Latin is the language in which the New Testament was copied, read, and studied for over a millennium. The remains of the initial "Old Latin" version preserve important testimony for early forms of text and the way in which the Bible was understood by the first translators. Successive revisions resulted in a standard version subsequently known as the Vulgate which, along with the creation of influential commentaries by scholars such as Jerome and Augustine, shaped theology and exegesis for many centuries. Latin gospel books and other New Testament manuscripts illustrate the continuous tradition of Christian book culture, from the late antique codices of Roman North Africa and Italy to the glorious creations of Northumbrian scriptoria, the pandects of the Carolingian era, eleventh-century Giant Bibles, and the Paris Bibles associated with the rise of the university. In The Latin New Testament, H.A.G. Houghton provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and development of the Latin New Testament. Drawing on major editions and recent advances in scholarship, he offers a new synthesis which brings together evidence from Christian authors and biblical manuscripts from earliest times to the late Middle Ages. All manuscripts identified as containing Old Latin evidence for the New Testament are described in a catalogue, along with those featured in the two principal modern editions of the Vulgate. A user's guide is provided for these editions and the other key scholarly tools for studying the Latin New Testament.

Die kritische Neuedition (Editio Critica Maior) der Johannesapokalypse konfrontiert die Herausgeber mit einer ebenso außergewöhnlichen wie faszinierenden Textüberlieferung. Im Diskurs mit der zum Teil nicht unproblematischen Editions- und Forschungsgeschichte sind umfangreiche textkritische und textgeschichtliche Untersuchungen als Vorbedingung für die anstehende Textkonstitution unumgänglich. Der Sammelband dokumentiert in insgesamt 13 Einzelbeiträgen die laufenden Arbeiten an der Editio Critica Maior der Johannesapokalypse und stellt einem textkritisch wie theologisch interessierten Publikum wichtige aktuelle Ergebnisse aus der aktuellen Arbeit vor. Neben Analysen zum griechischen Text beinhaltet der Band neue kritische Editionen der sahidischen und der syrischen (genauerhin harklensischen) Version sowie weitere Untersuchungen zur äthiopischen, koptischen und lateinischen Überlieferung der Johannesapokalypse. Beiträge zur Scholien-Kommentierung und zur Kunstgeschichte öffnen die engere textkritische Sichtweise hin zur weiteren Rezeptionsgeschichte dieses geistesgeschichtlich wirkungsmächtigen Werkes.

The Oxford Handbook Of Johannine Studies

The contribution of the Johannine literature to the development of Christian theology, and particularly to Christology, is uncontested, although careful distinction between the implications of its language, especially that of sonship, in a first century 'Jewish' context and in the subsequent theological controversies of the early Church has been particularly important if not always easily sustained. Recent study has shaken off the weight of subsequent Christian appropriation of Johannine language which has sometimes made readers immune to the ambiguities and challenging tensions in its thought. The Oxford Handbook of Johannine Studies begins with chapters concentrating on discussions of the background and context of the Johannine literature, leading to the different ways of reading the text, and thence to the primary theological themes within them, before concluding with some discussion of the reception of the Johannine literature in the early church. Inevitably, given their different genres and levels of complexity, some chapters pay most if not all attention to the Gospel, whereas others are more able to give a more substantial place to the letters. All the contributors have themselves made significant contributions to their topic. They have sought to give a balanced introduction to the relevant scholarship and debate, but they have also been able to present the issues from their own perspective. The Handbook will help those less familiar with the Johannine literature to get a sense of the major areas of debate and why the field continues to be one of vibrant and exciting study, and that those who are already part of the conversation will find new insights to enliven their own on-going engagement with these writings.

English summary: When the so-called Decian persecution of Christians came to an end in the year 251 in Rome, an intra-church drama began to unfold, first causing an uproar in the Roman community and later spreading to all Christians in the Roman Empire. Propagating a "pure" church with no room for sinners, Novatian founded a separate church that quickly drew followers from all over the Roman world. Who were these believers who appear to have influenced the development of Christianity in large parts of western Asia Minor? Their teachings were uncomfortable, strict and rigorous and their perception of God often was considered merciless. Nevertheless, the Novatians had an attractiveness that allowed them to survive despite hostilities and persecutions. Vera Hirschmann investigates why the Novatians were that appealing, consciously avoiding to classify the Novatian Church as a heresy right at the outset, but rather as a real alternative for many Christians. German description: Als in Rom im Jahre 251 die sogenannte decische Christenverfolgung ein Ende fand, begann ein innerkirchliches Drama der zuerst in der romischen Gemeinde, spater aber unter allen Christen in der damaligen Welt Aufruhr schurte. Beseelt von dem Gedanken einer "reinen" Kirche, in der die Sunder keinen Platz mehr haben sollten, grundete Novatian eine Sonderkirche, die schnell im Romischen Reich Anhanger fand. Wer waren diese Glaubigen, die die christliche Entwicklung grosser Teile des westlichen Kleinasiens beeinflusst zu haben schienen? Ihre Lehren waren unbequem, streng und rigoristisch, ihre Auffassung von Gott in den Augen anderer Christen oft unbarmherzig. Dennoch besassen sie eine Attraktivitat, die ihnen (wie lange ) ein Uberleben trotz Anfeindungen und Verfolgungen ermoglicht hatte. Vera Hirschmann spurt dieser Attraktivitat nach und setzt sich mit der Kirche der Novatianer bewusst nicht von vornherein als einer "Haresie," sondern als einer echten Alternativ e fur viele damalige Christen auseinander.

What sort of Bible did Augustine have? How did he quote from it - and was he accurate? Do Augustine's biblical citations transmit readings not found in any surviving manuscripts? This book is part of a major project on the Old Latin versions of the Gospel according to John, and uses Augustine as a test-case to examine the importance of the evidence provided by the Church Fathers for the text of the Gospels. The early history of the Latin Bible is reconstructed from Augustine's comments in his treatise De doctrina christiana (On Christian teaching). Details are assembled from sermons, letters, and other writings to show how Augustine and his contemporaries used the Bible in the liturgy of the Church, public debates, and in composing their own works. Augustine's own methods of citing the Bible are analysed, and features are identified which are characteristic of citations produced from memory rather than read from a gospel codex. The second part of the book is a chronological survey of the biblical text in Augustine's works, showing how he switched from using the older versions of the Gospel to the revised text of Jerome, which later became known as the Vulgate. Finally, a verse by verse commentary is provided on all the significant readings in Augustine's text of John, assessing their significance for the history of the Latin Bible, and in some cases the Greek tradition as well. Details are also given of Augustine's exegesis of particular verses of the Gospel, making this an indispensable handbook for biblical scholars and church historians alike.
