Prokop von Gaza: Eclogarum in libros historicos Veteris Testamenti epitome, Teil 1: Der Genesiskommentar

Prokop von Gaza (ca. 465/470-526/530) verfasste einen großen Kommentar zu den meisten Geschichtsbüchern des Alten Testaments (CPG 7430, bisher fälschlich als Catena in Octateuchum oder Catena in Heptateuchum bezeichnet). Hier wird die kritische Edition des ersten Teil, des Genesiskommentars, vorgelegt; sie enthält zum ersten Mal den vollständigen griechischen Text.

Hinter dem fortlaufenden Texts Prokops verbirgt sich eine Sammlung von Exzerpten aus der Bibelexegese der griechischen Kirchenväter, die man zu seiner Zeit für die gültige Auslegung des Alten Testaments hielt. Besonderen Quellenwert haben diejenigen Exzerpte, für die sich in der uns erhaltenen Überlieferung keine Vorlage, oft nicht einmal der Name des Autors, identifizieren lässt; hier verbergen sich Fragmente, die in ihrer vollständigen Fassung verloren gegangen sind, sei es, weil ihre Verfasser auf späteren Konzilien zu Ketzern erklärt wurden, sei es, weil (gerade bei orientalischen Autoren) die vollständigen Handschriften während der arabischen Eroberung verloren gingen. Das Werk ist daher eine wichtige Quelle für alle, die sich mit der Älteren Kirchengeschichte oder die Exegese des Alten Testaments beschäftigen.

Die mit Anmerkungen versehene deutsche Übersetzung der Editorin wird in Kürze in einer neuen Unterreihe der „Griechischen christlichen Schriftsteller“ erscheinen.

Hellenisierung des Christentums

Markschies, Christoph, Hellenisierung des Christentums: Sinn und Unsinn einer historischen Deutungskategorie. Theologische Literaturzeitung. Forum 25. Leipzig: Evangelische Verlagsanstalt, 2012.

„L'Hellénisation du christianisme“ n'est pas seulement une des catégories centrales de l'historien de l'Eglise et organisateur de sciences de Berlin célèbre Adolf von Harnack (1851-1930) pour décrire la formation du christianisme antique. Comme le montre, par exemple, le discours controversé du pape Benoît XVI tenue à Regensburg en 2006, cette catégorie joue un rôle crucial dans les conceptions theólogiques et historiques du christianisme. Le plus souvent, une transformation du christianisme par la culture hellénistique-romaine dans l'Empire romain „mondialisé“ est désignée par ce terme.

Christoph Markschies analyse l'histoire de ce terme et des très différentes définitions et conceptions y liées, informe sur les préhistoires en partie complètement oublies (dans l'humanisme français de la renaissance par exemple) et propose finalement comment ce terme peut être employé aujourd'hui de manière raisonnable malgré une préhistoire non sans problèmes.

Atlas der Weltbilder (Atlas of the World Pictures)

Atlas der Weltbilder. Hg. Christoph Markschies, Ingeborg Reichle, Jochen Brüning und Peter Deuflhard unter Mitarbeit von Steffen Siegel und Achim Spelten. Forschungsberichte Interdisziplinäre Arbeitsgruppen, Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften Bd. 25. Berlin: Akademie-Verlag, 2011. (2. Auflage ebd. 2012).

World production of visual practices in the form of world views can be observed even in ancient times and have been proven to date as a means of constructing ideas of order. Since time immemorial, the conceptual order of the world is facing an exemplary illustrative order. However, the essential importance of clarity in our understanding of the world plays and has produced the most diverse worldviews is more than a mere repetition of seeing. The imagery of the world views not only give us a vivid picture of the world and the cosmos. They are also powerful tools for effective practical and theoretical activity in the world and form in many different ways our ideas of the world and our worldview. The basic questions to be asked here, have not really changed through the centuries. They concern the people comprehensive order and its position within this order: Which shape has the world? What are the forces and ideas work in it? What is it made? How did it originate? What is their future? Already the early examples of worldviews make it clear that the accuracy of both images and stories for publication in reality is always brought forth by the people and therefore always interpreted means reality and symbolic construction. The samples collected at the same time represent different visual media available as an image in the service of the construction of the world. Thus the history of the world views is not only a history of changing ideas of the world, but also a history of changing methods of representation and different carrier media. The Atlas of World images cover a wide range of artifacts and proceeds from a large temporal arc that begins with ancient Egyptian and Ancient Near Eastern concepts of the world and ends with current simulations in astrophysics. The Atlas of World Images, documenting aspects of visual culture history world production world in the form of images from the past two and a half millennia. Paradigmatic analysis of the principles and functions as well as the history and meaning of world views provide comprehensive information on this extensive topic for the first time.
