Download Zeno von Verona zu heidnischer Kultur und christlicher by Bärbel Dümler PDF

By Bärbel Dümler

Bärbel Dümler untersucht die Traktate des Zeno von Verona, das älteste erhaltene lateinische Predigtcorpus aus der Zeit zwischen 360 und 380 n. Chr. Auf philologischer Grundlage analysiert sie zunächst das Verhältnis des Bischofs zum Heidentum entsprechend dem stoischen Schema der Theologia tripartita. Zenos Äußerungen zu heidnischem Kult, Göttern und mythologischen Gestalten und deren Darstellung sowie zu Philosophie und Intellektualität lassen erkennen, dass er das Christentum für die in jeder Hinsicht überlegenere faith hält. Anschließend widmet sich die Autorin dem Gegenentwurf des Zeno zur von ihm verworfenen heidnischen Kultur: Entscheidender Unterschied ist die Ausrichtung aller Komponenten des Gegenentwurfs, nämlich religiösen Sachwissens, ethischen Wissens und ethischen Könnens, auf Gott hin, wie dies im auf Meister Eckhard zurückgehenden, hier rückübertragenen Terminus 'Bildung' zum Ausdruck kommt.
