Item description for Philippi: Stadt Und Christengemeinde Zur Zeit Des Paulus (Supplements to Novum Testamentum) (German Edition) by Lukas Bormann...

The Roman colony of Philippi is the site upon which Paul founded his first European congregation. There, he encountered a political entity which bore the stamp of Roman culture through and through. Part I describes Philippi's political and religious situation based on numismatic, epigraphical, archaeological and literary sources. Part II reconstructs the relationship between Paul, the congregation, and the city of Philippi, and demonstrates the influence which the Roman environment exerted on the church's organization and preaching. The work reaches the conclusion that the Philippean community assumed an active and self-confident role in implementing its mission. In so doing, it clashed with the Roman authorities and their insistence upon a religious praxis that did not call into question the principles or existence of the Roman State. The book contributes to the interpretation of the Epistle to the Philippians as well as to the history of early Christianity and the history of Religions during the first century. FR Die romische Kolonie Philippi ist der Ort, an dem Paulus seine erste Gemeinde in Europa grundet. Dort trifft er auf ein Gemeinwesen, das ganz von der romischen Kultur gepragt ist. Teil I stellt die politische und religiose Lage Philippis auf der Grundlage numismatischer, epigraphischer, archaologischer und literarischer Quellen dar. Teil II rekonstruiert das Verhaltnis zwischen Paulus, der Philippergemeinde und der Stadt und weist den Einflu der romischen Umwelt auf Gemeindeorganisation und Verkundigung in Philippi nach. Die Arbeit kommt zu dem Ergebnis, da die Gemeinde in Philippi eine selbstbewute und aktive Rolle in der Mission spielt und dadurch in Konflikt mit der romischen Obrigkeit und deren Forderung nach einer staatsloyalen religiosen Praxis gerat. Das Buch leistet einen Beitrag zur Auslegung des Philipperbriefes, zur Geschichte des fruhesten Christentums und zur Religionsgeschichte des 1. Jahrhunderts.
