Item description for Athenagorae Qui Fertur: De Resurrectione Mortuorum (Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae) by M. Marcovich...
This monograph comprises a critical edition of Ps.-Athenagora "De Resurrectione Mortuorum", a complete edition of Arethas' Scholia on the treatise, and a critical edition of the extant fragments of "De Ressurectione" attributed to Justin Martyr. Athenagoras was a Christian apologist, who flourished in the second half of the 2nd century CE (ca. 180). Traditionally two extant Greek works have been attributed to him: a "Plea on Behalf of the Christians", probably addressed to the Roman emperors Marcus Aurelius and Commodus, and the "On the Resurrection of the Dead". The attribution of the latter treatise to Athenagoras has been a matter of dispute. In his introduction, the editor sides with those scholars denying Athenagoras' authorship, but ascribes its date to the end of the 2nd century.
