Item description for The Past as Legacy by Marianne Palmer Bonz...
Overview This study addresses the genre and interpretation of Luke-Acts in the light of tis contemporary social, literary, and ideological milieu, particularly as these elements are reflected in the Latin epics contemporary with Luke-Acts and in their famous Augustan prototype, Virgil's Aeneid. Literary evidence indicating that Virgil's works had been translated into Greek prose by the middle of the first century makes this line of inquiry especially promising. Interpreting Luke-Acts as a prose adaptation of heroic or historical epic provides a hermeneutical model that is both universal in its theological message and essentially popular in its narrative presentation.
Publishers Description Argues that the historical occasion of the great literary epics was an analogous situation for the composition of Luke-Acts.
