Item description for Religious Propaganda and Missionary Competition in the New Testament World: Essays Honoring Dieter Georgi (Supplements to Novum Testamentum) by Lukas Bormann...

"Religious Propaganda" is a pivotal concept for the Hellenistic and Roman epochs in the History of Religions. The term refers to the various competing religious and philosophical movements and currents during those periods. Renowned scholars (H. Attridge, K. Baltzer, J. Collins, A. Dewey, H. Koester, A.T. Kraabel, D. Luhrmann, J. Robinson, W. Schottroff, E. Schussler Fiorenza, A. Yarbro Collins and others) interpret Pagan, Jewish, and Christian sources with a view toward elucidating the confrontation of Jewish and Christian groups with their respective social, economic, religious, and political contexts. The authors seek to demonstrate the significance of missionary and propagandistic themes as well as strategies for the self-understanding of Jews and Christians at the turn of the eras. The articles, 25 in all, draw upon the broad expanse of scholarly work in the History of Religions pertaining to this period: the authors discuss methodology and the state of research, and they forge ahead in the exploration of the intertestamental and New Testament writings. FR "Religiose Propaganda" ist ein zentraler Begriff der Religionsgeschichte der hellenistisch-romischen Epoche. Er steht fur die Konkurrenz zwischen den verschiedenen religiosen und philosophischen Stromungen und Bewegungen dieser Zeit. Namhafte Wissenschaftler (H. Attridge, A. Dewey, K. Baltzer, J. Collins, A.Th. Kraabel, D. Luhrmann, H. Koester, J. Robinson, W. Schottroff, E. Schussler Fiorenza, A. Yarbro Collins u.a.) interpretieren pagane, judische und christliche Quellen, um die Auseinandersetzung judischer und christlicher Gruppen mit ihrer jeweiligen sozialen, okonomischen, religiosen und politischen Umwelt zu verdeutlichen. Sie belegen an ihnen die Bedeutung missionarischer und propagandistischer Themen und Techniken fur das Selbstverstandnis des Judentums und des Christentums um die Zeitenwende. Die insgesamt 25 Beitrage erschlieen den weiten Horizont religionsgeschichtlicher Arbeit zu dieser Epoche, informieren uber den Stand der Forschung und treiben die Erforschung der zwischentestamentlichen und neutestamentlichen Schriften und ihrer Zeit voran.
