Synopsis: English summary: To the modern reader, Pope Gregory the Great's (590-604) comprehensive interpretation of Job often seems to be an arbitrary allegorization which is not backed up by the text and the historical situation at the end of the 6th century. Katharina Geschat shows however that Gregory interpreted the biblical text completely from the standpoint of the requirements of church office-holders in the post-Justinian period. In continuation of Augustinian theology and based on neo- Chalcedonian imperial theology, he sees the figure of Job as a symbol of Christ and his body, the church. Christ's two natures are for Gregory the key to the connection between the vita contemplativa and the vita activa, which the office-holders of the church are supposed to live in imitation of Christ. German description: Dem modernen Leser erscheint Papst Gregors des Grossen (590-604) umfangreiche Auslegung zum Buch Hiob nicht selten als willkurliche Allegorese ohne Anhalt am Text und an der historischen Situation des ausgehenden 6. Jahrhunderts. Katharina Greschat zeigt jedoch, dass Gregor den biblischen Text ganz aus dem Blickwinkel der Erfordernisse kirchlicher Amtstrager im nachjustinianischen Zeitalter interpretiert. In Fortschreibung augustinischer Theologie und von neuchalkedonensischer Reichstheologie ausgehend versteht er die Gestalt des Hiob als Sinnbild fur Christus und seinen Leib, der Kirche. Dessen zwei Naturen erweisen sich fur Gregor als Schlussel fur die Verbindung zwischen der vita contemplativa und der vita activa, die die kirchlichen Amtstrager in der Nachahmung Christi leben sollen.
