Sensationell wie die Handschriftenfunde am Toten Meer war die Entdeckung der koptische-gnostischen Texte in der Mitte der vierziger Jahre bei Nag Hammadi in Mittelägypten. Sie gaben der Forschung zum ersten Male ausreichendes Quellenmaterial über die Gnosis an die Hand, jene Religion der ersten nachchristlichen Jahrhunderte, deren große Bedeutung für die spätantike Religionsgeschichte unbestritten ist. In der jüdischen Weisheitslehre und Apokalyptik, in iranisch-zoroastrischen Religionsvorstellungen und im aufklärerischen griechischen Denken sind ihre Wurzeln zu suchen. Als sie christliches Gedankengut in eigenwilliger Auslegung übernahm, wurde sie zu einer Gefahr für die christliche Kirche und zwang diese zu ständiger Auseinandersetzung und Überprüfung der eigenen Lehre. Kurt Rudolph, ausgewiesener Fachmann auf dem Gebiet der spätantiken Religionsgeschichte, geht den Quellen nach und gibt ein umfassendes Bild von Wesen, Lehre, Geschichte und Wirkung dieser Religion, die ihren Anhängern Erlösung durch" Gnosis"-" Wissen, Erkenntnis"--Versprach

The city of God by Augustine( Book )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saint Augustine is often regardarded as the most influential Christian thinker after Saint Paul, and City of God is his materpiece, a cast synthesis of religious and secular knowledge. It began as a reply to the charge that Christian otherworldiness was causing the decline of the Roman Empire. Augustine produced a wealth of evidence to prove that paganism bore within itself the seeds of its own destruction. Then he proceeded to his larger theme, a cosmic interpretation of in terms of the struggle between good and evilL the City of God in conflict with the Earthly City or the City of the Devil. This, the first serious attempt at a philosophy of history, was to have incalculable influence in forming the Western mind on the relations of church and state, and on the Christianʹs place in the temporal order. -- Description from http://www.amazon.co.uk/ (Dec. 10, 2012)

Main description: Carl Andresen (1909-1985) stellte Fragen von bleibender Relevanz: Wie verhielt sich das frühe Christentum zur antiken Geistesgeschichte, wie ordnete es Theologie und Philosophie einander zu, wie vertrat es den Wahrheitsanspruch der Bibel gegenüber konkurrierenden Denksystemen? In den vorliegenden Studien wird die Begegnung von Antike und Christentum einschließlich ihrer Wirkungsgeschichte detailreich und umfassend rekonstruiert. Das Christentum erweist sich als integraler Teil seiner Welt, wobei es diese Umwelt selbst prägte und umgestaltete
