Der Aufsatz diskutiert den Wert von antiken medizinischen Texte für die Bibelexegese. Nach einer Definition dessen, was mit antiken medizinischen Texten gemeint ist, beschreibt er einige gegenwärtige Forschungsansätze, die diese Texte für die Interpretation der Bibel nutzen. Er zeigt ihren Wert insbesondere für die Interpretation biblischer Passagen mit Bezug auf das Atmen auf und kommt zu der Schlussfolgerung, dass sie für die biblische Exegese in der Tat wichtige Aspekte beisteuern können.

More about this publication?
  • The journal is concerned with early Christianity as a historical phenomenon. Thereby, Early Christianity aims to overcome certain limitations which have hindered the development of the discipline, including the concept of the "New Testament" itself. The journal, then, is taken to cover not only the first Christian century but also the second.

    This journal will not, however, give any special prominence to reception-history or to the second century. The total phenomenon called "early Christianity" comprises a kaleidoscopic range of individual phenomena, including communal structures, social norms, discursive practices, points of conflict, material remains, and much else – far more than just the production and reception of texts. This journal will strive to reflect this multiplicity of contexts, in the expectation of new light on our subject-matter from a variety of angles.
