Gregorii Nysseni, De anima et resurrectione

Opera dogmatica minora. Pars III

Andreas Spira

Edited by Wolfram Brinker and Ekkehard Mühlenberg

In his 'De anima et resurrectione', the church father Gregory of Nyssa (4th century A.D.) presents the Christian doctrine of resurrection. His argument is based on the ancient understanding of the soul. Gregory continues, both in form (dialogue) and in content (teaching on the immortality of the soul), the philosophical tradition, especially in its Platonic shape. But he develops it further by seeking a logical foundation for the Christian doctrine of the resurrection of the body including apokatastasis. This Greek text presents a first critical edition based on all the available manuscripts (72). It is, in method as well as in its presentation, part of the famous edition Gregorii Nysseni Opera, going back to Werner Jaeger and Hermann Langerbeck.

In dieser Schrift legt der Kirchenvater Gregor von Nyssa (4. Jahrhundert) die christliche Lehre von der Auferstehung dar. Seine Argumentation geht von der Definition der Seele aus. Dabei knüpft er, in Form (Dialog) und Inhalt (Unsterblichkeitslehre), an philosophische Traditionen an. Die Nähe zu Plato ist groß. Aber Gregor versucht darüber hinaus zu beweisen, dass die christliche Lehre von der Auferstehung des Leibes logisch ist und die Apokatastasis einschließt.
Der griechische Text ist die erste kritische Edition, die sich auf alle erreichbaren Handschriften (72) stützt. In Arbeitsmethode und Textpräsentation reiht sie sich in die große Ausgabe Gregorii Nysseni Opera, die Werner Jaeger und Hermann Langerbeck begründet haben, ein.

This book provides the Greek text of the Epistula canonica by Gregory of Nyssa. It is a critical edition based on the examination of ca. 150 manuscripts. The preface analyzes the transmission of the text in great detail. Gregory's canonical letter has been part of the canonical letters of the Fathers from the beginning of such collections. The example of a single letter within these collections gives an important insight into the nomocanon-tradition.
Gregory's letter is of great interest. It is the only canonical writing presenting a theoretical basis for the canonical penalties determining the times of exclusion from the congregation's worship and the gradual return of the penitens to full communion.
Das Buch enthält den griechischen Text der Epistula canonica Gregors von Nyssa. Die kritische Edition gründet sich auf ca. 150 Handschriften. In der Praefatio wird die Textüberlieferung detailliert analysiert. Gregors kanonischer Brief war von Anfang an in die Sammlung der kanonischen Väterbriefe einbezogen. Anhand eines einzigen Briefes ergeben sich bedeutsame Einsichten in die Überlieferung des "Nomokanons".
Gregors Brief ist hochinteressant. Er ist die einzige kanonische Schrift, die eine theoretische Basis für die Bußstufen ausarbeitet. Bußstrafen sind Zeiten des Ausschlusses aus dem Gemeindegottesdienst und die stufenweise Reintegration der Büßer zu voller Gemeinschaft.

This book provides transcriptions and images of some of the oldest parchment manuscripts of the Gospel of John in Greek. It contains also a complete critical apparatus of all the parchment manuscripts of John, including such important manuscripts as Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus. The transcriptions and plates are restricted to fragmentary and difficult-to-read copies. These havereceived the same detailed treatment as was used by the International Greek New Testament Project to make an edition of the papyri of John (Brill: 1995). The International Greek New Testament Project is a European-American project currently collaborating with the Institut für neutestamentliche Textforschung (Münster, Germany) to make a critical edition of the Gospel of John in the Editio Critica Maior.
