Der Band versammelt neue Forschungsbeiträge zu Marcion, dem bedeutendsten Ketzer der christlichen Antike, und setzt sich dabei insbesondere mit Adolf von Harnacks epochaler Marcioninterpretation auseinander. Harnacks Bild von Marcion als eines biblizistischen Theologen und treuen Paulusschülers, der den theologischen Entwicklungen des 2. Jahrhunderts fremd gegenübersteht, hat sich als historisch fragwürdige Modernisierung erwiesen. Die einzelnen Beiträge des Bandes ordnen Marcion und die marcionitische Kirche wieder in ihren historischen Kontext ein. Erstmals werden auch die theologiegeschichtlichen Hintergründe der Marciondeutung Harnacks und ihre Rezeption im 20. Jahrhundert gründlicher beleuchtet.

The book deals with thinkers and movements that were embraced by many second-century religious seekers but which are now largely forgotten or known only as "heretics": Basilides, Sethianism, Valentinus' school, Marcion, Tatian, Bardaisan, Montanists, Cerinthus, Ebionites, Nazarenes, Jewish-Christianity of the "Pseudo-Clementines," and Elchasites.

Marcion of Sinope, as the vast output of books and papers about this second century teacher has proven since the times when he was alive and still until today, is one of the most known and debated Christian entrepreneurs of the new religious Jesus-movement, perhaps the one who was responsible for the self-denomination 'Christianity'. In this volume papers have been collected that originated or were inspired by a workshop in 2014 at the Max-Weber-Kolleg, University of Erfurt, directed by Jan Bremmer, Jorg Rupke and Markus Vinzent. 'Marcion of Sinope as Religious Entrepreneur' is not just a volume on Marcion's texts, but also on his role and his reception in the second century, particularly in the making of Christianity.
We should start by widening our historical perspective when discussing Marcion (and his gospel): The quest about Marcion and his impact on the development of early Christian literature exceeds studying a phenomenon – it always has to ...

Jerald Bauer's Westminster Dictionary of Church History was originally published in 1969 and has ably served an entire generation of pastors, students, and scholars over the last decades of the twentieth century. In recognition of both the dictionary's age and the latest developments in patristics and other fields of study, Westminster John Knox Press commissioned this volume to continue in the previous work's tradition by providing up-to-date and immediate, authoritative, and introductory definitions and explanations of the major personalities, events, facts, and movements in the history of Christianity. Volume One covers the early, medieval, and Reformation periods and contains nearly fourteen hundred articles written by more than two hundred contributors. Volume Two will cover the modern period, from 1700 on.

The Old Testament constitutes the majority of the Christian Bible and provides much of the language of Christian faith. However, many churches tend to neglect this crucial part of Scripture. This timely book details a number of ways the Old Testament is showing signs of decay, demise, and imminent death in the church. Brent Strawn reminds us of the Old Testament's important role in Christian faith and practice, criticizes current misunderstandings that contribute to its neglect, and offers ways to revitalize its use in the church.

A comprehensive and authoritative account of the 'heretic' Marcion, this volume traces the development of the concept and language of heresy in the setting of an exploration of second-century Christian intellectual debate. Judith M. Lieu analyses accounts of Marcion by the major early Christian polemicists who shaped the idea of heresy, including Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Epiphanius of Salamis, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and Ephraem Syrus. She examines Marcion's Gospel, Apostolikon, and Antitheses in detail and compares his principles with those of contemporary Christian and non-Christian thinkers, covering a wide range of controversial issues: the nature of God, the relation of the divine to creation, the person of Jesus, the interpretation of Scripture, the nature of salvation, and the appropriate lifestyle of adherents. In this innovative study, Marcion emerges as a distinctive, creative figure who addressed widespread concerns within second-century Christian diversity.
Here there is also that continuing tension between the desire to locate Marcion among other heretics and the recognition ... with Martin Meiser, Marcion und seine kirchengeschichtliche Wirkung / Marcion and His Impact on Church History: ...

Who was Paul of Tarsus? Radical visionary of a new age? Gender-liberating progressive? Great defender of orthodoxy? In Remembering Paul, Benjamin L. White offers a critique of early Christian claims about the "real" Paul in the second century C.E.--a period in which apostolic memory was highly contested--and sets these ancient contests alongside their modern counterpart: attempts to rescue the "historical" Paul from his "canonical" entrapments. White charts the rise and fall of various narratives about Paul and argues that Christians of the second century had no access to the "real" Paul. Through the selection, combination, and interpretation of pieces of a diverse earlier layer of the Pauline tradition, Christians defended images of the Apostle that were important for forming collective identity.
Cf., for instance, the influence of Harnack on Knox, Marcion and the New Testament, and R. Joseph Hoffmann, On the Restitution of Christianity: An Essay on the Development of Radical Paulinist Theology in the Second Century (AARAS 46; ...
