The treatise “De Graecarum affectionum curatione” (Therapeia of the Greek Maladies) is considered a highlight of Christian apologetic literature. Bishop Theodoret of Cyrrhus(ca AD 393 - ca AD 460) disputes the prejudice that the Christian faith was incompatible with classical education and civilization. He shows the integrating ability of globally aligned Christianity to establish peaceful local communities. The Greek tradition itself demonstrates the truth of Christianity.
The text is placed in the context of Theodoret’s life and works. Its literary character, place in Christian apologetics, sources, cultural and historical context, and the possibility that Syrian Antioch was its place of origin are all examined. The present edition contains the critical text by Raeder and a German translation with notes.


Die Schrift „De Graecarum affectionum curatione“ (Heilung der griechischen Krankheiten) ist ein Höhe¬punkt der Apologetik der Alten Kirche. Theodoret (circa 393 – circa 460), Bischof von Kyrrhos, tritt dem Vorurteil entgegen, Glaube und Lebensführung der Christen vertrügen sich nicht mit klassischer Bildung und Gesittung. Er wirbt für die integrative Fähigkeit des global ausgerichteten Christentums, friedliche lokale Ge¬meinschaften eta¬blieren zu können. Die griechische Tradition selbst bezeuge die Wahrheit des Christentums.
Die Schrift wird in Leben und Werk Theodorets eingeordnet, ihre literarische Eigenart, ihr Platz in der christlichen Apologetik, ihre Quellen, ihr soziales und historisches Umfeld und Antiochien als möglicher Entstehungsort werden untersucht. Die vorliegende Ausgabe enthält den kritischen Text von Raeder und eine deutsche Übersetzung mit kommentierenden Anmerkungen.
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 is the first critical edition of Gregory of Nyssa's In Hexaemeron based on all known manuscripts, introduced by a complete discussion of the textual transmission and accompanied by extensive annotations on the biblical, classical and patristic sources, and indices.
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.
