Sophisten in Hellenismus und Kaiserzeit Orte, Methoden und Personen der Bildungsvermittlung by Beatrice Wyss( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der Forschung geläufig ist die Rede von einer ersten (5./4. Jh. v. Chr.) und der sog. Zweiten Sophistik (2. Jh. n. Chr). Aber auch die Literatur des Hellenismus und der frühen Kaiserzeit kennt zahlreiche Sophisten. Der Sophist, verstanden als (schlechter) Lehrer und Redner, Gegenspieler des Philosophen oder Vertreter der griechischen Bildung, bildet deshalb den Dreh-und Angelpunkt der Beiträge, die Schlaglichter auf Orte, Methoden und Personen der Bildungsvermittlung werfen. Sophisten wirken im Gymnasion, im Museion in Alexandreia, in Tempeln in Rom oder privaten Schulen in Ägypten und Judäa. Der vorliegende Band diskutiert neben diesen Orten die Methoden der Bildungsvermittlung und die soziale Herkunft der Lehrer. Weitere wichtige Aspekte sind die Konkurrenz als strukturierendes Element des Lebens eines Sophisten und das Bankett als Ort der Bildungsvermittlung. Die Beiträge zeigen, wie pagane und jüdische Denker, Platoniker und Stoiker Bildung als Weg zum richtigen Welt- und Gottesverständnis verstehen."--

This comprehensive geographical encyclopaedia, compiled around 530 A.D., catalogues some 3,600 names of places, mountains, lakes, rivers, waters and peoples from the ancient world. Particular attention is paid to the etymology of names and the grammatical derivations of the Ethnika . For cultural historical information - here with the evidence of the attributed "ations - Stephanos is often the sole source. This new critical edition replaces A. Meineke's long obsolete edition of 1849. The text of the directly recorded epitomes is accompanied by an apparatus of parallel terms which takes account of both the sources of the encyclopaedia and its later users. This first translation of the encyclopaedia in a modern language and the notes (particularly on language, onomastics and topography) open up the work to a wide circle of scholars engaged in studies of antiquity

Stephani Byzantii Ethnica : Recensuit Germanice vertit indicibus instruxit Margarethe Billerbeck by Stephanus von Byzanz( )

2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das umfangreiche geographische Lexikon, verfasst um 530 n. Chr., verzeichnet ca. 3.600 Orts-, Berg-, Gewässer- und Völkernamen der antiken Welt. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit gilt der Namensetymologie sowie der grammatischen Ableitung der Ethnika. Für die kulturhistorischen Angaben - hier mit Nachweis der Autorenzitate - ist Stephanos oft alleiniger Gewährsmann. Die neue kritische Edition ersetzt die längst überholte Ausgabe von A. Meineke (1849). Dem Text der direkt überlieferten Epitome ist ein Similienapparat beigegeben, welcher den Quellen des Lexikons sowie seinen späteren Benutzern Rechnung trägt. Die erstmalige Übersetzung der Ethnika in eine moderne Sprache und die Anmerkungen (bes. zu Sprache, Onomastik und Topographie) erschliessen das Werk einem breiten Kreis von Altertumswissenschaftlern

Der gekreuzigte Sophist by Beatrice Wyss( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zusammenfassung: The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that the term »sophists« became a term of abuse against religious adversaries in the 2nd cent. CE, not only in polemics between christians and pagans, as one could assume, but also in polemics between christians and between pagans. Against this background one understands why Lucian named Jesus of Nazareth a »crucified sophist« (Peregr. 13)

Philon aus Alexandreia und der fünfte Tag der Schöpfung by Beatrice Wyss( )

1 edition published in 2018 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zusammenfassung: Philo of Alexandria is influenced by three different traditions: (1) Judaism, (2) Greek philosophy, and (3) the Egyptian environment. In his account of the fifth day of creation (Opif.62-68), he follows the Stoic view on animals as non-rational beings; in his De animalibus he discusses the question of the rationality of animals with the same arguments one finds in contemporary pagan literature. Living in Alexandria, Philo was an eye-witness to the Egyptian worship of animals as manifestations of the divine. In denying animals rationality, he separates them from the divine because in his view, the human mind bears exclusive likeness to God (Opif.69)
