallelen" zwischen dem Neuen Testament und seiner griechisch- und lateinischsprachigen Umwelt, ausgewertet.

The essay, part of an edition of Epictetus' dissertation IV 1 (see below), deals with the complex relationship of early Christianity, especially Paul, and the Stoic philosopher Epictetus. A detailed eegesis of parts of diss. IV 1 helps to understand the dimensions of Epictetus' argument.

This is the whole book: "What is true freedom? Epictetus, Diatribe IV 1." With an introduction, translation and interpretive essays by Samuel Vollenweider, Manuel Baumbach, Eva Ebel, Maximilian Forschner, Thomas Schmeller.
Diatribe IV 1 "about Freedom" is one of the most compact (and at the same time one of the longest) of Epictetus' discourses (around 100 AD) which was handed down to us by the historian Arrian. This quintessential text not only combines many pivotal subjects taught by the Stoic but also demonstrates his remarkable art of persuasiveness. In addition to a detailed introduction, the text, the translation and a running commentary, the volume contains a series of essays which are based on passages in the text, and these reveal further Epictetian contexts as well as an analysis of the philosophical background and the contemporary environment. The authors deal with slavery and manumission, Epictetus' theory of freedom in relationship to the classical Stoic doctrine as well as Epictetus' theology and its relationship to the New Testament.
