Der vorliegende Sammelband zur Hermeneutik der fruhchristlichen Wundererzahlungen bundelt den aktuellen Forschungsstand und fuhrt die Diskussion weiter. Neben der Erorterung von Grundfragen werden die fruhchristlichen Wundergeschichten vor dem Hintergrund ihres antiken Umfelds beleuchtet. Es schliessen sich Erwagungen zur sprachlichen Gestalt, narratologischen Struktur und literarischen Form an. Den Abschluss bildet eine Reihe von Beitragen, die sich gezielt mit der Gegenwartsbedeutung der Texte beschaftigen. Neben tiefenpsychologischen, feministischen und kulturanthropologischen Zugangen kommt dabei auch die Bedeutung der fruhchristlichen Wundergeschichten fur die Praxisfelder Schule und Diakonie zur Sprache.
