The Dorpat (Tartu) prize paper by the 19-year-old Adolf Harnack (1851-1930) with the title ""Marcion. Der moderne Gläubige des 2. Jahrhunderts, der erste Reformator"" (Marcion.

Christian theology and its institutions in the early Roman Empire : prolegomena to a history of early Christian theology by Christoph Markschies( )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in German and English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tension between unity and diversity plagues any attempt to recount the development of earliest Christianity. Explanations run the gamut -- from asserting the presence of a fully formed and accepted unity at the beginning of Christianity to the hypothesis that understands orthodox unity as a later imposition upon Christianity by Rome. In Christian Theology and Its Institutions in the Early Roman Empire, Christoph Markschies seeks to unravel the complex problem of unity and diversity by carefully examining the institutional settings for the development of Christian theology. Specifically, Markschies contends that theological diversity is closely bound up with institutional diversity. Markschies clears the ground by tracing how previous studies fail to appreciate the critical role that diverse Christian institutions played in creating and establishing the very theological ideas that later came to define them. He next examines three distinct forms of institutional life --the Christian institutions of (higher) learning, prophecy, and worship -- and their respective contributions to Christianity's development. Markschies then focuses his attention on the development of the New Testament canon, demonstrating how different institutions developed their own respective "canons," while challenging views that assign a decisive role to Athanasius, Marcion, or the Gnostics. Markschies concludes by arguing that the complementary model of the "identity" and "plurality" of early Christianity is better equipped to address the question of unity and diversity than Walter Bauer's cultural Protestant model of "orthodoxy and heresy" or the Jesuit model of the "inculturation" of Christianity."--Provided by publisher

11 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gnosis : an introduction by Christoph Markschies( Book )

38 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Gnosis (""Erkenntnis"") gehört zu den faszinierendsten Erscheinungen der Religionsgeschichte. Direkte Parallelen zur Esoterik haben in letzter Zeit das Interesse an dieser Religionsform stark anwachsen lassen. Christoph Markschies beschreibt allgemeinverständlich die Mythen und Lehren der antiken Gnosis. Er erläutert, wie die Gnosis als Versuch entstanden ist, das Christentum durch ""vernünftige"" Erklärungen den Gebildeten zu vermitteln, und welche Ähnlichkeiten mit anderen antiken Religionen es gibt. Nicht zuletzt geht er den Linien nach, die bis in die unmittelbare Gegenwart führen. Mit
Die Kommentierung des Buches Genesis by Christoph Markschies( )

1 edition published in 2010 in Greek, Modern and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Origens work is mainly preserved only in fragments, as he was condemned as a heretic after his death. Thus only a fraction of his commentary on Genesis is still in existence, albeit a relatively large portion of the work and one of particular significance, as the story of the Creation is used to treat major themes in cosmology and views of destiny. Fragments of the history of the Patriarchs provide examples of Origens idiosyncratic hermeneutics in its allegorical and psychological interpretation

Between two worlds : structures of early Christianity by Christoph Markschies( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What was it like to be a Christian in the first centuries after Jesus? How much change did conversion bring to people's lives? How far did they live up to the lofty ideals of their founder? How far did Christianity develop a distinctive way of life, and how far did it constantly have to compromise with the world around it?" "In this study of questions which have never been investigated before at this depth, Christoph Markschies paints a fascinating picture of Christian social life and the development of Christian institutions. Drawing on contemporary sources, both Christian and pagan, not least on the great series of sermons of fourth-century preachers which indicate what was really going on in their churches, he shows leaders constantly facing new issues under the pressure of public demand."--Jacket

Gottes Körper Jüdische, christliche und pagane Gottesvorstellungen in der Antike by Christoph Markschies( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his brilliantly-described book on ancient religion, Christoph Markschies acquaints us with a Christianity that seems astonishingly strange, rooted deeply in the world of pagan images of God. He discusses the connections between Christianity and ancient religion, and explains why it was that in the Middle Ages, the depiction of God that is familiar to us today--as a bodiless being--first became generally accepted. Does God have a body, and if so, how many? In antiquity, it was self-evident even to educated Christians that God had a body, just as the pagan gods did. Christoph Markschies shows how the physical body of God was imagined; he follows the philosophical and theological debates on the subject; he visits the ancient temples; and he describes the complex relationship between the Judeo-Christian God and the pagan gods
