This conference volume focuses on showing that investigating various aspects of the Christian movement's identity helps us to understand its historical reality. Whatever is known about identity from ancient times reaches us mostly through ancient texts. Thus many of the essays in this volume are devoted to analyzing New Testament texts and showing how they reveal the processes of identity formation. One type of evidence here is how New Testament texts compare with or treat older texts which are in the same normative tradition, in other words biblical and Jewish texts. Another group of essays deals with specific literary techniques used in the service of creating identity, such as personification, stereotyping or marginalizing others as well as looking at the relationship between different kinds of social identity. A third group of essays directs attention to the light that gender analysis casts on the shaping of Christian identity, pointing both to surprising similarities and differences from the surrounding culture. The final group of essays applies the insights of postcolonial theory and its sensitivity to power relationships and the political dimension of human reality.

Book Description Mohr Siebeck Gmbh & Co. K Aug 2008, 2008. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Earliest Christianity and its developing life-form is better understood through an analysis of the movement's identity. This does not consist mainly of ideas about how to understand oneself, even if texts are almost the only means available for grasping identity. It is rather a complex social reality with cognitive, ritual and moral dimensions, crystallized into social relations and institutions. Among the many approaches used in this conference volume are the analysis of intertextuality and techniques of textual identity construction, labeling and social cognition, gender analysis together with the power-sensitive postcolonial reading of ancient Christian texts. With contributions by: Per Jarle Bekken, Samuel Byrskog, Tobias Hägerland, Raimo Hakola, Fredrik Ivarsson, Thomas Kazen, Hans Leander, Judith Lieu, Halvor Moxnes, Christina Petterson, Rikard Roitto, Anna Rebecca Solevåg, Hanna Stenström, Lauri Thurén 341 pp. Englisch.
