Handbuch der antiken christlichen Literatur by Claudio Moreschini( Book )

Manual de patrología en perspectiva literaria. Los autores han elegido como opción metodológica y punto de partida para el estudio de la Antigüedad cristiana el hecho literario mismo, el cual es enriquecido con las correspondientes referencias biográficas de las principales figuras, la presentación sucinta de las ideas más relevantes y su contextualidad en las instituciones que articulan la sociedad. Conviene recordar, con todo, que lo característico de la literatura cristiana no es ni la lengua utilizada (fundamentalmente el griego y el latín, pero también el siriaco, el copto, el armenio, etc.), ni los autores, ni tan siquiera las doctrinas en conflicto, sino una específica tradición religiosa que tiene en su centro a Jesús de Nazaret, llamado el Cristo. Los diversos modos literarios de referirse a él así como las imágenes tan variadas que de él se materializan en la historia serán las que en último término pongan de relieve la riqueza y pluralidad del hecho cristiano

18 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written while Boethius was in prison, in the period leading up to his brutal execution, this is a dialogue of alternating prose and verse between the ailing prisoner and his 'nurse' Philosophy, whose instruction on the nature of fortune and happiness, good and evil, fate and free will, restore his health and bring him to enlightenment. The clarity of the author's thought and his breadth of vision made this book hugely popular throughout medieval Europe and his ideas suffused the thought of Chaucer and Dante
Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

31 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Phaedrus is widely recognized as one of Plato's most profound and beautiful works. It takes the form of a dialogue between Socrates and Phaedrus and its ostensible subject is love, especially homoerotic love. Socrates reveals it to be a kind of divine madness that can allow our souls to grow wings and soar to their greatest heights. Then the conversation changes direction and turns to a discussion of rhetoric, which must be based on truth passionately sought, thus allying it to philosophy. The dialogue closes by denigrating the value of the written word in any context, compared to the living teaching of a Socratic philosopher." "The shifts of topic and register have given rise to doubts about the unity of the dialogue, doubts which are addressed in the introduction to this volume. Full explanatory notes also elucidate issues throughout the dialogue that might puzzle a modern reader."--Jacket

A Christian in Toga : Boethius: interpreter of antiquity and Christian theologian by Claudio Moreschini( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boethius is apparently the first Christian writer who was not engaged in dogmatic and theological problems from an ecclesiastical point of view. Boethius hadn't any ecclesiastical office, but was engaged in politics under King Theoderic in Italy, and from his youth he had devoted himself to Aristotelian and Platonic philosophy. Some of his medieval commentators noticed the unchristian, simply Platonic character of his philosophy. Claudio Moreschini, on the basis of Boethius' Opuscula Theologica and Consolatio Philosophiae, shows how he combined Christian faith and philosophy in order to solve
