Erasmus' Annotations on the New Testament

Galatians to the Apocalypse. Facsimile of the Final Latin Text with All Earlier Variants


Desiderius Erasmus

Edited by Anne Reeve

Erasmus' revolutionary Latin and Greek New Testament of 1516 was accompanied by annotations intended to be brief but which were already challenging and often discursive. This edition gives them with all their variants.
The years 1519, 1523, 1527 and 1535 saw those notes grow and grow in number, size and importance. Some treat just those vital minutiæ which led Aquinas, say, into error or folly when he ignored or neglected them: others form ever-expanding essays spreading over several pages and bringing Erasmus into the centre of controversy.
Here, for the first time ever, the annotations are edited and dated. They now form an indispensable companion to Erasmus' letters as a major source of our knowledge of the nuances and development of his thought and scholarship.

THE STUDY OF ACTS BEFORE THE REFORMATION A BIBLIOGRAPHIC INTRODUCTION by PAUL F. STUEHRENBERG Yale University Divinity Library The first fifteen centuries of the Christian Era generally receive short shrift in histories of Biblical scholarship. This is particularly true in the case of the book


Jonathan A. Linebaugh

In God, Grace, and Righteousness in Wisdom of Solomon and Paul's Letter to the Romans, Jonathan A. Linebaugh places the Wisdom of Solomon and the Letter to the Romans in conversation. Both texts discuss the relationship of Jew and Gentile, the meaning of God's grace and righteousness, and offer readings of Israel's scripture. These shared themes provide talking-points, initiating a dialogue on anthropology, soteriology, and hermeneutics. By listening in on this conversation, Linebaugh demonstrates that while these texts have much in common, the theologies they articulate are ultimately incommensurable because they think from different events - Wisdom from the pre-creational order crafted by Sophia and exemplified in the Exodus; Paul from the incongruous gift of Christ which justifies the ungodly.

The Jewish Roots of Christological Monotheism

Papers from the St. Andrews Conference on the Historical Origins of the Worship of Jesus


Edited by Newman, James Davila and Lewis

Although there are many studies of second Temple Judaism (in general) and of Christianity's relationship with Judaism (in particular), there has not been a sustained and comprehensive investigation of the way in which Christ-devotion in the first two centuries of the common era represents a manifestation of Jewish monotheism.
This volume fills this gap in four distinctive ways: (1) by re-examining the theological force of "monotheism" during the Second Temple period; (2) by retracing the historical steps of Christianity's adaptation / mutation / re-definition of Jewish monotheism; (3) by exploring and debating the influence of non-Jewish traditions on this process; and (4) by mapping the ways in which Christianity's unique appropriation of Jewish monotheism helps explain the intriguing relationships among emerging Christian, Jewish and Gnostic communities.
In particular, the eighteen essays demonstrate how the creation mythic of narratives, the revelatory power of mystical experiences, and the sociology of community formation capitalized on the Jewish meditoral tradition to encourage and legitimate the Christian praxis of Christ-devotion.

The Translation and Meaning of Mark 8:33c

Gerald Wheaton

between the Athenian aristocracy led by Cimon and the multitude seeking democracy led by Ephialtes and aided by Pericles, Plutarch recounts the turning of the tide toward democracy. During the exile of Cimon, Ephialtes led a democratic reformation on behalf of the people, aided, as Plutarch indicates, by

the lenses of the Reformation or traditional exegesis. And since anti-Semitism has sometimes crept into NT exegesis, Sanders' work rightly warns us against reading Judaism with jaundiced and unsympathetic eyes. While the motive behind some of the recent interpretations is laudable, this does not mean

Adaptability in Epicurean and Early Christian Psychagogy


Clarence E. Glad

As Paul guides and educates his converts he functions as a psychagogue (“leader of souls”), adapting his leadership style as required in each individual case. Pauline psychagogy resembles Epicurean psychagogy in the way persons enjoying a superior moral status and spiritual aptitude help to nurture and correct others, guiding their souls in moral and religious (re)formation.
This study relates Epicurean psychagogy of late Republican times to early Christian psychagogy on the basis of an investigation which places the practice in the wider socio-cultural perspective, contextualising it in Greco-Roman literature treating friendship and flattery and the importance of adaptability in moral guidance.
Pauline studies are advanced by the introduction of new material into the discussion of the Corinthian correspondence which throws light on Paul's debate with his recalcitrant critics.
