Abstract

This paper explores the dynamic interplay between Christianity and the Roman Empire as articulated by Tertullian, a prominent figure in early Christian theology. Tertullian delves into the complex relationship between the burgeoning Christian faith and the established structures of the Roman Empire, highlighting the inherent tension between the two. Central to his analysis is the concept of dialogue, wherein Tertullian examines how Christians engage with the broader Roman society while maintaining their distinct religious identity. Furthermore, he discusses the conservative nature of Christian thought, emphasizing the preservation of core beliefs amidst external pressures. This paper provides insights into Tertullian’s perspective on the delicate balance between dialogue and the preservation of Christian values within the context of the Roman Empire.

提要

本文探討基督教與羅馬帝國之間的動態互動關係,正如早期基督教神學中的傑出人物特土良所闡述的那樣。特土良深入研究了新興的基督教信仰與羅馬帝國的既定結構之間的複雜關係,突出了兩者之間固有的緊張關係。特土良分析的核心是對話的概念,其中他考察了基督徒如何與更廣泛的羅馬社會交往,同時保持他們獨特的宗教身份。此外,他還討論了基督教思想的保守性,強調在外部壓力下保持核心信仰。本文提供了對特土良在羅馬帝國背景下對話和保存基督教價值觀之間微妙平衡的見解。
