Christ's resurrection in early Christianity : and the making of the New Testament by Markus Vinzent( )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and German and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is the Resurrection of Christ so remote, almost non-existent in many early Christian writings of the first 140 years of Christianity? This is the first Patristic book to focus on the development of the belief in the Resurrection of Christ through the first centuries A.D. By Paul, Christ's Resurrection is regarded as the basis of Christian hope. In the fourth century it becomes a central Christian tenet. Today, it is even seen as the kick-start of the movement after Jesus' death on the cross. But what about the discrepancy in the first three centuries? This thought provoking book explores this core topic in Christian culture and theology. Taking a broad approach - including iconography, archaeology, history, philosophy, Jewish Studies and theology - Markus Vinzent offers innovative reading of well known texts complemented by rarely discussed evidence. "Christ's Resurrection in Early Christianity", takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the wilderness of unorthodox perspectives in the breadth of early Christian writings. It is an eye-opening experience with insights into the craftsmanship of early Christianity, the earliest existential debates about life and death, death and life. They all centred on the cross, on suffering, enduring and sacrifice."--Publisher's description
Against Marcellus ; and, On ecclesiastical theology by Eusebius( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first English translation of the last two theological works of Eusebius of Caesarea, Against Marcellus and On Ecclesiastical Theology. The first text was composed after the deposition of Marcellus of Ancyra in 336 to justify the action of the council fathers in ordering the deposition on the grounds of heresy, contending that Marcellus was "Sabellian" (or modalist) on the Trinity and a follower of Paul of Samosata (hence adoptionist) in Christology. Relying heavily upon extensive quotations from a treatise Marcellus wrote against Asterius the Sophist, this text provides important information about ecclesiastical politics in the period before and just after the Council of Nicea, and endeavors to demonstrate Marcellus's erroneous interpretation of several key biblical passages that had been under discussion since before the council. In doing so, Eusebius criticizes Marcellus's inadequate account of the distinction between the persons of the Trinity, eschatology, and the Church's teaching about the divine and human identities of Christ. On Ecclesiastical Theology, composed circa 338/339 just before Eusebius's death, and perhaps in response to the amnesty for deposed bishops enacted by Constantius after the death of Constantine in 337 and the possibility of Marcellus's return to his see, continues to lay out the criticisms initially put forward in Against Marcellus, again utilizing quotations from Marcellus's book against Asterius. However, we see in this text a much more systematic explanation of Eusebius's objections to the various elements of Marcellus's theology and what he sees as the proper orthodox articulation of those elements. Long overlooked for statements at odds with later orthodoxy, even written off as heretical because allegedly "semi-Arian," recent scholarship has demonstrated the tremendous influence these texts had on the Greek theological tradition in the fourth century, especially on the orthodox understanding of the Trinity. In addition to their influence, they are some of the few complete texts that we have from Greek theologians in the period immediately following the Council of Nicea in 325, thus filling a gap in the materials available for research and teaching in this critical phase of theological development."--Jacket

Writing the history of early Christianity : from reception to retrospection by Markus Vinzent( )

9 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite novel approaches to the study of Early Christianity - New Historicity, New Philology, Gender and Queer Studies; many turns - Material, Linguistic, Cultural; and developments in Reception History, Cultural Transfer, and Entangled History, much scholarship on this topic differs little from that written a century ago. In this study, Markus Vinzent challenges the interpretation of the sources that have been used in the study of the Early Christian era. He brings a new approach to the topic by reading history backwards. Applying this methodology to four case studies, and using a range of media, he poses radically new questions on the famous 'Abercius' inscription, on the first extant apologist Aristides of Athens, on the prolific Hippolytus of Rome, and on Ignatius and the first non-canonical collection of letters. Vinzent's novel methodology of a retrospective writing thus challenges many fundamental and anachronistic assumptions about Early Christian history

Marcion and the dating of the synoptic gospels by Markus Vinzent( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are the Synoptic Gospels at odds with Early Christian art and archaeology? Art and archaeology cannot provide the material basis 'to secure the irrefutable inner continuity' of the Christian beginnings (Erich Dinkler); can the Synoptic Gospels step in? Their narratives, however, are as absent from the first hundred and fifty years of early Christianity as are their visual imageries. 'Many of the dates confidently assigned by modern experts to the New Testament documents', especially the Gospels, rest 'on presuppositions rather than facts' (J.A.T. Robinson). The present volume is the first systematic study of all available early evidence that we have about the first witness to our Gospel narratives, Marcion of Sinope. It evaluates our commonly known arguments for dating the Synoptic Gospels, elaborates on Marcion's crucial role in the Gospel making and argues for a re-dating of the Gospels to the years between 138 and 144 AD."--Page 4 of cover
Marcion of Sinope as religious entrepreneur by International conference on patristic studies( Book )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and Multiple languages and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marcion of Sinope, as the vast output of books and papers about this second century teacher has proven since the times when he was alive and still until today, is one of the most known and debated Christian entrepreneurs of the new religious Jesus-movement, perhaps the one who was responsible for the self-denomination 'Christianity'. In this volume papers have been collected that originated or were inspired by a workshop in 2014 at the Max-Weber-Kolleg, University of Erfurt, directed by Jan Bremmer, Jörg Rüpke, and Markus Vinzent. 'Marcion of Sinope as Religious Entrepreneur' is not just a volume on Marcion's texts, but also on his role and his reception in the second century, particularly in the making of Christianity."--

Studia patristica by British Patristics Conference( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2020 in English and Italian and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This one-hundredth volume of 'Studia Patristica' includes papers from the Sixth British Patristics conference, held in Birmingham in September 2016. Thirty-seven contributions from an international range of scholars provide new studies of many of the major subjects in patristic studies, from Tertullian to Maximus the Confessor by way of Origen, John Chrysostom, Jerome and Augustine. One theme of the conference, which was held in conjunction with the European Research Council COMPAUL project, was the tradition and reception of the letters of the Apostle Paul. This is reflected in several papers, including an examination of patristic evidence for the authorship of 'Ephesians' and an analysis of exegetical techniques employed in the Greek catena tradition on 'Galatians'. Two longer contributions, by plenary speakers Frances Young and Jennifer Strawbridge, offer an extended consideration of the early Christian exegesis of particular Pauline Epistles.0
