  • Porphyry in Fragmentsby Ariane Magny

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 104.95

    The Greek philosopher Porphyry of Tyre had a reputation as the fiercest critic of Christianity. It was well-deserved: he composed fifteen discourses against the Christians, so offensive that Christian emperors ordered them to be burnt. We thus rely on the testimonies of three prominent Christian writers to know what Porphyry wrote. Porphyry in Fragments... more...

  • The Politics of Evangelical Identityby Lydia Bean

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    It is now a common refrain among liberals that Christian Right pastors and television pundits have hijacked evangelical Christianity for partisan gain. The Politics of Evangelical Identity challenges this notion, arguing that the hijacking metaphor paints a fundamentally distorted picture of how evangelical churches have become politicized. The... more...

  • The Medieval Churchby Joseph H. Lynch; Phillip C. Adamo

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    The Medieval Church: A Brief History argues for the pervasiveness of the Church in every aspect of life in medieval Europe. It shows how the institution of the Church attempted to control the lives and behaviour of medieval people, for example, through canon law, while at the same time being influenced by popular movements like the friars and heresy.... more...

  • Theologian of Sin and Graceby Luka Ilic

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 66.99

    The Croatian-born Matthias Flacius Illyricus (1520?1575) was a Lutheran theologian and reformer who spent most of his adult life in the German-speaking territories of the Holy Roman Empire, playing an important role within the Evangelical churches and in the confessionalization of his day. Luka Ilic establishes that Flacius? theology became increasingly... more...

  • Die ersten drei Jahre Christentumby Gerd Lüdemann

    zu Klampen 2014; US$ 11.16

    Die früheste Zeit der christlichen Kirche läge im Dunkel der Geschichte ? gäbe es da nicht die kanonische Apostelgeschichte des Lukas. Sie gilt als die einzige Quelle über die Frühzeit der Kirche und hat schon deshalb eine ungeheure Wirkung entfaltet. Nicht zuletzt sind ihre Daten zu Jesu Auferstehung und Himmelfahrt sowie zur Ausgießung des heiligen... more...

Jerome, Augustine and Gregory the Great). A key figure in the transition of the later Roman Empire into its medieval successor, Western Christendom, Ambrose was deeply involved in the political,... more...

  • Kaiser Julians Gottesverehrung im Kontext der Spätantikeby Sara Stöcklin-Kaldewey

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 99.38

    Die hohe Relevanz der Götter- und Glaubenswelt in den Schriften Julians ist unübersehbar. Seine kaiserliche Stellung und Biographie haben dem vielfach artikulierten religiösen Gedankengut seit jeher Beachtung verschafft, denn sie machen Julian zu einer Schlüsselfigur für das Verständnis der religiösen Kultur der Spätantike. In einer systematischen... more...

  • Illumination in Basil of Caesarea's Doctrine of the Holy Spiritby Timothy P. McConnell

    Fortress Press 2014; US$ 54.99

    Although Basil of Caesarea was the first to write a discourse on the Holy Spirit, many scholars have since questioned if he fully believed in the Spirit?s divinity. Timothy McConnell argues that Basil did regard the Spirit as fully divine and an equal Person of the Trinity. However, Basil refused to use philosophical terminology to make the point,... more...
